This is a great property; excellent location in the Bocagrande district of Cartagena and about a 10-minute taxi ride to the walled old city. On the beach with the best amenities... pools, spa, family-friendly--all you'd want. Food is pretty good onsite. Because its a bit dated (though they are completely refurbishing the reception area and lobby right now (July 2014), you are likely to find this good value for money if you're ok to put up with a few rough edges and very slight tattiness. Furnishings are quite new--this has been refurbished probably not too long ago. Ask for a corner room and you'll get a great huge balcony. Avoid the "lake view" rooms if you can. The multi-coloured very bright spotlights they use to illuminate the building at night can be annoying because no matter how you adjust the window blinds, some green or blue light peeks in. But otherwise its a Hilton so things are predictable. Comfortable rooms, beds, pillows, good amenities and decent service. At USD 220 a night with breakfast (and its a great spread), it is decent value for what is a generally pricey city.
