5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I like the property and the historic architecture of the main building. The garden suite building rooms are spacious but lack design detail. The bathrooms were dated but clean. The pool area is great and the private beach area is a real plus for Cartagena! I would have liked live music at the pool and a good lobby bar. This is our second stay and I will definitely return again!

Good visit at Hotel Caribe. An older property, but classic. Some signs of aging, but minor. Comfortable, clean, beautiful pool, spa, and common areas. Nice to have some creatures on the property such as toucan, macaws, etc.Location is very good, easy taxi and bus access
