      Most definately not a five star facility.

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      Very good security

      The room is ok, but the bathroom is to small and unconfortable. The towels very bad, old and small. Our reservation was for sea view, and we never got that, our view was roof tops.

      Great place to stay next to the beach with very professional and friendly staff. Would be my first choice to stay on my next trip.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      The fact that it was close to the beach (accross the street) as well as the courteous staff members. I felt as if I was at home. The cleanliness of the rooms, the design, the food, etc. etc. They also took care of getting tickets to places of interest. I would stay in this hotel again and again.

      The Hotel is not a five-star one. The bed and bathroom are very old.

      As an avid reader and follower of other peoples reviews when choosing hotels I chose this hotel over all others based on the sensible comments and was not disappointed. Breakfast was great and the dinner buffet meals where real value for money compared to all other restaurants in Cartagena. Service people where friendly and very helpful especially the valle door personnel which helped with organization and selection of tours. Location was great as it is central in Boca Grande where the main shops and restaurants are. Rooms are decent quality and big enough for a couple. Airconditioning was very strong and cold which is what is needed in Cartagena. Towels for the beach are free as well as the gym and other facilities in the hotel. Prices for stay are good in comparison to all other less inferior hotels which charge the same or even more ( fact is that it is a tourist city and you get stung wherever you go). I noticed other peoples reviews on the extra charges .... well that is true however like I said it is Cartagena wide so you can not escape paying for these charges such as City tourist tax and service charges. Overall a very pleasant stay. Do yourself a favour and stay at this place if you want a hassle free holiday.

      Only draw back is that English speaking staff where hard to come by, but you will find that in many places in the city.

    • Group of friends

      It is the perfect location, and has a wonderful ambiance. I would have wished for the rooms to be more luxurious, but overall it was a very nice stay.

      The lobby and the outside gave the impression that the rooms were going to be spectacular... But they were just average.

    • Couple
      7.0

      Friendly/helpful/welcoming staff. Cleanliness. Comfortable. Good location for beach and easy access to old city.

      Gym Equipment. A little overpriced.
