“Too far from the city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

This hotel is a good place if you want to avoid all Cartagena tourists, but it will get very expensive if you plan to go to the city. One-way cab ride to the city is 30,000/40,000 COP and takes about 20 minutes. There are no food options around the hotel, so you will most likely go to the city every day. Other than that, the hotel is very quiet, owners are very friendly and the area looks safe. On the other hand, for the price ($100+ per room), the rooms are quite small for the price (especially suites), breakfast is very basic and showers do not have hot water. For the same price, you can get amazing AirBnB apartments directly in Cartagena.

Me and my friend spend a week in this superb boutique hotel, we felt at home the moment we arrived..Lovely service , great food and good value too particularly for a touristy place.
Located in a small friendly village where the natives live, close to the airport and the city.
All rooms share a beautiful terrace overlooking the Caribbean sea... Fantastic... can't wait to come back again!

Kohsamui is a great and quiet place away from the busy city life of Cartagena.
It's simple and complete, perfect for reading, relaxing, taking long walks on the beach, or sunbathing without hassles.

The ownner is a very helpful and kind person who does not go out of her way to personally assist with anything you need. In our case, the taxi they ordered did not show up in time, and without hessitation drove us to the airport so we would make out flight. The other employees, and especially the guy, were very helpful as well. Since there are only 4 rooms, it feels like being at a B&B.

The food tasted very good, however the menu was a bit limited - only seafood - and honsetly a bit pricey considering the location and what you get. The rooms are big enough, and the ones on the outside are recommended because they have more windows and thus more light.
Internet can be a bit flakey at times, and the signal is not that strong overall. We were very happy staying here for the 2 nights to wind down.

Room Tip: The ones on the outside are recommended because they have more windows and thus more light

Good hotel, nice suites, we loved the great service of some of the staff members. Manzanillo has its charming sides, although the hotel is located so close to the town that it caused us inconveniences by night. Suites are spacious, clean, well decorated, comfortable. We had a nice time outside Cartagena, but we both agreed on the fact that the price/quality wasn't fair at all. More services or more complete services must be offered.

Lovelylittle boutique hotel on the beach about 20 minutes outside of Cartagena. Probably not a place for the average beach snob as the beach is pretty narrow (non existent when the tide is up) and there's quite an undertow but if you want to hang out and do pretty much nothing for a few days, it's a great spot. Staff are fantastic (I needed a cash machine and Marfe offered to drive me 10 mins up the road AND took me for a manicure while she was at it) and the food is great too. There is literally nothing in town so bring your own entertainment!

For what I was expecting and for the idea of our trip, 5 full days in Cartagena City would have been to much for us. We could have peacefull days at the beach and when we wanted, we headed to the city. The beach where the Hotel is located, is not crystal blue, but its clean and has a perfect water temperature. The village around the Hotel is very nice and is worth a walk for those who may want to see a real and interesting part of Colombia.
The food and drinks in the Hotel are not cheap at all, as what we have seen, almost the same prices as very good restaurants in the City, but it is as good as them.
There is a peacefulll deck perfect for chilling out and the rooms are perfect for what they are meant to. Maria Fernanda and her team are very helpfull, specially the guy who work there and is always using a bag. One detail : the shower has no hot water but it´s definetely not a problem, much on the contrary,you wont even miss it. Its a very good choice, you wont be disapointed.
