Title says it all, during my stay 100 dollars was stolen from my room. I keep 200 dollars back up money, in a random book packed away in my bag. I had checked it on arrival. On checking out I noticed there was only 100 left. Got absolutely no help from reception when I reported it, more a 'hey what... More

Us along with our guests all just stayed here during our wedding in Santa Marta. It was perfect! Right on the beach, not too noisy at night, and wonderful helpful staff. The breakfast buffet in the mooring was great as well, with several typical Colombian dish options. Wifi worked in our room on the 9th floor and there was hot... More

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
