I went with my family (6 adults) plus my little niece (2 Yrs). They were kind enough to give us a bedroom in advance before the check in time since we were traveling with the baby girl. The commitment was to give us the two additional bedrooms as we had previously booked at 3pm at the check in time. It... More

I've stayed here twice over the past 18 months and it seems to have gotten worse. When we arrived there were "issues" with our rooms and they had to find another hotel for us and we ended up at the SmartSuites. The next night we had to come back to the Sonesta because SmartSuites was sold out (for good reason).... More

I wasn't able to get a direct flight to Santa Marta so I had to fly to Barranquilla and spend the night before taking a two hour bus ride the next day.

I just stayed in this hotel about a week ago. The hotel is good in the sense that the bedrooms are very nice, clean and roomy. The internet is pretty fast. Breakfast is very good. The drawback is that the room I had and the one assigned to my colleague had a musty smell. Evidently the staff knows about this... More

This was my first time in this hotel and I had high expectations because I have stayed sometimes at the same franchise in Valledupar. However, this hotel isn't the same.

We stayed for a one night in Sonesta hotel and all was good. Staff correct and efficient, the room was clean and very spacious, bed was extremely comfortable, breakfast -- impressive. The only issue, was the smell of molds in the room. The rest was great.

The Hotel is cozy and well located. I recommend it specially because of the service, everyone treat you very politely and help you out. The room is huge and clean, very modern and it corintos with a iPod Dock. Highly recommend it for business people. Attached in the Hotel is a commercial Center, giving you option to dinner.
