          Hello, My husband and I are planning on a trip to Cartagena next month to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I was looking into The Occidental, but a lot of the answers are by some other name .... Is this the same hotel, with a different name? My understanding is that this is an all-inclusive resort... Is there a "Premium Club"? How would I assure me an ocean view room ? Is transfer to and from the airport available? Is there an adult only section? I would appreciate a response, Thank you JRL
