After staying for 3 days in the old city (glorious!) we came here for 2 days to really chill. What a great decision! The food was excellent. The ambiance of the whole place is like a spa. So relaxing. Speaking of the spa - I did a few treatments, and they were great. The beach was wide and empty. The... More

This is a belated but sincere posting for this wonderful hotel, which was a welcome retreat after a few nights in the Old Town, and combines the beach with proximity to the city, yet without the congestion. The rooms were wonderful; the food very good; and the service, excellent. I was impressed by how many Columbians came to the hotel... More

Having been told to stay in the Old Town in Cartagena, I was worried that this hotel would be too far away. Instead, we arrived to find a beautiful, relaxing and ambient hotel overlooking the beach. There was also a free bus that took you into the Old Town which is 20 mins away, which is also an excellent and... More

We have been in Cartagena and wanted to arrange massages at the Karmairi. Despite calling them and having our hotel in Cartagena call them, we have been unable to get through.

If you are looking to decompress and relax, this place hits the spot. The welcome drink, to the bar, to the restaurant meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), to the service, it was all just perfect. No worries at all. We had a group of 5 couples. Massages were amazing, pool and beach setup were great, and the mojitios and rum... More

We were staying at the Sofitel Santa Clara with construction works and escaped here for a quiet day out. It was magical and very relaxing. Lunch was delicious ... Don't miss the ceviche! We spent the day at the beach and then went up to the hotel for lunch. The other guests all seemed happy and very chiled.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Karmairi hotel in November 2012. We loved the hotel's service, the beach front property and the amazing pools/lounge.
