Aquarium San Andres was one of our best stays, thanks to the spacious rooms and nice balcony, the amazing private beaches (especially the rocky cay) which is fabulous. The only down side are the food & drinks which are not the best quality, but still quite good.

What I loved: the view of our room. What I liked: the place is wonderful, the staff is friendly and helpful. What I would expect more: included meals and beverage - that could be really better. What I didn't like: altough there is a big sign "swim at your own risk" they do no permit you to enter the beautiful...

The Decameron Hotel Aquarium is good. It's not awesome but it's not bad either. It's a bad 4-Star hotel but it would be a really good 3-star hotel. CLEANLINESS: The room is not so clean, it's not disgusting or something but you surely find some Latina hair laying around and the windows are really dirty. Big lack: No toilet brush...

Very unique resort, most of the rooms are actually built in the ocean. There are other little islands to visit close by, by boat or a water motor. I gave it a 3 star because of the fact that one has to wake up very early to stand in impossible line to make a restaurant reservation, and most of the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the midst of an Antillean environment, this resort has an exceptional architecture with circular towers overlooking the sea at ‘Punta Hansa’ – at the northern end of the Island of San Andres – which allow for wonderful panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea. These buildings are alongside a long wooden dock that leads to a natural pool in the sea and with an aquatic platform ideal for snorkeling and other water sports. The Decameron Aquarium is located approximately 10 minutes from the airport and is a well sought out location for tourists since the longest and most beautiful beach of the island is located only a few blocks away, surrounded by a boardwalk, parallel to a commercial area with restaurants, discos and the most exclusive bars. You will enjoy an enchanting paradise that can be explored completely on foot and where a cultural mixture of English, Spanish, Pirates and Corsairs can be explored. ... more   less
