Excellent location. Poor service.

The property is in excellent condition, all our requests were completed on a timely manner, staff is well skilled and on time. The location of the hotel is excellent, in the middle of the action with great views from the top terrace. Food is over the top, breakfast is served fast and as requested.

Wonderful stay in Cartagena , clean , nice location , nice staff , love it!

They totally go above and beyond in every category. Even sent doctor to our room to check our sick daughter. Who does that? Amazing hotel amazing location amazing service.

Beautiful architecture, great location and the view from roof top pool is amazing.

I loved the Hotel, is beautiful, but I was very disappointed in the customer service. It took me 25 mins to get a waiter in the pool area (it was not crowded, there were only 9 people and there was 4 staff members at the bar), once we received our drink we were not acknowledge again for another 20 mins! We decided to ask for our bill instead of another drink, mood was gone… At night time, the staff in the restaurant were very inattentive, and had a horrible attitude; their approach was not friendly, and we had to call them many times to get acknowledged (once again, it was not crowded we were literally the only couple in the restaurant, and there were 2 staff members). I wanted to spend the night of my birthday at the hotel, have a nice dinner and stay at the bar but we preferred to finish our dinner and leave. The stay at the hotel was great, the room was very clean, the view from the rooftop is majestic, location is perfect, but the staff needs to be charismatic, attentive and trained do everything they can to make your stay more comfortable not the opposite. Thank you.

Everything about this property was just perfect. The location cannot be bettered. It is in the heart of where it's all happening. The service, the employees are so kind and helpful. Our room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. The roof top pool has very dramatic views. The restaurant in the court has some of the best, unique and tasty dishes..... specially the Chinese rice and shrimp dishes.

Very nice hotel in middle of the walled city Not close to a beach

Exactly what we expected.We have this hotel on earlier occasions and this time we decided to book here.

Best hotel I've stayed in. And I've stayed at 6 different Ritz.

Very nice hotel close in the old city. Close to the beach, stores and best restaurants in the city.

Dear Guest, Pleasure to greet you on behalf of team Charleston Santa Teresa. We thank you for choosing to stay with us during your visit to Cartagena. Thank you as well for your constructive feedback. We understand it is the most effective way to improve where needed. It is truly a shame we did not live up to our standards. Our quality of service is one of our priorities and your experience lets us know that we should work harder to avoid these types of situations. Precisely one of our strenghts relies on the warmth and attentiveness of our team and we have failed you tremendously. Please let us know if you give us another opportunity in order for us to redeem ourselves by inviting you to a massage for two! We are very glad you enjoyed our property and location. Cordially, Natalia Navarro PR Hotel Charleston Santa Teresa
