The hotel is beautiful and customer service is excellent however the rooms are very basic for a 5-star hotel. The sauna is not included. I was very disappointed to learn I had to pay extra to use the sauna. Most 5-star hotel offer this service complimentary.

Overall we had a fabulous stay at the Sofitel. However, I spent months trying to make reservations through the concierge (as did my husband) and did not receive assistance with restaurant reservations. Once on site, I found the butler and concierge to be very helpful. Secondly, we booked 6+ months in advance and requested rooms on a high floor overlooking the pool. All rooms were overlooking the pool. One was on 2 and one was a “room” that was extremely tiny for what we were paying. I don’t even think it was a separate room but an add on to a suite. The hotel eventually comped is for a tour, but my preference would have been for a room that we paid for...

My family and I really enjoyed our time at Hotel Santa Clara. This is the reason we always come back to the hotel. However, in such as high season external people should not be allowed during peak hours. 12PM to 4PM. You have to fight for tables when a group of external people take a full table and chairs while paying customer are left without those amenities.

Charles M Solo travel - 06/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

I've stayed twice now at this location. This time I stayed three nights from December 23 to 26, 2019. It was a magical experience to spend the Christmas holiday at this hotel. The courtyard was beautifully lit at night, and holiday music played on the sound system int the evening. And all the staff are very kind, gracious and welcoming. A fine six course meal was served to guests on Christmas Eve. If you can reserve a space for the holidays next year, I would highly recommend it.

Anonymous Solo - 02/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Pre-trip I had an amazing experience working with Leslie Perez at the concierge desk who helped me plan all of my excursions and dinner reservations. She went above and beyond to find me a volunteer project during my stay at my request. I was unfortunately unable to do it given that I was unprepared for the heat in Cartagena so cancelled it before my arrival. This along with the other assistance she gave just made my trip so much better so I'd like to publicly thank her as well as the other members who assisted at the concierge desk. The food at the hotel was amazing. Decor for the holidays was beautiful. Location of the hotel perfect. All of the staff was friendly and helpful. My only small issue was having to keep the room at 23 degrees Celsius in order to avoid condensation. I hate having to use air conditioning at night so I always felt cold. I tried turning on the heat. The beds I felt were a small bit uncomfortable for some reason.
