Our stay here was the best of our trip. The facilities were just fantastic. We had been to the Santa Clara to see what that was like but for value for money there is no comparison. All the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The Pool bar is just such a wonderful place to escape the world,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here the first week in October and loved it. The Staff were so friendly and accommodating. The Hotel itself is clean and modern and the lobby smells like chocolate when u walk in. The breakfast was delicious and the best part its included with the hotel fee. Its a 5 minute walk to the old... More

We went to Cartagena for a short trip and we wanted to be close to the old city. This hotel is excellent in terms of location. It is minutes away from the entrance of the old city. It is brand new. The staff is very good and friendly. There is a little pool with a fantastic sea view which we... More

My mom and I just returned from a 10-day trip across Colombia, visiting Bogota, Leticia and Cartagena. We loved this hotel (mind you, I am a picky traveler). Everything was clean and organized and the staff was just wonderful! Very friendly and more than willing to help a mom and daugther duo from Minnesota who didn't speak Spanish :-) The... More

It was our first time visiting South America and we booked a package through jetblue airways flight and hotel. We were originally going to stay at the Sofitel but chose the Allure Chocolat due to the nice pictures on their website... More

Gorgeous, serene boutique hotel in the heart of the action. As soon as you arrive, you are greeted with the scent of chocolate in the air, a cleansing hand towel and glass of fruit-infused water. The staff is welcoming and can understand English and are happy to help with any and all requests. The rooms are on the smaller side,... More

The scent of chocolate is prevalent throughout this small enchanting boutique hotel. The "deluxe" room was a bit small, but the hotel is charming and the staff excellent and attentive. The breakfast served on the 4th floor is fine with many freshly squeezed juices on offer. The 4th floor pool is adequate and a nice spot to hang out at... More

While the hotel is not in the historic city center, the location turned out to be great. Getsemani is an edgier neighborhood with many new restaurants and bars. And the walk to the old town is just 5-10 minutes, so very manageable. The hotel itself seemed to be newly renovated and the room was very comfortable. We were disappointed that... More
