You get what you pay for here. In a hotel, the three major needs are, location, location and location. This place has it, it's on the end of the peninsular of the Boca Grande strip. Even the beach vendors know not to "molestar" too much if you head out for a beach walk. It's an interesting location to look at the local fishermen, water taxis heading in and out of the Boca. We stayed on HHonors points and had a premier room. This is a good place to burn points. The room and patio were spectacular.
The breakfast is really quite good, 1/3 the price of the Hilton Lagoons at
Miami airport, with way better food and service, so overpriced is all relative. We actually had one of the better ceviches if our trip, served pool side with nice cold drinks. It was probably only a few dollars more than we would have paid in the old town, but try getting 4 great pools and waiter service there!!
If we come back to Cartagena, I know where we will stay.
Oh, the rest of the house were very nice to us,always pleasant greeting and very helpfull
