At the arrival a person took us to our apartment, the apartment have 2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, 4 beds and living room with kitchen, the towels were dirty, the bed sheets where stained with body fluids we noticed the next morning, my child was taking a shower and the bedroom was flooded, we requested another apartment in better condition, the other apartment have the same setup this apartment the microwave hot water heater and 2 ac units did not work and Cartagena temp is very high very unpleasant for my children, on the 3 day of our stay one toilet was out of service, we tried to request service and never happened my wife was advice that a manager like to talk to us about extra charges, she never show up.. also the building is very tall and use 3 elevators and only 2 were in service, I hear some complaints of another family having issues of not running water in their apartment and some cockroaches, I only sow one death in my bedroom. The only friendly staff was a security guard in the main door entrance checking a wristband to every person, in general the location is close to the beach have a middle size swimming pool, and small store at floor M with a Gym I personally don’t recommend this place for a family with children may be a good option for adults 1 or 2 stars hotel.

Great location, ocean view is amazing , pool is big and relaxing. The apartments were clean when we arrived. Check in takes too long, not all elevators operate at the same time so we had to wait, my fridge was old and rusty, it works but it looked really bad. Not all the apartments are the same some have new appliances. They should provide changing towels even for a charge and also towels at the pool are not provided. Only one key is provided and WiFi doesn't work. I would stay again as it's family friendly but I will make sure I get an upgraded apartment. Or try the newer Palmetto's
