Very Good8.0
For relaxing by the beach and nothing more
The staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was perfect for my family. BUT when we arrived the road was super damage, I'm guessing because they are building other buildings so trucks might damage the roads. Then we didn't know which building it was, there are 3 or 4 buildings of the same resort and there was no any explanation to which one it was and staff from other buildings were not able to help us right away, they kept saying 'the next one' and when we got there it was again 'the next one'. If you want to just relax by the beach this is great, but it's far from the historic center. I also think I got sick from one of the restaurants by the beach but they offer a doctor on location, doctor was good and helpful, meds and consultation was covered by hotel.

Nice stay in Santa Marta.
Large full service resort with plenty of things to keep everyone of all ages occupied. The resort is clean, well run and offers a variety of occomodation types from high raise to bungalow. The property has more than one pool and a wide beach but note that while on the beach, you will be bothered by vendors hawking everything from jewelry to corn on the cob.
