TOO LOUD, TOO HOT, TOO CROWDED

  • 3 of 5

OUR STAY IN CARTEGENA WAS TOO LONG CONSIDERING THE STIFLING HEAT. OUR APARTMENT WAS CLEAN ENOUGH, BED NOT OVERLY COMFORTABLE, GOOD BLACK OUT SHADES FOR SLEEP, GOOD SECURITY AND A GREAT LOUNGING AREA AND POOL. THE SHOWER WAS EXCELLENT WITH HOT WATER, THE TOILET SLOW, GOOD WIFI. LIGHTING FOR A COUPLE IN THEIR 70'S WAS NOT THE GREATEST, KITCHEN VERY CRAMPED. THE LOCATION WAS GREAT EXCEPT FOR THE NOISE AND CROWDS (ESPECIALLY ON CRUISE SHIP DAYS). IF I HAD IT TO DO OVER AGAIN I WOULD STAY IN THE SAN DIEGO AREA--LESS CROWDED AND MORE LOCAL.

Great location, nice contact, lively neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this very fancy apartment in an absolutely central location. It is exactly as shown on the pictures. Claudia was a great host and always replied nice and quickly to all our questions.

Just be aware that Plaza Santa Domingo is a very lively place and can be a bit noisy.

We would recommend the apartment.
