I had a couple of friends staying over at Palmetto so after a night out, which is very typical in Cartagena, a couple of friends and I went back to chill for a bit. But apparently you're not allowed to check guests until business hours and there's no one in charge. It's very unorganized and there are no options provided....

If I had to do it over, I would take a hotel. Your stay is directly proportional to the care the owner puts into their apartment. Ours had mattresses like a hard futon. Extremely uncomfortable and we were hurting every day. Dishes were there with some silverware, but only two glasses. Furniture was cheap and air conditioner in the living...

The apartment was on the beach and was extremely convenient....however, it appears the owner of the particular apartment we stayed in has no interest in keeping the place clean and updated. There were cockroaches in our apartment. We made several attempts to speak with the office about our concerns and received a poor/slow response. There was no hot water and...

Frankly we were a little disappointed. The place was a little dilapidated like my pictures shows below, which was not represented properly like on the website on Trip advisors. This place might be considered a little loud for some people, and definitely would be considered not quiet for all. We were on the 36th floor and in front of the...

It is conveniently located near restaurants, shopping, and pretty much anything you need within walking distance. The owner of the rental was phenomenal, always willing to help, have nothing bad to say. The only reason why this was not a perfect review was due to the building management, staff was not too friendly and crazy rules. The pool also closes...

We had a great trip to Cartagena and palmetto was our home away from home. The apartment was nicely equipped, clean and had a great view. The pool had a great view and was private so people from the beach couldn't just pop in on you. The hotel is a reasonable distance to the old downtown area. The food in...

Nice location in the Bocagrande area. My stay was good. The rooms are spacious with decent views. Secure place to stay with security. You must wear wristbands to leave in & out. Shopping and eating is within walking distance. Local beach is across the street. I would stay again.

My sister and I stayed here March 9th - 23rd in one of these condos. Our unit on the 21st floor is rented by an American company but the condo has a local "adminitrator". The owner was pleasant, helpful and prompt to answer questions texted or e-mailed. His administrator was surly, did not make any effort to communicate with me,...

Loud music at nights. No one at the administration to report in the event of loud parties. Regularly only two of the three elevators were running. We booked the apartment through AirBnB and after we arrived we discovered that the price we paid was almost 40% above the price at Cartagena's administrative office.
