The hotel is nice, great value for the money. The only draw back is that the hotel does not offer hot water for bathing. one staff member said it's hot in Cartagena, people don't mind cold showers. All but me, but still had a nice stay.
love hot shower, Baltimore Maryland

The staff is incredibly friendly and efficient. Everyone is always smiling and making sure your stay in Cartagena is pleasant. Lourdes helped me book my tour to Islas del Rosario and gave me recommendations for what to do there. Later on I had the chance to stay at a 5 star hotel and I wanted to run back to San Martin. There was no point if comparison. When I come back to Cartagena I'll stay at this hotel again. Perfect location just 1 block from the beach and right next to great restaurants.

"Deserves a higher star rating. It exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Hotel Playa Club."
This hotel is located on the best part of the beach. Their service is outstanding. The owners (Dominique, Alfonso, and Ramon) oversee every detail of the hotel operations. They courteously introduced themselves at the dining room and asked personally how everything was. Where do you get that level of service these days? One of the waitresses (Eneida) noticed one day we were running late for breakfast being served downstairs and offered to bring breakfast up to our room. Expedia.com describes "5 Stars" as a place where the employees anticipate your needs; well, there you have it. You don't have to go to an over-the-top luxurious hotel to receive personalized service. One of the owners personally oversees the food preparation. I highly recommend their "Playa Club - Fish Fillet" as well as their authentic coconut rice; yes, this hotel has great food at an excellent price. I just left Cartagena and I already want to return. Tell them Jorge from Chicago sent you. You will see for yourself what I mean. Best of luck.

"Hotel is very pleasant with a very friendly staff,"
We were at the hotel in early May, which is a fairly slow time. The hotel is quite attractive in an excellent location for restaurants, etc. Not far from the beach. They seemed to be well staffed. Only hesitation is that most staff have very limited English skills. So, like most of Colombia, be prepared with at least a few Spanish phrases.

Colombians would rate this hotel a three B, bueno, bonito, and barato (good, pretty, and cheap). I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff was super friendly. The location is excellent. It is one block from the beach. There are many restaurants in the area. You cannot beat the price for the Boca Grande area. A word of caution: no one speaks English, in the hotel or in the nearby area.
