I traveled to Cartagena for a few days to go snorkeling at Islas Rosario. I arrived at Hotel Barlovento2 hours before check in, but Luisa was excellent and gave me a room that was ready. The hotel smelled very nice. The bathroom was small, but very clean...as was the rest of the room. The bed was hard, but I had no problems sleeping. The breakfast buffet was included....not a lot of choices, but the food was pretty good. The pool is small and there only are 3 beach chairs. If you bring a guest that is not on the reservation, there is an extra charge of $65,000 pesos. If you are looking for a deluxe hotel, there are other options...but for an inexpensive and clean/safe place to sleep, I would definitely recommend it.

Really enjoyed this hotel. Great breakfast. Great location. Clean rooms with quite a bit of space. Receptive staff. Quiet room.. I can't think of anything negative. I would gladly stay there again. The hotel also helps you with taxis, airport, and transfer to other cities.

We had a good experience at this hotel. We chose a room that was the size we wanted. The staff was friendly and two staff members spoke good English. When we came in from the days' activities, the friendly restaurant manager, Louis, gave us coffee each time. There was an excellent laundry service nearby. We used the pool and enjoyed, we also sat in the pool area one evening and had our own beer and snack. The hotel provided beach towels for our outings and for the pool, which we purchased through the hotel - a tour to the mud volcano, and a tour to Playa Blanca.

Room Tip: Choose the room that suits you. We chose a large room over a small one.
