We arrived at the hotel and were inmediately greeted by one of the guest service agents. Hotel is only a 15 minute ride from the airport and shuttle service was included with our reservation. Upon arrival, the guest service agent took us into a meeting room and provided us with an overview of the hotel facilities and the area. She... More

There are no English speaking staff at all, so brush up on your Spanish. Food is good, all ala carte. The beach charges for lounge chairs. No mini fridge or coffee machines in rooms...no door peep hole either. Other than that, Colombian people are awesome and staff were fantastic.

This was my first visit to Cartagena and I will definitely return. If you can get it for less than $800.00 you are getting a very good deal. I paid $740.00 The hotel is in the city and just across the street from the beach. A one minute walk from the lobby and you will be on the beach. If... More

Cartagena is a beautiful city with beautiful friendly people so it's unfortunate that this hotel could not live up to the beauty of Cartagena. From the moment we stepped foot in this hotel we knew it was not going to be a pleasant stay. The lobby staff was friendly but very unorganized. In the middle of trying to check in,... More

We were welcomed at the hotel by hotel staff and taken directly into a restaurant where we were served lunch. While we were having lunch, the hotel... More

All inclusive experience. Rooms: Clean and comfortable room. No complains. Try to book an upper level room with great view. 4/5 Food: Great food, the best restaurant is the one on the roof (sea food). And you have the option of dinner on the antique city which is beautiful. 4/5 People: Very nice and make your life easy all the... More

Very good all around service, food quality varied but was never poor, room was spacious ,clean, good AC, elevators worked well and I should note that we observed some staff members who went above and beyond to accomodate several guests "special circumstances." Nice job guys!! Beach access was great but it's hard to get that exclusive resort beach experience anywhere... More

Why this hotel has 29 excellent reviews at the time of writing is beyond my comprehension. When we arrived we were dealt with politely and efficiently and shown to our room, which on first glance seemed not luxurious but respectable. A 3 star room basically. However, when I turned on the bedside lamp it didn't work at first and when... More
