This review is from our experience as a group of 10, so we had the entire home to ourselves: Everything from the staff to the home itself was wonderful. Roberto was VERY responsive to all of our needs. He was kind enough to procure a boat for a fantastic day-trip to the islands and even set up in-house massages. The... More

I stayed at Candil de los Santos with a group of 10 friends for a week and we truly had the best time imaginable. Roberto, the manager, was beyond helpful in answering all of our questions ahead of time, and helping us make plans once we were there. He arranged transportation to/from the airport for us, arranged a private speedboat... More

I stayed at Candil de los Santos during my time in Cartagena. We rented the entire faculty for my group of 10 friends. Roberto, the manager, was amazing at helping us arrange accommodations. We came in from California and he helped arranged a large Van at the airport for pickup so we felt safe the entire time. He helped plan... More

This villa is beautiful, was satisfied with everything. Perfect for large groups and the staff accommodated to everything we needed. Roberto, our host, made everything easy and was always there a message away, like finding us a yacht so we can party even crazier. P.s the breakfast was the cherry on top.

The house is even better in person than the pictures show. The staff was fantastic and took care of everything we needed. Roberto was easy to deal with throughout the process as his staff was wonderful during our stay. I was a bit apprehensive that there would be a staff on site but they stay out of your way and...

Wonderful place. Perfectly maintained rooms, lovely garden, helpful staff. Located in the heart of the old city. Would recommend very highly. We were a group of friends and couples and everyone was delighted.

My family and and I recently stayed at Candil de Los Santos and it was amazing. The house was everything I thought it would be and more. The pool area is peaceful and beautifully maintained. The rooms with private bathrooms were very clean, comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast every morning was deliciously prepared and much appreciated! We were able to... More

This was one of the best travel experiences ever for our family. The 5 bedroom house was spacious and well appointed. We were able to gather around the pool, go off to a separate living area or a few other seating areas. The main house is ideally situated within the walls of the old city. After exploring during the warmth... More

Candil de Los Santos was the best place we have ever stayed. The host and his staff couldn't have been better. Upon arrival, the owner greeted us and told us everything we need to know about our stay. Between the pool, the space, the service and the location we couldn't have been happier. I was there with the guys for... More
