First time in Cartagena
Overall, we were happy with our stay. Our room was a bit outdated and the beds were not the most comfortable. However, we did not spend much time in our room and you shouldn't either since there is so much to explore. The hote was close to shopping and the beach is just steps outside the hotel. The outdoor pool was a lot of fun and very clean. The service at this hotel was outstanding and they were all very friendly. For the price, I think we got a great deal.

Everyting - Just Perfect for Me
This is my 3rd time staying in Hampton in Barranquilla for the past 13 months. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff are very professional, friendly and very helpful. The neighborhood is nice. Taxi is readily available in front of the hotel to take you anyway in Barranquilla, and is inexpensive. You can find many restaurants in the neighborhood. I booked my room through Hotels.com, and I got a great deal.

Recommended for families!
BASICS: 3 adults, 1 senior, 1 baby) in 2x rooms [31 Mar-05 Apr]. Traveled last minute. Hotel was 1/3 in the $70-78 USD range; many others available nearby at +$100 USD. SERVICE: Without a doubt what made this hotel stand out. The front desk staff was welcoming, staff was friendly & always smiling. ARRIVAL: There are 3x parking spots in front of the hotel (not accountable for damages/loses). They offer a parking pass to the nearby mall, at $4,000 COP per day. Quick check-in. ROOM (Double): clean tile floors, modern bedspread & sheets, minimalist decoration, small flat-screen TV, very clean bathroom & shower areas (no tub). Pillows were soft, the bed less so, but comfortable. Additional room guests payed $90,000 COP per day (better get another room). We left the "do not disturb" sign up the first day, but they still cleaned/fixed our room, which we didn't mind. No problems with noise. BREAKFAST: Simple yet sufficient. Bread, rolls, REAL scrambled eggs, cheese, coffee, hot chocolate, arepas, fruit (papaya, melon, watermelon), milk, fruit juices, & frosted flakes). FACILITIES: Lobby has 2 areas with couches. Pool area open from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. A door connects the hotel's pool to the beach (locked after 6 p.m.) This area is also separated by a transparent plexiglass that allows for cool beach views. AREA: Restaurants, cafes, & various within a 1 km radius of the hotel. There's a next door mall (Nao) & another one within 2 km towards the walled city.

Very Friendly and Helpful Staff Plus Good Price
I stayed in Hotel Playa for three times. The staff were always very friendly, helpful and professional. The price of room is inexpensive compared to many other hotels in Bocogrande, Cartagena. The beach is right across the street. The location is also very convenient.
