Very Good 8.0
4 Star Hotel
Stay was very good. Very attractive hotel and room was very nice and well appointed...only caveat on room was that housekeeping was somewhat erratic: towels, soap and paper products were hit and miss with calls to housekeeping needed to replenish as housekeeper never seemed to grasp the idea of simply having these things in the room; some days only one towel, other days no toilet paper, other days no glasses, other days no soap! (Yes, we were there a while - 8 days). Housekeeping was good at getting what we were missing but inconvenient to always have to be calling for what should just be done each day. Pool area quite nice and also very busy. View from SkyBar well worth going up to. Staff overall quite pleasant. Wifi very good and breakfast had very good variety. The only 'not so great' thing is the location...a little away from most everything but taxis are cheap! Great grocery store with Bank of Colombia ATM in it just across the street.

Hotel review 2020 feb
All good, location great in front of beach and next to mall/grocery market. Great security and 20 min safe walk to old city/Getsemani. Big pool and decent gym. Room privacy could be better as could hear other room and on 48th floor hear music from sky lounge but not that loud, no street noise. Elevators very efficient. Staff were courteous and friendly. Dishes had odor, dont know if Cartagena thing or hotel. TV mostly spanish, internet was fast. Have secure taxi service for guest and had no issues using.

Nice Hotel.
Overall we had a great stay at the hotel. The breakfast was really good. A bit disappointed that in order to use some facilities such as the sauna (that is normally included) you have to pay an extra fee. Also to go to the terrace on the top floor you have to pay a cover fee. The prices are quite high at the bar, I think if they review their prices most people will be there and the atmosphere will improve.

Great hotel outside the walled city. Would recommend for the price.

Poor 2.0
Very dissappointed
This hotel looks extremely clean but in the middle of the night I saw hundreds of ants all over the floor. and at 7:30 or 8 I could hear very loud construction work in a room nearby. I work late at night and this was a very early time for such loud noise such as banging and drilling. They could have chosen a room that would not be affected by the noise or had it start at a more reasonable time of day. They also charged me 80,000 COP for a friend that came to see me for less than an hour. I found that to be unreasonable I will never stay there again and I need to becareful trusting the rating sustem with

Pool was the best
Beautiful view. The beach is not very good. You can not go inside the water. Keep record of the snacks you eat as you might get some hidden charges. Pool was the best.
