Excellent facilities, very helpful staff, fantastic selection of buffet breakfast dishes. Good location away from the old town but only 6,000 pesos to get into the centre by taxi. 18,000 pesos in taxi from airport.

We stayed in this hotel with our daughter and her new Colombian husband following their wedding on our first visit every to Colombia. We took a long time choosing a hotel as it was such an important occasion. It did not disappoint. The rooms were excellent, the staff were friendly, the food was lovely. There is a private beach with sunshades and chairs for free (sunbeds extra) and towels for the pool and beach are free. The sunbeds by the pool are free.
It is close enough to the shops and restaurants in Bocagrande to walk to them (10 mins) and it is just a short taxi ride to the centre and the old walled town which is well worth a visit in the day for its historical interest and in the evening for a wide range of eateries to suit all pockets. We had been warned that Colombia could be a dangerous place but were travelling with a Colombian. However, the hotel has private security who are present but discreet, helping to make guests feel welcome and secure. Highly recommended.

"Excellent choice if you like an all inclusive hotel"
We really enjoyed our stay, the staff are very welcoming and helpful at anything being asked. The entertainment provided and daily events surrounding the pool area are excellent, don't miss out on this free entertainment. The only thing that we disliked was the constant pressure of re-booking the hotel for future stays, but they will leave you alone if you respectfully tell them to do so.

"Where I will be staying in Cartagena in the future"
Prone to profound laziness, I rarely take time to reflect on places I have stayed, but the staff and room at the Regatta were so wonderful I just have to pass this along. We (myself, wife and newborn baby) couldn't have asked for a more pleasant or satisfying stay in a great city where people do their utmost to promote not only their hotel, but the city, and country, as well. The rooms are converted apartments, and so are very spacious and comfortable, each with its own unique design, and tons of closet space. The beach is directly out front of the hotel, and towel service is provided, although you need to rent chairs and an umbrella ($12-15 all day) if you desire. The location is perfect, easy walking distance to anything you may need (shopping, food), but for me the staff/maintenance's sincerely pleasant, "we will help with whatever " attitude were a most welcome and pleasant part of a spectacular place to stay. Great price, great service, good buffet (simple, but plentiful with great fruit), make this the place I will be staying in Cartagena in the future.

The hotel was perfectly located. I say perfectly because we were just seconds away from restaurants, souvenir shops, shopping, currency exchange, etc. It's located on a busy street so cabs are constantly passing by...super cheap, by the way; a cab ride to the Walled city (La Ciudad Amurallada) was only about 4-5 pesos ($2-3 dollars). The beach was also only 2 blocks away. The hotel serves a free hot breakfast; a mix of American styled buffet foods and traditional Colombian breakfast foods. The staff was also very attentive and friendly. The only problem we had was that the water was not hot but lukewarm, but I feel this was simply a recurring theme everywhere we went in the country. Overall it was a great and relaxing experience! I would definitely come back again.
