New years in Cartagena

I loved the hotel Cartagena was the my favorite time of 2 weeks on the coast. The food was always fresh and tasty and the service personnel were the most friendly of anywhere i have been in Colombia. As of most hotels in Colombia there is limited English speakers. I highly recommend the hotel and be sure to take the transfer for the day to trip to Baru or better spend some of the time at the baru decameron resort for good beaches and swimming and all kinds of water sports

Check in nightmare

I want to start saying that the people that work at the restaurants, the tour services, the bell hopes are amazing. They have great costumer service and are very friendly and helpful.We have been at other Decamerons and we love them. However Decameron Cartagena let us down. The check in process is messy and disorganized. You get to fill up a bunch of forms with the information you had already provided when making the reservation. Then you have to wait anywhere from 1 hour to 2 hours for them to give you the keys to the room. Then you have to go an get cards for the pool towels and even an extra line for the room safe key. They gave us a small room even though a double occupancy room was requested. The toilet was clogged. We requested a room change. They told us it was not possible until the next day. When we got the new room, the air conditioner was not working, the bathroom was leaking and the manager was not available. Normally Decameron hotels are a great place to stay but we will never stay on this Decameron ever again. Another thing. Most Decamerons offer buffet dinner on top of reservations to the specialty restaurants. This one does not. So make sure you reserve your dinner on time or you will be hungry, even though it is supposed to be an all inclusive resort.

Awesome as always

I love all Decameron hotels and finally after 4 years I did manage to go there for holidays with family. despite some people complaints that I have been reading in this page I have to say customer service was really good they treat you with kindness all the times. it's hard to say that this is an 3 stars hotel because it is all inclusive and the food is amazing. I have enjoyed every single day there and I hope I can come back more often. about the beach atmosphere (Cartagena atmosphere) talking about people selling stuff men you just have to get used it to because you are in a city that have the highest corruption numbers and people just have to manage to live every day. so be kind and think that they are just working also make sure you ask to native people ( hotel staff members) how much you should be charge for stuff and taxi rates. after that everything should be fine! enjoy!

Buenos recuerdos

It's a clean hotel with good food and is close to the beach. You have to make a reservation for dinner, but this is very easy. There is also an option to eat at a restaurant in the city and they will drive you there. It is an all-inclusive hotel that makes it simple and you don't have to worry about paying for drinks and meals separately. The hotel room is simple, has air conditioning and a small safe for valuables.
