3/5 Okay

I have had my eye on this hotel everytime I pass through Cartegena. I really wanted a taste of some elegance with a beautiful setting. That wasn't the case. The place isn't exactly falling apart but it isn't anything special. Just simple things like getting a cup of coffee in the morning turned into a trek across the compound. They gave me a card for a complementary drink and two hours later when I tried to use it they told me tough luck. Why even bother if they are going to make stipulations. I needed my phone charged, nobody seemed to care. This is a world class hotel and something as simple as that they wouldn't provide. I did go across the street to the beach and had some beers at a palapa at a quarter of the price of the hotel and the lady there was gracious enough to charge my phone. Take your business somewhere else.
