  • Great location

    "Location was perfect - near beach (can actually see and hear the surf from the bedroom!), good restaurants walking distance, friendly people in area, easy to get a taxi to old town. Area of beach (to left walking out) that has a bunch of beach activities like jet skis, boats, wild ski board thing, water taxi to island, and restaurants on the water. Small convenience store right in building plus a larger one right across the street. 24x7 building security as well but thankfully didn't seem like an area that needed it. Room - very clean and bright with lots of windows and a sliding door allowing the ocean breeze in. Everything was in working condition and modern (ie, not someone's dumping ground for their old junk...new functioning stuff) including an Apple TV and WiFi that was pretty fast. We like cooking in sometimes and were able to do so with the full kitchen. There were only 3 of us staying for the week, but could easily see it comfortably accommodating more - especially with 2 full bathrooms. Also nice to have a washer there so you can pack less clothes and just do a load of laundry during the stay. Very relaxing area and calming stay for us - top floor so you don't hear the road noise and people chatter."

  • Very Good.

    "The owners were very prompt to answer us when we were booking our stay. They were kind and professional. The building staff was helpful and friendly. The laundry services at building were a great blessing. The swimming pool a life saver: we used it every day in the late afternoon to wear our three children (ages 5 to 8) out. The apartment is conveniently located: near but no in Bocagrande, getting around to the mayor attractions is not a problem. "El Laguito" is relatively quiet compared to other areas of the city, the beach is close by and is not as crowded as Bocagrande. The apartment is clean, tastefully well furnished. When we needed to extend our stay on short notice, the owners were understanding and flexible. This place was a blessing for us."

  • Great Spot

    "Great location within the city walls with spectacular view of the sea and within walking distance of all locations within the Old City. No need to go to Cafe del Mar, as this apartment has a better view! All in all, the apartment is as described and is tastefully furnished with all necessary appliances and beds. Be aware there is a winding 3 level staircase. Arrival went seamlessly with guard knowing our names and giving key, along with introduction to housekeeper. Payment via wire was somewhat of a hassle due to cross-border banking hiccups, but was no fault of the owner. Great location and spot!"

  • Nice Condo, you will not be disappointed!!!

    "The owner is an American fella who was easy to work with and had everything ready for us in advance. The view of the old city from the balcony was amazing especially at night. This condo has two great bedrooms with really comfortable beds and top notch linens. As a frequent traveler to Colombia I know how rare that is and it was truly appreciated. I was a bit leery at first about the Palmetto building because I had seen some of the other condos and heard some negative things about the water pressure and pool area but it was a complete non issue for us. The pool area was nice, clean and always had lots of people around enjoying the beautiful weather. If you want to stay in Bocagrande this condo is perfect. The beach is 50 feet outside the front lobby and there are many shops and restaurants directly behind the building. The old city is a 6 minute and $3 taxi ride away."
