MiamiChemical Cartagena trip
Hotel in desperate need of updating. Reserved a junior suite and living area was literally a joke. A dining room table and two chairs. Mini bar was beyond a joke. One beer, two gatorades and one bottle of cheap whiskey. There was no free waters in the room. The pool was the highlight. Very big and the resort from the outside is very beautiful and historic. The check in clerk was very nice, Enrique, but the time involved is very inconvenient. Even for Colombia. Very comfortable Bed and decent bathroom. I would probably go elsewhere next time since it was just for one night.

Hotel review
Two parts of hotel old and older. Firsthe building I stayed in was directly next to a huge park with rides for kids (constant noise from park and street). Also bedroom was hot. I complained and was immediately moved to other side of hotel that did not require me to carry my luggage across a street and up stairs. The new room had a beach view and a window that could be opened to hear the ocean. Much cleaner room and cooler in temperature. Staff did not speak English so make sure you know some Spanish. I did anot island tour that was nice. A plus was the pool and food. Food very good and exceeded expectations along with pool service. Rooms needs to be renovated. Excellent taxi service out front.

Great hotel to relax by the pool
Had a great 5 day stay here. Location is perfect, 25 mins from airport, 10 mins from old city, beach across the street. Pool area is very clean and plenty of beds. Bar service was good some days but very slow on others. Front desk staff were superb. Note - there was construction happening right next to the pool that looked like it was in its early stages. This created some noise.

This hotel is a resort. The pool is the largest in Cartagena. The staff provided the highest level of service that could be given. I highly recommend this hotel.

Great Hotel
The hotel was really great. And I would stay there again. My only issue was the room I had was on the back side of the building and was against a street so there was some noise. I was on vacation so I wanted to sleep in, and it was a challenge. I'm sure rooms on the other side of the hotel, not against the street, or in the other buildings of the hotel would have been better. Also, I am 100% sure they would have moved me if I had asked, but I was too lazy to pack my stuff and move rooms. The struggle is real :) But this hotel is fantastic, Has and awesome pool!, and is in a great location in the Bocagrande. Very safe and awesome for tourists. it was my first time in Colombia and I will be going back. Don't hesitate to stay in this hotel, you wont regret it. -Andy
