Stayed for three nights for a work conference. Nicely appointed but dark rooms with the only natural light coming from the doors. Pool area is kind of run down. Breakfast was substandard for a boutique hotel. Staff was of the extremes, completely unhelpful and unfriendly or overly-friendly trying to be your best friend and help you find the 'chicas'.

The hotel is well located. Service is very welcoming and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious and nicely decorated Asian style, gorgeous colours. The swimming pool area in the top floor is quite small. It was not a problem for us as there were only 2 rooms occupied at the time but with more guests it can get crowded easily.... More

I highly recommend this place. The pictures don't do justice, if you love the old spanish architecture as much as I do place consider this place. The location is excellent and very safe. The decor is very relaxing and the service beyond excellent.. I stay there for Valentine's Day 2014 and the experience was amazing.. Yes, the rooftop pool is... More

When we went to Cartagena, we did not want to stay in one of the classics like Santa Clara (Sofitel). This hotel is small, but just amazing! Great design, focus on detail, nice room, and the amazing roof top terrace. The staff were very kind and warm. They helped us also to organize a private boat to go to Playa... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Aguamarina. The old house is lovely, the location is great, and the staff is friendly and nice (but speak very little English). We might add that the aquamarine theme is attractive, but lots of kitchy stuff detracts!, And there are other negative aspects, as well. The so-called swimming pool is a tiny rooftop jacuzzi,...

We stayed in Hotel Aguamarina for 3 nights in March 2012. Hotel's location is great, in the nicest part of Cartagena and therefore one can visit all touristic attractions on foot. Hotel's decor is lovely, we really liked top roof swimming pool and launge area. The staff are very helpful and eager to please. The reason why we I gave... More

First impressions are positive...striking property, friendly staff, elaborate greeting as you arrive, but then.... *Stairs, lots of them! *No use of air conditioning in the common areas. *Lots of the amenities in disrepair or outright broken: no shade at the pool because the umbrellas are broken, but then again, so are the chairs and lounges. *Bedside reading lights are nothing...

yes- it`s stylish n boutiquey in a very desirable area of the old city of CARTEGENA. but to pay $337 a nite is total foolishness& downright ignorance, when you can stay across the street in award winning historic 17th century former private villas and 100 times more spacious & majestic with dramatic colonnaded courtytards with luscious swimming pools and rooftop...

I stayed a week in Cartagena and had booked this hotel just for few days as the Sofitel Santa Marta was fully occupied. I returned after one night in the Sofitel (awful place). This hotel has 5 rooms, with lovely people taking care of you. The location is perfect for Cartagena restaurants and bars. The rooms are very stylish, the... More
