Our family of four stayed two nights at the Caribe during a two week Colombia vacation. We loved virtually everything about this property. The room was clean and comfortable, however, slightly on the small side for four people. The public areas were outstanding. The pool area was truly fantastic, similar to the pool areas of the large 4-5 star hotels... More

This very old hotel is struggling a bit with ongoing maintenance. However, if you don't look too closely, it is more than fine. The beds are comfortable, the staff is friendly, the food in the restaurant is good and the rooms, while small by US standards, are ok. Pool area is inviting is the courtyard.

This was our second hotel in Cartagena after returning to a jaunt to Tayrona and my expectations may have been somewhat tainted by our phenomenal experience at our prior hotel in the Old City (see my review of the San Pedro Hotel and Spa). That said, this hotel delivers exactly what it promises: comfortable, clean rooms and a nice pool... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The grounds are gorgeous, with many courtyards and lots of plants. Great pool, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, good location and generally great all around. No matter which building you are in (there are three), make sure your room is not next to the elevators, as there is no sound proofing (which hopefully... More

We stayed at Hotel Caribe for five days at end of February. Although we had read some critical reviews, we felt confident with choice. We were not disappointed. The hotel is extremely attractive with a delightful mix of modern comforts and historic ambience. Would definitely recommend a room in the "classic" (original) building which has recently been renovated. In fact,... More

This place is indeed a throwback to a bygone era. The Caribe was welcoming guests before the first high rise appeared on the Bocagrande skyline, a time of diplomats in Panama hats, corrupt politicians with big cigars, eccentric explorers and affluent businessmen. Its slightly-faded grandeur remains, but today’s guests are more likely to be Colombian families, Latino hipsters, cruise passengers... More
