Top of the class service, extremely friendly staff and a very quiet and beautiful environment. The food is so good people travel all the way there to eat. Commuting to and from the town center is a bit expensive, but you probably won't want to leave the place. Only the water is overpriced

Definitely will return. Excellent small boutique hotel with 14 rooms in a very natural atmosphere. Had a wonderful massage. The staff seem to anticipate your preferences. We had taken a very long walk and arrived back to the hotel really overheated and immediately were met by our waiter frank with large glasses of ice water. The food is delicious and... More

The place is beautiful but when arriving they sent us to a tiny room of a different category than the one reserved (and paid). I'd really warn against reserving a standard room, they are not worth their price. Fortunately we remembered the photos of the room we had reserved and asked for a change. They granted it but there was... More

Very relaxing atmosphere. Excellent pool service, small enough to make you feel you own the place😊. One secret spot in Cartagena North West area. Romantic, sunset is beautiful. Excellent for couples and one nice day if prefer, away from the busy city.

I cant say enough about this property! We did not stay in the hotel however, we simply purchased the premium day passes. I had contacted the hotel about a month prior to our arrival and every question I had was answered in a timely manner by Leonardo. Then from the moment we arrived to the property we were treated like... More

First off, I have to say the staffs at this spa hotel are A+ but there is a serious problem that needs to be fixed with the reservation process. It is a joke to find out anything prior to coming with that Instant message feature on their site. Forget it if you don't speak good Spanish except you happen to... More

A visit to such a lovely place should be split in two: a few days away for the start, and a few other in the hussle-and-bussle of the city! It's a wonderful choice to start your stay in such an elegant and exclusive place like Karmairi! Taxi from the airport costs 40,000 Colombian pesos (don't pay any more cent!) and... More

Just returned from Colombia, and spend 3 first nights in Karmairi. We loved it! Absolutely beautiful place, amazing food, exceptional service. It is a 30min ride from Cartagena center, but it is a perfect place for relaxation! Free shuttle to Centro Historico is great and really, we cannot compliment the food enough! Arepas in the morning, ceviche, pulpo carpaccio, langustines,... More

That's the place to stay at if you are looking for some private relaxing time. The staff is very well trained, food is amazing and if you get to stay at one of the rooms facing the beach you will be able to enjoy an amazing sunset.

This is a very nice spa-boutique hotel. Very close to the beach, although the beach is not awesome. But very far from Cartagena (Google Maps show it at the city). So you'll spend time and money on taxis to/from Cartagena. There is a shuttle service from the hotel, but it has proven to be very unreliable. Staff was very helpful.... More
