Reviewed 4 February 2016 via mobile

If you're planning to stay local (go to the beach on Santa Marta, stay at the hotel and go around the town) then this is not the place to go. The beach is a little far (about four blocks away), the meals are nothing outstanding and practically the same every day, the rooms have little light and aren't the best to stay a whole day in it.

But, if you're planning to stay here as a place to sleep and you go to different places everyday (Tayrona Park, Playa Blanca, Taganga Bay, etc.), then you'll be fine. The installations aren't that huge, place is clean, cleaning services are on point every day, service staff is fine, pool is little but clean.

So, this is a nice place to sleep, but the facilities aren't that enjoyable throughout an entire day.

This visit was not as pleasant as the previous one. The hotel seemed dirty and noisy. The service quality decreased. The food tasted like flavorless. The towels had stains and smelled funny. The swimming pool was kind of dirty. What a pity. It used to be a good place.

Given the scarcity of touristic offers for Santa Marta, and the overpriced negatively reviewed existing hotels we took the decision with my wife to book something once we are in Colombia. We did not regret it. In Medellin, we got a great deal for 10 days at Sansiraka- going through a local travel agency- and our expectations have been met. The hotel is located relatively close to the beach, about four blocks; it is very clean and decorated in a nice colonial style. The service was great, everybody is very courteous and attentive. The rooms by the pool are the ones to choose if staying at Sansiraka. Totally recommend it!!!!

Room Tip: get a room by the pool
