Hotel staff: They're just adorable. Rooms are confortable and quiet, ideal when you're looking for tranquility. Pool is small but I think you don't need at all a pool when the caribbean sea is right next to you. Food is delicious, highly recommended, especially "patacones con hogao". Hotel is close to the airport and close to El Rodadero, but at... More

We just wanted to see the city and then relax. We arrived on a Saturday morning. It's close to the airport so the cab ride was 19000 pesos (or roughly 10 dollars) but you can take a bus at the airport if you don't have a lot of luggage and it's 1400 pesos per person (some 75 cents) just tell...

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.

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
