A lot of friends suggested this hotel for my anniversary. I made the reservation by booking.com without any problem. It´s location in Manzanillo is about 20 minutes from the Rafael Nuñez International Airport. The taxi cab charged a $26.000 fare which I consider reasonable. Upon our arrival we found a smiling staff that took our luggage into a nice beach-boutique... More

In some ways this is one of the strangest hotels I have ever stayed in. As a boutique hotel up the coast from the city of Cartegena, it admittedly only has 14 rooms, (though a major extension is planned), but there are times when it is like a ghost town as residents take advantage of the shuttle service into Cartagena...

This was a perfect get-away from our daily life in Cartagena. Located only a few miles away from home, we arrived mid afternoon and were greeted by lovely staff and a tasty welcome cocktail. We spent the afternoon at the pool relaxing and watched a stunning sunset. Dinner and breakfast were absolutely delicious!! What a treat!! We only spent roughly... More

Very romantic hotel where my girlfriend and I spent a night. We ate all of our meals here from lunch through the following breakfast, and the food was delicious. The prices were a little high for the area, but not ridiculous. Service was world class, and we had a great stay.

Amazing and relaxing days at karmairi resort and spa, excellent service at bar and swimming pool as well as in the SPA. Rooms are clean and well furnitured. Unfortunately I cannot say the same of personnel at reception where there is a low level of understanding of customer service and interaction with customers

The services is excellent, staff are very responsive and proactive.
