6/10 Good

Friendly staff but lacks an elevator
The hotel has modern facilities which seemed to have been remodeled recently. However, it is a shame that it doesn't have an elevator for people who cannot walk up the stairs. This is the main reason why I would not choose the hotel again. I would have to say that its staff were very friendly and tried to accommodate our needs. But I would just advice the hotel to schedule any drilling or hammering after 10amto ensure guests can sleep.I was awaken before 7am two days in a row because of this....

enjoyable stay staggered due to time off for lost city trek and national park visit. We were able to leave our luggage there during these periods. Friendly reception staff, although English limited
Verified guest review

4/10 Fair

Not that good
They collected the payment during check in!! This hotel counts everything. They came to our room and counted one by one everything in the minibar. Then at breakfast they count piece by piece what they put on your plate. You are not allowed to take food yourself, they serve you. Coffee was always cold. No elevators. No hot water. Overpriced for Colombia and for Santa Marta. Wifi doesnt work that well on the third floor rooms.

Close to the beach and clean.
The Hotel staff are mostly friendly and helpful. The Hotel is clean, things in the minibar tend to be old though. They did not want to change my booking to one person less when I arrived at the Hotel. The beds were a bit hard. Could not use the pool after like 8 or 9 pm.
