I am positively impressed by this hotel in the attention to detail from concierge to bellmen, courteous check-in to check out. Service and attention was superb during the free breakfast each morning, at the pool for towels, food and drinks. They lent us large towels to go to the beach with no fuzz about it. The elevator would only open... More

Its definitely not 5 starts hotel. It might have been many years ago, but now, compared to other places in Cartagena, like Intercontinental or Hilton, its simply outdated hotel. Lobby and corridors smell mold. Really smell mold, it hits you the second you enter lobby. Rooms are very outdated, its like from last century! The stuff is ok, nothing outstanding... More
