Casa Don Sancho
Boutique hotel overlooking the Caribbean
Casa Don Sancho is a lovely boutique hotel towards the edge of the walled city but within easy reach of everything Cartagena has to offer.
This is a tall townhouse with six bedrooms spread over three floors. Greenery hangs down from the wraparound balcony, tumbling down to the ground floor where you’ll find a small shaded pool.
Rooms are bright and fresh with lots of natural materials and neutral colours. There is a lovely living room and library which leads onto a dining room where a large table is set up for breakfast. Shuttered windows look out over Calle de Don Sancho.
The small rooftop terrace is the perect place to watch the sunset. In one direction you have the colourful spire of Cartagena Cathedral and the high rises of Boca Grande in the distance, and in the other you have the pale pink facade of the theatre, beyond which are the vast waters of the Caribbean.
