I have been staying in Santa Clara multiple times and I new it would be a safe place during the pandemia. They have done a truly remarkable effort to keep costumers safe. No ontered our roo during our 5 day stay. The restaurants are well managed, with distance among tables and excellent service. My only doubt is the pool atmosphere. It was crowded and did not feel safe.

The handle on the faucet sink would not stay on and kept turning off by itself. This was never fixed. It looks like the handle was too heavy.

All I can say is "wow"! I was not expecting this hotel to exceed my expectations. The room was beautiful and clean, the food was amazing and reasonably priced and the pool area was large and relaxing. But above all else, the service was absolutely outstanding. The staff were all so friendly and always eager to help. From the front desk staff, to the waiters, to the pool staff, and cleaning staff, they were all just so incredibly helpful and nice. I felt so safe and well taken care of there. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Cartagena.
