Very well located close to all great attractions in Downtown
Around the area great restaurants
Great breakfast in hotel
Great evening terrace for drinks light food and listening music and feel the Caribbean breeze....
People are very nice
The biggest problem was that there was nobody on staff to let me out of the hotel at 4 AM when I told them I needed to leave to catch a flight.
They lock the doors (with a key) every night. I'd requested that they reserve a taxi for me, but was told that calling a taxi as needed would be no problem. But there was nobody on duty at reception when I went to leave. A note saying I needed a taxi at 4 AM was posted at the reception desk, so the staff should have been aware. Fortunately, the doors were not especially "robust" and I was able to pull them open despite the lock and get out.. Hopefully they weren't permanently damaged. After that I had to walk a few blocks with luggage to find a taxi..
Other than that, the place was fine. A little expensive for what you get, but nothing for the tourist in Caratgena is cheap. It's in a good location in the old city, close to tourist sites, stores, and restaurants. The room wasn't huge but it's perfectly acceptable. My room overlooked the street but had a double door to the balcony to cut the noise. Breakfast was typical - fruit, eggs, toast, juice and a hot drink. Some of the staff speak English (and my passable Spanish did the rest). They have satellite TV and good AC, plus a ceiling fan. But the hotel is on the second floor and there is no elevator, so if you have luggage you need to haul it up the stairs.
The hotel is well located on Bocagrande. The beach is very close, but Bocagrande itself is not the best beach area. The hotel pool is nice for getting some sun.
Our room was clean, modern, and very comfortable. The bathroom has good fixtures, a hair dryer, good hot water, and nice towels. The bed was comfortable. We only had some trouble controlling the AC but it was a good system.
Breakfast is a good buffet with scrambled eggs, sausages, little arepas, breads, cereal, fruits, coffee, tea, juice.
The staff were nice and helpful, not overly friendly but always available.

What a wonderful stay! The staff was wonderful, very attentive from the front desk, restaurant and housekeeping. The hotel was very well decorated, clean, and the location was right on the beach. The food was very tasty, the breakfast buffet was great, made to order eggs which tasted incredible!!! We also had lunch and dinner and was all great. We will stay again on our next visit to Cartagena!!! Thank you!

The hotel location is excellent, right on the beachfront. it is a ten minute cab ride to the old city center & about twenty to the airport. Cabs are plentiful, inexpensive & the drivers are very pleasant. The rooftop pool is larger than most, with a bar and a stunning ocean view. There is a sports bar/ restaurant located on the second floor with good food, facing the ocean and open to the breeze. The rooms are comfortable & a nice size. We have stayed there before & would stay there again in the future.
What a lovely time, from morning buffet, especially arepa de huevo, to piña coladas at the pool bar, to floating in the mar caribe, to brochettes de carne y mariscos for lunch, siesta in the air conditioned room in bloque 2, sight seeing in the old city, dinner at La plaza de Santo Pedro Claver and returning to the comfort of an enormous king-sized bed, and doing the same next day!
Bravo to el hotel de las Americas!
"Where I will be staying in Cartagena in the future"
Prone to profound laziness, I rarely take time to reflect on places I have stayed, but the staff and room at the Regatta were so wonderful I just have to pass this along. We (myself, wife and newborn baby) couldn't have asked for a more pleasant or satisfying stay in a great city where people do their utmost to promote not only their hotel, but the city, and country, as well. The rooms are converted apartments, and so are very spacious and comfortable, each with its own unique design, and tons of closet space. The beach is directly out front of the hotel, and towel service is provided, although you need to rent chairs and an umbrella ($12-15 all day) if you desire. The location is perfect, easy walking distance to anything you may need (shopping, food), but for me the staff/maintenance's sincerely pleasant, "we will help with whatever " attitude were a most welcome and pleasant part of a spectacular place to stay. Great price, great service, good buffet (simple, but plentiful with great fruit), make this the place I will be staying in Cartagena in the future.
The hotel is well located, clean and fairly new. The staff could be more attentive, and they definitely need a maintenance crew. They could not turn on the water heater in the room nor in the jacuzzi. The top floor jacuzzi was never working.
