H HA: Terrible experience checking in an expected room, Hotel .com scammed me booking the place 2 months earlier for nearly double their current priceHotel refused to acknowledge and upgraded me to a room which was not much better - the whole place needs renovation, safe box does not work , coffee machine and hair dryer.Use the stairs to access the only ice machine located in floor 5, for security elevator will get u only to your floor 😭The worst was a cockroach crawling in my room last night.Fresh fruits in the breakfast is covered with gnat flies. Actual domestic flies will fight you for other options. 🤮Thanks god coffee is great and u go eat elsewhere. Staff are polite and friendly, they always act as they do not understand English to get away with a lot of things. 🤬

Mercedes Gonzalez: Las habitaciones y el baño amplios, las camas cómodas.El parqueadero a disponibilidad no tiene muchos puestos.Desayuno variado y el restaurante amplio.Servicio a nivel general atentos. A exención de la mucama que a las 8:15 am toco la puerta y abrió de una para preguntar a que hora quería que me hicieran el servicio muy malo yo vine a descansar y estaba dormida.Hay areas que le falta orden y mantenimiento como por ejemplo los parqueaderos, las fuentes, las jardineras, entre otras.La playa pública, mantenida por una cooperativa de nativos, nada excepcional.

richard castaño: A super nice place to rest and share with family and friends
JULIAN ANDRES AVENDAÑO ARISTIZABAL: The hotel is like a residential complex with a swimming pool. Nothing spectacular, very expensive for what it offers. It is not a hotel for families with children. The big pool has a horrible view and it was also dirty. I do not recommend it. It is a tourist type hotel. Just 3 stars.
Cecilia Cardoso: The very comfortable rooms, the cool pools, the super breakfasts, the only drawback is the check out at 12... the girls are VERY messy and they don't attend by arrival time lasting more than 20 minutes in line..I hope they give them training so I can give them the stars that the place deserves

It takes more than half an hour and I asked for sugar and a spoonWi-Fi is impossible. I had to buy a data chip because I was never able to connect.Rooms: Buenas habitaciones.Food & drinks: Malísimo.
Estefania Gomez: Actually, she was super disappointed, I always stay in the Sonesta hotel chain and I thought that SONESTA CARTAGENA was not going to make the exception.Actually, the kind of details that they lack were impressed, the bathrooms that are located in the gym, do not have a bolt, that is to say that one urinates with the door open, the breakfast buffet is too boring, the same every day, super Simple, nothing to do with food, I ordered the same dish for three days in a row and every day they gave me a different presentation, being the same dish.The pool at the back is dirty, with dirt and plastic packaging, the social area is close to the rooms so you hear noise until 11pm, 12am, so if you come to rest I recommend that you don't do it in the rooms that are above the restaurant because the noise is tremendous.Disappointing the truth.Actually an experience not to return.

Kimberly Guerin: We stayed at the Hyatt Cartagena for a family vacation. Isabel checked us in and was super accommodating. Her customer experience skills are superb.We arrived a couple of hours before checking, she graciously provided a hospitality room for us to change our clothes. While we were out exploring the city, she had our luggage conveniently transported to our room and emailed me. I appreciate the level of service she provided!Rooms: We booked a suite and it was just what we needed; 2 rooms 1 master and 2nd room with 2 twin size beds. Balcony overlooking the water. The pullout couch was super convenient for our family of 5 and the room was spacious.Safety: One of the reasons we decided to stay at the Hyatt was for safety purposes. We have stayed at the Hyatt in other countries and felt extremely safe.I like the idea of having to take 2 sets of hotels to get tothe room. This provides a layer of security bc you gave to go to the main lobby to access the room elevator.Walkability: The hotel is conveniently located in Boca Grande, next to a mall with many shops and in front of a grocery store. It's a couple of mins away via Uber to the Walled City.Food & drinks: We had room service, the food was good and priced reasonably. The drinks by the pool were amazing. We ordered mojitos and they were great!
Emilce Lopez: Everything perfect, very good and very beautiful.
claudia prieto: The hotel is new. Luxury, spectacular, spacious rooms with an incredible view, intelligent climate inside the rooms that ensure a restful sleep, the food is delicious buffet and à la carte, there are several restaurants and a pool area for adults and families. Spectacular pool environment with dj that enlivens everything. The hotel is very large, very safe, the attention of all the staff is first class, luxury at all costs. I loved it, I will surely return to the hyatt chain. Highly recommended.

Jay Peralta: I had such an amazing stay at this Hyatt for a 6 day trip to Cartagena. The views are gorgeous, though it is such a shame the beach is being completely rebuilt so during our stay we just saw construction every day by the water. The service was exceptional and the restaurants were all great. All of the pools have a great view and are never too busy.
Yanis & Yei: Here you find healthy eating and gourmet dishes. It has several restaurants open to the public, amacagua and kokaú. Recommended to visit if you are in Cartagena
Quincy Williams: Positief verrast door ons verblijf in dit hotel. Elke ochtend en avond bij het ontbijt en diner uitstekend geholpen en bediend Jhon Alberth en Darwin. Ze waren altijd vrolijk, spraakzaam en oprecht geïnteresseerd in jou dagbesteding als hotelgast. Mooi hotel altijd netjes en zeer fijne medewerkers. Echt een aanrader!Rooms: Top goed verzorgd en prachtig uitzicht.Nearby activities: Dit hotel is heel centraal gelegen. Het zit echt letterlijk naast een Mall aan en ook centraal voor eigenlijk alle bezienswaardigheden in Colombia.Safety: Top, 24/7 beveiliging bij dit hotelhoewel dit totaal niet nodig is in CartagenaFood & drinks: Echt geweldig. Altijd goed op smaak en keurig bediend.
Alejandrina Peralta Cambumba: Excellent place, attentive staff, helpfulRooms: hermosa vista, limpia, comoda
Henry Rugeles: Just amazing! Expensive, though! However, the beach across the street is closed under construction.Rooms: Feel and decor of a mid-town Manhattan high-end apartment. Hi tech. Full of modern amenities.Nearby activities: Next to a mall, but very not much else within walking distance.Safety: Super safe. Front desk @ 11th. Floor. Switch to guarded different bank of elevators to access rooms. Need room key to go just to your floor.Food & drinks: Breakfast is amazing. Excellent d'oeuvres and coffee in the conference rooms area.
Hugo G. Guzmán: The best.Rooms: Spacious and well-lit. Very comfortable bed.Nearby activities: Many nearby restaurants, shopping stores and malls.Safety: Well monitored at all times. Staff by elevators in both the lobby and the main entrances.

Zohar Shelah Kottan: Muchas gracias por una hospitalidad perfecta y profesional al más alto nivel. Vine con mi pareja a quedarnos una semana en el hotel... y me enamoré del lugar y de las instalaciones. Estuvimos un mes en el hotel, incluidas dos extensiones de nuestra estadía. El restaurante del hotel, y el desayuno está al nivel de un chef, nada menos que eso. El gerente de reservas pudo darnos una respuesta incluso cuando el lugar estaba lleno y brindó un servicio excepcional. El hotel está situado cerca del aeropuerto y se puede llegar fácilmente al centro de la ciudad vieja. Definitivamente regresaré en el futuro. Muchas gracias a todos y cada uno de los prestadores de servicios.שווה שווה שווה, שירות מדהים.Rooms: A double room with balconyNearby activities: SPA
Juliana Rodriguez: No es un lugar apto para personas asmaticas, ni con problemas respiratorios. Es un hotel supremamente húmedo, tiene alfombra en los corredores lo cual hace que el lugar huela a humedad, dudo mucho sobre el mantenimiento de los aires acondicionados. Después de cambiarme de cuarto 4 veces logre dormir. Termine con inhaladores y antibiótico, todo mal.Food & drinks: El desayuno esta bueno, la variedad es buena.
vifelli vifelli: Good attention at reception and good assortment in the breakfast buffet
juan sebastian quintero uribe: It’s a nice place to be. The staff is super friendly. The gym is ok ( it could be better but is not bad ) the pools area is small but cozy with a bar near it and the beech entrance is right behind the hotel so there’s no need to move much to get there. It’s a quiet and nice place to rest and enjoy the Caribbean weather
Pablo Arango: A bottle of water from the mini bar for 35,000 pesos. An abuse.The air conditioning does not work well
Jesus Castillo: Excellent hotel, fully equipped, good service, very good facilities, spacious and with all the comforts. I recommend it 100%
Viajeros tg: Hotel of the IHG chain, recommended in Cartagena in the Morros area near the airport, the kind attention of the unique staff, the delicious food and the brunch people with great charisma and highly recommended service

Hotel Las Islas: what do users think?
Anna Restrepo: The accommodations were amazing! We really enjoyed having bikes to ride around the resort as well as being able to call for a golf cart. We also really enjoyed the private beaches and excursions (snorkeling) that were offered. The spa massage was also amazing! We gave the resort 4 stars because the food was good but nothing wow-ed us. Overall, we had a fantastic get away here and would definitely recommend the resort!
Alison Brown: Let’s start with the good. The location is absolutely beautiful and the grounds are stunning. It has the potential to be a really wonderful hotel. Having a bungalow overlooking the ocean (#28) was so peaceful and serene. I also liked that you could call a golf cart to take you around, because many things were spread out (15 minute walk) which can be nice at times, but it’s also extremely hot and humid and the paths are not well lit at night. The food we had was also amazing, highly highly recommend the sea bass!! It was also neat to take the boat to the private island which had another pool, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, and a full bar and restaurant. Having cocktails while swimming in the warm ocean was delightful. The rooftop bar was also very cool and I watched a lightning storm for an hour one night while sipping on piña coladas.The not so great, which disappoints me to say, is that we were overcharged by nearly $600. When we checked out, there was over $300 worth of charges for things we cancelled or changed, and it took over 30 minutes for them to remove them. Our boat was departing so we asked for an itemized receipt to be emailed, which finally arrived 1 week later after asking for it 4 times, in which I found close to another $300 worth of overcharges. One of my massages was significantly overcharged and other random things like mini bar food was charged that we did not consume. Word of advice: DO NOT book through their website because you will NOT get a confirmation of how much you paid when you booked.In addition to this, when we arrived to our beautiful bungalow Friday evening for two nights, our pool was nearly empty. Upon 8pm, it was still not full. This was extremely disappointing, especially given the price we were paying. Our shower was also completely broken. Barely any water would come out, it was moldy, falling apart, and there were worms wriggling on the ground, and the hot water did not work the entire time we stayed in that room. Only a few hours into our stay, and we had multiple repair people there fixing things and they didn’t even fix the shower after spending hours in our bungalow. They also left tools in the bathroom.Saturday we asked to speak with the hotel manager, Eduardo, who was lovely. We had spent most of our time at the hotel listening to construction noise due to a remodel of some kind a couple bungalows over, which continued the entire weekend, unacceptable without warning or the option for a discount. We discussed getting to stay for one complimentary night at the private island to make up for our bungalow being unusable for the first night. It took them over 24 hours to figure out if this was possible, and honestly after two days of no showers, we were thinking we call it a loss and head home. We finally heard back that we could stay, so we moved our stuff to the private island and had a brand new bungalow for one night, which was lovely and very beautiful. Unfortunately you can only order room service from there, which is fine, except we were charged a tip for using the mini bar and we were charged for things we did not take.Overall, operationally, this hotel is a mess. They should not be renting bungalows that are inoperable with showers that do not function at $600 a night surrounded by loud construction noise. The stress of dealing with all the issues during our stay, and that I’m still dealing with nearly two weeks later, is unacceptable, especially at their price point. The fact that we were overcharged by $600 is also EXTREMELY alarming. If you decide to stay here, take photos of all receipts and plan to spend at least an hour upon check out making sure everything is correct and the price on your bill is what you were quoted.
Krista Frederic: Remote, beautiful resort for a quiet getaway. The bungalows are private and lovely whether in the trees or on the water. Recommend 3 days or so here to experience the resort and local offerings. Staff are very attentive and responsive but not overly so. Food is very good with a wide variety of choices for all meals unlike some similar resorts. Great value!
Nicolás Arízaga: Excellent hotel for a couple's trip. The Bungalow type room in the trees has a spectacular view and at the same time gives a lot of privacy. I recommend waking up at 6am and going to the top floor of the restaurant where dinner is served to watch the sunrise with the awakening of the birds and the iguanas that are in the treetops.The breakfast is very varied and has healthy options.
Pamela Carolina Muñoz Faundez: Wonderful hotel, ideal to rest and disconnect from the world.The restaurant menu is poor, but everything else is ok.100% recommended.
magda cisneros: The place is incredible, perfect to disconnect from everything and feel part of nature. I loved being there. The hotel is very large and you can get around by bike or golf carts. It has two private beaches and one of them has a very nice infinity pool.
Laura: It was peaceful, but with plenty to do. I’ve never been to a better hotel in my entire life. Additional to the cost of the hotel for the night, plan to budget for the activities, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. One of the best bungalows is number three 😉Rooms: 5/5|Service: 4/5|Location: 4/5Hotel highlights Great view, Quiet …More
Radu Nan: We took a couples retreat to this resort while in Colombia. The property is isolated from the town of Baru and is set in a forest and along the shore. Our bungalow was set on the shore and had a private seawater pool. The setting is nice at first but lacked privacy. The food options were limited and mediocre. Staff were friendly. The location is too far from Cartagena and too expensive for the age of the resort and limited amenities.Rooms: Great views, lack privacy, old interiorSafety: Felt safe on property. The car ride is long and roughWalkability: Easy to walk and bike on propertyFood & drinks: Mediocre with limited menu
Izzy: Like others, I was a little apprehensive after reading some of the negative reviews. We stayed 2 nights and happily our experience was wonderful from start to finish.We stayed in one of the treehouses which was beautiful. Clean, spacious and a totally unique experience. You are essentially in the jungle canopy, so there will be a few bugs and lizards but that’s to be expected and wasn’t an issue for us at all. The hotel grounds and beaches are beautiful and well looked after. You can either cycle or walk between areas - it’s a big property but walking doesn’t usually take more than 15 minutes depending on where your room is and where you’re trying to get to. Alternatively you can call for a buggy. Staff are very friendly, helpful and welcoming.The breakfast buffet is excellent and in one of the most magical settings right on the water. There’s a choice of fruit, hams, cheese and eggs as well as coffee and fresh juice. The lunch options are equally good - we particularly enjoyed the ceviche and gazpacho on the beach. Dinner was also excellent - we had the grill option, fish and pasta during our stay there and it was all delicious. Service was very good - we never had to wait long or re-order anything.The sky was too cloudy for stars but the guy went out of his way to focus the telescope on the moon which was amazing to see in such detail. The bar has amazing views over the property so definitely worth a visit too. You can also kayak and paddleboard or swim to the little jetty with deck chairs floating in the sea.I struggle to understand the negative reviews - it’s strange that experiences can be so inconsistent. I would say that it is an ecological resort in the jungle so be prepared to manage your expectations accordingly. The phone in the room didn’t work but they sent someone out right away and fixed it. The wifi can be a little patchy and we had some geckos and a monkey visiting our balcony but again, that’s the location. For us it was a magical experience and the perfect setting for our engagement. We will remember it forever. Thank you!
Ross Kirby: Don’t believe any reviews about this fantastic resort that fall below five star!The setting is idyllic, the staff are first class and the whole atmosphere is incredibly special.The hotel is immersed amongst beautiful wildlife and the beaches are private and serene. If you want an authentic yet luxurious experience, this is it.The bungalows themselves are very well kitted out and extremely comfortable. The food throughout the resort across each of the three restaurants is delicious and offers a great variety.Any review of this place that falls below 5 star suggests a high maintenance and uptight reviewer!Would 100% recommend and hopefully return!
Elvi Thio: This place cannot be more than a 2-star resort.We were a group of 10 girls with 5 separate bookings. It was a logistical nightmare (among many other things) and we met other guests during our stay who experienced similar issues / arguments with front desk.The property is immersed in nature, which is nice, but the amenities are not well maintained and the customer service is absolute TRASH. Initially chalked it up to language barrier, but oh man their defensive attitude, lack of training, and clear indifference towards helping out guests is shocking especially for a 5-star resort costing much more than average hotels in Colombia.1. They told us when we arrived that our 2-bedroom bungalow that we booked 3 months ago was under construction. No prior communication of this.2. They messed up the room assignments and switched two girls’ rooms - did not properly check passport names against their hotel booking system to know who booked what. Many girls arrived at a room they did not book. Then they blamed us for it lol.3. The spa is under construction so it wasn’t fully opened. The resort had many parts (paths + building new bungalows) under construction. A few of us woke up to construction noises.4. There is NO YOGA instructor on site (for more than a year already!). They said people bring their own instructors onto the resort? Didn’t bother trying to help us with contacts or figuring out how to find an instructor.5. The 2nd mini island was closed off on Saturday we were there for a private event. They didn’t tell us at check in. We planned our day around it and they only told us when we arrived at the lobby that we couldn’t go that day.6. One night while we were on the clubhouse rooftop they turned off the elevators and just told us it was broken.7. Things would just stop working. Our room’s phone and internet turned off for two nights, we had to go to front desk to ask them to fix it since we couldn’t call them. Also hot water doesn’t always work.8. Beware of the bungalows more inland. They get no air, no breeze. The stairs for these have no lights so it’s hard to go up and down.9. Bicycle wheels are deflated. We were a group of 10 girls with 5 rooms and a few of us had bikes with deflated tires making it hard to ride them.10. Massages AVOID KENNY AND AMALIA. Across ~10 massages our group got, no one enjoyed massages from these two. They just rub you and missed the neck and important parts of the body.11. Golf carts take forever to arrive. The property is big so you can call the lobby requesting a golf cart to take you to places, but it takes on average 20 minutes to arrive…12. They messed up billing… a lot. We each spent a lot of time at front desk double checking what we were charged. Lots of charges were on our bill, like 8 different spa services. When we made the booking at the spa, we gave each person’s room numbers, as we did when we signed checks at the restaurants, so not sure what caused the mixups still.13. They kept confirming with us the transportation bookings, then when we check later the booking would not be in their system?? Happened multiple times.14. Food sucks except the breakfast buffet. Ceviche wasn’t very fresh nor tasty. The one only restaurant for dinner sucks but you don’t have any other options. Best you can get is the beef burger or the curried quinoa.15. Service is SLOW. Expect to wait a long time for food. Order even before you get hungry because you will be by the time the food comes out.The nice things:1. Breakfast buffet is delicious, fresh and a great view while on this terrace space above water2. They provide insect repellant3. Free kayaking and paddle boarding equipmentThis resort needs to close for 3 months, train all the staff, finish construction, update the pool and public areas a bit, and then start fresh.FYI car transportation one way was ~330k Colombian pesos for an economy car and ~605k pesos for a van fitting up to 6pax. For a boat transfer, it was about $65 USD per person one way.For $450+ a night, it’s sooooo not worth it. Hard pass.
Nataly G: Un hotel tan caro y lujoso debería ofrecer una experiencia perfecta y desafortunadamente deja mucho qué desear en un aspecto importantísimo: la comida.Para el tipo de hotel y el precio que estás pagando por la estadía el desayuno es bastante limitado. He estado en hoteles mucho más económicos que ofrecen mucha más variedad, calidad y abundancia en sus desayunos incluidos. En el desayuno del Hotel Las Islas no hay buffet libre y la variedad es bastante limitada. Además el café es feo.En los restaurantes la comida es carísima y bastante mediocre. El precio de los platos es excesivo y la comida es muy corriente y las porciones son diminutas. La experiencia con la comida es tan mala que pone en duda si vale la pena hospedarse en este hotel.De resto el hotel está bien. Los bungalows son preciosos y el servicio es muy bueno. La playa está bien y hay poca gente y el ambiente en todo el hotel es siempre silencioso. Sin embargo, la relación calidad precio de la comida es tan mala que no volvería.Rooms: Preciosas.Food & drinks: Para el tipo de hotel y el precio que estás pagando por la estadía el desayuno es bastante limitado.

Tammy Dustmeit: Nice hotel, nice room, nice food and great service. Just certain things need to be fixed, ex. Not constant electricity(wasn’t major only out for like 2 seconds) and at first is difficult to navigate throughout the resort. But still great!

Manuela Adrogue: The place is very cute. the beach is standard
Brenton Anthony: Firstly starting with the positives. The resort truly was beautiful, the fit outs of not only the rooms, but also the restaurants, bar etc was great. There is a small beach at the resort, but we preferred the beach in their private island (free boat transfers over and back from the resort). The food and drink prices were reasonable (beers COP 18k, cocktails between COP 45k-65k, mains between COP 80k-120k) and the food itself was really amazing…high restaurant quality. There are around 55 bungalows on site, but very well spaced out and very private, we could only see one other from our treehouse. The treehouse/room itself was also fantastic, great AC, huge bathrooms and a beautiful deck that overlooked the water. Also provided complimentary waterproof bag and sunglasses which was a nice touch.Unfortunately we found there were a few drawbacks, mainly around the service. There were multiple small issues that in isolation, are not a big deal, but just seemed very frequent and ended up quite frustrating. Some issues included:- minimal drinking water (were provided 2 x 300ml bottles at check-in but nothing thereafter). We asked twice for some water to be brought to our room, on the first occasion it took 4 hours, and 6 hours the next time (no joke).- Poor check-in experience, we weren’t provided any detail around food menus (only that they had them at the restaurants), eating times, mini bar, boat schedule etc…and was only on the second night we found out there was a QR code with all menus/guides/details etc.- bathroom supplies (body wash, shampoo etc) weren’t restocked once we ran out, same with towels and robe.- At meal times, inconsistency around service. Sometimes you would get coffee, eggs, napkins, cutlery etc sometimes not.- Wifi is poor throughout the resort, which is somewhat understandable given the location in BaruOverall, the resort is beautiful but for the price you pay, it is let down a little by the service. I think at a resort with a similar price point in Asia/Europe the service and little things would be far superior.
