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...

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

Two rooms down and 3 rooms upstairs. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great hot showers. +A/C. Friendly house cat. Cons: -Our hot water was not functioning... More

Our family had the entire hotel for 7 days for my wedding. It was the perfect place for everyone to relax and spend casual time together. It's a beautiful place with comfortable rooms and big, open common areas, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our favorite feature of the house was the big pool in the middle of... More

We stayed here for 7 days. The house was exactly as described. Great Location, large spacious and clean. The pool and outdoor living area was incredible. The staff made us breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. The food was just as good, if not better than the best restaurants in Cartagena. The staff was present when needed and disappeared when we...
