We loved the colonial style and gardens of the hotel. Location is a little away from the walled city, not walking distance. Taxis to and from hotel were reasonable. We’ll definitely go back for more Cartagena experience. Hasta pronto!!!

A nice colonial-style hotel

The hotel is a large structure with a historic building in colonial style, plus a number of more recent buildings (around 1990 by the look of them). Excellent service, friendly reception (many languages spoken, that is quite uncommon in Colombia, where mostly you have to understand a speak Castillian...), good pool, a beach just across the road. A number of restaurants are available. In my room (in one of the modern buildings) the furniture is not brand new and the air conditioning noisy and difficult to tune (either icy or nothing). Close enough to the old town, plenty of taxis are available at a low cost (one-way to the center is around 3 dollars or euros). On the whole a pleasant stay.

Good hospitality

Good facility and environment friendly hotel with green surroundings. Friendly staff always helpful, who can communicate well in English. This makes the hotel attractive for all. Good for nature lovers and those who want to have a sun bath at the beach.

Outstanding value, location and service

What a great experience. Clean rooms, tasty food, (order the cocktail de langostinos if you want to get a true taste of the Caribbean). Shopping nearby, Very nice property but above all the service and friendliness of the staff. The term "calor humano" is epitomized by every member of the staff. Fernando at check in and Alexy at check out, Nayib at the elevator, Rode with the meeting arrangements, Fidel at the restaurant and so many others made our stay unforgettable. This hotel truly exemplifies the hospitality of the Cartageneros. Can't wait to bring my family to the hotel Caribe!
