Denver, Colorado6 contributions
Very clean and a lovely beach is nearby. The staff was very friendly, although they do not speak much english (I was happy to be with my friend who's nearly fluent, otherwise I would have been lost). We did all-inclusive at "The Level," but The Level was closed the week we were there...however, we still got charged for the upgrade. All-inclusive was nice, as drinks are free flowing and the buffet had wonderful, authentic options that rotated every meal. The main pool area is not on the beach but it is a nice size with a great bar. The spa was wonderful and very clean. Note that the hotel itself is near the beach but not ON the beach. The Level pool area looks onto the water but the view of the beach is obstructed by cabanas on the beach front run by one of the beach restaurants. The beach bar at the hotel is really nice though with plenty of shaded areas and chairs. It's about a 15 minute ride from the airport and 20 minutes from old town Cartagena. Ubers were easy to get at all times of day and the hotel staff was always available to help call a taxi if needed. It does service a slightly older crowd so the activities cater more to that. But I honestly didn't mind being away from the raging party that happens all over Cartagena. If I found myself in Cartagena again, I would consider returning to Melia.

Hotel's Favorite
Hotel Staff: This is my favorite part of getting to stay at Melia Cartagena Karmairi. The genuine friendliness and accommodation is world class! I’ve stayed at many hotel brands across the world, and Melia does this better than any competition. Hotel Room: This was very clean and comfortable! I thoroughly enjoyed the patio outside and could work while enjoying the beautiful weather. On-Site Dining: The food is excellent! I was intimidated at first by being unfamiliar, but the staff was very helpful in accommodating to help understand what food they serve and what it contains. My favorite food probably the Pescado de Filet and Quippa! Location: Perfect! It is only a three minute walk to the beach from the hotel and there is accommodations on the beach. You are a short drive from the city, but this is better because it is not overcrowded. Cleanliness: Once again, this is a plus for visiting because of not only general cleaning practices but also enhanced COVID precautions. I felt very safe and secure, that extra measures were taken to ensure safety of both guests & staff.

Excelent guest services. The installations are beautiful. The breakfast was awesome. Rooms and beds are really comfortable. Air conditioning was cold and relaxing after a warm day. Room service was on time and they keep the rooms clean and neat.

The staff were incredible — so kind and caring — and anything we needed they would attend to. My husband had to go to the hospital (down the road is one of the best tim the country) and even though I was trying to communicate in a foreign language, they were so helpful in translating to help organize a doctor’s visit to his room, taxis to the hospital, speak to hospital staff on my behalf, and helped me take dinner to him while he was sick. When I was struggling, they offered to help in whatever way they could. Besides the emergency, everything from check in, poolside service, events by the pool (dancing and games!), cleaning, room service, and dining were handled with the greatest professionalism and grace. Also, they’re food is great! I would highly recommend anyone to stay here if they have the opportunity - it’s a great value for the stay, and they will show up when you need them to in an emergency.

What can I say...the whole experience was "meh". I've stayed on many Meliá properties around the world and I can say that this hotel can be a decent 3-star one but that's it. It definitely does not reach the standard of other all-inclusive Meliá hotels. This hotel is not operated directly by Meliá but by Hoteles Estelar. Food tastes much better than it looks, alcohol choices are cheap, very limited dining options (and you can't get a snack by the pool). But what this hotel is lacking the most is basic maintenance of its building. A lot of dirty walls, cracked paint, standing puddles of water (the door on the women's bathroom door by the pool did not close), doors that have no signage, only one small elevator working, iron and blow dryer in the room were useless...the count seems endless. You only get 1 hour of nightly entertainment which is absolutely bonkers for a hotel that does not have anything nearby. Anything good? Yes. Even with all this shortcomings, hotel staff was always very kind and had a smile.
