Great hotel! Clean and good food! Stay away from the beach pirates offering dinner! They want your money and not long term business! Only eat food and drink at the hotel! Stay clear of local restaurants with no menu!

Located remotely from the city centre in the beach hotel area. Spacious, well equipped and very clean rooms. I have stayed in Sonesta for a couple of times and always was fully satisfied with rooms (except road faced rooms which are very noisy), service quality and restaurant. Staff not really good in English, but they are very helpful and polite.

We had a huge room with two queen beds, large bathroom with walk-in glass shower. The room had floor to ceiling windows that stretched across the entire room. The balcony wrapped around the space. We were in room 516. The hotel has three swimming pools. One overlooks the restaurant and hotel lobby and one is closer to the beach with a small kiddie wading pool. The one by the beach is an infinity pool but for some reason it wasn't flowing during our stay. The pools were clean but the pool deck could have used a major scrub down. Otherwise, it was great. Lots of shade if you wanted shade and plenty of loungers for everyone. We had breakfast included with our room. The buffet offered a variety of local dishes as well as plenty of hot and cold choices in addition to a variety of fruits. The service was impeccable at the hotel. The staff were attentive and smiles all around. There is an onsite 24 hour convenience store and a full grocery store which was open from 7 to late is located adjacent to the hotel. The Sunset Beach hotel offers a great lunch - located on the beach directly behind the Sonesta. We had the chicken breast with fries and salad. It was delicious and well prepared. The only real downside to this hotel was the location. No I'm not saying its because it was in La Boquilla - I read a number of comments from others saying that the area is run down etc. I think the downside is because there wasn't much else around during the day. We wanted to grab lunch away from the hotel and the choices were limited. The area was safe and the beach was well populated. Would I go back? Probably not, but only because I preferred the amenities available in Bocagrande. If the Sonesta was in a different location, I would go back for sure. We went into town every late afternoon for dinner and drinks. The taxi cost $15,000 pesos each way.

We stayed here for 1 of our nights in Cartagena. We really liked the hotel, very large rooms, it was clean and quiet. It had a large pool with lots of seating areas. Cabanas available to anyone beach was about a 5 minute walk. It is very far off the main attraction path its about 15-20 pesos to get to any restaurant. The beach gate is closed and locked at night because you are off the main part so going out at night could be a bit dangerous so we didn't. The hotel was great, staff were very friendly checking in and out was quick and efficient. They stored our bags for us as we booked our mini excursion through them to go to the islands which was awesome. The restaurant was good, food was really good and breakfast had a huge variety which was included. I went and had a massage done by Cindy, well worth the money!!! The spa though is not taken care of locks/doors broken no toilet paper in any bathroom. We went to the beach for the day, it is really windy lots of wind surfers which was great to watch but also ALOT of people selling stuff. The beach covers/chairs are sold by locals they tried to sell them to us for 50 pesos. It is really windy so its nice to have them but we just got 2 lounge chairs instead for 10 pesos after A LOT of arguing. All in all great place just not in the heart of Cartagena.
