This was definitely a good choice of hotel after my wife I had had spent the previous 9 days staying in 3 different hotels across Colombia. We did have a small problem when we first checked in as they didn't seem to have our reservation and they could have handled the situation much better. They had rooms available but continued...

This was such a great beach resort with their pool that overlooked the ocean. Many people on the beach and the hotel had a shady area for guests on the beach. The rooms were comfortable with nice views. We had lunch there and the food was ok. Nice neighborhood for walking around and shopping. Food court with many food trucks...

Great location on the beach and close to restaurants and shopping. There is a cool food truck court up the street to the right as you leave the hotel. About a 10 minute walk. Excellent pool with full bar service. Right on a nice beach for swimming and people watching. Great staff. Food could be better, is not bad.

We had a room on the top floor with a GREAT view of the bay and beach. The infinity pool was spectacular, and the integrated children's pool was perfect for our new swimmers. The staff was very helpful, and the included breakfast and dinners were delicious. They served a nice blend of traditional Colombian foods and local options. We would...

Hotel has great friendly staff. Bathroom are very clean. However, beds are very hard and uncomfortable. A little over priced, rooms have extremely old furniture and falling apart. There is NO identified smoking area for smokers. Which is not cool for smokers who are on vacation and want to relax. Overall, this is great hotel and I recommend it.

I searched a lot for hotels in Santa Marta and decided I wanted to be on the beach in the safest area - hence Rodadero. Hotel Tamaca was as expected - a buffet breakfast that was good and plentiful, an amazing pool, beach access and comfortably sized rooms. My only complaint is you cannot charge anything to your room unless,...

The room in the last floor - highly recommended- was new and nite. The.view on the Santa Marta bay astonishing. The breakfast in the morning was not so top bit this is not so important on a simply night stop over on the way to final destination.
