Hotel Capilla del Mar

A Sea View that Never Goes out of Fashion

This hotel has more than stood the test of time, proving over the years that there's no beating a sea view and a beachfront breakfast.

  • This is What We Love

    • The classic architecture, including generous private balconies and a classic rooftop pool * Waking up to an full American breakfast at one of Cartagena's finest beachfront restaurants
    • An affordable hotel in Cartagena that doesn't leave too much of a dent in your wallet
    • Having the Bocagrande beach right on the doorstep and being less than 10 minutes from the old town's cultural attractions
  • What you Need to Know

    • The hotel is owned by the same people that own Hotel Las Americas. Ask if you can spend the day in the beach resort to the north of the city.
    • It's been around the block a few times. It's had a few facelifts but it's still an old hotel.
    • The beach in Bocagrande can be a hectic experience. Choose to sit behind the rows of tents in Capilla del Mar's beach club and you won't be hassled nearly as much by the beach vendors.

    It's name means "chapel of the sea", and despite its advancing years, seaside pilgrims continue to flock to Capilla del Mar'srooftop pool, the comfortable rooms and Capilla de Mar's eternally popular junior suites, that come with their own private balconies, absolutely perfect for pushing the boat out for a romantic weekend in Cartagena.

    What helps this landmark tower stand out from the rest of Bocagrande's older breed of beachfront hotels is the classic architecture and perfectly proportioned rooms.

    Owned by one of Cartagena's most traditional families, a stay in this beachfront beauty, gives a great sense of Cartagena's history as the top tourist destination for Colombians over the years.

    It's very much a local business catering to the local market and we love it for its history, it's privileged position on the Bocagrande promenade and as a budget friendly hotel option that never fails to deliver a top-notch experience.

    If it works don't fix it they say. We'll pray to that. Hallelujah.

LOCATION

  • Bocagrande

    After fifty years at the heart of the city's tourist trade Cartagena's Copacabana is still alive and kicking. The busiest of the city's beach districts has a host of boutiques, bars, spas, restaurants, casinos and cafés vying for your hard-earned pesos. 

    Old 'big mouth' has been the top beach district for most Colombian visitors to Cartagena since American oil executives made the place fashionable in the mid-20th century.

    Almost everyone from Colombia has fond memories of their first Caribbean vacation and it probably included a stay in one of the big hotels found on the beach in Bocagrande. 

    While it might not be the best beach in Colombia, it is the longest stretch of beach in Cartagena's metropolitan area and the combination of beach and historic allure of the center made Bocagrande the tourist Mecca for Colombians from the 1960s onwards.

    Extending five blocks back from the beach, Bocagrande is populated by towers looking west towards the ocean or eastwards at the Bay of Cartagena.

    The skyscrapers are semi-occupied by locals sharing their lofty locales with second homers and a regular flow of tourists on the hunt for self-catering apartments with a sea view and a swimming pool.

    The Avenida San Martin (Cra 2) acts as the main road in to Bocagrande from the old town and as such is lined with beachwear and fashion retail stores, restaurants, cafés, beauty parlours and casinos that cater to the out-of-towners and moneyed residents.

    Some of the city's best traditional restaurants can be found close to the beach catering to the locals. Some of our favourites include: Restaurante Arabe Internacional, Dolce e Salato Restaurante Italiano.
