Get away with girlfriend
Service was great. Everyone was helpful and friendly. I didn’t know they had live entertainment which was a plus. I like stay away from the city, the beaches wasn’t crowded. I’ll be staying here again.

10/10 Exceptional

The property is very nice. The breakfast buffet was excellent however the Lunch buffet leaves much to be desired. There were no fine detail toiletries such as toothpaste, toothbrush, mouthwash, shower caps, shaving kit offered. Front desk reception “Ana” was excellent. There no facial towels offered or numerous towels provided. Had to call housekeeping constantly.

January 2022 trip
I stayed here January 5-15, 2022. Only one elevator was operating and we were stuck in it for about five minutes one day. Service was lacking all over the property and it seemed to be a lack of training. All the staff were polite and friendly. This property is a three star in my opinion and not a bad value for what I paid.

2/10 Poor

Is a scam, we lost our vacation time and money booking this hotel. What they offer online is not the reality. The property is in a very bad condition, they have a big fight beetween the property owners and the hotel operator, only one elevator is working (for the past 6 months for about 130 rooms), They A/C have no maintenance, sometimes works sometimes not (The staff told that to us). The same problem with the Locks door rooms. In the bar and outside pool bar the refrigerators are damage several months ago so forget cold drinks in that weather. We have 3 rooms and 2 of them have a strong smell (Toilet drains smell), the hotel solution was to give as an air freshner :/ The Swiming pool has a bad smell too. The brand Melia is nowhere. So far from the city, restaurants and cartagena activity. There is nothing around the hotel so you are forced to eat in the hotel restaurants (bad and unsafe food, 3 of 5 were sick) . The beach Club was a small hotel that they buy called Karmairi next to the property, is in a good condition but the beach is noisy, dirty and unsafe. Don´t waste your time and money. Overrated, not a 5 star hotel, you will get better options in the city.
