The Bovedas de Santa Clara is ideally located in the historic area of Cartagena with views of the ocean and beautiful, modern accommodations. I shared a "suite" with a traveling companion--a...

This beautiful boutique hotel set around an inner courtyard is on the fringe of the Candelaria district and in the heart of the government offices. The restaurant was excellent. I highly recommend the crab bisque, which was so outstanding I had it twice. Although we felt the waiting staff could have been more friendly, we had a wonderful stay.

Beautiful hotel, in the most interesting part of the town. Good service, nice place to relax and get out to walk around the historic centre of Cartagena. It's not very cheap, but certainly worth its price. I would certainly go back to stay at Santa Clara again.
