For sure not a 5 star hotel. Maybe 3 stars. It needs a total renovation especially the rooms. Breakfast is very limited and pool area small and old. Staff was nice and the rooms were large enough, but not enough to compensate the negative aspects. For sure bit recommended.

The Almirante is ranked a 5 star hotel. The location is great, the lobby is beautiful and the food was very good. I had a room with an ocean view and the view was stunning. The rooms were fine--nice bathroom, very comfortable bed, and other furnishings were fine (not extravagant by any means). I have two negative comments--check-in is a... More

It was a mission to complete the check in; I had to wait 45 mins because they didn't have any clean rooms; although they gave me. a complimentary free drink at the bar, I was already mad and tired.Besides that everything was pretty much okay. Not too much variety in the buffet for the breakfast. Staff were very kind.

The whole experience was excellent, but what stood out the most was the staff. They were very friendly, and went out of their ways to grant our every request.

Here's what I liked: GREAT ocean views, great location, nice lobby and bar, nice staff! I didn't like: WiFi in room was not stable at all, and only ONE English channel on TV (BBC). Not that I go on vacation to watch TV, but at the end of the day, I like to relax in bed and fall asleep to... More

This hotel is very pretty. The ambiance is great. It has a great look. There isn't much else I can say about it, other than it's pretty and the beds are rock solid and not quite big enough. It's definitely nothing to write home about. I would say Average.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Almirante for two nights. The hotel is very well located , the beach is across the street, the pool is on an upper floor and has a great view, but the best is the excellent service.

The hotel is located in the boring Bocagrande neighborhood which has an even more boring beach. You must come from terrible countries in order to find the Cartagena's downtown beaches beautiful...The hotel goes along with the beaches: there's no sand service; the breakfast is horrible and limited; the hotel decor is not refined; too much security guards around which annoys...
