Cartagena apartment description

Enjoy a newly built apartment and your own private rooftop terrace with beautiful ocean views fanned by the Caribbean breeze. Ideally located in the heart of the historic old city within the walls that once surrounded a Viceroy's compound. You will be enchanted by the splendor of the sea and the charm of the colonial streets full of magic and color. The owners have 20 years experience in the hospitality industry and know how to provide the comfort you deserve.

The complex has two swimming pools, one just for adults and another for the children, a fitness room, two indoor Saunas and three Jacuzzis with one located on a shared terrace with sea and sunset views. The tropical gardens are cool and relaxing with the peaceful sound of falling water.

La Casa del Virrey Eslava is one of Cartagena?s most significant historical sites and has retained it?s 17th century colonial facade.
