Hotel Bahia Sardina on San Andres Island is another choice in addition to the Decameron Hotels on SAI. it is probably only a 2.5 star Hotel but it is very clean and adequate for budget travel. Like a Quality Inn here in the states. We spent 10 nights at this hotel in March of 2004. Previously we had stayed at the Decameron San Luis and another called the Portobelo. (Portobelo for backpacker types only I would say!) The Bahia Sardina is located on the main beach in town. It is a very well kept hotel and we paid like $30 a night in Colombian pesos for the 3 of us including two meals a day. The meals were not buffet but were adequate although we got kind of bored with the cuisine after a week or so. They have a small pool off to the side in you get tired of the beach and sea right in front. This hotel mostly caters to Colombians but is a viable option for those seeking lodging in some place other than the Decameron chain hotels. Each room also has electronic safe deposit boxes.
We have visited San Andres 3 times in 2002, 2003 and 2004. We have visited Hawaii, (Maui and Honolulu Island), Punta Cana Dominican Republic, Aruba, Cancun and Maya Riviera, St. Croix USVI, Tela and Roatan Island Honduras, Costa Rica, Caribbean and Pacific Coasts of Costa Rica and Cartagena, Colombia. I prefer San Andres Island more than any of these other places although each one above has its pluses and minuses.
