If only I had seen the poor reviews before my mother-in-law had booked this hotel through a travel agency, I would have paid more money for a better hotel. As soon as you walk in you can tell it is cheap, there is no air conditioning in the lobby just a massive fan put on the wall, I felt sorry... More

After spending some great time on January, my friends and I decided to come again to this place. We know the hotel isn't perfect but it offers a great price for a an all-inclusive plan.

Tv did not work. No outlets where to charge your devices. No towels, if you dont ask for. Food terrible. Same eggs everyday for breakfast. Reuse napkins without... More

When we first got to the hotel, our room wasn't ready so we went to the rooftop pool while we waited but when we got there, the pool was so dirty with scum it wasn't inviting plus, all the chairs needed to be changed. When our room was finally ready, the air conditioning wasn't working. Now, I'm not one to... More

The ‘Costa del Sol Hotel’ is a very well located place to stay at Cartagena. It’s situated in Bocagrande, right in front of the beach (this area has a lot of restaurants and shops, you can also find a lot of souvenirs street-sellers, so you don't have to worry about being bored). The hotel is also very close to the... More

I travel 300+ nights a year from very high end to very low end properties (Hilton Diamond, Starwood Platinum, IHG Spire Elite). Yes, there are a many properties blocks away to pay 3x, 4x, 10x the money. However Costa Del Sol has good value for a last minute booking on NYE week. First - this is a LOCAL COLOMBIA FAMILY...

Check-in took nearly 20 minutes, the staff couldn't find our booking.com reservation. Then we were asked to move to our room, on the top floor on our own, nobody to accompany us. The room was small, dirty and the linens needs to be changed immediately. The floor tiles were absent at certain places. The split AC leaked water inside the... More
