Great condo for a couple. We brought an 11 year old with who slept on the hide-a-bed which worked out fine. The apartment has everything you need, is modern, and very comfortable. The condo has access to 3 great pools which border one of the nicest sections of beach in Cartagena. The only drawback is the distance to supermarket, clock tower, etc. but you are close to the airport. So it's best to stock up on supplies or have a plan if going into town.

“Excellent Condo with Beautiful Grounds!”
Reviewed 29 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This place is truly amazing. It is as advertised 100% when it comes to pictures and looks the same. Overall i give it 8.5 out of 10 and the 1.5 point lost is due to convenience/necessity items missing as explained further below.

The building is new and located adjacent (connected) to the Holiday Inn. This makes it easy to get a taxi as they are always out there and breakfast in Holiday Inn is great convenience. Taxi is 10,000 - 15,000 COP to the old city ($5 -$8 USD). If you choose to get breakfast in Holiday Inn DO NOT GET THE BUFFET! Buffet is $25-$30 a person whereas you can order À la carte from the menu and pay only $20 for two people ($15/person) for more food then you can eat. Buffet makes no sense and is waste of money.

The grounds are amazing. The Holiday Inn next door looks shameful when compared to this condo grounds. They have one tinny pool whereas this condo has 3 pools which are huge. The beach is extremely clean and nice and is accessible from the back of the building directly. This was not apparent from the ad and is a great feature! Bucagrande is on the other side of the city and suppose to be main tourist area and staying area however the beach there is in poor condition, little privacy, road is right next to beach and cars going by so i prefer this much more then bucagrande. Not to mention Bucagrande buildings are older and run down compare to these Ultra condos.

We hired a cleaning lady for $10 USD a day to clean and do laundry and she is great. We used her two or three times during our stay. She doesn't need to come every day. There is laundry in the condo making it very convenient.

Down sides and Negative things:

Be prepared to walk into an empty condo when it comes to personal effects and basic necessities! There isn't even coffee, tea or sugar or basic necessities like shampoo and conditioner! Basic stuff you need and will find in any hotel is missing in here as its empty condo when it comes to those things. There is no coffee machine and you will heat water in a pot many times as coffee mugs are tinny! Two sips and its done. There is no kettle either. When we left we left behind the coffee and sugar we bought so that next guests can use it and i hope its there for them as it makes no sense to have guest buying 1KG of sugar, bottle of shampoo they wont use but a little and many other things. This should be provided.

Safe doesn't work. The instructions make no sense and not even Anna (person looking after the place) knew how to work it. She had to give us the master key. There is no button on bottom of door which your apparently suppose to press to reset code so no sure where those instructions came from.

Extra Info:

This is not relevant to condo but rather the city. If you don't speak Spanish your in TROUBLE! You should consider going somewhere else. People do NOT speak English down there and NOTHING is in English. You wont even be able to order a meal unless you know Spanish! If it wasn't for my Colombian girlfriend i would have had a horrible time as you can't communicate with anyone including cabs or waiters. In fact this it the #1 complaint with most people and what is driving down overall tourism in Colombia which should in fact be great place to visit otherwise.

If you are a certified scuba diver then make sure you go! Corals are plentiful and beautiful as well as lot of ship wrecks. Food is relatively cheap and costs $100,000 COP ($50 USD) for two people to eat in a restaurant a complete meal that would run you $200-300 in Canada/US.

-Horse Back Riding on beach is $15 USD per person for half hour and you actually ride on your own not get walked.
-1 hr massage on beach is $20 USD
-JetSki is $30 for half hour.
-Scuba is $100 for two dives (for certified divers)
-Chariot ride in old city is $15 per person but if you negotiate before the ride you can get cheaper if large group otherwise its too much as its per person. Make them give you flat rate as riding 10 people or 1 is same thing for them and requires nothing more on their part.

I looked all over and this was the best place i found. Its luxurious, new, beautiful and priced properly compared to other places. Its much better then getting a hotel with a tinny room for same price (or more in some cases). They just need to provide the necessity items and it would be 10/10!
