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

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...

COMMON SPACE: We had extended family staying in different rooms but able to relax together in the common area around the pool. It was spacious and so relaxing - an area... More

My family rented the entire house during the long weekend of my wedding in early March 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The house is very well located inside the historic city, just opposite the park from the Sofitel Legend Santa Clara Hotel. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants outside, including Santisimo, Coro Bar, and La Cevicheria and Plaza... More

We stayed in this house for 6 days while attending my daughter's wedding March 2014. There were 10 of us and we couldn't have been happier. Its hard to tell from the pictures but the pool is on the main level along with the kitchen, eating area, 3 sitting areas, and 2 bedrooms. The 3 remaining bedrooms are on the... More

Well-located charming house with cozy patio and enjoyable pool. Service was nice but provided by housekeepers, well intended but not professionally trained. Room was good in size, although furniture was old and in need if repairs, safety box was not working and there was no hot water running during the whole weekend (we were told that the heater broke but...

My girlfriend and I spent 5 days at Candil de los Santos in September 2013.
