Really happy with the services, cleanness and attention to detail.

This was a vacation to spend time together with my BF. Our flight arrived 4 hours before check-in time: I didn't exactly get the room I had reserved and paid for, but I was also checked right in and put in a room after an all night "red-eye" flight. The staff at both at this site and the larger main building were attentive, on-the-spot, and genuinely seemed to love their jobs. There is another glowing review here about the Norte manager, Alex. Sure enough, he greeted us first thing with the same offer to contact him with anything we needed. All in all great vacation and we will be back!

Tamaca Torre Norte location is just great. CVery close to the beach, at the end of a busy street full of shops bars and restaurants, but since it is at the end of the street, it is pretty quiet.
Even though the hotel is not precisely a modern building, it is well maintained and the overall design is fine. It seems the hotel has been renovated quite recently. I had a standard room with two beds. The room is big enough, the bathroom is of the right size. Beds are comfortable, but if you are sensitive to cold, you may need to ask an extra blanket, as the aircon is pretty efficient (and silent!! great!).
I could enjoy the buffet breakfast, and the selection of food was great, with a "costeno" touch of local specialties.
But the real value of this hotel is their personel. They have been very friendly and effective. I ordered room service and the food arrived pretty quickly. Also called because I could not get the wifi working, and someone appeared in less than 2 minutes!

Alex was key to making our stay enjoyable. He consistently and diligently went out of his way to provide us a good experience. He gave us a fair rate even though our VRBO didn't work out. He even took us to his favorite cove to snorkel on his day off! Though he's been in Santa Marta for just a few months, he already has a deep expertise of the area, what to see/do, how not to get cheated, where things are going, etc. The rest of the staff, many of whom he manages, are exceptionally friendly as well. Even if you aren't staying here, poke in and ask for him.

The hotel was comfortable. The rooms facing the water have balconies and good views, but can be noisy. The rooms in the back are simple, comfortable, and quiet in exchange for the view. You get access to the pool at the main Tamaca hotel which is very nice, and some beach chairs and tents as well.

We were taken care of by the manager, Alex, and all the staff. We stayed in room 501, a large suite with beautiful views of the beach off the balcony, comfy bed, and hot shower. We entertained our group in our room nighy. You get all the access to Tamaca amenities, including the pool. Its cheaper than the beach sister hotel. If you need quiet, spend the extra at the sister hotel as the street gets roudy at night and morning (car horns are heavily used). We were always greeted and cared for by the staff like Boris, Diego, Ramon, etc. If you want "luxury", this is the best option by FAR
