Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent a week (Dec. 29th - Jan. 5th), at this wonderful apartment. There were 8 of us, 5 adults and 3 little kids. We were gladly surprised to see that the apartment is exactly the way it is portrayed in pictures. We have had previous disappointments with other places, but this one is truly luxury.

The place is well kept, overall very clean and nicely decorated. The view is great, as is the location. It was a very short cab ride to go to the supermarket, and the walled city is not too far away either. There was a girl named Kelly, who was in charge of giving us the apartment. She was super nice, and recommended another very nice lady (Aida, in case you want some help), who helped us keep the apartment clean and cooked for us... It was nice not having to do anything during the vacation :)

Very bad experience

  • 1 of 5

The maintenance on the place is horrible to the point that we did not had hot water for more then two days some of the air conditions dripping water all over the place and stop working .

Numerous calls to the owner and was not fixed.

We pay more than average to get A luxury place and we were so disappointed .

Owner's Response: I appreciate every guest’s opinion as it helps us improve our service. But at the same time I find it very suspicious that the review is the complete reversal of the favorable reviews we have received in the past. The guest seems to be fixated on the price of the apartment. The apartment is a very large family style 1850 sq Ft Apartment situated in the Caribbean Beach area of Cartagena. Our prices are very reasonable generally below $200.00 USD a night. Pricing at a Hotel Room in the area for 20% of the size is almost the same price. As far as the maintaince we took care of all issues and concerns right away as we are required by law. The guest is exaggerating to prove his point so he could get a large discount. The guest even tried to reverse the charge with the Bank but the they refused as the guest had completed his stay and we were within abiding by the guidelines set out by the Minister Of Tourism.In Conclusion this review is without merit and is a Vendetta against us to damage our reputation.

This property was amazing and matched description

  • 5 of 5

¡Esta propiedad estuvo increíble! Estaba limpia, era muy espaciosa y cómoda. Se corresponde con la descripción y las fotos. Tiene muy buen mantenimiento. La vista es espectacular y el departamento tiene todo lo que podrías necesitar o desear. Cada habitación tiene 2 camas individuales (o 1 king) y las camas son cómodas. Está a una cuadra de la playa. Hay un supermercado y varios restaurantes cruzando la calle. Excelente ubicación. El agente inmobiliario brindó una comunicación buena y clara. Definitivamente, recomendaría este departamento a cualquier persona y me encantaría volver a hospedarme aquí la próxima vez que venga. Está a pocos minutos en taxi de la parte histórica y a una cuadra de hermosas playas. No tengo queja alguna. Fue un lugar maravilloso donde quedarse.

Perfect experience

  • 5 of 5

Me había hospedado en este edificio antes, así que sabía que se encontraba en un área que me gustaba: tranquila, con restaurantes locales, cerca de la playa y a pocos minutos en taxi de la parte histórica de la ciudad. El balcón es maravilloso: 4 sillas y hermosas vistas de todo. El departamento era justo como se describe. La lavadora y la secadora son modernas; el aire acondicionado funcionaba bien y me pareció que era muy fácil mantener limpio el lugar. También, en lugar de una llave, te dan un código para la puerta principal que permite que las personas entren y salgan en distintos momentos. Sin embargo, mi parte favorita fue el trato con los dueños. Siempre me respondieron de inmediato. Fueron muy accesibles con nuestra situación respecto a los horarios de registro y salida. Pagué todo por Paypal y eso hizo que la experiencia fuera perfecta. Definitivamente, volvería a hospedarme aquí otra vez.

Gorgeous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

¡El departamento estuvo excelente! Había todo tipo de cosas que puedes necesitar para unas vacaciones. La vista desde el balcón era increíble. Todas las habitaciones, cómodas y limpias. El dueño del departamento estuvo siempre dispuesto a responder cualquier pregunta. El edificio era nuevo, y la ubicación, magnífica, cerca de la avenida principal y de la parte histórica. Había también una hermosa playa cerca del departamento. En verdad, recomiendo ese departamento a todos los que están buscando un lugar en Cartagena. :) Huéspedes de Estonia

Nice but needs improvements

  • 3 of 5

Mi marido y yo estábamos viajando por Colombia y ésta fue una de nuestras paradas. Déjenme comenzar diciendo que el departamento en sí fue la mejor parte. Es un departamento hermoso, lujoso, espacioso con vistas asombrosas a la playa, al lago y a la ciudad. MUY DESLUMBRANTE. Las camas y los muebles eran muy cómodos y había mucha cantidad de agua caliente. Había aire acondicionado en cada habitación, así que teniendo en cuenta el calor, esto fue una gran ventaja. Sin embargo, el edificio del "gimnasio" necesita bastantes mejoras. Si son personas activas como nosotros, esto es MUY importante. Las cintas no funcionaban y había pesos limitados. El personal de la recepción no era amistoso. Ni tampoco lo eran las personas de la zona. Sólo cuando querían que compres. El restaurante de enfrente "El Riquísimo" era genial con comida increíble todo el tiempo. La mayor parte del personal del restaurante era bueno y la comida excepcional si les gustan los mariscos y el pescado como a nosotros. Muy barato. Volviendo al tema del departamento. No había copas de vino disponibles así que tuvimos que tomar vino en vasos de leche normales (no muy elegante o romántico) pero sirvieron. Nos registramos con 3 horas de retraso porque el departamento no estaba listo pero el personal administrativo fue muy servicial y amable y nos permitió dejar nuestras maletas hasta que estuvo listo. Había una cantidad limitada de toallas. En la zona de la piscina podría haber algunas sombrillas para la sombra. La antigua ciudad histórica era realmente fascinante e interesante pero con calles realmente llenas de gente y angostas durante el día. ¿Mencioné el calor? Durante la noche, la antigua ciudad está literalmente llena de acción. Nosotros recomendamos altamente el "Club Havana" ofrece una música excelente, con volumen alto, en vivo que garantiza que pases toda la noche bailando. Visiten el centro de la ciudad luego de las 10:30-11:30p.m. o va a estar un poco vacío. Las Islas del Rosario fueron hermosas como lo fue BARÚ. Aguas cristalinas ideal para buceo y esnórquel. Pero un consejo: Asegúrense de establecer un precio fijo ANTES de ir. De lo contrario los pueden estafar. Además, paguen luego del servicio. "No le paguen al barquero hasta que los lleve del otro lado" por así decirlo. Hicimos una estupenda recolección de algunas conchas marinas en una de las pequeñas islas en nuestro camino de regreso de las Islas del Rosario. Aunque las playas locales no son cristalinas como las de Rosario. Hay mucha seguridad con la policía local y los militares en toda Colombia en general y las cosas han mejorado mucho en los últimos 5 años desde la última vez que estuve, así que esto también es una ventaja. Sin embargo, NUNCA bajen la guardia ya que un criminal siempre busca los puntos débiles y una oportunidad u objetivo fácil, sobre todo en las multitudes.

Owner's Response: We are serious about reviews and traveler related experiences. We really appreciate you posted a POSITIVE comment about the apartment itself; however, you seemed to be quite unhappy about the fact that at the time of your stay there were some issues with the treadmills, and the fact that there were limited weights at the gym. Unfortunately this type of things can happen even at the most sophisticated fitness centers in any part of the world. The positive thing is that they were repaired. The front desk personnel have also been replaced and a new company is now in charge. All travelers can also find all kinds of wine glasses in the apartment and if for some reason our guests need something during their stay, the Property Manager is always ready to provide and fulfill our customers' needs.
