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

The service was very good, the staff was on point. My wife and I stayed there for a romantic weekend gateway and enjoyed what the hotel had to offer. the only disappointing area was the room. They really needed to be updated, the bathroom was horrible with a shower curtain that was torn and cut, the tub was backed up... More

Please do not be fooled by the 5-stars that this hotel gives itself. It is nothing close. This is perhaps a 3.5 star hotel. If you are really looking for 5 star then perhaps consider - Sofitel Santa Clara / Ananda Hotel Boutique / Hotel Casa San Augustin / etc. Those are 5-Star hotels. OK, so there is nothing wrong...
