One night was enough for me. The lobby is on the 16th floor, so don't expect to be greeted before you enter the elevator with other unknown people. Security? The rooms are typical Hampton -- fine, but without any Latin American flavor. Pool is small with unbearable loud music the two times I checked it. Breakfast buffet was as bland as the hotel design. No restaurant or room service after the breakfast buffet. If this hotel is not for you, ask for a refund if you have paid for additional nights. They were nice enough to refund my second night, and gave me the refund in Colombian pesos, which was fine. I moved to another hotel in the historical area which was 1/3 the price, with a friendly Cartagena vibe.
