I stayed here with my boyfriend for 2 nights after a few days in the Old City. The apartment was exactly as pictured -very spacious, modern, clean and with an incredible ocean view balcony complete with hammock and table/ chairs.
The building and pool facilities have a nice resort feel with multiple well maintained oceanfront pools and comfortable pool loungers. Cartagena's beaches are not its main attraction but the water was warm and it was a still a scenic walk. We spent most of the time poolside. During our stay there were only ever a handful of other vacationers so it was quiet and peaceful.
Air conditioning and wifi worked perfectly. For meals we cabbed into the old city for dinner 1 night and picked up groceries downtown for the other night. We always found cabs immediately right out front (esp at Holiday Inn). Otherwise within walking is 1 pizza / sub shop, a handful of beach front local restaurants (which we didn't try) and a c-store convenience store (with wine, beer and snacks!). The building is on the same strip as a Holiday Inn and other similar ocean front luxury condo buildings.
On the way our cab driver had difficulty finding the place but we were able to eventually locate the holiday inn. The building is Morros Ultra in La Boquilla neighborhood (later when we gave this as the address everyone knew where to go!)
Overall a really great place.
We stayed at Margarita and David's for 5 nights with our 18 month old daughter, and had a great time. The flat was a good size, with a great balcony. Perfect for kids, with 3 fantastic pools right on the beach. Getting Taxis was a breeze and the location on the beach was perfect. Would definitely stay again. Contact with Margarita and David was good, and they responded quickly.
We had a really great time in Cartagena, Margarita's condo at Morros Ultra was very nice just like the pictures showed. They were very easy going and accessible, definitely recommend and will be staying with them in the future.

This domicile in Cartagena is gorgeous. The rooms are absolutely clean, modern, and welcoming. The pictures absolutely do justice to the way everything is laid out. I took advantage of the beach every day for running, and the gym each morning for working out the aches of an aging man. During the morning, I would see the staff hard at work to maintain the pristine condition of the pool and the surrounds.
Needless to say, this is La Boquilla, not Cartagena. If you need to get cash at an ATM, the closest is in Crespo, but I would just go into Cartagena itself. 12 thousand pesos for an AC cab ride into the downtown area. There is an Exito (the main grocery store in Colombia) that has everything you need, as far as groceries are concerned.
You will need to purchase the _perishable_ necessities. The apartment comes with all the cookwear, etc. but from salt to dishwashing soap, you will need to find these either at the store a few buildings north, or by hitting the Exito I mentioned above.
Margarita was always very prompt about getting my questions answered. There is no welcoming "info" sheet in the apartment. So if you want any questions answered, I suggest you build them up and hit Margarita and David right before you get there. I did this with regards to the Wifi access (the password which they will supply you). Speaking of the WIFI... it was exceptionally fast and never hiccoughed.
2 thumbs up.
Well it is a beautiful condo in a very nice neighborhood. It is a comfortable location north of the very busy locations but close enough to be very convienent to the old town. Many others have given this condo a very nice review and I will second their opinion. Here are a few tips that might make your stay better. There are two small stores close by one 3 buildings north and the other is a drug store and convenience store 3 buildings south. There is also an Exito Express about a mile away which is the minimum taxi fare of about $3.50 USD.
Taxis are really inexpensive and in Cartagena none have meters but all of the fares are less than about $7.00 USD. Check out the restaurant recommendations on (website hidden) there are some really good ones there. For an awesome steak try: (website hidden)_Review-g297476-d(phone number hidden)-Reviews-Gaucha-Cartagena_Cartagena_District_Bolivar_Department.html.
Make sure you have the address of where you want to go because the old town has many small roads and even a good taxi driver will not know all of them. If you have (website hidden) Maps that can help.
Also, when you go to the beach if you walk a little left from the condo beach access there is a nice family that will rent you a canopy for about $10 USD per day, they charge a little more for beers than the other guys but less for the canopy (in front of the Morros Epic building). They will also watch your stuff if you want to go for a swim. Everyone sells Aguila Light beer at the beach but the better beer is Club Colombia.
Margarita and David are really nice and helped make my stay very nice. Another tip is the trash is just to the right of the elevators behind a louvered door. Just open the chute and drop in your trash bags. The entire staff at the building is very helpful and friendly! Also, if you just take the wrist band they want you to wear and put it in some of your beach stuff you can show it to the guards and you will not need to wear it all the time. They will get to know you and just ask your room number when you head to the beach.
One final note, about half the buildings in this area start with the name Morros so make sure to say you are going to the Holiday Inn which is next door and you will end up at the right place.
Gracias por tu apartamento. Este apartamento es Sencillamente espectacular con un servicio de seguridad y comodidades increibles. Moderno por Donde quiera que lo mires. Me encanto a mi y a mi esposo, lo tendremos muy encuenta para nuestra visita a Cartagena en un futuro.

This is a very nice condo that I can recommend to anybody that wants to visit Cartagena. It's some distance to the old city, where all the action takes place and most of the restaurants are located. But if you want to alternate a relaxing day at the pool/beach with city tours and restaurants, this is a perfect spot.
The apartment was exactly as pictured. The place was clean with lots of natural light. The building itself has great amenities in the gym, pool, and proximity to the beach. The staff there were very friendly and helpful.
Guests should be aware that most of the action in Cartagena is in or around the old city, which is approximately a 10-15 minute cab ride away. There are no shops or restaurants within walking distance of this apartment but the porters at the building are more than happy to hail a cab to take you around.
5 stars all the way! Such a beautiful rental in the best location. Margarita & David condo is VERY modern and clean (even the balcony floors were spotless) which left me feeling so relaxed staying here. The staff, maid and everyone on this property were very friendly to me and my guest. Its location is only mins from the airport and we had no trouble getting to and from old town. Two nearby stores are within walking distance if you need any drinks or snacks and Holiday Inn right next door serves breakfast lunch or dinner if you are in a rush or just fell like having a quick meal. This town is so beautiful and I want to thank Margarita & David for welcoming my guest an I, making our stay go smoothly.
