I had a great business/ family trip in Cartagena. It’s not my first time at the hotel, I’ve lost count of how many times I have been there. The pool, gardens, restaurants, and recreation area are unique. Specially the Staff I would like to Thank Mrs. Milena on her excellent customer service attributes as well as unique hospitality. The best waitress at the pool area will be Mrs. Milena she’s there from 7am to 3 pm. The food is also great.

This is a unique opportunity to experience a classic colonial 5 star hotel. It is a one-of-a kind resort that enfolds you in comprehensive Cartagena hospitality. The location at the end of the peninsula, adjacent to the beach, the tropical Caribbean grounds with parrots, toucans , peacocks and little tiny deer were charming and delightful. The staff was truly beyond 5-star and the food was superb! If you want a memorable experience - this is the place for you!

We enjoyed the stay very much. The pool area was very nice and mostly clean. The service was excellent, the stuff very friendly. We loved the room and the fruit as welcome. The breakfast was delicious. It would be good to control more, that the adult area is really only for adults.

Hotel was great. The food service was excellent. I have a child with many food allergies, they did everything to accommodate her for breakfast. They regularly came to check on her and us. Brought her alternatives and ensured that she was safe. The hotel is also great, they work hard to ensure that the guests are comfortable and happy. Pool is great. The grounds are beautiful too. My kids enjoyed seeing all the animals and birds around the grounds of the hotel. I would recommend. The hostess Ines was excellent and truly looked after my daughter. Thank you for a great stay!

very good experience at the beach bar of the hotel ....thanks to the staff all the waiters and bar tender security were amazing, very polite and they made sure we feel safe and welcome. Big Big thank to jhon ... Next time i come to CTG i wil make sure to stay at this hotel. One thing i want to notice, one of the cashier who tried to remembered me to put the tips on my paiement . i had to tell him that im well educated that i already gave tips to everyone. I didn't see or enconter this person all day so he doesn't have to push me like and be rude. i have been working for an airline and traveling for 20 years ....i love radisson standing and that is not a way to talk to clients. Except this rude person that is an exception all the rest was great that why i recommend and i will come back myself. Good prices great service safety,, you can go for a swim and leave your clothes behimd with no fear....that felling made our vacations and our experience even more unforgettable.

The Caribe, first hotel built on Bocagrande, is a grand lady who is now a little tired. The lobby is elegant. At check-in, we were happy to receive a voucher for a free drink at the Lobby Bar. We walked around looking for it—going to the sushi restaurant, just off the lobby. It was tiny and there wasn't a bar. So we looked further, and went through a glass door to discover that it was a staff lounge. In point of fact, there is no lobby bar! We finally got the drink at the lovely poolside restaurant. Please print new more accurate vouchers. Our room was nicely decorated with a big window, but the view was terrible. We overlooked an abandoned tennis court now used as a place for workers' tools, beside it a large, ugly ramshackle building, and a corner of a small lake. Thankfully we only used the room for sleeping. Since almost none of the staff spoke English and w'ed already had difficulty communicating, we knew it wouldn't be worth the hassle to try to get a room change. That aside, we were delighted to see the wandering deer and peacocks, and curious bright toucans. The adult pool was long and deep, surrounded by beautiful palms and huge mangroves. The dining room was lovely, but the free breakfast was a bit disappointing with few Northern options like bacon or cooked ham, and not enough tables. But the poolside restaurant was excellent. One night we ordered delicious grilled vegetables and a pizza, listening to an extraordinary skilled keyboardist who played quiet jazz standards, with a good singer. Very enjoyable! We loved the private beach and its covered restaurant where we could safely leave our things to swim in the warm, wavy sea. Overall, we had a wonderful time.
