We were able to rent the entire villa for our group trip. Sneyder reached out a few days before our arrival to see if we needed anything from a ride from the airport to activities around the city. Both he and Erick were our two main contacts and they really took care of us and were always willing to help. The villa was a fantastic space with breakfast served every morning. The rooms were all setup well, clean and just great all the way around. Having the small pool in the courtyard was fantastic and perfect for a small gathering and party when you have the place to yourselves. From a location standpoint, it was an excellent spot. You could walk to anywhere in the old city very easily, but it was just enough off the busy part of the city that there were no late night disturbances. Thanks to all the staff at Casa BuGo for a great trip!!!
Great house, great location (just a few blocks from the walled city), great staff, very good value. We never met our host Victoria, but she was quick to help when we asked for her to arrange transportation. The house is beautiful and huge - it can easily accommodate 6 couples or 10-11 friends (one or two of the rooms might be a little small for friends to share). There are several area to congregate, including the pool (in the interior courtyard) and the rooftop deck with hottub. Just a few minor issues to be aware of - the water pressure can be pretty low, but I think this is an issue throughout town, the WiFi signal can be weak in some places in the (huge) house, and finally the (fantastic) staff doesn't speak any English. We used google translate when we needed to communicate, but that sometimes leads to less than perfect translations. I also emailed Victoria a couple of times when the messages were more complicated and asked her to convey them to the staff. All in all, I would love to return to Cartagena, and if I come with a large group again this house will be my first choice.
