    Reasonable place but very far from a 5 star rating. Tired facilities, next to a massive eyesore of an abandoned building.

    Old hotel that badly needs a rehab. The slowest elevators in colombia. I brought a friend over for awhile and they tried to charge me almost $100 guest fee! Thats what i paid fof the room!. I come to Cartagena once or twice a year and will never stay at this dump again. I will stick with what is the best....Hotel Estelar.... brand new and beautiful.

    Excellent Place to Stay!

    This was an excellent choice for myself and my 3 friends. Everyone was friendly, and helpful. Walking distance to restaurants and a 24 hour convenient store.

    Amazing, except...

    Poor wi-fi coverage in room, but otherwise a very pleasant stay. Staff is very friendly, the room was sparkling clean and a nice beach view. Hopefully the city will place restrictions on cars along the strip though.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Upon check in they welcomed us and immediately took our bags---front desk was awesome!. We stayed in a Suite with 2 bedrooms on floor 10--I enjoyed the room and balcony--not many hotels have those. The room service/food is very good. I ordered pizza, shrimp cocktail, hamburger (only suggestion here--use a bit smaller roll), arepa con huevo, & chicken salad sandwich. We also ate at Restaurante San Marino on the 2nd floor. I had Red Snapper ($16-$17 USD) and my wife ate pork ($10-$12 USD). All was excellent! We also went to the pool on top of the property multiple times and had drinks there--the Pina Coladas are wonderful and so are the staff--my son loves you all! Breakfast buffet was great and great price--(get when you book your room). We also ordered from the coffee bar on site multiple times--she took care of me and thank you soo much for having donuts! You also have beach access across the street with private area for Capila guests--you pay like $5 and get a private umbrella and 2 plastic lounge chairs--they also have private security watching you and make sure you are not getting harassed too much by the venders on the beach---just say No Gracias and they move on--but, if you do have money to spare please buy something. I have stayed here before and I have had an excellent stay both times----the Staff, Service, and Food Quality are all 5/5 stars. Thanks again and I will be back!
