Beautiful colonial located on large grounds and one steal of a deal! I enjoyed the free breakfast everyday with different fresh squeezed juices each day. The daily breakfast is amazing and comes with a good selection of fruits, pasties, quiches and traditional food. On Saturday morning, there was a full breakfast bar with traditional food and well. The hotel is... More

The hotel is not new, as you may be able to tell. It needs a pick-me-up, but I've been told they are working on fixing it. We were lucky to be in the area that has been remodeled and it was beautiful. The room was big, clean, modern and the bathroom was large. The staff was always very attentive and... More

Great place for a family vacation, especially with younger children. The kids' pool is nice and shallow, as well as completely separated from the main pool so kids have a bit more freedom. The hotel was spotless (new building) and the food was fine...nothing extraordinary but good Colombian fare. If you're looking for pizzas and westernized junk food then this... More

Clean and warm hotel. Nice people, nice food and a beautiful swimming pool. Gratis wifi in rooms with good signal. The beach is near but not so good as expected. No security problems inside the hotel or in the vicinity. The bad thing is the noise of a generator during the night!

Old hotel, need fixing, nice pool and garden, but pricy for the quality of the rooms, and messy neighbourhood, Beach close by is not so clean, and very windy mostly with sand going to your face most of the time.

Lovely Colonial style building located in a quiet and well communicated place, Bocagrande. Very friendly and professional staff. Beautiful gardens inside, with Toucans and deer playing around. Great breakfast. Very large and comfortable room, with a large sized (queen) bed. Free WiFi working very well in the lobby, but not as well in the rooms. They need improving their Access... More

First, good things. It is a lovely, charming colonial style hotel located across the street from the beach where it has designated area. Excellent free breakfast. Clean and large rooms, swimming pool. Close to the old City. The bad things. Despite being advertised as very trendy and becoming popular with North Americans, Cartagena is still not on their radar. The... More

The Caribe has a fantastic pool and wonderful beds and chill out areas to relax. The staff were very helpful, friendly and cheerful. The rooms were large, newly renovated, clean and fresh. The Hotel grounds and gardens are beautiful and relaxing. The Hotel is close to the beach but a 5 min cab ride into the old City.
