I just got back from a stay at this property. The hotel es well located in the area of Bocagrande, just across from the beach. My stay here was pleasant. We got there on an early flight and were told that check-in was at 3pm, but we could choose to pay early check-in for about 20USD per person. We decided...

Everything was good, except that we were handicapped by the fact that staff spoke very little of English and the services we wanted got very limited of them. In the world of globalization good communication in one common language is very important. However, staff were very courteous and helpful as much as they can. There was only one English channel...

The hotel, like most in Cartagena, is on Bocagrande, a COP7,000 (about US$2.35) cab ride from the old town. The Cartagena Plaza's lobby is quite glitzy, but the hallways and our room were beginning to show signs of wear are tear....

Our rooms were very nice, on the executive floor, very clean and comfortable. Our attendants were excellent, providing us with great, personal attention! We traveled with my elderly parents, so it was nice to have them personally looked after by Alfredo and Rodolfo!
