If you are looking for a beautiful, serene place to spend your time on San Andres, you will not find a better location than the recently established Playa Tranquilo. Located a short 20-minute bus ride from town with gorgeous views of the rocky beach as well as easy access for swimming or snorkeling or, if you prefer, you can lounge...

Playa Tranquilo is a insiders tip far away from all the downtown excitement of San Andres. The appartment and the entire property is a nice and cozy place to hang out. The service was excellent. No matter if you want to go diving, rent a golf cart or the housekeeping, there wasn't anything which wasn't taken care of. The staff...

My wife and 17 month year old stayed for two nights here and it was not enough! I became addicted to diving here as the conditions are great and the hotel is perfectly situated near the best diving sites on the island. Literally you can grab a mask and fins and walk out across the road and you're in the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Playa Tranquilo is a Boutique Hotel that is separated into three luxurious options, on four lush acres of sea front property - The House, the Apartment and the Hotel (currently under renovation). Unlike other hotels, our goal is to custom tailor a uniquely fabulous experience for each and every guest. If you choose the House or the Apartment, you will be the only guests in that residence. As a guest of our Hotel, you will feel equally secluded. Our guests prefer staying with us because they feel like they are staying at an exclusive residence on the island, and not a suffocating resort. Our property is nestled on the less developed side of San Andres, a short 15 minutes from the city center/airport. Playa Tranquilo is an island of tranquility unto itself. Whether you are interested in scuba diving, lounging by the pool, touring the islands, having a chef prepare all of your meals, popping into the sea directly outside our gate or just settling into a hammock to enjoy the sunset with an aperitif - we have it all and would be more than happy to customize your time (see services page) at Playa Tranquilo. You can be as spoiled, or as self-sufficient as you like in this idyllic setting. ... more   less
