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. Robert and the whole staff provided us with a wonderful experience, perfect recommendations, beautiful breakfasts and surroundings that are peaceful and very special. The hotel/house is perfectly situated just off of San Diego Plaza and offers tranquil, luxury surroundings and a lap pool to relax... More

Stayed here with 10 other friends for a wedding july 2013. Staff was amazing, all the rooms were amazing. I particularly liked all the bathrooms - with huge ceilings and/or views of the courtyard. We had some people over for a pre-wedding pool party, and they were so jealous of our house! The staff went shopping for us and prepared... More

We were a group of 6 people and we ended up booking the entire place. Pool was awesome and we had some great pool parties :) Rooms are fantastic, each with its own full bathroom. There is a... More

I stayed in Candil de los Santos with nine friends for a wedding in March 2013. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The place was exceptionally clean and the staff could not have been more accommodating. We would make special requests for breakfast, meal times and grocery pick-up, and they always accommodated us. I also found the manager, Robert, to... More

Awesome experience is all I really need to say . This place looks exactly like the pictures and the staff is superb. After a good amount of research for a group of my friends, we decided to go with Candil De Los Santos since it was the most space for the most reasonable price. We had a group of 11... More

El Candil de los Santos is a beautiful, spacious colonial home just steps from Plaza San Diego and the Hotel Santa Clara . The house was an oasis of calm and tranquility during a very busy wedding week celebrating the marriage of our daughter in Cartagena. Impeccably maintained, beautifully decorated and so very comfortable this is a perfect place for... More
