We got married here. And it was an absolute smashing success. We had the whole hotel filled with our family and friends. We had people of all age groups and from all over the world.

Everyone had a great room and enjoyed the pools, the views, the massages, the food and the wonderful, wonderful staff. We were all totally comfortable right off, and everyone enjoyed the space, the location, and all the great things the hotel did for us: calling cabs, giving advice, laundry, ironing, shoe shining, translation, you name it!

And the wedding itself was amazing. We set it up on the second floor balcony. It was intimate, beautiful, and unique. All of our guests enjoyed the dinner (though we had a lot of people to accommodate), and then the party was epic. We went until 3am and everyone had a blast.

This place came through huge for us and we are so so so thankful for the incredible experience that their amazing team made possible

My family stayed for 5 days over the Xmas holidays at Casa Carolina. The hotel was very well decorated and had very interesting architectural details/design. We stayed in the 4th floor penthouse and thoroughly enjoyed the extra room to spread out and the private porches overlooking the city.

We took full advantage of the pools (including the "cool tubs" and the in house restaurant for breakfast and several dinners.

Casa Carolina is located right on the edge of the updated part of the historic district. While the street it is on is not the best visually (right on the edge of downtown updating), you are only a few blocks away from multiple restarants and shops. We also felt perfectly safe walking around.

We made the mistake of driving from Cartagena to Santa Marta (do not recommend!) - there is not parking at the hotel but they can arrange "unusual" parkting down the street in a closed off courtyard.

We honestly can't say we loved the tours around Santa Marta (we took the hotel boat tour to La Tayrona - beautful but very rough boat ride and not particularly relaxing beaches along with a tour of Minca which was nice but very rough 4x4 rides to the tour places). This part of Colombia is still develping its tourism infrastructure so it's more appropriate for 20 year olds who want to backpack/stay in hostels/party than families with teens right now. But if you are going to Santa Marta, highly recommend Casa Carolina

We gathered at this beautiful place for a wedding and enjoyed everything! The staff was excellent, so helpful and pleasant. They looked terrific with their crisp shirts and smiling faces. My room was lovely, and the bathroom with fancy shower was amazing! I loved the four pools, each offering a different experience, but the dining room was my favorite. I came for a delicious breakfast, sat around with friends as they came and went, and then had a tasty lunch with another group of family or friends. Food was excellent, as I said, and the friendly atmosphere was so comfortable... water and fruit available all day. Children were welcomed, too. I liked being in the historic section, near the beach, the plaza, the market and restaurants. Easy to walk around. Of course, the wedding upstairs was very fancy and festive with gorgeous flowers... every detail perfect! Lucky bride and groom! I enjoyed celebrating.

The hotel is simply spectacular. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They take care of every detail in the rooms and their restaurant offers a variety of typical food of the region. It is an architecturally harmonious space and in accordance with what is expected in a hotel of this category. I would always come back to this hotel. It started as a business trip and the days spent at this hotel turned out to be a spectacular break.

Loved the "feel like home" approach. They take care of me and my friends any time of the day (eventough at two am in the morning, they offered special dishes from the kitchen).

Food, rooms and service were great. Would love to visit them again!

This hotel is so prefect, every single detail clearly flawlessly curated. From the rain showers in the rooms, to the marble tiles floors in the rooms, the art, spacious closet, very very spacious rooms. The primary bedroom had a jack and Jill bathroom and sliding wooden doors for more privacy from the living room. The primary/master bedroom had a balcony with seating for two. My room was on the second floor facing the pool with a balcony for sitting and a small terrace type of balcony off the living room area. The rooms were so tastefully decorated I would stay here again as a staycation it was that wonderful of an experience. This hotel has 3 pools. One in an open atrium on the first level. Then a pool on the roof and a wading more private relaxation pool next to the main one. The food is amazing, the staff beyond wonderful. Everything here was first class! It was quiet and tranquil. The neighborhood like most of Santa Marta you do have to be a bit wary of but they give you a map and full explanation and detail about where to go.

Just stayed 5 nights at this charming boutique hotel.

All in all the stay was flawless but with a few downsides: The TV could only show Netflix and only after assistance from a receptionist. We gave the restaurant a try and decided that the very long waiting time and the not so satisfying lunch didn't call for a revisit. Breakfast was good.

The whole staff was very helpful and friendly.

Hotel Boutique Casa Carolina is a very nice hotel located just a few blocks from the nice part of Santa Marta.

We recently stayed there for close to a week. The restaurant food was terrific and the staff was very helpful. The rooms were (well) cleaned on a daily basis. One could walk a few paces to the beach and/or restaurants and bars. The boat trip to the island beach was terrific - it was like arriving in Maui four centuries ago, because there are no hotels, no houses, not even a dock.
Colombia is a great place to visit! Dyke

minca34 contributions4 helpful votes
santa marta beach is in walking distance but it's not great. I have stayed here with my one year old twice. They are definitely child friendly, they have child seats in the restaurant & my baby loved the pumpkin puree! kids are allowed in the pools/jakuzzis. the pools have shallow areas. They even give an electronic bracelet that notifies reception if there's a baby in the water.
