Great Beach and luxurious hotel in Baru

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Javiquin9845 TripAdvisor review

I would like to recommend this to any traveler looking for a family friendly, beautiful beach and secluded environment. Our family received excellent service from Elio providing paddleboard service on the beach, Alejandro providing beach towels and umbrella service also on the beach, Claudia providing wonderful food and beverage service while enjoying the beach, Victor in the grill restaurant Bahia, who went above and beyond by providing a class to our family on how they make frozen drinks and lemonades. Even when we experienced some hiccups, like our room not being ready, Daniela and The rest of the staff made corrective steps immediately and accommodated us smoothly and quickly in a new room without extended waiting. We also were given wonderful tech service when we had issues with the phone app to serve as a room key back up. The service was great, food was excellent, the staff and team paid attention to detail in their professionalism and service. The only reason I would not provide five stars for the location is for the land access, it’s a rough road with an hour and a half drive from Cartagena. Hopefully the government improves the roads! Would definitely recommend visiting and we plan to return :-)

Solo Trip at Sofitel Baru

tricial440 Solo travel - TripAdvisor review

I had an amazing solo trip at Sofitel Baru. From the beginning to the end it was so relaxing and peaceful. Everyone at the hotel was so kind and professional. They always remembered my name and greeted me with a smile. The resort is easy to get around but at night it can be intimidating to walk alone. I was so thankful for Cristian who worked at the reception area who always offered to give me a ride in the golf cart to my destination. Even walking from the pool area back to my room, he was so gracious to stop and offer me a ride. I enjoyed talking with him as he answered all my questions and appreciate his help during my stay. I was able to visit the spa and Laura Burrios gave me all the information I needed. She was so kind and helpful when I was choosing what I wanted. The prices were very reasonable as well. I received a perfect massage by Laura Castellon. It wasn’t too soft or too hard. She has amazing hands that worked my full body massage to the tee. Great job!! I ate at the Bahia, Humo, and Calablanca restaurants. The experience is 5 star. The meals all come with a complimentary starter of bread or a delicious small treat and the presentation is top notch. Thank you so much to everyone that worked in these areas especially Emerson Diego, Dayanira, and the amazing bartender staff. The hotel is absolutely stunning and the rooms were spacious and clean. I stayed in the Prestige Suite and I have no regrets. All the pools have great views and lots of lounge chairs and cabanas. If you are looking for peacefulness and romantic aesthetic this is your place. My only con was how far it is from Cartagena center where the action is. It’s at least 90 minutes by car and the hotel does not have any nightlife activities or shows for entertainment but other than that I was a very happy guest. I

We had a great time visiting for my husband's birthday. Mariana Barrios provided us with excellent customer service, and we left very satisfied. She answered all our questions and provided outstanding service, making everything sophisticated yet consistently simple. The quiet at night during weekdays is amazing and feels very relaxing. I like the variety of activities the hotel offers and how well the gardens are taken care of. Additionally, the sunsets were the best we’ve ever seen, and the staff was outstanding. It’s a great place for couples and families; it’s pretty relaxing, isolated, and calm. We had the chance to eat at the Casablanca Restaurant and the food cart by the beach. Both services were great; I only wish they were a bit quicker.

Spent three nights attending a destination wedding. A very lovely venue, but for the heat and humidity. Getting there by land is challenging as the road is partly in disrepair. However, these hiccups do not take away from this place being a world class property with an amazing and welcoming staff. Outstanding facilities and overall service. From the moment you arrive you are treated as if you are the owner of the entire property. Everyone smiles and is ready to help. I would dare to say that it is overstaffed. The views of Cartagena and the Caribbean ocean are spectacular as is the quality of the room, bedding and amenities in general. Highly recommended but be prepared to handle the heat!
