Presiding over a prime stretch of sandy beach, the Hilton is the perfect place to base yourself on a visit to the Caribbean gem of Cartagena. Surrounded by sea on three sides, it’s a blissful location that also offers easy access to the historic walled city and its architectural treasures. The airport is just 10km away, and parking is available should you be renting a car.
Packed with amenities and home comforts, the contemporary rooms and suites here all offer a view of the sea from the vantage point of the El Laguito Peninsula. There are 341 to choose from, decorated in calming colours that complement your environment. King and queen beds, panoramic windows and LCD TVs create a chic look, while stylish bathrooms, rain showers and lazy armchairs are all handy modern touches.
Relax in one of three pools dotted around the considerately landscaped grounds, then keep up your fitness regime in the well-equipped gym or head to the solarium or beauty salon for a spot of pampering. Kids are always kept well entertained, and facilities include a games room, playground and outdoor tennis court. For exploring further afield, just ask staff at the tour desk for the best options around.
For a taste of authentic Colombian cuisine, look no further than Las Chivas restaurant, where the talented chefs use a variety of local flavours and ingredients. Its bright and elegant design and artworks are matched only by the splendid sea views and airy outdoor terraces. Gourmet à la carte dining and buffets are available. If you want a slice of Italy, then Pizza al Forno overlooks the pool and has a wood-fired oven; and you can be sure of a great cocktail at the Pool Bar.
