Recent Cartagena reviews
Very comfy apartment
"Our family of 4 (kids 10 and 4) had a very enjoyable 5 nights here. Aracely is super responsive and the location was great. The laundry service in the building is very inexpensive and fast! The hot showers are a real plus. The place met our needs and we would stay here again if we were to return to Cartagena."

"We stayed three nights. The apartment is on the second floor and has a beautiful beach front view. It also have a good view of the swimming pool. They have security there and felt pretty safe. It is not to far from down town and the taxi cost about 12000 Colombian pesos about 5 US dollars. The pool life guard was able to hook us up with a tour of the Cuidad Amurallada, El Castillo San Felipe and other main attractions at a cheap rate. The apartment was very clean and everything was up to date and very modernly arranged. We had Direct TV and WiFi. The apartment was very luxurious and comfortable and would love to stay there again on our next visit to Cartagena. Our stay there was definitely worth every penny. Christian was attentive, polite and always answered my emails in an orderly and timely fashion. Iraida the housekeeper was fantastic and was a great cook. I will definitely recommend this apartment."

"Words cannot describe how amazing the property and experience was for us. Here are a few highlights for those thinking about booking:
-Greg (the property owner) was incredibly responsive from the moment we first inquired about our travel dates. He is always available to answer questions about the property and Cartagena.
-Fany (the property manager in Cartagena) was also just outstanding. Fany picked us up from the airport and took us to the property. She also pointed out different sites in Cartagena along the way. Once we got there she showed us around and introduced us to Jorge (on-site property manager) and Billie (chef). Fany had great suggestions from things to do to places to eat. She also heard that were celebrating a birthday on the trip so she went out of her way to get a cake and bring it back. She was truly wonderful!
-Jorge (on-site property manager) is one of the kindest, most genuine people you will meet. He made us feel right at home and was there to answer any questions we had. He is also so thoughtful. When one of us commented on how much we liked the hot sauce at the house he ran out and purchased 2 bottles to take home. It was great to have him with us during our stay.
-Billie's food is to die for. All of our meals were restaurant quality amazing and the fresh juices she prepared with each meal were delicious! We will be thinking about her food for years to come. If you are on the fence about hiring her - do it! You will not regret it!
-The property itself is even better than the pictures. It is centrally located near everything - from shops to the ocean to restaurants (Crepes & Waffles is literally just downstairs) - it has it all. The streets are also bustling with people at all hours - you will always feel safe. Our favorite part of the house was the top level. In addition to a great area to lounge/relax, there are balconies on both sides of the top level which have amazing views.
-The city is also beautiful and a great place to vacation (we wish we would have had a few more days to explore). Given our short stay we chose to do a sightseeing tour on a Chiva bus (arranged by Jorge) and that was great. In addition to learning more about Cartagena, it also stopped at the key sites and allowed us time to walk around. Very efficient way to see the city! We ate at La Vitrola for the birthday celebration dinner (recommended by Jorge and Fany) and it was outstanding.
Overall an amazing trip and much much better than a hotel!!!"
