We're on our honeymoon and stayed 3 nights at this perfect little hotel. There are only 6 beautiful rooms and it felt like we were the only ones here! It is stylish and everyone working here is sweet and helpful. Location - perfect. Cute little street with a coffee shop across the street, a pizza shop where the locals hang... More

Agua Hotel was perfect for us stay in August 2013. We were two women traveling to Cartagena for pleasure, speaking limited Spanish. Agua is beautiful from the front door. The decor is resort chic, and so comfortable. We felt "at home" in all the common areas, as well as in our room. We had a smaller room, but it was... More

I am an extreme world traveler and my standards are high. Traveling to Cartagena on a recent business trip, my colleague from Bogota recommended the Agua Hotel for ambiance and location. As has already been stated, the location is excellent, walking distance to all the sites in the old city and every top shelf restaurant you would want to dine... More

We have just stayed three days in this beautiful small boutique hotel. You come in from the bustling street to this oasis of calm - it has been beautifully decorated keeping the stone walls & columns but with excellent use of mirrors, plants & water to make it seem much larger than it is. There are only 5/6 rooms but... More

What a great sigh of relief I had when I first entered the door. The owners have exquisite taste. Amazing attention to detail and every corner is picture perfect. Sometimes hotels can be gorgeous to look at but not entirely functional but here it is both. I don't know how they did it but everything is pristine and clean which... More

Thsi is a little boutique hotel in the heart of the old city of Cartagena. I was told this was in fact the first boutique hotel in Cartagena about ten year ago. The standards are really high, what you would expect in an outstanding hotel. It has only like 6 rooms and this makes it really special. The staff were... More

We stayed at Agua Hotel for three nights in November. The Hotel is gorgeous and all the staff are delightful and eager to please. The rooms well appointed but no mini bar, the beds are comfortable and the air-conditioning very efficient (and it needs to be in Cartagena). We stayed in room 4 which was small and the en suite...

The Hotel Boutique Agua is like a pair of comfy, well-word Lobbs: bespoke, personalised, magical, and yet, oddly, familiar. My visit resembled that of staying with close friends with excellent taste. All politesse observed, from accommodating - superlatively eager-to-please - staff, and personalised touches like fruit & welcome notes from Sergio Castano, one of the owners. Nobody hovers. Everything magically... More

My husband and I stayed at the Agua in October for our honeymoon! What a beautiful place to stay at! The staff was amazing and we truly were treated like royalty, we even got a special hand-written "thank you for staying with us" note from the owner himself whom we also got to meet in person. The rooms are beautifully... More
