How to Get There
We were horrified by the captivity and treatment of the slothes who were dragging themselves around on extremely hot concrete at times trying to get into the air conditioned lobby. These creatures do not come from this kind of heat. Their conditions were horrific and tourists were picking them up under their armpits which is painful. We could not enjoy our vacation knowing how sad these animals were. The hotel rooms were also awful and the beach dirty and dangerous. The ocean was filled with motorized vehicles speeding amongst swimmers. Never ever again.
Hotel Caribe is a nice hotel. It reminded me of a resort. Rooms were adequate with traditional furnishings. The pool area was beautiful and the grounds were well manicured. There is even a play area for children. Plenty of areas on the property to just sit and relax. You might even see an animal or two! The hotel is across the street from a beach and there are plenty of place to eat, within walking distance.
My girlfriend and I had the best time at Hotel Caribe. We stayed there for 5 nights and there is really nothing we could complain about. Our room was spacious and had sea view. The bed was huge and comfortable. Breakfast was included and offered a great variety. Service was superb as anything we wanted such as newspaper and hairdryer was brought to our room instantly after asking for it. There are two pool. A bigger one to swim and a smaller one to relax or for children. We specially liked the "vibe" of the old elevator and the fact that there are a lot of beautiful birds in the outdoor areas of the hotel. My recommend staying at Hotel Caribe specially for couples and families and would stay there again when going back to Cartagena.
Giving it a full compliment of stars for the pool alone. Although close $40 usd for the day here, you get a complimentary welcome drink, pool towel, and a lunch but what you really get is a peaceful spot to sunbath. The walk from the lobby to the pool feels tropical and you will see small deer and some parrots who are all part of the ambiance. Next time we come to Cartagena, we just might think about staying here. Bonus, the beach is al all most across the street.
Hotel is nicely situated. Within walking distance from shops and restaurants. Rooms are clean and spacious. Beach across the street. Food was adequate. Pool is nice. Even got a haircut at the salon within the grounds. Cost me ten bucks. Overall great stay.
