Beautiful setting and grounds. The only thing I would suggest would be for Hilton security to better protect guests from the people selling services, etc., on the beach/oceanfront. The security guards mostly sat in the shade on a chair the entire time and didn't really protect guests from annoying people selling drugs, massages (with the suggestion of prostitution as well), fish, etc. The staff inside the hotel and at the pool were terrific but the security guards did nothing to protect guests trying to relax. I enjoy the ocean more than pools so I spent more time in the ocean.
the ocean is very private and very enjoyable but you must run a gauntlet of hustlers to get there. I often felt uneasy about the constant propositions from people trying to sell goods and services at the beach, and felt nervous about leaving my cell phone, etc. at the beach.
Hotel staff are friendly, accommodating, and extremely helpful. My husband stayed here as a child and it was just as he remembered. Pool is clean and bathrooms are too. ZERO mold which is typical in tropical climates. Our kids had a blast and loved the experience.
Great location for shopping, eating, and roaming around the walled city. Most popular beaches are about a mile away, but this is the better place to stay than the options near the beach. Multiple great restaurants close, including the hotel restaurant. Great couple's shower!
The Hotel was great. The common areas where very spacious and clean. The complementary breakfast was great, my room wasnt as big but big enough and had a great view.
If i go back to Cartagena i would stay there again.
