“Beyond Expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2010

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.

The new Sonesta Barranquilla has it all - great rooms with a quality level similar to the W chain; true hard wired and wireless high speed internet for business; an ambience of being at the "place to stay" in Barranquilla; good food and multiple choices for cuisines in the hotel and in the adjacent mall. Connected to a brand new mall and one of Barranquilla's top night spots, Coco Beach Club, you are in for a great stay for business and pleasure in what is sure to be Barranquilla's best for a long time to come. The bar has been raised and the value cannot be beaten.
