A large group of Americans and Canadians stayed here for two weeks while we worked in a nearby town. Secure internet, good food and great access to the beach. It's a taxi ride to the larger town of Santa Marta or Crepes and Waffles.

This was the only hotel available by the time my husband and I were going. So even thought was not a 5 stars hotel, we went for it. The first room they gave us had the toilet broken, so they had to move us to another one. The rooms are really small, really small beds, not very clean, you can... More

Very clean rooms with AC, wonderful breakfast, friendly and accommodating staff and the outdoor area is lovely and right on the beach, but for the location and for Santa Marta we felt that it was a bit overpriced. There isn't that much to do around the hotel so you are pretty much relegated to spending all your time at there.... More

The rooms at Rodadero Tequendama Inn are very large and modern. They are clean, and exceeded my expectations. The staff was friendly, and the sunsets on the beach patio were a ritual for us during our 5 nights 6 days stay. The hotel pool was modern, refreshing, and well kept. My two complaints are the location of the hotel, it... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Tequendama Inn a few weeks ago for four nights and we enjoyed ourselves a great deal. The hotel is situated directly on the beach with a 15 minute taxi ride to the airport in one direction and downtown Santa Marta the other direction (average of $7-8 US dollars). The deck overlooking the beach... More

ten minutes from Rodadero, ten mins from the airport, 25mins from Taganga, located in peaceful environment; cleaning service very efficient; rooms are spacious and well designed; brilliant breakfast; kind of small swimming pool but next to a beach; who likes swimming like I do, will love this beach, which is more like 150m pool with extremely calm water.

We stayed here for one week when arriving to Colombia. The hotel is pretty close to the airport, but faraway from everything else. We took a cab to El Rodadero and Santa Marta every night since there's nothing to do or see around the hotel. If you want to hang on the beach every day and go to bed early... More
