My husband and I stayed here in the Presidential Suite for 3 weeks on our first visit to Colombia in May/June 2022. I was impressed with the room, light and airy and a very comfortable bed with good pillows too so a very good sleep and it is all kept spotlessly clean by the hotel cleaning team.
I think what makes this hotel special are the staff and the really exemplary level of service, inside it feels like a little oasis of calm and its refreshing to find such enthusiastic and helpful attitudes from every single member of staff.
Our package included a continental breakfast which was amazing, every morning a smiling girl would deliver to our room a fresh fruit plate, yoghurt with cereal and a choice of hot food including local dishes as well as eggs any way you like or pancakes with bacon. I recommend the Colombian Cayeye and Arepas which are delicious. You can choose to eat on the terrace outside or inside your room.
The hotel itself is in a great location for exploring the town and surrounding area, it is not quiet in Santa Marta and there is always noise outside the hotel but inside the room it is sound proofed and very quiet.
A huge Thank You to all the hotel staff for a brilliant stay, five star service.

Welcoming, professional, competent, English speaking staff at this small hotel with 2, yes TWO, pools and a lot of outdoor space to relax. The rooms are huge, beds and linens are fantastic. Hot water and kitchen basics (2 burner stove, fridge, microwave, basic - and I do mean basic - kitchenware) plus you can use the washing machine for 20mil. We stayed here for 5 weeks and it is close to the Centro, which is safe, close to grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, and the shore. We felt very safe at all times, although we don't stay out late. The staff will also advise you if something is not safe, like walking to Rodadero, which is much appreciated. Room 203 has a terrific private shaded balcony and we enjoyed having that additional space. STAY HERE!

Carlos, Yair, Indira and the whole staff are extremely attentive and helpful. They let you leave your luggage before checkin and after checkout and someone is at the front desk all night. The room was large, clean and very comfortable bed and great hot shower. Breakfast was an omelette, tortillas, homemade jam, fruit, juice, coffee and a fried patacon (plantain). I don't eat gluten or dairy so there may be other options (e.g. toast, beans, maybe pancakes) if you do. It's about a 10 minute walk from the main plaza. This makes it quieter than it would be if you were closer to the center. However, if walking back late in the evening, some of the street and another street around the corner seemed deserted and a bit run down. It's probably fine but you would want to be aware of your surroundings. The pool is small but very nice and refreshing. I would gladly stay there again. Muchas gracias Carlos, Yair y Indira!

Stayed here a week and very much enjoyed our time here. Our room was very large and quiet. We stayed on the ground floor at the back.
The staff were very nice and helpful.
Seemed safe to walk to and from the main restaurant and bar area at night.
On the downside they provide a coffee machine in the room, but charge for the coffee pods, and they do not provide any drinking water (you can't drink the water in Santa Marta). And if you stay a while and want the room cleaned, you have to pay for the cleaning.
But otherwise it's a great place to stay.

Wow! I absolutely loved this hotel. The staff were so helpful and efficient, the rooms were simply amazing (really huge and so many amenities!) and the breakfast was excellent and so tasty. We stayed here before and then after our Ciudad Perdida Hike, and it was certainly just what we needed afterwards - a little bit of pure indulgence and luxury! A real sanctuary and perfectly located in Santa Marta. Highly recommend - you could never be disappointed!

We really enjoyed staying in the private presidential suite with private terrace. It was so relaxing. A lovely lounger, two comfy chairs and a lovely outside dining area. There was some great views over the city.
The room itself was spacious. A great room for dancing!
Bare in mind it's two single beds, so if you're a couple you need to push together, but this is no biggy. Beds were very comfortable.
I liked the simple clean decor. Kitchen was great to.
They also have a tempting mini bar.
Only gripe is that they charge for coffee pods. I think a simple thing like coffee or tea should be complimentary.
We actually didn't want to leave. We wanted to go back to stay again but fully booked. No wonder!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights. The room was so spacious with a fully equipped kitchen and a huge bed! The tv also had Netflix which was amazing. Also can’t forget about the 2 beautiful pools- one downstairs and the other upstairs. The first 2 nights we stayed here was before we hiked to Cabo San Juan in Tayrona National Park and the hotel let us keep our suitcases there whilst we left for one night which was very helpful. They also organised a transport for us to get to the start of the hike as well. When we came back the next day, we were exhausted, hot and sweaty and when we arrived they gave us cold fresh juice and gave us the same room that we had before. They also helped us with our laundry. Honestly, there’s nothing like coming back to a clean, comfortable and cozy bed after 2 days of hiking, and hotel cactus was the best for that. We were so tired that night that they even helped us ring up a pizza delivery place and ordered dinner for us to be delivered to our room. So nice ! To top it off we were catching a night bus the next night to Medellin so they let us stay at the hotel all day to use their facilities while we waited till we needed to leave. This hotel is so friendly and warm and I would definitely recommend! The only very small thing I would say is that it’s not located near the beach and it’s in a little bit of a dodgy street (I didn’t feel safe walking around with my handbag). It’s about 6 blocks away from the beach, but it’s also only 3 blocks away from carrera 3 which was the hustle and bustle of Santa Marta. Other than that the hotel is perfect and so friendly and I would love to go back!

Really awesome all around. Clean, modern facilities, with interesting architecture. The people really make the difference, and the employees were exceptional.

I left my wallet in a taxi cab (I retrieved it, PTL!), and the individuals at reception spent an hour on helping me get it back. They didn't whine or roll their eyes or complain about it. They weren't judgmental at all. In the heat of the moment, they even brought me a glass of delicious juice, at exactly the right time of anxiety, heat, and thirst. The whole experience was awful, but the employees did everything they could to make it less horrible. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

If you are in Santa Marta, this is the place to stay. It's decently priced, and it's awesome all around...clean, modern, good air conditioning, and spectacular people.
