We just returned from a week at the Hotel Caribe in the Bocagrande neighborhood of Cartagena, Colombia. What a hotel! You almost feel like you have been transported back in time to a bygone era of old Colombia. But, there are still plenty of modern conveniences that make the stay comfortable and more than pleasant.
We had a magnificent view of the city from one side of our suite and a view of the lake and then off to the ocean from the other side. Each morning we checked to see if the sloths and iguanas in the trees below had moved during the wee hours of the night.
There is a sensational pool and great facilities, including a fitness room, game room and computer room. We had breakfast at the hotel one morning, which was a delightful spread of Colombia foods including fresh fruits. There are other eateries as well.
The staff is great--friendly and eager to make your stay exceptional.
