“A good hotel”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Great rooms, very large bed and good A/C. Breakfast was pretty good but the breakfast area is small given the number of hotel rooms. Pool area is nice with quick access to the beach. The beach is plagued by sellers, you will be offered all kinds of goods and services every 10 seconds, so if annoys you just run to the sea and back to the sanctity of the pool area. Good service and nice staff. No bar as such, just a basic facility in the reception area. fair prices and good value.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the beach.

I specifically wanted a hotel outside the old town with an outside pool and overlooking the sea. We had a room with a sea view and the room and view were great. The staff were very good and the hotel is in good condition. The breakfast was slightly limited, but this seems to be the case in Colombia. My only concern was the building work at the apartments next door. For 2 days out of 4 we were subjected to 6 hours of hammering or drilling. The hotel did what they could, but ultimately they had no control. There is a fair amount of building work going on in Boca Grande and I am sure that other hotels will be affected by neighbouring works. It may be worth contacting your preferred hotel, before making a firm booking, to make sure there is no building work which may impact on your stay.

My wife had spent a few years of her childhood in this city. We were very excited to return. Based upon family recommendations we selected the Dann. We found the front desk staff to be wonderful. The other departments not so great. This hotel has been refurbished, but still is not up the expectations I had from the website. I would compare this property to an older Holiday Inn back in the States. It was not what I was looking for. Yes the sea was wonderful....but the peddlers were the most aggressive/oppressive I have ever encountered. They keep this beach from achieving what it might be....a world class destination.
We visited other hotels nearby. There are nicer hotels down the street, that understand the standards of international travel and meet them. Interesting destination, not quite ready for the big leagues yet.

Room Tip: I would ask for a sea view room.

I stayed at Hotel Dann for 4 nights in November on my first visit to Cartagena. I had picked the hotel based on reviews and its direct beachfront location. And that unique feature is not to be underestimated. The ocean is beautiful and warm. But as an obvious foreigner one is plagued by beach-vendors trying to sell everything from sunglasses to sex (no kidding). At Hotel Dann you just leave your belongings by the pool, exit through the guarded gate to the beach, take a swim and return directly, avoiding the vendors.

The hotel itself is newly renovated, with bright, modern and spaceous rooms. Staff is very friendly and helpful way above average. They really make a stay at Hotel Dann worthwhile. Breakfast was fully satisfying. I love it when they make omlets right in front of you. Generally the food at the restaurant is very good but also very pricey. There are decent restaurants within walking distance, so is a supermarket that also has an ATM.

I had a wonderful time at Hotel Dann. I would definitely stay there again.

We arrived 2 hours early to be greeted by a very nice bilingual receptionist (Jennifer) who informed us our room was ready although we so early for check-in. The room was huge and decorated like a chic South Beach hotel with a great view of the beach/pool. All the staff were helpful and very friendly, always asking if you needed something. Breakfast was perfect with a good selection of breads, meats, fruits, cereals, cheeses and even an omelet station for those wishing to overeat! In fact, breakfast was so plentiful, we only ate one other meal a day while in Cartagena. The location is away from the walled city area but right on the beach and only a 3 minute walk to all the restaurants and shops of Bocagrande. Buy your souvenier items here instead of the walled city and you will save $$$! The walled city and pretty much every other major tourist attraction is a short cab ride away and will only cost you between 6-8.000 pesos (less than $5 USD). Stay at this hotel if traveling to Cartagena!!

The positives first: friendly staff and good service, lovely pool and pool-area, and right on the beach (good sandy beach, warm sea). The standard room had a view of the pool and beach, but lacked tea/coffee-making facilities and an iron/ironing board. But the main shortcomings were the poor breakfast and location away from the main area of shops and restaurants on Bocagrande.

Breakfast! A buffet of mostly cold items, with horrible processed ham slices and processed cheese, but no bacon or sausages or tomatoes or mushrooms, no tea - and diabolical coffee.

A comment on Bocagrande: the beach is a public area and tourists are plagued by vendors literally every few minutes and all day long. Cocktails, massage, jet-ski rides, worthless trinkets, strolling musicians, etc...

This really spoilt the holiday for me, and I retreated to the peaceful seclusion of the hotel pool.
