    We really enjoyed our stay at the GHL Relax Hotel Costa Azul. The hotel was very nice and clean. The staff was very friendly. I would like to give a special recognition to Orlando and Luis who worked at the restaurant for their outstanding customer service.

    Best Place to stay in Santa Marta
    This is the best BARGAIN in Colombia. By far, the best place to stay in Santa Marta. It's clean. It's pretty. The staff is wonderful and caring. Always smiling. The beach is beautiful and EMPTY> You can't beat this place...why pay more to be at a Marriott or Holiday INN when you can pay $50 a night and get a free breakfast, free wifi...clean rooms with increidble views?

    Great escape
    Great hotel it is near the airport so it is very convenient. But it is far away from any town or city. So if you want an experience where you’re remote and like being in one spot then this is the place. Going into town to buy things or go to a restaurant is a $10 can ride each way.
    Karyn, us6 night trip
    Very Good 8.0
    Decent stay.
    It's great family hotel. A lot of activities for kids. As for the location it was only 5 minutes from the airport but there is nothing else around there. So if you are not planning on leaving the hotel it's great but everything else is a 30 minute taxi ride away. Even to get something simple to eat. The hotel staff was friendly. The rooms are a good size but the beds were too soft for me at least. And one thing I didn't like is they charged me for half a day because I asked to check out 2 hours later because.y flight was delayed. And they did not need the room for anyone else. I know this because I had 2 adjoining rooms and told me they can only give me one room because the other was taken.

    Nice room
    Ants in room was a small problem. Air con worked well, great views, ask for a room with balcony in the new tower - they aren’t damp!

    Great Pool
    Nice hotel, large size rooms. The location is close to the airport and on the beach. The ability to walk to town is not a possibility, you must taxi. Nice pool and children's area.

    Great hotel
    Great hotel. Had a great time. Check in was fast, great service. I requested on my booking infant crib but they say they did not have the request, however they solve it right away. Room was clean, good space. Restaurant is a bit overpriced but the food and service is very good. Is far from everything. Pools are great.
