We stayed for five nights in the 2 bedroom suite. This was perfect for our family of five. We travel quite a bit, and we have certain standards that must be met. San Diego 974 definitely met and exceeded our expectations. Everything was very clean, modern and tastefully decorated.
There is a large, fully stocked kitchen, modern bathrooms, 3 TV's . Most importantly though - SOFT BEDS! The air conditioning worked very well, which is a must for Cartagena. There was a washer and dryer just down the hall that was available to us. Our condo had a large wrap around patio with a couple of seating areas, some were in the shade.
We usually had the roof top pool to ourselves. It was very relaxing. However, there was not any drink service available. That was fine with us because we had brought our own soft-sided fold up cooler, we filled it with our own drinks and snacks. There are two EXITOS within walking distance of the condo. EXITO is the Colombian version of Walmart.
The location is excellent, in the heart of the historic area. There are several restaurants nearby, all within walking distance. I must advise you that the restaurants are a bit more expensive than you would expect. We went because of the historical significance of Cartagena, not for the beaches. Do not go for the beaches or you will be very disappointed. We hired a tour guide for a day, he spoke English and had a car that he drove us around in when necessary. I would highly recommend him. I believe his name was Duran Duran, we made arrangements through Janier at San Diego 974 suites. Janier was very helpful throughout our stay.
We also rented a boat for a day, we were able to enjoy private beaches that way.
I highly recommend staying here!
