Upon arrival, the appearance of the hotel was disappointing, even though I was not expecting much after reading the reviews and after seeing the pictures on tripadvisor. Below is a list of problems encountered during my unpleasant stay. 1. Decor It's very dated and in desperate need of an upgrade. Curtains look old and there are moldy shower curtains. The... More

Rooms are old and in need of some modernization. No phone lines available to make long distance calls, the bathroom is big enough for half a person. The only good thing is the view. You need to wear a wrist band during your stay in order to come in. To resume, not worth the price .

Like most travelers, I used the city of Santa Marta as a starting point for visiting Tayrona National Park. Since most day tours to the park start between 7:30 and 9, I wanted to get a good night's sleep prior to each day's excursion. That didn't happen. While the hotel is located on a prime spot in front of the... More

This hotel is very nice, offers amazing view from the rooms, staff is very friendly, very good breakfast. It is well located, just a few meters from the beach. Its a shame they have only one elevator and sometimes takes a little while! In general good choice in santa marta!

Nice view of the ocean and terrific sunsets. The rooms recently renovated are standard but very clean. Location Rodadero is between Santamarta and the airport The beach is nice but very crowded in week ends.

The most amazing part of the hotel is the views from the balcony! They are simply breath taking in the evening as the sun sets. Our room was standard, with colorful decorations. The tour services the concierge offered were incredible and easy to use. We signed up for a day trip to Playa Tayrona, which I highly recommend! Our package... More

Location in the centre of el rodadero is brilliant. close to wonderful restaurants and nightlife and directly across the road from the beach. Reception and restaurant Service was below average and arrogant and dismissive. The hotel is in need of some maintenance but not serious although the rooms are well appointed and comfortable. An economical beach holiday hotel.

If you want a nice, comfortable hotel, on the beach, and with great views, this is the place. My mother, sister, husband, and I spent a week at La Sierra. It was renovated recently, and the rooms are simple but attractive and modern. The bathrooms although small are modern, with plenty of hot water and nice showers. Wi-Fi is excellent... More

This is the kind of hotel you want to visit for a memorable vacation, not the five-star big-chain high rise. The hotel is right across the street from the Rodadero Beach, immersed in the town surroundings. Restaurants, bars and markets are all within walking distance. The area is very safe and the beach is perfect for hanging out until midnight.... More

We decided to travel around Colombia and we stopped in Santa Marta to enjoy the Colombian Caribbean,(stayed for 3 nights) I found this hotel at tripadvisor and made the reservation straight from the hotel website, I live in Houston TX, and I handled everything over the phone...
