Sofitel Legend Santa Clara
Travel Blogs from Cartagena
... in the world, and we need to long for and strive to live a life anticipating and preparing for the Kingdom of God.
In the afternoon, there was a practice for the Talent show. I had prepared to play national anthems of the countries that were represented at the Feast--Colombia, United States, and Canada. Laura, from Colombia, said she knew how to play the Colombia National anthem on her saxophone. ...
Cartagena was a time for us to chill out on our spending and figure out a way to get out of Colombia. As we were heading for Peru and evidently had managed to end up on the other side of the country, it meant booking a flight to Bogota and an adjoining one to Leticia in the amazon. These flights weren't as cheap as other times of the month due to high season. It also meant that we had to spend 9 days in Cartagena to wait for the cheapest flight.

TravelPod Member ReviewsSofitel Legend Santa Clara Cartagena
The hotels beauty is only outmatched by the personality of the staff. Pool is the centerpiece of a four hundred year old convent now converted to the Sofitel. The rooms are adequate and well outfitted. Negative reviews in Tripadvisor stem from the slight musty smell in-rooms (any tropical climate has this....its very difficult to fight the humidity...perhaps they add air deoderizers?) , but they are very clean, luxuriously outfitted, nice showers, and super comfortable beds. The staff leaves treats like coconut candies and Evian in evenings. Most rooms face the open pool area in the Republican section (newer area). The Colonial section housing the original convent has a small church, two restaurants, business center, meeting rooms, and a beautiful garden with fountains.
