Killer views and a beachfront location should give this place top rating but the hostile attitude, xenophobia, occasionally snail slow WiFi and underwhelming beach experience place it in the two star category. NOT recommended.

Happy Traveler

Hotel located very well, very close to everything you like to see, food, beach, shopping, sites. the room was very good with view of beach at sunset. transportation is all very close, buffet in motel upscale and nice, expensive but nice. personell were not the most helpfull and you have to be a little pushy. The pool is on the roof and small.

No question. The best

Before leaving for Cartagena, I called Capilla del Mar to see if it was possible to book the same room I had on my February trip. The staff made no promises but indicated they would try. Lo, and behold. I got it. Because I was traveling to Aruba in the middle of my Cartagena trip, I had to make several requests of the reservations staff. Without hesitation, they found a way to make me happy. Talk about value. I am always surprised at how reasonable all the services are. There is never a question about where I will stay in Cartagena. It will always be Capilla Del Mar. No question.
