“best arepa de huevo ever!!!”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

the hotel is very very nice, the renovated rooms are very comfortable and the rates are budget friendly.
most of the hotel is a vertical building so dont expect the space of a resort, the pool which is on the rook has an amazing view of all Bocagrande and since is it in the roof then there is always sun to tan.

the hotel is very centrally located near by restaurant, shops, and the beach; the food was great and had plenty of variety definetly the best "arepa de huevo" i have ever had in my life!

the beach is not private so if you looking for clear water, peace and calm this is not the hotel for you.

My wife and I began our honeymoon in cartagena staying in this excellent hotel that gave us a very pleasure stay in this marvellous city. The hotel surprised us in many ways: staff always polite and helpful, selection of atracttions such as live music at the top roof swimg pool with undescritble bay view and different options of drinks made by a barman at the bar, a lecture of cartagena`s history is always offered to guests and who does it is Juan David (dressed with tipical costume) who works in the hotel as a doorman. There`s a Health and Spa Center which offers different types of massage. We experienced two different sublime massage done by Mrs Dalis and Niris, including a magnificant and relaxing turkish bath and jacuzzi. Rooms are very big and with new furniture, mini bar, electronic safe, nice amenities and very good room services 24 hours. We recommend!!!

My wife and I returned from a week at the Capilla del Mar in Cartagena - a Sunquest Vacation. Here are some some comments from seasoned travelers -
1. The all inclusive hotel is not your typical "all inclusive" as you may have experienced before at another vacation spot. It is a regular hotel with all inclusive privileges. Your wrist band is your key to meals, drinks, and beach chairs (and drinks on the beach).
2. We had a non-upgraded room and it was fine. Spotless and well equipped with a fridge and balcony facing the sea. ***Warning - do not get a room on the 20th floor. The night club is on the 21st floor and we were lucky that during the week it closed early but on Saturday night it was open until 3am. We were up with the beats and tunes until closing. Get a lower floor.
3. The staff is excellent and cannot do more for you: rooms were spotless and clothes on the floor folded and placed on the bed, maintenance issues dealt with in minutes (read not hours), restaurant service great --- the place is well manged and service is excellent. Kudos to the entire crew: Mauro in the night club, Stephanie in the restaurant, Roberto on the beach, David at the hotel front ------ all terrific!
4. Food - the subject that makes or breaks a vacation - EXCELLENT. Two dining spots: floor 2 buffet and main floor restaurant. Limited choices but big portions and excellent quality and taste. Made the vacation fabulous. By the end of the trip was limiting but well prepared and very good. No snacks served during the day or at night. Only comment for improvement.
5. Beach is fine ---BEWARE numerous peddlers all day long. Word of advice - don't engage (read ignore) and they will leave you alone. They are pleasant but VERY VERY persistent.
***Disappointment - SUNQUEST VACATIONS - We were not told that Sunquest is represented by Gema Tours in Cartagena. We were not given literature upon arrival; missed the orientation as we did not know it was Gema, took 3 days for a returned call from a local rep (had to go through emailing Toronto). We did not have a clue about what was included in the restaurant (you order off the regular menu) and could not call a rep to find out. Trial and error. Sunquest is a well know operator but dropped the ball here.
6. Great value. Great hotel. Great people. Recommend Capilla Del Mar very much.

Room Tip: **Anything lower than the 20th floor

Room: I stayed in a refurbished room. The room was very clean and modern. Bathroom: the space for the shower is very tiny.
Hotel: The breakfast is great, with several options of fruits, juices, breads and eggs. The swimming pool stays in the last floor. it is small but it is comfortable. The beach in front of the hotel is not a Caribbean beach but it is always full of people.
Location: The hotel is located in Bocagrande, near to several restaurants, just 5-10 min of walk distance. The historic city is 30 minutes walking from hotel. But by taxi is just 5 minutes and costs 6,000 Colombian pesos.

Reviewed 29 February 2012

The rooms are large, but dated. (I'm sure the updated rooms are nice, though.) The rooftop pool is very nice and provides views in almost all directions. The hotel is close to restaurants and other amenities but there is construction right next to the hotel, so that can be a bit loud. The buffet breakfast had a wide variety of foods, but nothing was exceptionally yummy. For similar money and a better beach and hotel grounds, go to the Hilton.

Room Tip: Get the renovated rooms.
