Very Good 8.0
Great beach hotel
We spent a couple of nights here and were very happy with our choice. Very well situated beside the beach, on the edge of Rodadero. Fairly standard hotel room, great sea views. Excellent restaurant and service. Big pool, although not much shade available.

Great stay
The accommodations were outstanding. We had an ocean view on the 6th floor (top floor) and watched an incredible sunset each night. The location was perfect.

Relaxing stay in Santa Marta
Very nice stay on the beach in nicest area of Santa Marta. Pool was excellent, location to beach access, restaurants, shopping, transportation was excellent. WiFi was very good. Room was good sized and had lovely view of beach and sunsets. The staff was incredibly helpful with all aspects of our trip including local places to check out, tours, local transportation and learning about the history. Breakfast was a highlight with complimentary newspapers, local and Bogota. We always felt safe and secure.

Don’t bother
Can’t understand how this hotel was getting amazing reviews. It’s close to a beach and that’s about it. Outside our room there was some sort of construction work going on really early in the morning. When talking to reception, the lady working behind the desk called Luz said they didn’t know about any construction (even though it was on their premises). Not giving any solitons, my friend had to suggest that she find out and possibly move us to another location. They said they’d find us and let us know. Several hours passed and nothing again. We had to approach them once more and still none the wiser. Very disappointing. Also, free flies were included in the price of breakfast if you paid for it. Hotel is dated and the local area doesn’t have much to offer a paper from a nice restaurant on a cliff top. If you’re looking for more night life..find accommodation closer to Santa Marta centre and Parque los novios.

Poor 2.0

Ups and downs
Good location, staff willing to help, speak Spanish only, the hotel has no hot water and a funky smell in the rooms. The bar staff in the pool is amazing but it leaks water through a crack and flows through th light fittings felt a bit dangerous, but it is the Caribbean and everyone goes with the flow mostly
