Truly amazing and left so happy

Posted Mar 30, 2014 on Hotels
My girlfriend and I stayed initially for 3 nights, however we extended and were very sad to leave after 5. I felt as though I could stay here forever! We truly loved the staff and Brian one of the owners went above and beyond to make our stay as welcoming and comfortable as possible. I truly loved listening to Brian's life story's every morning at breakfast.. This man has achieved so much! Also I have never felt so happy and comfortable in a hotel, we were made to feel as part of the family. Thank you everyone who made our stay so great. The rooms are spacious and very clean. We had clean towels every day and clean bed linen every 2. Brian explained the state of the hotel when he to it over and we can see the excellent progress he has made and are excited to see the future developments he has planned. Ultimately Brian explained he would like to be known for having the best breakfast in Cartagena.. We'll after 6 months on the road across the Americas I can safely say their breakfast if the best of our trip.. Everyday a new different delight and don't be shy to ask for more as Brian and his team won't be shy to give you more on your plate. The pancakes and the home made syrup are the best I have ever eaten.. Thanks again everyone and hope to return in the near future!!

Wonderful time at a wonderful hotel!!!!

This hotel in my opinion was great for the price I paid. Matter of fact every time I go back to this part of Colombia I will be staying at this hotel all the time. I love that it is by the beach and the staff was wonderful. It is in a wonderful location walking distant to everything you are looking for. The internet service in the hotel was great it was very fast. My stay was wonderful and would refer other people who are visiting this part of Colombia stay at this hotel you want go wrong!!

Pros: Right next to the beach; friendly staff; information packet I received upon arrival
Cons: Beds that are less hard; better signage out front (easier to see from a taxi)
I stayed in a private ensuite room, with a/c and a television. The decor was very nice (bright Caribbean colors) and there were enough outlets to charge all of my electronics. The barthroom was generously sized, with plenty of space for my toiletries. The water pressure in the shower was quite strong (which I like), though the water was not terribly hot. Please note: you will be hard pressed to find a very hot shower in Cartagena - no matter where you stay. I prefer steaming hot showers, but I found the water temperature at the Pueblito (and the other hotels I stayed at in Cartagena) adequate. At no point was I shivering, nor did I feel the need to rush out of the shower because I was cold. Besides, as hot as it is in Cartagena, you're unlikely to want a super hot shower anyway. I am writing this not as a complaint about the Pueblito Playa, but only so that others are aware of the water temp before going to Cartagena. The bed was a bit hard for my taste, but it didn't stop me from having a good night's sleep. The sheets were clean, as was the rest of the room and the bathroom. The staff were incredibly friendly and happy to help in anyway that they could. I didn't have much to ask about, but they were open and friendly and spoke very good English. One thing to note is that the hotel is located on the 3rd floor of a building on the right side of Avenida San Martin between Cll 5 and 4. From a taxi, it was a little difficult to locate.

The room was good except for the small, sketchy bathroom. Very friendly, helpful staff.
