The hotel is about 2 km to the Clock Tower of historic Cartagena, approx 20min walk. Great location! The facility is as we expected for the 3-star hotel. No complaints. Our room is on the 13 th floor, the balcony has a great oceanview, but the traffic noise is rather loud, as the main road is right in front of...

The rooms are bright white, basic furnishings but spacious and a flat screen tv with channels in English. The view of the sea is beautiful. The bathrom was...

There is always a crowd checking in, checking out, waiting for buses, cabs. The buffet for lunch is very run of the mill. The A La Carte restaurants are fair. The seafood had a good seafood soup. The rooms are small but clean. The maid service is excellent. The showers a disappointment, The beach on the ocean is lovely with...

We visited in March with the Air Transat duo package. 3 nights in Decameron Cartegena and 4 in Baru. The check in was painful and they did not provide English info about the hotel at the time. The orientation was the next day at 1 pm which made us return from the old city to find out info that should...

On the plus side: Staff were friendly but most spoke no English but I'm okay with that. Our beds were comfortable. The cleaning ladies did an okay job. Some of the food was okay. The water pressure in the shower was very good. The view from our room (1207) of the old city was very nice On the negative side:...

We booked this hotel as part of a duo package where we went to Isla Palma afterwards. Only spent 3 nights here and honestly we were hardly in the hotel at all. The rooms are fine. The beds are sooo comfy and the AC is great. The shower is okay and they give you a new big bottle of water...

In order to appreciate this hotel one must have their expectations in check. It is spot on if you need a change from the typical resort experience. It is a "hotel" with the convenience of food and drink for the budget conscious. Food is very good if you are willing to try some of the local fare you will be...

This hotel was a pleasant surprise after all negative reviews I read . The hotel is 15 minutes from the airport and all transfers were very fast and easy. We were very happy with our room, a junior suite : large entrance room with sofa and armchairs , flat scream TV , fridge , a separate large bedroom with another...

Building was nice. If you don't speak Spanish you may have problems talking to staff. We were on the 9th floor and the music from the show was so loud you could not hear the TV. Show went from about 7 pm to 11 pm every night. Old City was very interesting. Beach was average. The Italian restaurant was good,...
