Needing an escape from Bogota for a long weekend, I returned to Cartegena. Only a 1 hour flight and a short cab ride out to Bocagrande (don't bother with airport shuttles -- a taxi is only 19,000 pesos) and the Hotel Caribe awaited.
I was there for 3 nights and unfortunately the first night I was kept awake by a dripping in the wall between the bed and bathroom. They happily moved me to another part of the hotel for my other two nights and that room was lovely -- a small suite with a sitting room. A bit further from the pool and restaurant, but that was OK.
The room rate included a nice buffet breakfast with all the regular selections. Good Colombian coffee and lots of juices and treats to keep one going for the better part of the day!
The pool was delightful with lots of seating around the deck and an assortment of umbrellas to ward off the tropical sun.
The poolside restaurant offered wood fired pizzas and other such dinner items. With cold cervezas to accompany the meal, all was good.
Would recommend this as a quiet place to get away.More
