Crowded, noisy, no private beach. The beach acoss the street is not atractive and the peddlers and feet masseurs can became annoying. The food is good. the bar pianist is excellent.The shows are nothing special. To have a reservation for an a special reataurant you have to queue very early in the morning and even so sometimes there is no... More

Food was very second rate, service almost nonexistent, and drinks were on the skimpy side. Staff very disorganized on check in, taking a long time to get to our room. Pool was freezing! Any additional service incurred a charge, including the room safe. Wifi was accessible only in the lobby, and only then at cost (apart from the one hour... More

Avoid this place at all costs. Also avoid their booking agent - FM Travel. They will both rip you off. We stayed at this 'resort' for a few nights in Feb 2013 with a group of friends. My comments are: 1. Hotel transfer wasn't big enough to fit everyone in 2. Check in took forever and was very unorganized. 3.... More

Despite having to pay upfront and in full, this hotel is so bad that it begs belief. The terrible service began at the airport when they only had half of our group booked in for a transfer. We all had diff rooms (not the ones we booked) and ours stank of damp. When we got to our transfer to the... More

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.

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
