Excellent choise
Our stay was outstanding.
Hernando, usRomance trip
Very Good 8.0
The hotel seems to be in a rough area when you arrive, but walk three blocks and you are in the heart of town (Parque de Los Novios). The service of the front desk left a lot to be desired, as we did not feel welcome by the staff when we arrived, but they warmed up. The pool on the roof is small, but cute. The hotel is new and clean. Breakfast is very good as well.

Santa Marta 2 night stay
I stayed here for two nights. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very professional, friendly and courteous. When they say "at your service" they really mean it. The only cons were that the pool and skybar are very small. I'm not sure if this was just in my room, but I wasn't able to find a "do not disturb" sign for my door. As a result, my first morning, I was woken up by someone who came to inventory my minni-bar and later by house keeping. This didn't happen the second day though, unless it was checked while I was at breakfast. Overall I had a good experience and I would stay there again

Good Hotel, Nice Amenities
The value of the hotel is good, the amenities are great. The rooftop pool & service was phenomenal. The room is a bit basic, and small.

Awesome stay in Santa Marta!
This was a well-maintained hotel, with great service and hospitality. The staff was very attentive, polite, and accommodating. I highly recommend this hotel without question. The roof top pool was especially a great amenity given the warm climate.
