One of the oldest, yet immaculate and wonderful

It used to be the skyscraper on the beach, now it is one of the shortest hotels.It is very well maintained. The rooms are spotless, beautifully decorated in beach colors and white tile floors, and the service is great. Centrally located, easy walking to everything on the beach you'd want or need, including a grocery where you can by bottled water and booze cheaply. Don't miss the roof pool, it is fun and has a bar.

Great experience

This was a really good hotel. Staff was friendly, hotel clean, and a great location. I would visit again. We got a total of 4 rooms. 2 were refurbished and I suppose the others will be finished soon, to make the hotel that much better.

A Grand Time in Bocagrande!

This hotel surpassed my expectations from the moment we arrived from the pleasant staff in all aspects (restaurant , check-in, pool, bell guy). I have to say , though, that the breeze was a lot warmer with the men on staff than the women. They were cordial at the most. The wifi was super fast and there was even an area for computer use. We were about short 15 minute ride from the airport (should be about 19 pesos), and there were plenty of taxis around at all times. My friend and I had a spacious, double bed room with a balcony and a view of the beach.The room was gorgeous and clean with a wonderful shower so I didn't have any complaints. The rooftop swimming pool was divine and the pool boys were very accommodating with great music. Don't even sleep on the restaurant in the hotel! It was THE BEST complimentary breakfast I've ever had. The U.S. needs to step it's game up in this regard! Shout out to charming Luis who always attended to us with that wonderful smile. We had a wonderful lunch when we first arrived so it set the standard for the rest of our trip. The mojitos (both at the pool and the restaurant) were consistently on point and the best I've ever had. Note to those who don't speak Spanish: Don't expect that just because it's a touristy area that you'll have the comforts of English everywhere. Not at all! Not even with the hotel staff. I think we only encountered maybe three that understood/could speak English. I had to pull my Spanish out of my back pocket and dust it off for nearly everywhere we went. No problemo! This hotel is what's known to be a level 6 area (wealthiest area) and it wonderful in its own right, however, it sits steps away from the junkiest looking beach ever. It's unfortunate that there isn't more upkeep and investment from the city in such a beachfront, touristy area. We only enjoyed watching the shore coming in from the balcony and never even went down there, but that's just my two cents. I guess you can't have it all, right?

Honeymoon Stay

We had a wonderful stay here for our first time in Cartagena. The location is conveniently located in Bocagrande, just a 5 minute taxi from the Walled City. We stayed for one week for our honeymoon and arrived to find roses in our room. Our room overlooked the ocean and it was a truly incredible view. The top level pool is amazing with wonderful city views. It's not technically on the beach, but right across a narrow street from the beach. The food in the restaurant was pretty good, but we really enjoyed the free breakfast everyday. Overall, we were very very happy with our stay at Capilla Del Mar. The service was friendly, especially from the waitstaff- specifically Luis, who we will always remember! For the price and location, it was definitely a great choice. I will admit, when we first checked into Capilla Del Mar, I was a bit turned off to the location since the hotel next door is under construction and the street out front is a bit noisy, but I think it really goes with the charm of Cartagena and doesn't reflect this hotel. However as each day passed, I loved our hotel and location more and more!!

I had the best of time for my 32nd birthday! The rooms were clean. hotel is across the street from beach which is an ideal location. I even came back to my room on my birthday to find a plate wishing me well with a brownie! That was incredibly thoughtful as I didn't tell them that it was my birthday.
