2 STAR HOTEL ON THE BEACH
Horrible room facing parking lot. No options for upgrade to a pool facing room or beach. Elevator super small. Very basic room can do better in an upper scale hotel for the money. Breakfast is served in a freezing cold no windows conference room second floor. Continental style breakfast. DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL

Good 6.0
Work to do in Estelar Santa Marta
The personnel of the Hotel was amazing in their hospitality and willingness to help, but the beds were hard. We know the difference between plush, firm and hard, and ours were just hard and uncomfortable. Also the food and drinks could be better. Overall they lacked spark and complexity.

Great stay and great hotel
Hotel is good, great service, very very friendly staff. Many activities in case you don't want to go out. My and my family's only complain is the many cats running errands around the restaurant and drinking water from the pool near the restaurant. Who knows what else they do in that pool. Please if you do not allow pets, please, please, please get those cats out.

Poor 2.0
La peor experiencia!
Es un hotel viejo y descuidado. Las camas y la ropa de cama son viejas. El estado del baño era deplorable, inclusuve se inundó un día. La comida en el restaurante es carísima y mala. Las piscinas son viejas, se ve que no les hacen mantenimiento. Lo único bueno es la playa. Dicen que es un hotel 4 estrellas, pero en realidad no llega ni a 2 estrellas. Publicidad falsa y engañosa. En las fotos se ve todo muy bonito, pero la realidad es totalmente diferente. Una porquería!
