Wow! Where do I begin. This was incredible. From the seamless airport transfer all the way to the end of the trip. I can’t even begin to thank the staff for everything they did to make my stay amazing. Jimmy remembered me throughout my whole stay and went above and beyond to always make sure I had everything I needed. Elvis provided a very informative check in and explained everything to me about the area (curfews too!!!) I can’t wait to come back and would ONLY recommend this hotel to anyone looking to visit Cartagena!!!!

Cindy C. Families - 02/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Is it not safe enough dealing with Covid as people from outside that aren’t staying at the hospital come and go all over the hotel. Their restaurant “Jardin” has the worst waiter experience I’ve had in Cartagena Colombia. First and last time I will be staying in this hotel. It was easier as a bridesmaid to Laura Florez to stay in the hotel but next time I will stay in my regular hotel which is Hyatt.

Dear Mrs. C., I would like to apologize for your feeling of regular staff service; I can assure you that this is not the service quality that we strive to provide to our guests. Actually we are used to receive compliments about the warmth and friendliness of our ambassadors from Jardin Restaurant. At Sofitel Legend Santa Clara, we strive to provide the highest quality of service and product. To do so, we welcome each and every comment and take measures to ensure experience we create for our guests is a memorable one. I will share your review with our team. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we look forward to having the opportunity to serve you again in the near future. Sincerely, Daniela Martinez Torres Guest Relations Manager

Excellent experience. Since the moment we arrived to celebrate a wedding everything was spectacular. Our first encounter at the door was with Jimmy, who greeted with the warmest smile and wonderful attitude. The service at every encounter was top notch. Delicious breakfast with typical Colombian delicacies. The room was spacious and the bathroom stocked with Lanvin toiletries. Great A/C and rain-showerhead. Looking forward to staying there again and would highly recommend it.

Dear Juan Orestes O., Thank you for the positive review of our hotel. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services.

The excellent staff at the Sofitel Santa Clara Cartagena was my favorite part of they stay. They can teach a master class on customer service and attention to detail. My favorite guy was Jimmy.

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
