The hotel is simply great. The beach is on one side and on the other side there are lots of shops, restaurants. The stuffs were really nice. Complementary breakfast was good. The hotel front desk informed me about all the tours within Cartagena and gave me a list with cost chart. If you want to go to Rosario island or...

The key thing for me about this hotel is that it is ideally situated on the beach, close to all hotels, bars, shops and restaurants in Bocagrande and is one of the least expensive hotels in the area. The rooms are small but clean and air-conditioned and are pretty much what you would expect for the price. I liked the...

Positive: Great location. you just have to cross the street to go to the beach. The hotel is in front of a supermarket. There are drugstores near the hotel, a shopping center and a lot of restaurants around. You can take taxi or bus to go to the old citadel. The hotel is nice, tidy. All the workers are extremely...

Negatives: constant logging in for wifi, no aircon in lobby/breakfast area, limited breakfast (not buffet) often run out of fruit/meat from 8.30 onwards, hotel dated and some small improvements could go a long way (shower heads, knobs, tiles), hotel next door building huge...

The hotel was great, especially for the price - love the breakfast and the super easy beach access. The front desk and staff are very friendly. An important note: ask for a room on one of the top floors. The lower floors are dark and a bit dingy. The difference between the floors will make or break your visit, in...

The hotel was a attractive since we needed to book quickly and the reviews were pretty good. At $US120 double occupancy with breakfast included, it was fine. Positives: the quiet A/C worked fine and kept us cool all day and night! The rooms are clean! The staff was friendly and helpful, and hey, that's important! On the other hand, the...

The food is plain and there are not a lot of options. The rooms are not really made for 5 people, it feels like boarding school. There is not even hot water for taking a shower and the staff is completely incompetent and unable to fix it, even though we called a couple of times before. There arent enough towels...

I spent three nights at the end of May at the Hotel Playa. The rooms were simple, but clean. House keeping did a good job cleaning. There is air conditioning; however, be sure to keep the bathroom door shut as there are no windows in the bathroom rather openings in the bricks. The buffet was decent, very limited for vegetarian...

I like the location, at the end of Bocagrande near Hotel Caribe. Main reception staff and helpful and friendly. It has an enticing pool, in the photos. Reality is the view to the beach just across the road is blocked by a cheap black mesh material covering the fence and you can only swim 9am to 6pm. The whole pool...

“Definitely ask for a room on one of the top floors. Ideally get a room with an Ocean View if possible (although I believe there are only two rooms in the hotel with Ocean View).”
