A charming hotel with character and quirks. The room was reasonably sized and comfortable, but the toilet was tucked tightly in the corner between the shower and sink, under a counter so the button on top of the tank for flushing was quite difficult to reach. My partner could not fit on the toilet at all because there was hardly any space between the front of the toilet and shower enclosure. The staff are generally nice with routine requests like making change or calling a taxi. They don’t really speak English so it’s hard to tell if they are being rude or do not understand what is being requested. There is no perceptible attempt to comprehend or solve problems. On date of checkout, we had a morning flight so turned in our room key prior to grabbing the free breakfast that was part of our reservation. Because we had checked out, the wait staff said we were not registered guests and charged for breakfast. The person demanding payment could not speak English so we just ended up paying for it to avoid being late for our flight. It was nice to see the various macaws, toucan and deer around the property but it’s hard to imagine that this very family friendly hotel is a good environment for them. Animal interactions are unsupervised and do not appear to be welcome. The atm machine on site is pretty expensive to use. Paid $167 for $147 at the official exchange rate, and the maximum withdrawal was 600,000 COP in jan 2022. Our tour guide mentioned that BBVA in the city center does not charge taxes and offers better exchange terms than Bancolombia.

We appreciate you leaving us such extensive feedback, we will take steps to correct what was not in line with your expectations. As for the wildlife that we have in our gardens, this hotel has been its habitat for years and we take care of it strictly according to government regulations for it.

The worst hotel you could ever imagine of. By far not a 5 stars. The staff doesn't speak a world of English, not even at the reception. The quality of the food is very poor and they made a lot of mistakes in every order. There is no wine and the cocktails are miserable. They have birds (tucanos and Araras) and cut off their wings so they can't fly anymore. The rooms are dirty and very old stylish. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone.

We are sorry that you did not have a pleasant experience, we are not the worst hotel, we have many positives, very beautiful areas, large gardens and an excellent staff. You probably have not noticed the good and pleasant things that we offer to hundreds of foreign passengers who leave such positive comments. The wildlife we have is regulated by government regulations and we have cared for it for years under the restrictions and rules that govern us. This is their habitat, the ones we have here are because they are rescued from animal trafficking and we give them the good treatment and care they deserve.

The check in experience was unpleasant. The clerk was not attentive and was speaking to someone else. However, the other clerks made up for her as they were very helpful with every request we had. The rooms were a little outdated, however they were clean. And we had an issue with the WiFi. When the previous occupants don’t log out, it shows as you using an additional device which prevented us from accessing WiFi on our other devices. This was an issue for about 3 days.

This is my absolutely most favorite place to stay in Cartagena. It is a beautiful, old, colonial style hotel right across the street from the beach. The service is outstanding and the pool is wonderful
