10/10 Exceptional

We loved our stay at the Estelar resort. There is a quiet pool area in the back, more pool activities need to food pavilions, direct access to the beach, a great spa, wonderful meal selection and service and easy access into Cartagena via a complementary shuttle. We love staying here and when just with my spouse Melia is a great option as well.

4/10 Fair

To sum it up I would not recommend for anyone to stay here.Very disappointed that the hotel did not have staff members who were fluent in both English and Spanish.This needs to be advertised correctly so individuals such as myself can pick better suited resorts.This was the first vacation where me and my daughter looked forward to returning home.Colombia was miraculous but the resort was unsatisfactory and below the caliber of places we would usually stay.I have traveled all around the world being retired military and by far this resort was the WORST!!!Every day we had to deal with disrespectful looks and stares.My daughter felt uncomfortable and wanted to leave even though we came for her 15th birthday.The Wi-Fi only worked inside the room.The hotel room service translation stated it would cost $50 USD for anything ordered to our room even if it was just a glass of water. That is preposterous.All the bartenders, concierge, and gentleman from kitchen who spoke english were phenomenal.They always made us feel appreciated.The hotel had no atm and no way to exchange USD to Colombian money.No hot water most of the days.It would turn warm then back cold.Four days in a row I asked housekeeping for face towels but we never received them.The fourth time I asked I could hear them in the next room and translated them to saying I kept asking but they were not going to bring it then laughing.They had so many dogs everywhere while eating.Very unsanitary.My daughter is allergeric to dogs.

This hotel is very nice the only thing that was a downside was there should be an ATM on the premise it was difficult always trying to find an area to exchange money since we were far from the downtown.

8/10 Very good

I liked how nice the staff were. I also liked how pretty and clean everything was. The resort itself was beautiful and kept very clean. I didn't like the limited selection of alcohol. I was surprised that they didn't have any whisky or name brand tequila. I was also surprised for a high end resort the lack of english they spoke. A huge plus would have been if they had a hot tub. Great stay overall.
