Another long over due review. We stayed here 3 nights back in January. As soon as you enter through the un-assuing front door, you're transported into a very special place. The entire hotel is just so well done, and beautiful. Exactly what you want when you're on holiday. The outdoor courtyard is beautiful, the rooms are great and the pool... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights here mid-week in early March. It blew us away! We had the place to ourselves and felt spoilt by the staff. The pool gets great direct sun until around 3:30pm, allowing for great, lazy morning tanning (always accompanied by ice cold fresh fruit)! Breakfast, lunch and dinner at the unique restaurant are superb... More

Stayed here on my second visit to Cartagena and I won't stay anywhere else for my future trips. Gorgeous hotel, delicious food and very attentive/helpful staff. The hotel is small and intimate and feels special. Perfect location right off of Plaza Santo Domingo. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed at El Marques for four nights and loved every minute. The hotel staff was helpful, the restaurant - Bohemia - served a tasty breakfast each morning and the rooms were plenty big enough and had good AC. The pool area is a tranquil, quiet spot to relax and we both had massages in the Petite Spa. Overall the... More

As I left here, the staff were just setting up for a wedding, & it is the perfect place to hold one. Small enough to feel like a home, beautiful enough for stunning photos & with the most helpful staff you could meet. Plus a back history of 1960s famous hedonists that stayed there. What a way to finish a... More

I booked El Marques because from the photos it looked like just the type of boutique hotel that I typically enjoy. I've stayed in a similar boutique hotel in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and wanted a similar experience for my friend and I. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by the staff with a refreshing mint lemonade.... More

My partner & I really enjoyed El Marques. We loved the old style house furnished with modern lounge like furniture, the beautiful tropical garden & lounge music. The atmosphere was perfect for such a relaxed city like Cartagena. We also enjoyed lounging around the pool after a hot days exploration around the city. The pool side bed is a very... More
