          I saw tank tops, shorts and flip flops/sandals everywhere except for the indoor restaurant that offers the Columbian themed food. I would recommend nicer clothes for that one.

          we prefer swimming in the beach instead of a pool. How is the beach for swimming? Calm water or rough waves?

          Definitely hotel isla pirata not in Cartagena city beaches, maybe in Morros in case you don't want to go to the islands nearby Cartagena where this hotel is located.
