I work in Washington DC. While visiting Cartagena two years ago I fell in love with this amazing city, the people the food, and he weather. I continued visiting Cartagena until I finally decided to buy my own place to enjoy the city on a regular basis and share the experiences with friends and family.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Owner chose El Laguito
Cartagena is the most iconinc city in Colombian. Its old city is a magical place that captivate all who visit this historic place. The city is home to some of the best restaurants, bars and lounges in the country, there is a place for every style.
What makes this Apartment unique
The views from this top floor apartment are spectacular. Very few places offer such an amazing view of the Caribbean, the bay and the old city. There is a large window that faces the island of Tierrabomba, which is a beautiful sight day and night. The breeze atop of the 25 floor is something worth experiencing. The apartment has been renovated to the highest standards to provide all its guests with a very special stay. Having travelled extensively, I have tried to incorporate details from different cultures to make my place a pleasant space that reflects my eclectic taste.

My home away from home in Colombia!
My second trip and planning another.
Excellent as always!
This lovely loft never fails to host great memories - thank you Santiago :-)))
Great location, great city, great view!!!
Stayed here for a full month. The penthouse is VERY nice and VERY spacious. I am a light sleeper and the only sound you could hear was the cool wind blowing off the water. You really don't need air conditioning at night. Positive things were the large screen televisions,
and wireless internet. The kitchen was more than adequate and modern. The master bedroom was very large with a king size bed. I would have to really be nit picking to find anything wrong. There was no microwave, hot water was hit or miss, and the elevator is SLOW! There are several nice "local" eateries within walking distance and good shopping as well. I rented a car for the month but there are many many taxis! Everyone on site was courteous and friendly. Be prepared---you need to speak some Spanish!! Great place, great time, I will return again.

Very Clean, Large Penthouse with amazing views!
We stayed here in late February and the apartment is all they said it would be. When we arrived the apartment was still being cleaned and the staff were friendly and pleasant. This is our 5th trip to Cartagena and we have stayed in many other apartments that were clean and nice but the views from this place are amazing. The air conditioning worked well and so did the hot water. This is now the only apartment we want to stay in when we visit Cartagena, Colombia! The only comment I would make is that when you read other reviews please keep in mind that you are visiting a Spanish language country. The people are wonderful and very accommodating and want you to truly enjoy their country... negotiation for goods and services is part of the culture. ...sit back, relax and enjoy the wonderful Colombian culture.
My husband and I enjoyed staying in this apartment on the top floor. The views are beautiful from every room. When we first arrived as we did the walk through with Lily we noticed that the bed in the master bedroom had not been made yet. This matter was quickly taken care of. My husband asked the cleaning lady if she knew where he could buy some sandals, which surprisingly to us about 20 minutes later she returned with 2 pair for him to choose from. The location is ideal. Plenty of grocery stores to go to close by, as well as beaches. Edguardo downstairs was great in setting up activities such as the city tour and Rosario Islands. Both tours were prompt and the guides were very nice. The only downside to our trip which has nothing to do with the apartment is the fact that there were too many vendors trying to sell you stuff on the beach. The other thing was when we came outside to go get a boat to go the Tierrabomba Island a man approached us with a card to offer us a package deal. When I pointed in the picture to the boat ride, cabana and chairs and lunch $100,000 col for 2, he said yes, however when we got over there he tried to say lunch wasn’t included,so I had to argue with him for awhile to get what we agreed upon. That was a little frustrating. I wished I booked that with Edguardo as well. El Muelle restauraunt which is on the beach at the dead end when you come out of the apartment, the food and service was very good. Unfortunately we don’t speak Spanish so this made it a little difficult but it was a huge help to have the app iTranslate as well as the converter app for money. I would definitely stay on this apartment again
The apartment has panaromic view of Cartagena new city.
The location is very convenient for walking and taxi rides. The apartment is very spacious and has a great balcony.
