A really good location at the beach and at the same time only a short drive to the old part of Cartagena. There is even a hop-on hop-off bus that stops right outside the hotel and that will take you to all the most important sites for 40,000 pesos and valid for 48 hours.
There are many nice activities in and around the hotel, for example the casino to which we received a voucher when we checked in.
Many of the reviews we saw before coming pointed out that the hotel is rather and this is correct. It could benefit from some renovation here and there and especially the furniture could preferably be replaced with something new.
By the way the pool is not as big as it looks on the pictures.
If you plan for a stay where you mainly intend to relax at the beach you will be better off booking a hotel in La Boquilla as the beach in Bocagrande is crowded with vendors who will be annoying you every two minutes.
