This hotel is very clean....The food is excellent...the pool bars drinks are fantastic. The beach is not that great....it's dirty..no white sand....and also there are a lot of people selling stuffs on that beach. They are very aggressive....besides that, everything else is great...One more thing, if you want local foods, leave the hotel and walk two blocks. There are a lot of restaurants in the area selling better food and they are not expensive...I would recommend this hotel....

Excellent location. Great staff. Hard bed.

Pros: Location and security. Room was clean. Great staff-helpful and professional. We used the in house travel agency to book a Rosario Islands tour.
Cons: Softer beds in the rooms. Better room keys that don't lose it's code easily.
Location: Not to far from the airport. On the southern point. Short ride to shopping. You can walk, but you will use taxi's a lot.
The Cartagena Hilton was located in a great location. They have good security in the lobby and on the beach 24/7. The room was on the 3rd floor (350). Facing the pool. Stayed there 7 days. The bed was hard, but that's my only complaint. The room had a large safe, which worked well. The iron and board worked when I used it. The bed had book reading lights, which came in handy. The TV worked well, but only had one US/ English channel, which was CNN Int'l. I would have liked Fox News and a few other American channels. Shower was fine. Stand up shower and everything worked. We used the pool once. Great experience. There are a few pools. Everything from kiddie pools, to adult pools with a slide. Pool bar too. Pool staff was excellent. My wife did her hair and got a massage at the hotel. She loved it. We shopped in the stores in the hotel as well...honest, but pricey. They have an ATM in the hotel by the pool. My understanding is that if you use the ATM you will get the full exchange rate. We ate at Las Chivas just about everyday (hotel restaurant), sometimes more than once. The staff was excellent and the food was safe and enjoyable. I recommend you eat there. The check in and check out process was easy at the desk. Room key can get demagnetized easily. I had to have the room keys re-done a couple times. Just keep it away from phones and electronics and keep it in the sleeve. Overall: I'd stay there again. I'd recommend it to everyone. 9 out of 10.

I've known the hotel for almost 2 decades; difficult to find a staff as friendly, helpful and warm as the one found at the Hilton Cartagena

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, its people !
Cons: No free Internet
I have visited this hotel so many times, both with family or in business related stays; I have never been disappointed with the very unique quality of the personnel at this hotel; from the moment you step in I have been received in a warm, and welcoming maner; great people, great working attitude. And the initial feeling endures during all the stay !! Food is very good, and consistent through out time. Accomodation and amenities are good. It's always been very enjoyable for me to visit the Hilton at Cartagena.

Great Stay

I am glad I chose Cartagena Hilton! The staff were friendly and courteous and always greeted us with a smile. Our room was clean, beautiful and spacious. My children loved playing in the pools and slide while I basked comfortably at the beach; the vendors were the only nuisence but they were not aggressive or pushy, yet, hotel security was always onsite. We enjoyed the variety of foods offered at a buffet-style breakfast located at the Chivas Resturant. We had the pleaure of having the same waiter on our 8-day stay who would have a table ready for us every morning. Also, Cartagena Hilton offers car service for their patrons, as to make sure they are over priced by outside taxi drivers. I'd recommend Hilton's Spa services located in the 1st floor and a wonderful Hair Salon that offers professional and great-priced services. Since we were staying at the Executive Suites, we went up to the 10th Fl. for a snack and computer use. The staff could not have been friendlier and more attentive. Their only concern was to make sure that our stay was a relaxing and pleasureable as possible, and it was! So thank you to all of you

Nice family vacation

We had a good time at the Hilton Cartagena. It is a nice big hotel. What we liked the most was the pools. They have 4 Swimming pools and two whirlpools. There was also a slide that was so much fun. The bedrooms were nice and clean. Really nice ocean view. The restaurants were nice but a little bit expensive but the food was very good. THey have all kind of stores in the hotel. The people at the front desk were nice and helpful. Overall we had a great time there.
