Great location. Easy to get to the walled city and everywhere in between. Our kids loved the pool and the beach.

Andrea's place was awesome. It's very modern, it has a great gym (which I frequented daily --- better than some hotels I've stayed at), an awesome pool and the location on the beach can't be beat. With that said -- there is construction going on in the area. There is a major highway development taking place and when we were there, the construction was concentrated directly outside Andrea's apt/balcony. With that said, the workers are working very fast, and I believe they will have progressed further down the strip in the next few weeks so that the noise won't be as loud. There is also smaller work being done on walkways, but this didn't present any noise. All of this work is in an effort to make this whole strip the hot spot of Cartagena. It's seriously going to be the South Beach area of Colombia in the next few years. All of the building/architecture in the area is ultra modern, so if you love the Miami South beach look, this is place to stay. There aren't alot of food options in the area. The Radisson next door has a restaurant, but we only ate there once. We did find a restaurant in a smaller villa establishment next to the Radisson, that we ate at a few times for lunch. I believe it's call Sarah's Cafe (or something like that). Most buildings have a small convenience shop (including liquor) including Andrea's place. The market in Andrea's building also has good arepas in the morning, but they go fast. Definitely check out the Walled City. Ask security to get a cab. You shouldn't pay more than 14,000 COL pesos (about $5USD). Andrea will give you directions to her place and the address to give to drivers, but it was sufficient to tell the drivers "Next to the Radisson Hotel." The area around the airport has a lot of local eateries. We discovered this towards the end of the trip. We took an Uber to pick up some food from a local chicken spot (Frisbee) in that area one night. Cabs to the airport are a bit less than to the walled city and it's literally a straight shot to Andrea's house (round trip would be less than $10USD). Some other advice: Day trips to various beaches are very popular. Be very weary from who you purchase these trips. We booked a trip for the day before we left from someone in the walled city, paid a small deposit (less than $10USD for two), however, the transportation never came to pick us up. They kept trying to have us go the next day, but we were leaving so we were out of that money. I would recommend finding out where the boats leave and buying a ticket directly from the boat captain. It's the cheapest option I hear. Overall, this was an amazing experience and I would definitely return.

Thank you Maurice. I'm glad that you like the apt, amenities and the building. There is a public construction that has been affecting the buildings in that road. I'm really sorry that when you stayed in my apt in June; you had 2 days with a lot of noise as the city was putting some pillars on the ground just in front of my apt. Since you stayed at my apt, the construction has moved down the street and fortunately moving further away from the my apt building. I do apologized that you had that inconvenience while staying at my apt. There are actually more restaurants close by than the ones you found. My sister Amparo has left a little booklet with information about touristic places to visit in Cartagena and also restaurants that deliver to my apt building. I have asked her to add a more detailed list of restaurants and local food places close to the apt and also some in the airport area-Crespo neighborhood. I really appreciate your input. You are welcome to stay at my place anytime in the future. Regards Andrea

The apartment is as described. Beautiful building with excellent amenities that you feel like in a resort. The apt was clean and organized. I walked on the beach that is the back of the building. I also used the sauna and the jacuzzi. There is a minimarket in the first floor where I bought enough stuff to cook breakfast. 1st floor reception/security area were helpful in calling a taxi for transportation. I did get a SIM card from "claro" a cell phone company to have internet in the city and be able to call Uber ( approx US$20 for unlimited phone calls/4 GB internet). Andrea was available and had excellent communication. Her sister Amparo was also nice and helpful. I did not get a massage ( you have to ask the front desk to call the massage therapist and get an appt). The wall city is approx 10-15 min away. I will definitely stay here again next time I come to Cartagena. El apt es como esta descrito y las fotos le hacen justicia al apt y edificio. Se siente como un resort. La playa esta en la parte de atras del edificio y disfrute caminando en la playa. Tambien use el sauna y jacuzzi. Cocine desayuno, compre suficiente en el supermercado que esta en el primer piso. La recepcion/ seguridad del primer piso fue muy amable y servicial para llamar taxis. Andrea estuvo disponible y tuvo excelente comunicacion.

El apartamento es muy bello, acogedor y está en una excelente ubicación. Su dotación es muy completa, de la mejor calidad. Las zonas sociales son espectaculares, la playa es fabulosa, la piscina y el baño turco son geniales. Las anfitrionas son adorables, nos dieron las orientaciones necesarias para disfrutar de la ciudad; el restaurante queda muy cerca y ofrece una comida muy variada, deliciosa y a muy buenos precios. Muchas gracias por todas sus atenciones y por ofrecernos tan maravilloso apartamento para unas vacaciones espectaculares!!! Recomendaremos esta opción a nuestros amigos y familiares, y cuando volvamos a Cartagena, sin duda lo haremos en este apartamento. Bendiciones.

I love swimming, kayaking, riding my bike. My apt is my home away from home. I really enjoy going to Cartagena and honestly spent most of the time in the apt. I always use the sauna- either after walking on the beach, swimming or after the gym. My mom and sister live close by and love to spend time with them. My sister helps me with the apt reservations.
Me encanta nadar, kayaking, montar en bicicleta. Cuando viajo a Cartagena me quedo casi todo el tiempo en el apt. Uso el bano turco casi todos los dias, despues de caminar en la playa, nadar o ir al gimnasio. Mi mama y mi hermana viven cerca del apt y me encanta estar con ellas y disfrutar de la comidita hecha por mi mami. Mi hermana me ayuda con las reservaciones del apt.
