Santa Marta experience

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Oct 2020via mobile
Great service, good food and amazing place to stay and visit the surrounding areas or the Santa Marta historical city.
The menu is always the same, the buffet is good quality and you have multiple agencies for the different trips to the adjacent beaches.
The aquarium, Tafanga and mendihuaca (a little wavy) are recommended via Taxi Marino. Tayrona and Sierra Nevada are two Musts in this trip!

Reviewed 11 January 2019

This hotel is showing its age, it still looks like the 1980's. Even the key is one of those real keys they give out one per room with a big plastic tag on it. However, for the money it is still a good value. It has the best location on Rodadero beach, right in front and in the middle of everything. The elevator has been upgraded and worked well (though there is only one).

We had a family room on the 10th floor (though only 2 of us) for the beach front balcony and a bit of extra room. The beds were comfortable enough but could be better. The staff was friendly and helpful. My wife loved that there was plenty of hot water in the shower, something rare for this area.

The breakfast was simple with scrambled eggs, pancakes, rice and breads. They put onion in the eggs so I only had coffee. I believe they would make you fried eggs if you asked. We ate at the restaurant a couple times for lunch and dinner and it wasn't bad.

The absolute worst thing about this hotel is the WiFi connection. It requires you to log in for every session (even when you phone just sleeps). This also means no chrome cast device on the TV. This was extremely annoying as WiFi is used all the time on vacation.

We had a superb view from our balcony. Bathroom only has a shower, but otherwise all good. Breakfast buffet is not huge. Cafe not busy at night, but there are plenty of bars and restaurants within 3 minutes walk

Overall the location was good, close to everything in Rodadero Beach, my biggest issue was the wifi services, their system requires you to log in every time your phone goes to sleep. Front desk needs to be better staffed as it took us nearly 45 minutes to check in.

We visited 14 years ago for the first time and ever since we visited almost every time we visit Santa Marta.
The hotel has a great location right in front of the beach, the rooms have good size balconies with stunning view.
The staff is extremely friendly and they offer a good breakfast.
