Beautiful property, wonderful staff

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Krissy F TripAdvisor review

The hotel itself, especially the pool, is beautiful. But the staff really made the experience perfect. From the second we arrived, everything we needed was taken care of and the staff seemed genuinely friendly and knowledgeable about the guests. Gustavo helped arrange a wonderful boat day for us. And it’s obvious that all of staff is proud both of Cartagena and the hotel. Rooftop bar is also lovely. This was the best service I have ever experienced while traveling and would highly recommend this hotel.

Rude staff, not a five star experience

TripAdvisor rating 1.0/5

Mariana L TripAdvisor review

The hotel is beautiful, however our experience with the staff was quite unpleasant. Simple requests were met with a very “deal with it yourself” attitude and most of the time the staff wasn’t helpful at all. Not what you’d expect from a five star hotel. The worst part of the experience was with the front desk, where one of the male staff members continuously interrupted and/or actively ignored me while I was explaining a simple problem my family needed help with. It got to a point where I had to directly tell him to stop interrupting me as the entire time I was speaking to him I hadn’t been able to finish a single sentence as he either spoke over me or walked away! I’ve never experienced anything like it, specially in a place like this. I genuinely wonder if we would have been treated the same way if we were a group of men. What a shame. Would not recommend. Began the trip by highly recommending the hotel to my father who is coming at the end of the year and ended by alerting him not to stay there or even use any of their services. Do better!

The service overall was impeccable. Jesus was fabulous ensuring all our needs were met. Great Job

The hotel is beautiful as historic. The service was wonderful and the wonderful staff ensured all our needs were met. It was truly a 5* experience. The 1621 Restaurant was also wonderful with the 10 course pairing dinner for Mother's Day. Can't wait to go back.

Great location, service

I have stayed at Hotel Convento Santa Clara before, in 2012 and this time I noticed that there is room for improvement in the maintenance department, rooms, furniture, bathrooms need maintenance because with use and time they deteriorate, othar than that , good experience
