Magnificent hotel in great location!! Good restaurants on site, fabulous ones within walking distance. Plus, the beach with all of it’s characters keep you happy! Only thing I didn’t like was the, albeit small, visitor registration charges. Otherwise, I loved it!! Excellent, excellent staff too!! Maria, Yeison AND Diego helped me greatly to feel welcomed!

The property is in a great location the beach is right across the street. Plenty of restaurants and stores within walking distance. The property also smelled great. Staff was welcoming. We stay in room 1300 and had a good view of the beach from our room. Just be aware of anything you take from the mini fridge. I was over charged for a few things.

Good hotel… shame about the service
It’s a well located hotel in the centre of the beach area of Cartagena. Service levels are low…. The pool area especially on all but the special event day (which was good!) was slow, glum and very disappointing. The Terrace Bar was a little better in terms of service but the drinks they served were awful!!!! Our room was rarely cleaned before 5pm and usually missed a towel or something from the whole package. It’s a pity that this good hotel lets itself down in this way. The concierges were really helpful and friendly though…. Perhaps the rest of the staff could take notes!!!
