MY VISIT TO PARADISE IN COLOMBIA We had a fantastic experience with my sisters. It was exactly what we were looking for: relaxation, contact with nature, amazing beach and swim in warm water. The beach is only 5 minutes away . To get there walk in a pathway full of trees , you could hear and see the magnificence of Colombian nature. We did some expeditions in the "manglares" where we take a boat and we could observe the tropical coastal vegetation.
Inside the hotel, we had a great time in the "natural pool" where the water is warm and nice. The food was exquisite, fresh fish and typical Colombian flavors. The staff was very helpful and always trying to provide the best customer service. Totally recommend this place!!!Read Less

A pearl on the Isla GrandeI loved every second of our staying in this hotel. The staff is kind and friendly, the food is amazing and cooked fresh every day. You can buy fresh lobster and crabs from a local fisherman who passes by every morning and the staff of the hotel will cook it for you. The location is spectacular and the hotel is in a quiet position, far away from constantly passing boats. At night you can sit in the shore and stare at the incredible sky. The hotel can arrange for you scuba diving lesson (absolutely worth it!) and an excursion to the Laguna Encantada, where the plankton lights up and you can swim in it at night. The rooms are exactly what you can expect from an eco-hotel, Spartan like but clean and with comfortable beds. You have private toilet and shower (No warm water but seriously the days are so hot that you don't need it). Energy runs from 5pm to 9am to preserve the environment and reduce pollution. If you are looking for a 5stars hotel experience or a holidays village then this hotel is not for you, but if you are easy going and you like to experience a bit of immersion in nature and in typical days on the island then you can totally love this hotel. The price is half what you'll pay in other hotels, which is a plus for who likes to spend money... I loved every second of our staying in this hotel.

ECO HOTEL CASA BLANCA – WHO WE ARE
According to The World Tourism Organization, ecotourism is more than respect for the environment. When we talk about Ecotourism, we are referring to a new way of practicing tourism in which important matters such as nature, culture, rest, tolerance and biodiversity are intermingled, always trying to protect ecosystems. Eco Hotel Casa Blanca meets all these requirements, as we direct our efforts to protect the natural reserve of the Rosario Islands. We are 100% ecologically adapted to the environment without affecting the environment. In addition, we contribute to the progress of Isla Grande and its community. Eco Hotel Casa Blanca has adequate facilities to allow a perfect union between human beings and nature in permanent contact with the Caribbean Sea, and away from the saturation of noise and congestion in cities. We have eco-environmental practices for the management of rainwater and water in general, taking into account that a visitor consumes approximately 150 liters of water, 50% of this water we try to cover it through the rainfall offered by the Island through filtering of water before entering the storage tank in aspects such as cleaning, baths, laundry and irrigation for plants that is even better than drinking water. Drinking water comes directly from Cartagena with the highest quality standards.
Preparing for the future, at Eco Hotel Casa Blanca we focus on the intelligent consumption of resources, such as water, electricity and other materials.
