The hotel is nice, great value for the money. The only draw back is that the hotel does not offer hot water for bathing. one staff member said it's hot in Cartagena, people don't mind cold showers. All but me, but still had a nice stay.
love hot shower, Baltimore Maryland

"Hotel is very pleasant with a very friendly staff,"
We were at the hotel in early May, which is a fairly slow time. The hotel is quite attractive in an excellent location for restaurants, etc. Not far from the beach. They seemed to be well staffed. Only hesitation is that most staff have very limited English skills. So, like most of Colombia, be prepared with at least a few Spanish phrases.

We stayed in this hotel with our daughter and her new Colombian husband following their wedding on our first visit every to Colombia. We took a long time choosing a hotel as it was such an important occasion. It did not disappoint. The rooms were excellent, the staff were friendly, the food was lovely. There is a private beach with sunshades and chairs for free (sunbeds extra) and towels for the pool and beach are free. The sunbeds by the pool are free.
It is close enough to the shops and restaurants in Bocagrande to walk to them (10 mins) and it is just a short taxi ride to the centre and the old walled town which is well worth a visit in the day for its historical interest and in the evening for a wide range of eateries to suit all pockets. We had been warned that Colombia could be a dangerous place but were travelling with a Colombian. However, the hotel has private security who are present but discreet, helping to make guests feel welcome and secure. Highly recommended.

The hotel administrator takes your cash gives you the key and a cell number. Don't expect to get an answer if you call about an issue.
They promise to pick you up at the airport but plan on a cab. Cost is about $14 each way so use your debit card inside the airport area so you'll have cash on hand. Never use a regular credit card at any restaurant. I'm not sure why it takes forever to get an approval on credit cards and it's all taking place in some back room. Forget the packaged tours to the islands It's a rip-off. Your better off just buying your ticket at the port, hop a fast boat and eat at the many nicer places on the beach fronts. Everyone offers snorkel rigs but don't pay more than $10 bills to rent them.

We stayed at the hotel for a week and was a very good experience. The hotel is quite new, rooms with TV, Air Conditioning, security box and a good bath. However, the bed was not soft as expected (we requested a new one to be able to sleep). Rooms are big with a
The hotel has a casino, a good american breakfast (buffet with juices, fruits, omelet and so on), a nice swimming pool in the third floor but the most notable is the excellent hotel staff (mainly the one that assist on the breakfasts).
