Hotel Las Americas Torre del Mar
Ranked #28 of 157 Hotels in Cartagena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 2, 2014

I came to the hotel two weeks beforehand to see the rooms and make a booking for when my girlfriend arrives. After two months of not seeing her, I decided to book one of their best junior suites, so that we have a great view of the sunset over the city of Cartagena. Upon my arrival, they put me in a different room, at the other side of the hotel, where the sun doesn't shine at all. Very unhelpful at the front desk. I am very disappointed and frustrated, as this is why I came here two weeks ahead of time to make sure everything was setup the way I wanted it. NOT IMPRESSED!

The hotel is good. This tower is kinda new and modern. The rooms are big and clean. Service is not that fast at breakfast even though it is a buffet and waiters don't really have to do anything. Breakfast is ok but after a few days it's kinda repetitive and you get sick of it. Food is kinda of expensive, even the buffet option for lunch and dinner. The property is big and they have great beach access and cabanas. Also, they say that the beach is the cleanest of Cartagena. The rooftop pool is also amazing, the view of the ocean is just breathtaking. Also the pool is quieter than the beach, where people try to sell you massages, sunglasses etc.

I stayed at 3 hotels in Cartagena over Christmas. This was by far the best of the 3 and it was the least expensive. I also stayed at Premium, and Hotel Almirante. Pools close at 8pm which is the latest of the 3. Don't eat at the place on the south side, way overpriced and not good. The Pinia Colada was the best I have had anywhere and the cost of $18,000 is comparable to everywhere else. The slide is open from 10-6.

The beach was the best of the hotels and security was there to make you feel safe. The beach vendors were horrible and for that reason alone I would not go back to Cartagena for a caribbean vacation, I would suggest Roatan Honduras and its only 2 flights from LAX.

The rooms were wonderful. I had a beautiful upgraded walk in shower with plenty of space for 2 people

Really liked the Hotel, very friendly staff, rooms are beautiful with balcony and a great ocean view. Perfect Pool and great breakfast!
It's easy to go to Cartagena, maybe 10 minutes with taxi.
People here speak limited english, so it was perfect our friend spoke Spanish, otherwise not that much fun in Cartagena when you dont speak Spanish.
What I did not like was the beach, dark sand, but the rest was great!
So when you want to see Cartagena, it's a perfect Hotel!

The hotel is really beautiful.. everything looks new and the rooms are really comfortable. Staff is really nice and friendly. Every waiter or waitress, maids and even the taxi drivers were super nice to us and they are always willing to give us some advice on where to go or how much to pay for a trip or for a souvenir. The only issue we found was that the food quality was not really matching the prices the hotel asks for. But if you take the package that includes breakfast you can surely eat abundantly and then just pass the day without feeling hungry and maybe just have one big meal during the late afternoon in the "ciudad amurallada" or in the restaurants nearby.

I was recently at this hotel (Dec 2013) and will say that it is a very clean property throughout the resort. Service at the bars and restaurant was what you should expect from a hotel such as this one. Service staff are very polite with limited English as a second language. Travelers should not be complaining about a language barrier as you are in a Spanish speaking country. They will try too serve you as best as possible and that is satisfaction for me. If you arrive late like I did do not expect food as the restaurants and bars close at 11:00pm. For an all inclusive resort this bothers me a little. You have a small refrigerator in your room but they will charge you everything you take from it. When returning to your room simply stop by a bar and get extra water bottles or soft drinks for your room.

The hotel is located in a quiet area and about 8 kilometers from the old city. It will cost you 12,000 pesos which is about $7.00 both ways.

Cartagena beach not Varadero or Punta Cana beach. The sand is mostly dark and compacted. The water is brown which is not the most beautiful. As soon as you step on the beach you will be solicited by all kinds of people selling whatever they have too sell. It is almost a Wallmart on the beach. Sellers do not take no for an answer but they are polite. I accept this as they need to survive. If you have extra room in your suitcase bring clothing that you do not use no more and give them to the locals on the beach. It is extremely appreciated by them.

Room Tip: I was in block B7-room 310 which is located on the third floor almost above the pool. Very satisfied...
