For travelers visiting Cartagena in a group and looking for a place to stay that feels like home but with luxury service and high-quality amenities, Casa María is the place. This private converted colonial house caters to an exclusive crowd, and it is possible to rent either individual rooms or the entire building. The first floor has a beautiful swimming pool surrounded by tropical shrubbery, a large living area with sofas, a wide-screen television, an iPod dock, and a dining area next to the kitchen.
The second floor houses the climate-controlled guest rooms, which are equipped with modern amenities such as televisions, iPod docks and minibars, but maintain colonial elegance with antique furnishings, luxury bedding and comfortable seating areas. Looking out over the tiled roofs of Cartagena's Old City on the roof terrace, guests can enjoy sun loungers, a fridge and an outdoor shower. Staff members are on-call all day to provide comprehensive assistance, from arranging tours to organizing massage services and making cocktails.

Food & Beverage
The house has a team of chefs on-call at all times to cater to guests' culinary whims. This includes one who specializes in vegetarian food, and others adept at cooking Colombian, Caribbean and international cuisine.
