Hotel Arhuaco, Santa Marta
Very Good8.0
Nice room, location. Poor breakfast
Room in pretty good conditions, A/C, bathroom, cleanliness. WiFi signal is weak in the room. Breakfast is pretty basic, they could do better with the amount they charge. Pool needs a little bit of maintenance. One block from the Rodadero beach, right by the local market. Not noise at nights.
Alfredo, us4 night trip
Hotel Arhuaco, Santa Marta
This hotel is very average. You're paying for the proximity to the beach. The room was ok. The main problem I had was the wifi connectivity. It was spotty at best. It would intermittently go out. The front desk always said they were working on it, but it never improved. Even when there was a connection, it was very slow. Unable to stream any sort of videos. They also advertised self-service but that is not true. They only offer dry cleaning service and it is very expensive. I took my clothes to a local lavanderia and it was half the cost.

Stay in this Rodadero area for best access.
Santa Marta is a great place to visit. I like the Hotel Arhuaco because it is very close to the Rodadero Beach, has a nice private pool, good shower and cleaning facilities, nice workers, decent restaraunt that is not too expensive. Being able to walk a single block to the beach area and tour providers cuts down on costs for more transportation to the Rodadero center area. It is better to stay there.
