Cartagena is a history city, the monuments are there: sober, ancient monasteries, churches, battlements and the remains of bloody battles: a testimony to the invincible men and women who brought freedom to the “heroic city”.

Walk the streets, look at the Spanish colonial buildings – the Palace of the Inquisition, the Clock-Tower and the Castle of San Felipe de Barajas; enjoy the soft, warm breezes as you pass through the squares and plazas.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was a wonderful place to stay near the old town in Cartagena. It looks exactly like the pictures and is clean, spacious and well kept. It was nice to sit out on the balcony after a long day walking around the old city. The beach is just across the street but we didn't use it. It is not the most beautiful of beaches but it was not crowded with people, which was nice. The internet worked fast and great. The cab ride from airport was only 9000 colombian pesos( 4-5$) and a ride into the old city only (phone number hidden) pesos ( 3$) and about 5 minutes away so it was very easy to get around. Make sure you ask the driver about the price and agree on it before you get in the cab because they don't have meters. Cabs were always immediately available outside the building. There are not places to get food within walking distance but there is a surtimax grocery store that you could take a cab to if you want to buy food for cooking, or the doorman also mentioned you can just call and have food delivered if you need anything. I preferred going into the old town for all my meals. This is a great peaceful place if you want to get away from the old town for a bit. The pool was very nice and long for swimming laps, and they had a nice workout room as well. Overall we had a great experience here.

  • This apartment was great. It looked exactly as it did in the pictures, the view is amazing; the apartment is new and clean, the building is in on the beach, new and elegant. You can relax and have some work done too, the internet works and is very fast.
    The staff is very friendly and helpful. Dalila, the housekeeper, was always available and ready to help.
    This is one of the best apartments I have ever taken online.

    El departamento fue genial. Se ve exactamente como en las fotos, la vista es expectacular; el departamento es Nuevo y esta limpio, el edificio esta sobre la playa, es nuevo y elegante. Uno puede relajarse y trabajar tambien, la internet funciona y es rapida.
    El personal del edificio es muy amigable y servicial. Dalila, la ama de llaves, estaba siempre disponible y lista para ayudar.
    Este es uno de los mejores departamentos que haya rentado en linea.

  • The apartment was super clean, with a gorgeous view about a mile outside of town. Cabs are quite cheap and easy to get right outside, or it's a pleasant walk (about 15-20 minutes) to the old town. Maria was quick to respond to any questions and I had no issues checking in or dropping off the keys with the cleaning lady, Delila. Quiet neighborhood makes for a relaxing and comfortable stay, away from some of the hubub of the old city. The beach across the street is very quiet and the water clean - there are no peddlers or others to bother you. Overall a highly enjoyable place to spend a relaxing beach vacation!

  • Good location, Maria Fernanda was more than willing to help with any needs...comfortable stay. Not many dining options nearby but 3 min taxi to the old city and taxis right outside the apt. Quiet enough also...
    Only problem we had was that security were very strict with allowing us to have friends visit the apartment..Thankfully Maria Fernanda helped with this situation and it is something you may like to organise beforehand. Overall, a good stay and I recommend this apartment...especially to couples.

  • Maria and her housekeeper, Delila, were both very nice and responsive. Any time I needed something like, for example, the gas wasn't working on the stove, Maria responded quickly and Delila came promptly to turn it on. Even the doormen were helpful and friendly.

    Maria's apartment is definitely a good value considering the view and location across from the beach. One can shower, cook, and lounge in bed while looking at the waves. Also, the apartment is located on a busy street with lots of taxis. It took me less than 2 minutes to hail taxis and one can get almost anywhere in Cartagena for less than $5 USD. It's a 15-20 walk or a 5 min taxi ride to the Walled City, and a 5 minute ride to the airport. Unfortunately, there's not much to do in the immediate vicinity of the apartment, but taxis are very inexpensive.

    I would definitely stay here again.

  • Maria's apt at Alta Mar is great, the view is spectactular! The apt is very nice, spacious and modern. Its on the 14th floor of a new building. However the beaches nearby are not that nice, but that goes for most of Cartagena including Boca Grande. You need to visit Playa Blanca if u want beautiful beaches. The apt is about a 5min taxi ride(6000 pesos/$3) to the OLD CITY which i found to be the best place to hangout, especially at nite. It has some incredible restaurants and scenery and views. I did not care for Boca Grande which is the new or modern part of Cartagena. Its ok but very crowded and commercial with crowded not so nice beaches, and you will be hassled and harassed to death by street vender! I was hassled very little in the Old City. Overall great trip, the apt was very reasonable and clean. A must see is Castilla de San Felipe and Playa Blanca!!! Dont pay more than $6000 pesos for any taxi!

  • A short taxi ride away to Old Town, or a good 20 minute walk. Has a nice view of the beach, located in a very new and clean building with friendly staff. Maria provided recommendations and all was done very professionaly.

  • Out of all of my stays on Airbnb, this apartment was my favorite. The reservation was very easy to make. Maria, the owner, had her cleaning lady wait at the apartment with keys for me. She also sent explicit directions on how to get to the apartment and what to say to the taxi driver in Spanish, as I know very little Spanish. It was also very quick to get to from the airport (ten minute tax drive). The apartment itself was beautiful. It was immaculate, had a great wifi connection, had cable, and all the amenities that one could want. The kitchen was fully stocked, the AC's worked great, both bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable, and both rooms had televisions as well. The balcony was so great to relax on and get some work done (wifi works on the balcony), and the pools and jacuzzis were incredibly relaxing. The apartment building also felt very safe with a doorman on service 24 hours a day. This apartment is about a five minute drive from the historic area (about $2.50), so it's easy enough to get downtown; taxis can be caught at any time of the day right outside of the building. All in all, I was very satisfied. Maria also went out of her way, as I came back to Cartagena from Santa Marta and wanted last minute reservations with her for a second time. I would highly recommend staying here!!
