New hotel located next to the airport with 10 minutes drive to the Walled city( old town). Hotel has a transportation to the center, but i wouldn't count too much to that. During our 10 stay on this property it didn't run on 3 nights (carnival time) and also at least 2 time when we tried to use it the bus newer came for some reason. However taxis are cheap, so no problem of getting to the airport.
Staff could speak little better english. Front desk staff almost the onlyones that can communicate with english, don't expect others to do that. I think that hotel like this should have staff with more language skills if they wan't to consider themselves "worldclass" or bit "luxury" property.
Breakfast decent, i did miss little bit more variation to the foods as they were mostly the same every other day.
Very nice pool areas. The main pool was a bit crowded during weekends but still enough room for all The pool on the 10th floor had a great views and nice atmosphere also. You can also take advantage of the other pools at the old wing (las americas global resort).
Beach isn't the prettiest, but in cartagena's scale good. Not much vendors also around to bother you (they just walk throught the beach sometimes)
Hotel room average. I didn't found anything to be wrong with it, not just exactly my style. Also there wasn't any information on the room of anything about the hotel. There is a room service, but no menus for that in the rooms. These infos would be a nice to see, althought at this time we didn't need those.
Overall i did enjoy this hotel, mainly bacause of nice pools and quiet surroundings. I do still think that if they want to consider to be one of the best in cartagena there is still some way to go. Next time i would maybe go (if the Sheraton isn't already ready) to Hilton where i belive that staff is more international.
