The Ananda hotel by far exceeded our expectations! Zero issues with this place! We stayed in 303 and it was perfect, as the rooftop was just a few steps away and a lovely secret patio outside our door. The staff are extremely friendly and knew us by name by the end of the trip. We chose to have the hotel pick us up from the airport, which was done seamlessly and easy to book through email, prior to coming. I do recommend learning a little bit of Spanish before arriving but overall we had no issues communicating with everyone. The hotel is stunning on it own, with 2 pools (which weren’t that crowded, but I do recommend getting to the lower pool by 1pm if you’re travelling with more than 4 ppl). The rooftop is nice to relax on the daybeds and you can see the ocean by the upper patio. Hands down best cocktails we’ve ever had and that’s not an exaggeration! The hotel breakfast is very good, if you read other comments suggesting otherwise, I recommend you ignore that. We also had dinner here on our first night and the food was very good! I wish we could have taken the bikes out, But if you do, I recommend waking up very early to do so, as traffic gets a little hectic later on in the day. I will definitely be back to Cartagena and most definitely stay here again! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I stayed at Ananda for 5 nights during my visit to Cartagena. I LOVED the attention from the staff, we received a warm welcome and everyone at the hotel was so polite. My requests were fulfilled immediately without hesitation. The food at the restaurant was amazing and the free gourmet breakfast was a PLUS! The pool and jacuzzi were perfect and the best thing is that it was available all day.

I love this boutique hotel. Will definitely stay there if we come back to Cartagena. Friendly, accommodating staff. Beautiful room. Variety of breakfast food included with your hotel rate was great. Twice they fixed our breakfast to go so we could take on our tour or on our way back to airport. Internet didnt work in room for 2 days but could access in lobby. Hot shower and comfy bed. Rooftop jacuzzi, lounge area was really nice.

Want to like it, but the noise killed it
We really wanted to like this hotel. The location is perfect, it is clean, elegant, the staff is excellent and very helpful but one thing just ruined our stay there. It was way too loud, which was due to a couple things. The doors close fully though there is a little slip that is open to the outside. The bathroom window does not cover the entire window opening. These allows a lot of outside noise to get in. We were on the third floor with a outside hallway that overlooked the lower level inner courtyard pool. If people are being loud in the pool we heard everything. We had the unfortunate experience to be at the hotel at the same time as two large families with 5 young kids. The children screamed and jumped endlessly in the pool, unsupervised, from 8a to 10p+. They woke us up multiple times. We were desperate to get rest but could not do so. We complained to the hotel and they did speak with the families, to no avail. We were told this was not the Ananda way and that usually it is quiet, however they did not do anything to really fix the issue. They did not offer to move our room etc, though they ended taking 100,000 pesos off our massage. We do have to say that the service was excellent, friendly, and helpful but the noise was horrible. We got a couples massage, which was ok for him, and terrible for her.Overall we wanted to like this hotel but the noise killed it.

This is a very nice property and the ambience and decor are great. There are several problems though-- the walls are very thin in the rooms and you can hear your neighbors conversations, and noise outside. Also, there is not hot water in the showers, only barely lukewarm water. When I asked the front desk about that, they sent some guy over who didn't speak English and who didn't do anything to help. Everyone else had the same problem. Also, you can't flush toilet paper, and the service at the bar is extremely slow. Often times there is nobody even at the bar when you want to order something. They have a long and confusing system to tally up your bill and it gets easily confused. The breakfast doesn't have a large selection or buffet like many other hotels do (you need to pay extra for bacon). So for the price you pay, I'm not sure I'd recommend this place. Most of these things are easily fixable if the managers are interested in improving this hotel.
