This was a really nice hotel just across from the beach in the Boca Grande area of Cartagena, Columbia. Very short taxi rides to old town and other attractions. The breakfast that is served each day is wonderful with a variety of local breads, Juices and fruits with protein and eggs served to order. We would return!

Really run down hotel with a high price tag. You can get a muuuuch better place for the same price close by. Bathroom next to machine room and witout air conditioning-by the time you get out of the shower you are sweating again. The internet didn't work at times and the elevator were not functioning at some point. Didn't even... More

We were roomed in one of the recently converted rooms on the 9th floor, so the it was great as it also had sea view. The toilet was not refurbished, therefore didn't match the room's standard. Also we had buffet breakfast included which was better than expected, with a good variety. On the service side, all was going well until... More

Imagine a 2012 mercedes benz but with a 1999 old interior; in other words..rooms are less than desirable. Our room AC had to be fixed twice. The amount of wear and tear in the bathroom is just breath taking and dangerous if you had kids. Ceiling lights with some rust, I guess the staff believes because the hotel is in... More

My wife and I organized a week long convention for 66 people in this hotel, inclusive of lodging, meals, and the salon, or main meeting room in September 2013. Overall we were pleased with how things went. I wanted to add a special note that the meeting coordinator Esther, and Hotel Manager Mario bent over backwards to help our stay... More

We were able to book this hotel at the last minute and stayed 2 nights. The rooms are large, bed is comfortable, good AC, decent breakfast buffet and located across from the beach in the Bocagrande area. I didn't like that you would hear construction early in the morning, as they are building next door and they had the electric... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and was very pleased with the large room, breakfast, and location. Beds were comfortable and AC worked great. Had a lovely beach view and the pool was a great place to cool off.

Was there a in April 2013. We got a room on the fourth floor that smelled awful. They were renovating the whole floor and started working before 07.00. We got to change room three day later. They hardly understod any English except for the Bell boy. Bad logistics! They had to be three in the reception to be able to... More

Despite the hotel at first glance look very nice, located in fancy Bocagrande and just some steps away from the beach I must say that the staff is unpleasant and even rude. Be careful with the hidden charges specially when ordering something to eat in the room, the room service is three times they say in the brochure, and the... More

Regatta is a time share establishment that rents units when not being used. The website is misleading about this and pictures of the hotel are extremely misleading about the type of hotel it is and quality. It is a total farce - essentially an broken down local yocal dump. I recommend the Hilton in Laguito, just down the road. Youll... More
