On our recent trip to the Colombian Coast we stayed at the Plaza Gourmet and we were not disappointed, a good quality boutique hotel located in the heart of the old town in Santa Marta with friendly and helpful staff. We must extol the restaurant, a high caliber establishment serving excellent food. We will be more than pleased to return... More

There were a few real concerns. 1. The eclectic music selection (the Nutcracker Suite, immediately-pre-disco Motown, James Taylor, the Beatles, and, as far as I could tell, nothing that was (a) recorded after 1980, (b) recorded in Colombia; or (c) in Spanish) was just way too loud. I live in New York City where I have lived most of my... More

I spent a couple of nights here in a very charming room on the second floor, overlooking a beautiful garden and courtyard. There is a small jacuzzi type paddling pool which is ideal for cooling down in if one is sunbathing or relaxing in the courtyard. It is a family run business and feels very much like you are a...

I allways travel with my dogs, two teckels, so it is allways a problem to find a good hotel that is pet freindly.... Hotel Gourmet Plaza is the perfect place to stay after a 15 hour drive from Bogota with my dogs. The terraza room is perfect, big, very clean, excellent decoration, private terrazas.

I have written a separate review of the restaurant at the Gourmet Plaza. We are staying at the hotel for a week. It is a wonderful hotel, reminding me of a Moroccan Riyad. There is a small open central courtyard where you can sit surrounded by trees and plants (and check your emails with the free wifi). Our room is... More

We decided to sludge on a hotel for two nights. being introduced to our retold and insect filled closet was a surprise to me. The price for food was triple what it cost outside the hotel. The hotel played loud music until late night. The pool was not usable so don't plan on taking a dip. It is only used... More

Three blocks from the waterfront and located in the historic area, this hotel is a gem. It is a great place to relax with its warm atmosphere and quality service. Eclectic art and antiques decorate the hotel and restaurant. Chef Maya, who trained in France, provides a menu that makes it a pleasure to stay in and enjoy a meal... More
