The location is good, and the rooms are large (which is good in my opinion), the desk service is not so good, and the breakfast buffet is not bad. It has two pools and are in the upper floors so you get a nice view of the beach. Not bad, but could be better.

From the front desk attention and check in process everything is lame. We got there late at night after a delayed flight and the clerk was so slow the check in process took forever, and we had to conform with just one key for two people. The rooms are big but uncomfortable without any decoration and the furniture is terrible.... More

I planned to stay at an average price hotel to get buffet breakfast and more comfort than the well known apartments for rent. Paying more than double just to get breakfast is not worth it. Too dull place.

Spent 4 nights earlier this month. Because of a mix up I was put in a room whose quality instantly depressed me. It seemed like a converted apartment in very basic condition. However, on moving to a different room the following day, property felt much better. Free wifi temperamental. Breakfast is average...no issues. Staff generally helpful though their English is...

So here's the short review - quite frankly this property does not even merit a long review - it basically is an apartment building whose occupancy probably went south and some investor picked up, branded it as a hotel, and staffed it with the most dispassionate folks found around. I traveled here with my mother on December 2013 and it... More

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
