Every moment of out stay at the Santa Clara was amazing. Each and every employee that we spoke to went out of their way to make sure that we were enjoying our time there. The concierge staff, especially Rafael and Marcos were incredible and so thoughtful. They made dinner reservations, organized our COVID tests to return to the US and arranged for us to charter a boat during the trip. Because of them, our time in Cartagena was unforgettable and we will be sure to return!

Jamie Couples - 17/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Beautiful place, although a bit large for me meaning way too many guests. I like a smaller boutique experience generally however. The rooms are comfortable but I wouldn’t describe them as very charming. The staff is amazing. The breakfasts are delicious and snd the lobby and courtyard are stunning.

We had a wonderful week at the Santa Clara in every way. We stayed in a fifth floor room with a wonderful view of the ocean and pool. Gustavo was a wonderful butler who handled everything including my wife’s illness. Oscar, made sure we had good chairs each day at the pool and the service at the pool was top notch. Carina was superb at the Spa arranging a wonderful couples massage and more! Annie at the front desk was amazing and immediately handled a room problem we had. First Class Luxury!! We’ll be back for sure!

Alberto B 03/12/2020 TripAdvisor review

The entire staff made our trip extremely memorable! You can find many beautiful hotels, but almost impossible to find this type of service! The concierge took care of all of our dinner reservations (Andres, Marcos, Rafael & team), but our favorite part was spending the day at one of the most beautiful pools in Cartagena, especially being pampered by Alex and the entire pool staff! We can't wait to go back!

Dear Alberto B, Thank you for sharing your experience with us and with the users of TripAdvisor! Creating memorable experience is what we strive for. I will share your comments with our concierge team, Marcos, Rafael & Andres and of course with Alex and the rest of the pool Staff, i am sure they will be very happy to know that you acknowledge the service and work of them. We look forward to welcome you back and to continue creating legendary moments. Regards, Daniela Martinez Torres Guest Relations Manager
