Hotel was amazing, an amazing staff that made sure we had everything we needed at all times. Bartender Jorge was definitely the best at making drinks and giving great your advice. The room was exceptional with an amazing view. A few feet away from an amazing beach and pretty close to all tourist areas.

This place is very nice with great views. The rooms need a little update for the price since they look from a three star hotel. Otherwise the service was good. The beach is very close and also good restaurants. The area is also safe for families.

Some individuals spoke English, and with the rest...well we just got to learn some Spanish. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Proximity to beach, shopping , restaurants was great. Very safe area.

room was clean and the breakfast was good... The pool bar was awesome. The proximity to the beach was good. There were two of us and initially the key for wifi in the room only worked for one of us. We had to go to the lobby and ask to have two devices working simultaneously which they did with no... More

I stayed in the hotel for almost a week as part of a convention. The hotel took good care of us. There is a large meeting room with audiovisual equipment as well as reception possibilities by the pool and in a lobby. The hotel is located near the beach and is a short cab ride to the Walled City. There... More

This hotel is one of the most traditional ones in Cartagena. It's has a very good location in bocagrande that is the hotel area in Cartagena. It's located right in front of the beach with many restaurants and shopping centers around. It has a stair that communicates first and second floor that it's something that personally I find awful because... More

This is an expensive hotel for Cartagena standard rates. We found a nice staff service, excellent breakfast buffet, good enough bar with alive music all days. It is very close to the beach in Boca Grande, less than a block, an atractive beach but with too many street vendors around you all day, trying to sell everything at high prices.... More
