I arrived here after running away from Dreamer and Drop Bear. This hotel is very central with a quiet patio and nice room with a/c or fan. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is excellent. Recommended

Really friendly people, very helpful and the room is good and clean. In the city center, but peaceful and quiet, perfect for exploring the area. You can get a free bicycle and the breakfast in the morning is also included, definitely recommended to stay here.

We stayed one evening and found the experience to be average. The room was very hot, and advice from the receptionist on dinner options turned out to be sub standard. Though its in a historic part of town, its in a less lit and interesting part of the city. We felt much more comfortable walking around more populated areas with...

The hotel is super! The staff work very hard at keeping the rooms and grounds very clean. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and Jorge is a fantastic resource for Santa Marta.

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights, and I've read some of the negative reviews. So... The only bites I got were from mosquitoes outside a juice joint. The bed was lovely and comfortable, with a foam mattress on top of the ordinary one. The room was spotless; the maid does a fantastic job, pretty much single handedly. ALL...

This is a great place to stay in Santa Marta. We stayed twice between the trek to Ciudad Perdida. Very clean, good rooms and comfy beds with a great courtyard area with pool with shade to relax / sunbathe. The staff are fantastic especially Jorge on reception and the lovely Senoras who serve the tasty breakfast. Nice mixed crowd of...

During the last week of our 3 month trip my morning sickness really kicked and fortunately this was a lovely place to relax and unwind. As I was unable to muster the energy to leave the hotel, I very much enjoyed having the comforts of the outdoor space with hammocks, swimming pool, mini-fridge in the room, snacks for sale, books...

I liked: Hotel located in the heart of historic downtown. Nice people attending; since the very beginning, when I contacted the hotel by phone, they were very gentle. They allowed to pay at check in. The room I've got was very good, tiny, but very nice and comfortable. it's got either options of aa or fan. The bed was very...

Stayed 3 nights after booking, a local friend wasn't impressed with the area , said it bordered on the dangerous. Ok there were many prostitutues hanging around the end of the street, but I survived. Breakfast wasn't great, charged 85000 per night , rooms adequate . I asked to use MarSol to get me to Cartagena and they recommended another...
