The hotel was in a great spot if you want to be in Bocagrande. The room and pool were exactly what we wanted. I had read that most hotel staff in Cartagena spoke English- I think based on our experience, this really pertains to the walled city. Most staff at this establishment knew a little English but were quite happy to use Google Translate with us when needed. We did have a poor experience with a pool staff member - he appeared annoyed when we didn’t understand him and was not receptive to our attempts. But otherwise, our stay was overall great. I would recommend this hotel :)

Ok place but not great. The beach across from the property is not a beach but a construction site. Lots of construction and noise in the morning but the breakfast is pretty good most days.
