"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.

Had a lovely stay at Hotel Dann, Cartagena. We arrived early and were able to check into our room with no problem. The hotel is clean and the breakfast service was great. The staff was friendly and the pool was refreshing. We would stay there again.

"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.

i needed one night after an event at the Hilton, without breaking the bank, with a good swimming pool and a touch more local feel than the Hilton, and ideally within walking. It scored tops on all these. Only odd thing was other reviewers raved about breakfast, while I could hardly see mine due not traveling with a microscope.

This hotel is located on the beach in Bocagrande which for Americans is like the Rodeo Drive of Beverly Hills or the Madison Avenue of New York City or the Barclay Center of Fourth Avenue Brooklyn NY. It has everything Salsa lessons, beach service, heated pool, excellent staff and wonderful clientele. My family and I met the who's who of South America while enjoying our ten day vacation. The Buffet Breakfast is a 3 hour unforgettable healthy feast for the senses. We felt like we were at a private health spa. It was absolutely SAFE. No worries in Bocagrande. There was live music nightly in the Hotel's club and three casinos in walking distance. I hope to return soon. There are local street vendors that sell fresh water pearls for $15.00 a strand. It is perfect for families, honeymooners, bachelorette and bachelor parties. The weather is tropical and sunny.
