    One of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed. Great breakfasts, comfortable room, beautiful surroundings, and a staff and owner who go out of your way to provide the best Cartagena experience, including booking activities, guides, and even procuring medicine. We’ll be back!

    This property was amazing and staff was also. It is in a great location inside the wall and is in a quiet section at night. Me and my wife experienced one of our best vacations here and can’t wait to go back with friends.

    Great house and service - good enough location

    I enjoyed my stay at El Candil - its a very well-kept house with nice traditional decor, a beautiful courtyard pool and garden, and a great outdoor lounge/dining area. The service and breakfast were wonderful. WiFi was not reliable but I wasn't too bothered by that. Only downside about the house is that it's across the street from a night club -- Friday night wasn't terrible (I went to bed just fine at around 11:30pm) but Saturday night the music next door was on until 1-2am. This would've been great if I wasn't so tired and wanted to socialize (convenient location) but it could be irritating if you're trying to go to bed before midnight.
