"Great time, great experience!!!"
The hotel is absolutely beautiful, its architecture dates from the 40s and they have done a wonderful job to preserve it. the internal gardens are relaxing and magical, where you can experience wild life such as baby deer, sloth, toucans, falcons and variety of colorful birds.
The rooms have been brought up to current modern looks, with very comfy beds and ample space, where you can relax and have a good night sleep. You will not hear any noise from the street, or other rooms due to the sturdy construction of the building.
The location was perfect, across the street of bocagrande beach, where the hotel has complementary umbrellas and chairs at your disposition, full service restaurant for drinks and snacks brought to you by the hotel personnel that are extremely amicable. They will tell you not to buy from street vendors that roam around the beach all day long... we didn't buy art crafts, but we got massages from the ladies at the beach, they were so much fun and extremely good misuses, with them you can experience the local flavor of Cartagena, for $15-$20 they will do a complete body massage and tell you fun stories for you to have a good laugh... granted that you have to understand spanish to enjoy that part, still if you dont you will be very happy with the front beach massage :)
You are only 5-10 mins away from the city center (walled city) and the taxis or buses will take you there for $2-$4 per ride.
We couldn't be happier with the hotel, looking forward to go back
