Dreamy and wonderful!
This hotel was fantastic! The employees were phenomenal and went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and special. Absolutely everyone that we interacted with was wonderful and helpful! The hotel is beautiful! The pool has the absolute best view of both old and new Cartagena. The breakfast was to die for. Probably one of the best included breakfast I’ve ever had. The drinks at the rooftop were great too! Our room was nicely decorated and awww so romantic to celebrate our anniversary. The view from the room was very dreamy to say the least.

8/10 Very Good

I would give this a solid 8.5 stars out of 10. We stayed in 5 different hotels during our honeymoon in Cartagena to experience different areas in Cartagena and this hotel is around the corner/ far enough away from the hustle and bustle if that is what you prefer.
