Fairly priced, the Camali Hotel is extremely well maintained, I'm a carpenter and have worked a lot in propertym so I know how hard it is to keep up these standards, my partner and I were both impressed, no crumbling walls, no damp patches, the paintwork tidy, the woodwork to a relatively high finish. The rooms are kept excellently.

The place is simple and beautiful, with a courtyard garden, there is no restaurant although there is a breakfast service (basic, but tasty) included in the room cost.

I could tell the staff are happy working there, which usually translates to them bring treated fairly and kindly, which, believe me is more than can be said for many of businesses in the region; the result is a fantastic and friendly atmosphere around the hotel.

You can pick up a cold drink from the fridge which runs on a trust basis, which again adds to the general good vibes of the place.

If you're looking for a relaxing city break, this is the one.

I stayed here for a week after injuring my back on a boat trip to Tayrona from Santa Marta. It is a lovely modest hotel full of caring staff and delightfully designed. It has a lovely though a bit chilly swimming pool and plenty of seating around it. It has a little honesty bar where you just take and sign. Breakfast is a little repetitive but hey it isn’t an expensive hotel.
It is by parque cundí, a 20 minute walk from the historic quarter if you don’t take a taxi and 30 minutes by car from Rodadero beach
The parque is surrounded by local restaurants and at weekends it is packed with tables everywhere. I had a lovely burger at La Gloriosa. There is a marvellous pizza place, Little Ouzo, - 10 minutes walk away.
Everyone all around was really friendly

Very nice. Friendly staff and nice rooms, not luxurious but clean and overall nice. The hotel cats and dog, as well as the turtle (who is not as keen on socializing) adds to the atmosphere. It takes a little bit of walking to get to centre, but taxis are cheap too. Otherwise the nearby restaurant MoMa is good but crowded, during peak hours.

Everything was great. This is an fabulous oasis just on the edge of the historical centre of Santa Marta. Everything was great. The staff were super friendly and helpful, the gardens and pool area were amazing and the rooms were great. The breakfast was fresh and tasty and always served with a smile. I have stayed here twice. once for four days. It was my base for everything; Tayrona trips, Santa Marta Historico, and the Ciudad Perdida (Lost City). And I stayed when I returned from the lost city. I could not be happier with my choice. They don't serve dinner at the hotel buy the park just outside is surrounded by local restaurants and filled with locals especially on the weekend.

Beautiful hotel located 5 mins in taxi from centro histórico/parque de novios.
This is hands down one of the most charming hotels I’ve stayed at. The interior courtyard has a mini rainforest area and a spacious pool. The property has 3 cats and even tortoises wandering around, so if you like animals this place is for you.
The rooms are clean, the breakfast is fine and the staff is friendly.
The neighborhood is quiet and safe to walk around in evening time. Also there is a few restaurants right next to the hotel.
I paid around 51 USD for one night which is good value considering the high quality of the hotel.
I would definitely stay here again.

Serene hotel with a nice pool. Good shower. Comfortable bed. Working AC. Nice seating areas/balconies to chill. Great breakfast (salty crepes with eggs were a nice change to the typical Colombian breakfast we had everywhere else). Friendly and helpful staff. Good location, quiet but close enough to the city center. It was convenient that they also offered snacks/light food on the property. Otherwise very good burger place near the hotel (Gloriosa hamburguesa). We would definitely stay here again.

Everything was just perfect at Camali’s hotel.
The room was comfortable and clean, the staff was super friendly and extremely helpful.
I would say it’s the best place to stay in Santa Marta. It feels like a mini resort where you can relax and enjoy the swimming pool. Highly recommended.

Camali Hotel is paradise. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Santa Marta. The staff are lovely, the pool area is a tropical oasis with beautiful palm trees, the rooms are comfortable, and the breakfast is great. The area around the hotel is cute and you can walk to a small park, restaurants, ATM, and a grocery store. The front desk can call you a taxi to town.
