Absolutely stunning !

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked in we just could not be leave how buetifull , place looked brand new, just recently painted .the views on both sides of apartment are incredible, The king beds were so comfy and luxury linens. Absolutely the best place in Cartagena! . I do not give credit unless it is earned and deserved! I had the pleasure of renting this Modern penthouse. The Penthouse is as depicted absolutely incredible. The place was meticulous, impeccable, and beyond clean. The owner pays attention to every detail. The airport only 5 minutes away and the old city 2 minutes form building. There is a grocery store only one block away and a bar inside the ibis hotel on the corner . The security guard in this building is attentive and awake 24/7. You can pay more for a place or less for a place but no matter what you pay you will never beat this place. This is the best presidential suite you can ever find. II will return again to Cartagena and when I do I will absolutely stay here again. In fact even if I had to adjust my flight schedule due to occupancy of this apartment, I would make the adjustment. I am an international landlord and I have to give this apartment and its owner a 20 in a 1 to 10 score. Book this apartment and you are going to have the best trip of your life. I have stayed in Apartments all over the world. This apartment is among the best I have ever stayed at. Good Luck on your trip and enjoy the splendor of Cartagena!

Thank you For sharing your place it

Was an amazing stay!

A mixed bag

  • 3 of 5

The positives the views are great and the bed is big and comfy.

The negatives ... The area is not good. It is not a safe established tourist area and one block away people are living in squalor. Much better areas exist. (Boca grande for example or the main beach area . Google morros epic for a safe high quality offering. We stayed there at a lower rate and much better holiday experience and safety level.)

The main room has a huge expanse of glass with no blinds or shades whatso ever. The room is uncomfortably hot and the two large aircon units need to be on all the time . Also its impossible to view tv only at night because of glare.

The third bedroom has lost all its shutters and sits completely open to the main room. The dishwasher doesnt work and hasnt for some time. The kitchen units are badly marked and sagging and the furniture in the downstairs bedroom is chipped and tired.

It needs a reinvestment from the owner .

Owner's Response: No offense intended but Here we have an ignorant review of someone that has no idea of the city. This building is located on the main beach and closest to the old city, other building mentioned is 3 miles east away from old city just beach area . Boca grande is a crowded an contaminated beach by sewer and gas and oil by ships entering the port. Traffic to get there an vendors on beach bothering you every 5 minutes. Our building area is the new residential with cleanest beaches with absolutly no squalor living on this beach area. There is a large lot fenced in that has been negotiated for a large shopping center and is guarded. The building faces north so we only get Direct sun light in June and July in the morning hours, until about 10:30 am. (Like our picture of living room shows) There is absolutely no need for shades and the A/C as mentioned has two large units that has always kept unit cool. I would never put shades or blinds as this is the best thing this condo offers the most spectacular view of Ocean and mountains. The carpenter we hired had just redone the shutters from 3rd bedroom but we did not put them in at the time of this rental so that it would not smell like paint. Client was notified and since it was only a couple so that room was not going to be used. Carpenter is also In the process of making the new kitchen cabnits and also new beds. We regret not having all this done in time but labor here in Colombia takes 3 times as long then in the states. Thank you for compliment of great view and large comfy beds! I urge you to read other reviews and inform your selfs of people that have stayed here for months and not by a person that stayed here 3 nights. Thank you Ignacio

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in this condo with my husband, two kids and parents. It was immaculate, close to the walled city and quite comfortable. The views were incredible as there are two large balconies to either view the city or the ocean. It was perfect for my parents that are a little older to have the bedroom downstairs since it's harder for them to walk up stairs.

Amalfi, the housekeeper was also very sweet and helpful. I could have stayed here longer and would recommend this beautiful property to everyone.

Beautiful condo, Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We were five women who rented this condo for a month in February 2017. It is a beautiful 2-story penthouse across the street from the ocean. It is perfectly located as it is close to the old walled city as well as the new city yet in a much quieter part of Cartagena. The condo is extremely clean and has all the amenities to make your stay very comfortable and pleasant. The balconies are quite large and offer a beautiful view of the ocean in front and of the city in the back. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly and having a phone line to call Canada was a big bonus. There is a little grocery store very close which was very handy. Almalfi who came over every day except Sunday is a very nice lady who is always willing to go the extra mile to be helpful. We very much appreciated everything she did for us. Overall, we were very pleased with the accommodation, location and security. The infinity pool, the whirlpools, steam room and sauna room were also great to have. The owner was very pleasant and quickly answered our questions. We would recommend this condo to friends and family.

Incredible views in all directions!

  • 4 of 5

While the location does not provide an easy walking distance to upscale restaurants and shops, we quickly found that catching a cab was quick and easy. We enjoyed staying slightly outside of the main tourist area and were glad we selected this location rather than in Boca Grande. My son loved the quick access to the local futbol field outback!

Great from afar but....

  • 3 of 5

Inside unit: the pictures make the place look incredible and while the view is quite nice, the interior has some issues. The beds were very hard and the furniture in general felt very cold... the couch is uncomfortable without any pillows or throws, there is no floor lighting anywhere so at night, everything feels really intense with blinding white lights everywhere. One shower was broken and only dripped water (the main floor bathroom) and the bathroom in the upstairs area had a crack in the wall so large you could see out of the building. Kind of scary. The hot tub takes about an hour and a half to fill and the jets work moderately well but it drains onto the floor which is slippery when wet out on the balcony. There were no hair dryers available which is mentioned in the listing, so we had to wait until the next day to ask the housekeeper to bring them the following day after that. In general, it just wasn't a place you really want to relax in.

Responsiveness from owner: Ignacio was very responsive, which I really appreciated. Random questions we had he was able to answer within an hour at most, usually.

Location: because the beaches are not great in most of Cartagena proper, you are going to want to go to a resort or beach club and buy a day pass anyway (or find your way to an island/boat for the day). There isn't really anything in this area and we basically just hopped in a cab every day to go the relatively short distance to the old city or to a beach outside the city. There isn't a walkable bar, restaurant, or large grocery story in the area (too far to carry much and at night, the area does not seem all that safe).

Pool and clubhouse: the pool and clubhouse was either closed or crowded every day. During the week, it closes at 7pm or 9pm, which means that you can't enjoy the hot tub at night or grill out, as we had planned. During the day, the pool does not get sun which makes it not that great at any time. The hot tub takes a couple of hours to really get hot, too, so you have to plan in advance.

Safety: the guard/doorman was very nice and had to lock and unlock the door each time we entered or left and opened the door for us each time. It felt safe inside as he had our names and got to know us throughout the week. There are two locks on the unit door. The area immediately outside the unit felt a little sketchy at night though it's likely just because there really isn't anything in the area. By day, it feels 100% safe.

Owner's Response: I am glad we have 52 / 5 star reviews that say completely the opposite of this review. (Including guest the week before you and after) I think the comfort in beds are a personal preference,, we have firm mattresses with memory pillow tops, witch I happen to love as many other guest. We are sorry that you did not like the modern furniture and no lamps or pillows on sofa, this is the modern and open feel we want to keep in our penthouse. (Nothing different then pics) We do have a grocery only one block away and bar / restaurant located inside the ibis hotel at the corner. You are correct this building is in a residential zone and all the noise / bars and restaurants are centrally located in the old center located 2 minutes away by taxi or 15 minute walk. We have this penthouse painted every 6 months and your crack statement is false, as well as the spa draining onto balcony. the spa has an internal drain into the main, of course that when you get out you will always bring some water out onto the balcony. I wish you would have said something about the shower as I would have fixed it imediatly . We take great pride in our place and would have hoped that you could have enjoyed as much as other guest have.
