Basic but decent; great breakfast buffet

This hotel offers basic amenities and it is located right on the beach. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet honestly made me happy. If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay while you explore Cartagena, this is a good choice. But if you want to spend a lot of time in the hotel, or if you want to spend a lot of time on the beach, I would recommend staying at one of the islands (Catalina, Providencia) because the hotel is very basic in terms of creature comforts. For example, there was no bathtub, the gym was sparse and there is no swimming pool at the hotel. If you want to spend time on the beach, I would recommend going to one of the islands just because the beach near the Capilla del Mar hotel and in the surrounding vicinity was polluted by (1) trash and (2) vendors trying to sell massages, food, drinks, hair braids, etc. They are like mosquitos -- one cannot relax because he/she is too busy swatting these pests. It was kind of annoying. Plus, a beach-goer has to mind his/her possessions. My flip flops were stolen from my beach chair. Clearly, this isn't the hotel's fault, but this type of issue is related to the hotel's location on the public beach. If you want quiet, desolate, uniterrupted beach time, go to a hotel on one of the islands with a private beach. Just an opinion. The breakfast buffet was quite good.

Capilla del Mar...

Hotel service is exceptional, all, but the front desk. Hotel rooms are OK, if you get a renovated room, but old room are fair. Ocean view offer is inaccurate, since they placed you on the side of the hotel and then you can have a partial view of the beach&sea.

Great Hotel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is one of the best hotels in Cartagena. Everything is great, location, staff, security, service, food. My room had a great view of the ocean and the city. It's easy to find restaurants, banks, stores, supermarkets from this hotel. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. I was very impressed with the hotel and the city. Cartagena is a beatiful city!!!!!!!!!!!!

RIP OFF-Go somewhere else

This hotel makes money by ripping people off. The rooms looked nothing like the pictures. Apparently in order to get a renovated room, you had to specifically request one (even though the site said that all rooms are renovated) and it is more expensive than the listed price - our room wasnt even close to what the pictures showed. Also, the website shows they have a spa and fitness facility. Not only was the spa not in the hotel, but the spa they referred to was closed. Same with the gym - there is apparently 1 down the street that you can pay to use. We tried to negotiate a better room or cost savings with management and got nowhere. We met another couple who had the same issues - in addition, they booked a casino package and kept being told they'd get their tokens for the casino "later, later, later" until they were finally told they would not be getting any tokens (which were to be used at the casino down the street and were included in their package). We booked this place and paid a premium becuase it looked nice and had a spa. We certainly did not get our money's worth!

"Excellent location, confortable hotel"

I was there to rest and visiting the city of Cartagena, enjoy the beach, exploring the surroundings areas. The hotel feel very safe in the area where it is located, and the people who stay in the hotel make you fell safe too.

Around the hotel there are plenty of restaurant where you can eat local cousin, international cousin, and the price is very affordable. It is a short drive to downtown where you can find more upscale restaurants.

Hotel stay was the worst

Location was great - across from beach - beach was not private - sells people hovering over you the entire time - had to go to the pool to be left alone. Food was good- service very spotty - Nitemare with keys to room that did not work 3 times - finally moved us to new room on our last nite- Cartagena lovely historical town. Would not go back to this hotel because of service.

The hotel was beautiful in all

The hotel was beautiful in all the areas except the rooms. The pictures online do not look like the actual rooms. The bed spreads were old and the beds were not that comfortable. The view was amazing and the food was delicious!! I loved the pool on top of the hotel!!
