We booked this hotel after few days in Taganga during the pre-carnival season, to escape the noise of the nightly fiestas there. At GHL we could in fact sleep without problems because the hotel is located in the middle of nowhere, at about 20 km south of Santa Marta and close to the city's airport. The few daily take-offs were... More

This is by far the best 3 star hotel I have stayed in. The rooms are large, clean and modern. The staff are very polite and helpful. The pool and restaurant are beautiful and provide a lovely setting for the hotel. The only problem I found for this hotel is the distance from town, which is probably why it is... More

We spent 4 nights in Costa Azul. The hotel is ok, if you prefer pool to beach and if you are with children. The pool is phantastic, the staff too, very helpful. But if you wanna go out in the night, it is definitively not the best location. And a lot of things need to be refreshed and better maintained.... More

My four year old daughter and I spent Christmas here. It is very close to the airport and the weather was hot and sunny everyday. From other reviews, I asked for a room in the new building and it was a very clean room with modern finishings...a little too modern for my taste and I do wish that Hoteliers would... More

This is a difficult review to write because there are some very real discrepancies amongst the various areas being rated. Unit satisfaction is quite high; the room was clean and well appointed and the beds and linens were satisfactory albeit they‘re now well worn. The activities and amenities were also quite good; the two pools are huge and kept clean... More

As a non-spanish speaking couple we struggeled a lot in this hotel. One of the bellboys spoke english a bit, and a girl at the reception even less. We missed a lot of information because of this language barrier. With a help of an other guest we managed to book a tour to Cartagena with an english guide at the... More

This is a very peaceful small hotel with a huge swimming pool and one for the kids as well. Nice little poolside resaurant. Ok beach. No white sand or clear water, but ok. No AC in the rooms but not a big deal. Nice balconies. Suspect the maid pilfered some pesos so make sure you put all the valuables in... More
