In general our stay there was fine. Breakfast was OK but boring not too many choices. Security is obsessive as many other comments about this hotel in other pages, sometimes very uncomfortable. The 19% Columbia tax is a rip off!

Great stay

From the moment we walked in we were treated as VIPs. Check in process was quick, the room was nice, clean and comfortable with a great ocean view. Complimentary breakfast had a large variety of fruits, juices and breads. They will also make eggs to order if you prefer. But what made our trip was the hotel staff, they were extremely helpful and nice when asked for anything.

Nice place overall

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
A little pricey but nice stay. Small casino right in the hotel, the only hotel in the area with a casino inside. Right across the street from the beach. Staff was a little impolite but nothing horrible. Rooms were very nice in comparrison to other hotels in the area. Walkup was about 100 more than internet booking. I would stay again.

Could have been better

I understand that hotels in resort towns on the Carribean are almost never as good as you think they will be but I have to admit, Almirante was a major let down. The location of the hotel seems nice from far away but when you get there, you realize the area is run down. Maybe Cartagena isn't what it used to be as a tourist destination and so it isn't well maintained but the roads and sidewalks were poor, the beach was very dirty, and you didn't get the feeling that this was a safe area. To avoid the beach, we decided to try the hotel's pool. Unfortunately, it is small and badly designed. There are only 2 depths, 35" (0.75m) which is okay for kids above a certain age and 59" (1.5m) which meant that anyone shorter than 5' 9" would have to stand on their tip toes or just keep swimming. You couldn't just relax in the pool. The hotel staff was average at best. Front desk does not bother to tell you that if you want to use the very old safe in the room, you will have to ask for a key for it which means you have to return to the front desk a second time and wait on line again. It took more than 30 minutes for the bags to be brought up to the room which is annoying when you want to just get out and go. The water pressure (13th floor) was very low, so taking a shower was more frustrating than relaxing. Some of the towels were old and stained. The furniture and fixtures were old and tired but the bed was reasonably comfortable. Breakfast was not bad. One lady in particular made an excellent omlette. Free internet access was nice.

Nice Hotel

This hotel is one of the nicest in Bocagrande. Hotel staff was very nice and friendly. Food in the restaurant was very good. A little pricey, but very good. The rooms could use some updating, especially the bathrooms. Temperature control in the room was a little bit of an issue. All and All I was very satisfied with my stay.
