Views are spectacular and the room was very comfortable.
Description of room said it had a coffee maker (one of the reasons I paid for superior room) but there was no coffee and even after asking the front desk to send it, it never arrived (they also said there may be a cost). Also, the water in the room is way over priced. I would expect a 5 star hotel to offer at least one complimentary bottle of water (and if there's a coffee machine there should be complimentary coffee).
The staff are very friendly and the reception is quick for check in
Breakfast was poor with limited choice of food
Beautiful views of the beach. Easy access to the beach. Very clean and the breakfast was well done. Close enough to the historic areas that it is very easy to get there and enjoy Cartagena! Fairly quiet part of town.
Bocagrande area is boring but isn't the hotel's fault--the best food, bars, and atmosphere are in the historic or San Diego regions. Public beach is busy and there are a lot of peddlers . A lot of traffic nearby.
The position near the beach, supermarket and the center of the city. The staff.
The hotel is old, compared to Italian 3 stars hotels. The room hasn’t opening windows, the bathroom is washed-up, the beach isn’t proper of the hotel as indicated on booking, so you need to pay to stay on the beach. The breakfast is not the American ones, there is very little choices.
Stacked up mini bar Magnifying mirror
There weee no instructions for the safe -didn’t know how to operate
