We found this hotel accidentally after an evening at a nearby roof-top bar. We immediately reserved a room and relocated from another hotel. Everything about our stay was wonderful. Every member of the front desk staff is professional and friendly. The breakfast (included) is served in a large, sun-filled (most of the time!) room and it is a hearty one with many options. The service in the breakfast room is impeccable. Our room was huge (a standard room with two queen beds) and included a work station, good lighting for bedtime reading, comfortable bedding and fabulous shower. The roof-top pool and lounge chairs are also excellent quality. There are cushioned wooden lounge chairs at the pool with tables that slide out for your drinks, etc. We highly recommend this great hotel.
Cartagena is about an hour and a half away by car. The front desk arranged "puerta a puerta" service by van for ten dollars each. This was a very comfortable travel option for getting to Cartagena.
