My wife and I along with her parents had an amazing time at El Coro. Everything from the food, to the drinks to the service was great. The hostess Paula was super attentive and made our entire experience fantastic. We had such a great time...we came back again two days later and experienced the same high level experience. I fully recommend El Coro, especially on Friday and Saturday nights when they have live music.More

This is a great looking upscale bar. We ordered drinks and an empanada appetizer, the drinks took about 15 to arrive but the empanadas took more than 30 minutes to show up even after we reminded then twice. We wanted to enjoy this place because...it is beautiful, but it they made it a lot more difficult than it should have been.More

We came into this bar because we were waiting for a table in the restaurant across the street. Let me tell you, Gustavo, the bartender was AMAZING! He made some tasty and strong cocktails. Also, his service was just great! Extremely friendly and great person...to speak to! Also, this bar is located inside of a hotel and it is beautiful! Definitely, coming back!More

Read reviews and suggestions on this location for top notch cocktails. We were not disappointed, prices are reasonable and staff is attentive. The monk lighting ceremony is a must do, unfortunately we arrived shortly after it had occurred. The Aro De Chocolate is beyond words,...must have!!!More

This is one of our favorite bar in Cartagena, located at the Sofitel Santa Clara hotel. There is always different artist artworks featured on the walls. Do not miss to see the live music/dance bands playing on certain nights of the week. The cocktails are...very good. My favorite is the El Ritual. We love their chocolate desert. Highly recommended.More

We visited this after dinner one evening in Cartagena. It's a great little find. Secluded in the Santa Clara hotel. Very romantic, private and because it's inside you avoid any of the "road" noise or passers by. There was a live-band, folks were dancing, folks...were drinking and talking - excellent vibe. Drinks were very well made, too.More

We did not stay at the hotel, but enjoyed a delicious lunch in the courtyard restaurant on a very hot day. The superb architecture gave shade from the heat of the hot sunny day. It was a relaxing spot to sit in the shade and...view the beautiful foliage in the interior courtyard. We all loved our meals and I in particularly highly recommend the roast chicken with potatoes. The service was excellent. It looks like a beautiful hotel to stay as well.More
