I am regular to Cartagena and I've stayed in several hotels but this one has some magic that the others don't have. The outside is OK but from the moment you walk in the door you can almost immediately feel this hotel is not like the others. The smell, the look, the service, etc. This hotel is located on a...

The pool on the roof is delightful. The rooms are very nice. The staff is fantastic. Especially our concierge, Diana. She went above and beyond to help us have a wonderful time in Cartagena. Diana is truly exceptional!

We stayed at the Allure Chocolat in late July 2015 for five nights. The rooms are great; nicely appointed, clean, spacious and comfortable. The hotel amenities are excellent - great rooftop bar and pool, good food and we treated ourselves to a couples massage which was a very nice way to start our visit. Overall excellent value for money as... More

The Allure Chocolat was one of the nicest boutique hotels I have ever stayed in!! From the minute we walked in, we were catered to. We chose the aroma we wanted our room to be refreshed with, Sheila gave us GREAT ideas and suggestions as far as restaurants, sight-seeing must-sees and local nightlife. Carlos from the restaurant upstairs greeted us... More

Couldn't fault this hotel. The best I've stayed in Central Cartagena. Great pool, great service. Best breakfast ever served outside on the terrace. They don't mind if you are a bit late. 5 minute walk to Puerto Reloj.

My wife and teenage children stayed at Allure Chocolat for three nights and loved nearly every minute of it. They arranged for a Saturday morning (9am) pickup from the airport which worked very well. We were somewhat disappointed that we did not receive our rooms immediately, but this was made up for later. We had reserved one Junior suite for... More

I recently spent 24 nights in this hotel. The reception staff are excellent and professional, helping with any request made of them. The standard rooms are a little small if travelling with lots of luggage, but this wouldn't be a problem for those staying for a week/few days. That said clever details are used to give the sense of more... More
