We stayed at the Ananda with 2 kids. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The room was large enough for the four of us. Our hotel experience was impeccable. We used the hotel to reserve a private boat to go on Rosario islands. The service they booked for us was a total disaster -which we hope the hotel will...

I spent four days at the Ananda during Holy Week. The positives: Ananda is a beautiful building in the Old City. The pool and roof deck are all very nice places to relax. The bartender, breakfast staff, and men working at the front desk were all friendly (Camilo is a front desk standout). Negatives: Noise is a significant problem in...

Came here with my girlfriend and our good friends from Japan. They are a lovely couple with a 7 & 10 year old who absolutely loved the pool. We arrived after spending 3 nights in the San Bernardo islands. The luxury of Anandá was a great way to follow the rustic beauty of the islands and enjoy the delights of...

Ananda was our first stop on our first visit to Cartagena and we were delighted by its typical old world charm - huge wooden entrance doors with heavy brass knocker, tiled entrance with dark wood furniture, staff in crisp white jackets...

Stayed here with a group of friends and it was truly excellent. Wonderful location in the heart of Cartagena. Almost everything is walkable except for the beaches that are a boat-ride away. The rooftop pool is a gorgeous place to relax between the daytime beach adventures and nighttime dinner and dancing festivities. Excellent value for the price as well. Totally...
