I would like to start by saying that my experience at Grand Marina Suites was nothing short of AMAZINGGGG!!! If you are coming to Santa Marta and want to know where to stay, this is your place!

Location: The location was central and walking distance to everything. The grocery market was literally one block away, the mariner dock was one block away and the historic center was about 4 blocks away. Keep in mind that their blocks are very short in distance. My wife and I both felt safe here and never had a problem walking the streets. We felt like locals to a certain degree.

Aesthetics: The apartment was modern, clean and spacious. Living room, dining area, separate bedroom and bathroom plus a full kitchen and laundry machine. Everything was well stocked (laundry detergent, glassware, and other essential dishes).

Amenities: I purchased the in-room 60 minute massage which was so relaxing and convenient (as well as inexpensive). The pool and pool bar was one of my favorites. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was great and I definitely enjoyed more than once. I didn't get a chance to use the gym but it was nice and private.

Staff: Couldn't have been any better in my opinion. I was able to communicate with them at any given time through What'sApp. They were able to assist me with booking the in-room massage, scheduling my shuttle to and from the airport, excursions, find local restaurants and directions to places nearby for sightseeing. They were so pleasant, spoke English, and make sure we were taken care of during our stay.

The Only Con: I could hear kids crying on my floor because the hallways were small (not the apartment) so during my massage I was interrupted for a little.

Overall: 5/5 for this property and experience!! I will be staying here whenever I decide to return to Santa Marta.

This is the best place in all of Santa Marta. It is tastefully designer furnished. I like all the little touches of a well-managed place, like little pouches of the local gourmet coffee in the well-equipped kitchen, the luxurious white cotton sheets, and the fluffy white towels. Everything is spotlessly clean. The front desk staff speaks some English and the manager who seems to be always on call speaks fluent English which is an absolute rarity in this town. I have stayed in Santa Marta for almost three months and checked out a number of accommodations. The swimming pool which is shared with the Marriot hotel is comfortably large for even more serious swimmers. If one does not want to leave the building there is access to the Marriot restaurant. But the place is only a short walk to the famous restaurant square Plaza de Novios. The supermarket Carulla, Colombia's answer to Whole Foods is just around the corner.

The 2 bedroom suite was absolutely stunning. As beautiful, well equipped and furnished and comfortable as anywhere I have stayed in 35 countries at at fraction of the cost of any other high end apartment, The location is the best in the city. The pool (shared with the hotel next door) is freezing cold and the pool area has zero shade, no protection from blazing sun, not even a cover over the chairs. The front desk offered a horrible rip off rate when I asked to exchange money saying "It's Sunday, you can't do it anywhere else". All that said, the apartment was so exceptional and the location so perfect it deserves 5 stars

Came here with my mom, girlfriend and her mom for a week in Aug 2022 and was surprised how nice the service was. Everything was clean and the staff was amazing. If I could rate higher stars I would. Ive never had service so nice. Staff were quick and ready to help, they had safe taxis available. Always felt safe in the hotel and they would sent a text and check on us often. When we left there was somethings in the room and they sent pictures and asked if we had forgotten them to be safe before throwing it away. Also checkout was at 11:30 and my plane did not leave until later in the day. We could not stay in the room longer due to another family checking in later that day but they let us stay in the lobby, and 4th floor as long as we needed. On the fourth floor there is a pool, restraunt, balcony and another lounge. The only complaint I have is the restraunt service was slow at times but that is just a little annoyance. If I am back in Santa marta i will go to Grand marina suites. 20/10 stars

The location can't be beat and views make this apartment desirable. But the hotel service availability is cumbersome for the business traveller and maid service wasn't well coordinated. Will update after next trip.

It was hard to leave this place! The condo was beautiful, we had a two bedroom with a full kitchen and it was immaculate. The patio was huge. It was an apartment meets hotel resort right next to the town center. The staff was very kind, continuously helpful and easy going. They really took care of us here! I will be back one day and definitely recommend. La vista, incredible. The pool is shared with the AC Hotel so you have access to the restaurant/bar and pool views! Thank you!

If you are in Santa Marta this is no doubt the best place to stay in terms of location and value. The staff are great! The location is perfect and the views amazing. You are a short walk from the central square with many restaurants and bars. If you want more nightlife head to Rodadero by taxi which is very close by. The beach is better in Rodadero but not much in the way of good hotels or apartments. By far best idea is to stay here and do day trips from here.

Wow! I reserved the only room available for my 1 week stay in Santa Marta. It was a 2-bedroom apartment. The room was modern and new and even had a washing machine. I was upgraded to the 19th floor and had wonderful views of the sea and the town. The breakfast was tasty and the pool was nice as well. The building seems to house the Marriott, private residences, and the Grand Marina Suites. Top notch!

I don’t believe so in the Grand Marina building but I didn’t ask if they had access to the Marriott facilities in the same way they share the pool.
