    Nice hotel next to cathedral

    Hotel was pretty decent, but it was not as nice as shown in the pictures. It was going thru some remodeling and the pool/bar roof terrace was looking very nice. It does have an awesome view from the cathedral next door and the sunset. The staff was very nice and service was great overall! We do recommend this hotel for price/quality.

    No recommended, totally no confortable.

    This hotel was the worse hotel I had been. The air conditioner didn't work, the service was no able to resolve any issue, all bathroom was totally dirty, the towels were broken and they charged me 19% tax more. See the picture below the toilet never wasn't clean.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    It's not a terrible place and it really is nice and clean just enough but I do wish they really had fixed the blackout curtains like they had promised to do and had actually changed the sheets like I had asked as they did have a stain in them. The towels in the room need to be revamped, they have seen better days. Breakfast was good, the drinks at the bar was good, centrally located and the pool was good too but being that Santa Marta was hot, the pool was a tub of hot water. Overall a good stay
