As a Gold Member, I tend to lean more towards Hilton when I travel. After an amazing stay at Hilton Diagonal Del Mar in Barcelona, I elected to stay at Hilton Cartagena for the Christmas holidays (8 nights). The hotel is well located at the tip of Boca Grande (Laguito). It is obvious that, it was a landmark 30+ years ago but not anymore. The bed and bedsheets are as comfortable as Barcelona (Diagonal del Mar). Although my room was in the executive section of the hotel, the furniture and the overall set-up were quite obsolete. You can also hear the conversation in the room next to you and when people were talking in the corridor. The Executive Lounge, hidden on the 10th floor, was below my expectations. They could have done better during the happy hour by offering some Spanish Cava, Gin and Vodka instead of just red and white wine from Chile. Adding some mixed nuts, cheese and crackers would not break the bank either. Food during the happy hour was often a challenge with empty trays for several minutes. Breakfast was at par with other top Hiltons. I would give them an A+ for that. However, the Smoothies and Eggs stations were very slow. Some young cooks were obviously inexperienced. Direct access to the beach and the lovely swimming pools were big pluses for this location. If you knew better, you might be a bit disappointed however, it is a great place for family vacation. The Team at the Reception area was very effective. As a token to their Gold Members, they could have offered a nice and cold welcome drink after a long trip instead of a little coconut sweet.

Lovely hotel

The Hilton in Cartagena was a fantastic place to stay during our Christmas break. We were given spacious and neat rooms with a beautiful sea view. Upon our arrival, we were surprised with some delicious bites and cold drinks on the expanse of the general manager; Mr. Vinod Agarwal. The bar area was stunning and the service was absolutely superb. The hotel is suited for both families as well as for business occasions.

Excellent Choice

It is the second time I've stayed at the hotel and I strongly recommend it. Beaches in Cartagena are not nice, so it is good to have a semi-private one, despite the vendors. Pools are not nice as in huge caribbean resorts, but they are nice enough, and very close, as the hotel is not big. Rooms are clean and have a nice size. And it is 10min / 4USD from the city, allowing beach/pool in the morning, late lunch in the ciudad amuralhada, and salsa in the evening.

great staff, good experience

pros: we enjoyed our stay at this Hilton. we had an ocean view room and access to the lounge. pools were well maintained and the pool bar did have good cocktails. the staff is fantastic and make every effort to ensure the comfort of guests. cons: while the executive lounge is great for breakfast, it is mediocre for snacks. limited food choices for vegetarians although the staff did their best to accommodate us. overall we loved our stay at this property and would return.

superb!
