One would think that a resort in the heart of Cartagena would be full of ambiance. This is why we booked this trip. The hotel is divided in two sections. The new buildings and the old hotel. After seeing the old rooms, we asked to be moved to a new room. We had to pay extra but it was worth... More

Of course the best rooms are water view rooms. The in was as usual crazy. Groups are in total chaaos. Colombia needs to speed up this process for tour groups. It is nuts. The hotel has a lovely location and grounds. The rooms are nice. Ours however had the view of a tree and huge lights shined into the window.... More

I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Cartagena! We loved everything about the hotel during our Jan 2015 stay. There's a great big pool in the middle of the courtyard which is the center of the action - excellent restaurant on one side, jungle path through expertly maintained gardens around the other three with large trees, bird (toucans!) and...

My family of 4 (2 children age 7 and 14) spent New Years Eve at the Party at the Hotel Caribe. The grounds are beautiful and the party was great, especially if you are traveling with children and you don't want the crowds of the walled city. The tables were set around the pool. The food was good and the... More

Nice setting, a lot of open spaces with trees and flowers. The location in Boca Grande is great. We had the breakfast buffet and it was good, rooms are spacious and clean.

If you cannot stay inside the Old cartagena, this is so far the best choise. great hotel, very professional staff, you can cross the road and be at the beach, with restaurant right there, great pool, rooms clean and very well equipped, good service, shopping walking distance, and few minutes drive to the Old City. Great!

I am not sure who writes these reviews. If you are seeking to stay at a luxury hotel this is not it.

We booked our trip a bit late for the holiday week but were satisfied when we found Hotel Caribe. The location in Boca Grande is great if you are not able to stay inside the walled city.
