Better than expected friedliness

We loved the breakfast buffet and the unexpected friendliness from the staff. Transportation was easily accessible and affordable to any point of interest. The beach across from hotel was a little too hectic with jet sky's so we move to the adjacent beach and it was a little better, but the best option was Isla del Encanto one of the 27 islands 40 minutes away by boat.

right on the beach

Capilla del Mar is a very pretty high rise hotel right on the Bocagrande beach. The food is very good. They have a nice small pool on the top floor with a bar. The staff is very thoughtful and friendly. The work-out room is nothing to write home about. Less than 10 minutes from the old city and less than a half hour from the airport.

Cartagena is a coast city, so seafood is popular. But the best seafood you can get is from CASA de Socorro.

Excellent hotel.... When complete.

This is a great hotel, but they are remodeling many of the rooms, so some of the rooms are very old and dreary. If you are lucky enough to get a newly remodeled room, you just hit a home run. The new rooms are amazing. The staff is the best, and the breakfast is amazing, and the location is perfect.

Excellent service

I arrived to the hotel very sick as I had food poisoning. They helped me with a quick chek-in and called the burde to my room, who then called the doctor. They helped me get my prescription and checked how I was feeling the next day. I was very happy with the service. My room was not refurbished as some others were, but it was very spatious. The air conditioning in the common areas is really, really cold so be prepared for that. Rooms with an ocean view really do have a fantstic view! I would definitely stay there again!

breakfast buffet was super!

It was a little disappointing. When we checked in we were asked if we wanted to upgrade to a newer room it's extra per night. Placed a collect call thru the operator & got charged over $66,000 pesos for a 17 min call. If you need to make a call from the hotel don't. They say one thing & you are charged something different. I was charged about $40 for the call.

There's a lot of restaurants near by. You don't need to eat at the hotel if you don't want to. We had baby beef at Carbon de Palo. Great service! Great food! One thing tho they do allow smoking there.

Good, clean and faired priced accomodation

Overall acceptable rooms and service. Decor may need some fresh look. Breakfast buffet was the best experienced while vacationing in Cartagena. Even the Hilton did not have this type of spread in the morning. Nice little beach on front of Hotel (but too many vendors breaking chops all the time). Good security. I will go there again. I missed the good coffe and the variety of (local) pastries in the morning.

It could be better in the future

They are in the middle of construction, in the hotel. The banging and drilling is all day long. Across from the hotel there is another huge construction. Sheraton is building another hotel. By the way they charge $8 a day if you want to use the benches at the beach. Breakfast was very good, and staff are awesome. If you bring a guest there is a $100 charge.

Great Stay in Boca Grande!

This is a very nice hotel, and not too expensive. I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite with a lving area and kitchenette. There were 2 bathrooms with showers in each. Flat screen TVs in each room. There is a nice, but small pool area with a bar on top of the hotel. The view is good from up there! The bar on the 21st floor was closed on the night we went to check it out. The hotel also has an open air restaurant that faces the beach. Great location, right across the street from the beach, where you can walk the entire coastline of Boca Grande. Plenty of beach shops, clothing shops, convenient stores, and places to eat within walking distance. There is a pretty good night club (I forget the name) just a block away on the corner of the main strip, just across from the new Hampton that is being built. A cab ride to Old Town is only 7,000 pesos.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you just need a place to sleep and wash up, Capilla del Mar is a bit much. On our second trip to Cartagena, we stated at Hotel Playa Club. We didn't have a suite there, but it was still about $60 cheaper / night.
