Bastion Hotel did a great job combining modern luxurious amenities and old world atmosphere. The historic building has lots of character and located inside the old walled city. Old world with modern touch. The atmosphere was very relaxing whether you're in the rooftop pool or their luxurious bed. The staff are very friendly & professional. They're always making sure you're enjoying your stay.
When our first hotel called the day before we were set to leave to say it was overbooked, the Santa Teresa stepped in to accommodate. This was our first trip to Colombia and knowing we were staying at the Santa Teresa made us feel even more excited. The service was great, from our tour of the hotel and our room to the daily cleaning service to the pool and restaurant staff. This is not a discount hotel - be prepared for some pretty hefty additional charges, esp with some meals. But if you are treating yourself (and if you are staying at the Santa Teresa, I assume you are!) this is a perfect hotel. Fantastic location, the rooftop pool is amazing. And the shower! Oh that shower!
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.

Excellent facilities, very helpful staff, fantastic selection of buffet breakfast dishes. Good location away from the old town but only 6,000 pesos to get into the centre by taxi. 18,000 pesos in taxi from airport.
