Nice resort, food needs improvement
Nice resort with some nice amenities. The food isn’t great though and it’s over priced so I recommend eating off the resort.

A First Class Luxury Resort
This place is amazing and our stay was great. Best place to stay in the Santa Marta area. Irotama Resort has several hotel buildings a mile nice sandy beach. We stayed in the Irotama Reservado which is the newest hotel. We will go again!

New administration with not so good changes.
The hotel has a new administration, usually, we know there will be changes but we all expect changes for good and this was not the case. To begin with, price of the buffet increased almost 50% with out mayor changes. Not enough waiters at the pool zone, we asked for something to eat from the pool restaurant and it took almost an hour to get a sandwich and a burger. At the restaurant “Luruaco” they charged me a glass of soda for the price of a bottle, even though the menu say that the price is for a bottle they will give you only a glass. During my checkout, I requested to revise my restaurant/bar checks and to my surprise, they could not find them, they had a box with tons of checks all tangled so they had to revise each of them trying to find mines. After 1 hour waiting, they could not find all of them. We have been at this hotel many times and everything was perfect, but, sadly not this time.

Small disaster turned into big problem
It was a disaster because no one knew about our booking, check in took more than an hour, the room wasn’t what we asked (and they didn’t even explained that), we arrived at midnight and cradle for the baby was offered to be delivered in the morning (!!!!), next morning (720am) they called and woke up us all to say our real room was ready to move but it took 5 hours more to actually give it to us (“it required cleaning”)... bad management of a non so difficult to handle situation
