The photos of this place, as amazing as they may appear, do not do this hotel justice! From the moment we arrived, this was like something out of the movies. A huge wooden fortress-like door encloses this hotel from the old downtown city (which, by the way, is incredible). You knock on the door and someone peeks out through a smaller window within the door before offering you admittance... so cool! As soon as we walked into the courtyard, we were provided with fabulous blended cocktails (on the house). Our room was beautiful, the swimming area was private and pristine, the courtyard perfectly maintained with lush greenery everywhere. --This downtown is one of our favorite travel experiences, and the Casa Pestagua Hotel, is right up there with it. If I were to return to this town, I would most certainly stay here again, without hesitation.
When visiting Cartegena, don't miss the horse-drawn carriage tour of downtown in the evening. It's a lovely way to see this beautiful town.
