Las Islas is a one-of-a-kind experience, so wonderful that you easily overlook minor faults. To stay in a beautiful treetop hut overlooking the Caribbean, with a deck, jacuzzi, & a room that completely opens to the outside - it's magical and worth every penny, having saved money elsewhere in Columbia. The grounds and the staff are amazing - friendly, accommodating, kind. With the price of a stay, you also get access to the smaller Isleta, by boat, a secluded beach, both serene and convenient with amenities like showers, bar, pool, hammocks, shelter, etc... We also enjoyed the night boat tour to swim amidst bio-lumenescent photoplankton. The grounds are meticulously groomed, with boardwalks that meander through the forest. The beauty of the trees and mangroves are spectacularly maintained, with the bungalows and treehouses surgically placed within -as if they grew from the forest. The location is great. Sure it's an hour boat ride from Cartegena but they make that enjoyable and convenient. If you were any closer to Playa Blanca and the party-lifestyle, you'd regret it. This place is more of a luxury retreat in a spectacular setting - fantasy island. They'd benefit with a 2nd dinner option because if you stay more than 2 nights, the nice restaurant does get a little old. The music that's piped in there is truly awful (Find some more authentic music to match the authenticity of the place). Water went out twice, so there are some rustic elements within the luxury.
