Good value for price, directly at the beach
The hotel has direct access to the beach, great for morning walks or swims. A little crowded in the afternoons, but still more relaxed than Rodadero Beach. The restaurant has a terrace with a great view. If you wanna have a room with a sea view, you must choose a room in the tall main building, on the upper floors. They cost a little more. From the pictures on it is not so obvious which room has a view and which not. The more economic rooms are in a low building where you don't have a sea view. The management was very helpful and offered us an upgrade to a room with a view when we complained about the not-so-clear description of the rooms on The wi-fi does not work consistently in all corners of the hotel, but with a few steps you will always find a spot.

friendly hotel
Booked last minute. It was fine. I liked the people who worked there, they were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was surprisingly good for a hotel restaurant in Santa Marta. The wifi was great and strong everywhere until it went down on the last day. There is NO business center although it says so in the hotel description. And there isn't even a computer for a guest to use. The rooms are big and all have two bed room. The shower is great, good water pressure, tepid water, which is all you need in Santa Marta, it's too hot there for hot.

Nice but basic hotel with great beach and service
Nice but basic hotel in the expensive side of nearby Santa Marta. Lovely beach, great kiosk overseeing the beach, very good service and good food. I liked the breakfast but my family found it a bit strange. The small apartment we had was very clean but a bit cramped. Nevertheless, its location with a quiet and very good beach makes it a fun stay. Juan Carlos the manager if fab, gave us a lift back to the airport when our taxi didn't show. I would stay there again.
