“Great location”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Even though the beaches in Cartagena are not the most beautiful, they add ambiance to your stay.
This hotel is in Bocagrande close to pharmacies, grocery stores, restaurants and most importantly the beach. We stayed in room 611, it was a one bedroom suite, with 2 bathrooms and separate living and dining room. The view from the balcony was amazing. The hotel has private security that helps you crossing the street, and watch after you at the beach.The ride to Old Town is about $3.00 US so it is very convenient, you don't have to miss the charm of Old Town!

We stayed at Capilla del Mar for two nights during our travels around Colombia. The hotel is very clean, rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfy. Great views of the sea front from the balcony. The staff were really helpful and friendly. Breakfast was amazing!! Rooftop bar and pool are so cool!

Excellent customer service at all times. Great location, you can walk through the city And the old one is 10 minutes away in taxi. Relaxing environment at the spa. Amazing "limonada de coco". You can get a tour into the hotel's backstage. Recommended

I found a great deal on this hotel and stayed 3 nights. Although the room service menu was somewhat limited, it was still fantastic, the restaurant was very good and the waitstaff were polite, bilingual, and made my stay very enjoyable. I did book a massage (much needed and very relaxing). The hotel is right next to a beautiful beach where you can rent a chair or bed and umbrella.. though that was a bit pricey, if you can haggle, I'm sure you can get a good deal. The room itself was clean and very roomy. I was surprised that mine was so large.. a bedroom, bathroom, hall, sitting/living area with a tv, and a ocean view balcolny.. I also had ac and hot water, which in Cartagena is a luxury. This was my second visit to this great city and it was perfect. The staff were helpful and everyone spoke English and always had a smile. I also used the friendly booking service to grab up a day trip to Sport Baru on the Rosario Islands and Playa Blanca.. about $70 US and well worth it!
OH, and free breakfast! I will stay here again!

Room Tip: Rooms with the ocean view are spectacular

Breakfast is average - not amazing...right on the Boca Grande beach and centrally located, close to both Laguito and the old city - good service, small rooftop pool and very attentive staff. Quick taxi service out front!

Very comfortable hotel. Aside from the remodeling taking place in the main entrance, it's a very nice environment; the staff is attentive, patient, and very welcoming. The rooms have been remodeled nicely--very clean and enjoyable. The food is quite good, both in the restaurant and in the buffet, plus both have great views of the ocean. Overall a great place to stay.

Hotel is quite old but rooms have been recently updated. Rooms and bathroom are nice. Upper floors have nice views. Breakfast buffet is great, with plenty of offerings, nice fruit selection and egg station. Lobby is tiny. However hotel's fire safety is awful. No sprinklers and only one exit stair with open doors.
