My partner and I stayed at the Hotel Caribe during a recent visit to Cartagena. The hotel itself is absolutely stunning and is now heritage listed due to its significance. The swimming pool and surrounding areas are stunning and the hotel rooms are comfortable and accommodating. One of a few issues we did have at the hotel was with the service at the hotels restaurants. We found the staff there not very unattentive, difficult to get service from and then included in the bill at the end of the service was a tip included in the bill. Another issue was with the "private beach". One of the major problems that we feel Cartagena is facing is with its vendadoras and during a visit to the hotels private beach we found ourselves immediately swamped by vendadoras trying to sell us anything from "Rolex" watches, sunglasses, to paintings. The water was very unattractive and after a short stay we decided to return to the hotels swimming pool.
