Intercontinental Cartagena De Indias
Great pool/ view but be weary of staff.
We were upgraded to a corner suit and we agreed to pay $400 more total. They charged my card $730!! I spoke to 4 different individuals and finally the last person, a female whom I think was named Maria was not only rude but only offered to return the charge for the additional person which was about $130. We didn’t have a curtain in the bathroom in the living room so basically useless since the building window is so close to the building next door. They also never told us breakfast was included so imagine our anger the last day we were there when a waitress informed us we didn’t owe anything as it’s been included our whole stay! One server at the pool repeatedly ignores our request to return our change until I went in and reminded her we needed change. The pool is amazing though! If you stay here please do not sign anything until they write down the price they verbally tell you and read everything!

Loved it my favorite place I have stayed in Cartagena. I have absolutely nothing negative to say just perfect.

Family stay for wedding
Generally, a high quality, comfortable hotel with good facilities but I was disappointed with some aspects of service and their inability to offer solutions to problems. I was staying with a large group of family and friends for my son's wedding. Several times before and during my 10 day stay I tried to extend my stay by one night with and direct with the hotel but I was never given a response or I was told that the extra night would be more that double the rate that I was paying for the other 10 nights! In the end i ended up stating the extra night at the Hyatt (for a lower price) as did most of my family because if the lack of help and consideration. Also we complained about a staff member bursting in our room, causing some fright, after midnight when we were fast asleep. We haven't had an apology or a response from the management.

Hotel was beautiful. Loved how nice it was and the pool was amazing. Also for those who are concerned about food in the area, the food served in the hotel was excellent.
