Fair 4.0
I will think about it for a second stay
For earlier check in of 1 hour prior to the normal time I was going to be charge, for a luxury hotel this is not acceptable, I have stayed in different international hotel chains and never had that even at independent brands, also I asked for a drink that includes with salt around the glass and I got charged for the salt without being informed it was extra charge. Is not about the amount charged but about the situation.

4 Star Hotel
Stay was very good. Very attractive hotel and room was very nice and well appointed...only caveat on room was that housekeeping was somewhat erratic: towels, soap and paper products were hit and miss with calls to housekeeping needed to replenish as housekeeper never seemed to grasp the idea of simply having these things in the room; some days only one towel, other days no toilet paper, other days no glasses, other days no soap! (Yes, we were there a while - 8 days). Housekeeping was good at getting what we were missing but inconvenient to always have to be calling for what should just be done each day. Pool area quite nice and also very busy. View from SkyBar well worth going up to. Staff overall quite pleasant. Wifi very good and breakfast had very good variety. The only 'not so great' thing is the location...a little away from most everything but taxis are cheap! Great grocery store with Bank of Colombia ATM in it just across the street.

Hotel review 2020 feb
All good, location great in front of beach and next to mall/grocery market. Great security and 20 min safe walk to old city/Getsemani. Big pool and decent gym. Room privacy could be better as could hear other room and on 48th floor hear music from sky lounge but not that loud, no street noise. Elevators very efficient. Staff were courteous and friendly. Dishes had odor, dont know if Cartagena thing or hotel. TV mostly spanish, internet was fast. Have secure taxi service for guest and had no issues using.

Good 6.0
I felt like I was in jail because the employees there watched every move you make and I felt very uncomfortable. I travel a lot and I’ve never experienced this type of people. I will not be returning to this hotel.
