My friend and I stayed at the Hotel Dann Cartagena for four nights in August 2014, and overall we were impressed. We stayed in a two bedroom suite on the tenth floor (Room 1003, to be exact), and it is absolutely huge! Not only is Room 1003 huge, but it has a balcony with an amazing view of the beach and the city skyline. Our balcony provided us with opportunities to take awesome pictures of the sunset, as well as many of the scenic views of the city and beach. I thoroughly enjoyed the pool, and its proximity to the beach is perfect. While I read stories about being harassed at the beach by vendors, I did not experience any harassment at all. I think that this was because I left everything at poolside and went to the beach to enjoy the beautiful water.
In addition to the location, another positive aspect of this hotel is the complimentary breakfast, which provides a wide selection of choices. The staff are friendly overall, too, but we ran into a cranky waiter in the restaurant.
The only thing that stops me from rating this hotel a 5 out of 5 are the two things that people have mentioned before: the cheapness on the towels (one per day) and the lack of an exercise room. Heck I would even give it the hotel a 5 out of 5 if it had an exercise room. This is a big area that is lacking.
Overall, I would highly recommend the Hotel Dann Cartagena, and I would stay here again in a flash. They just need to get an exercise room.
