Very helpful staff, specially the cook (she is great). We stayed in the room in the roof, and it was very quiet. The roof terrace is also very nice. There is a beautiful swimming pool in the main courtyard!

This is a lovely hotel, just across the street from its sister hotel, Casa del Farol. It is small and beautifully designed. There is a plunge pool in the central courtyard, ideal for cooling off in the heat of the day, a roof terrace, a lounge area with a good supply of books and magazines. The rooms are clean and...

We stayed at this hotel for a week, in the Aire room. The room is nice and clean, although a bit small. Also, it would be nice to have a small fridge in there. The staff may let you store things in the fridge at the front desk, though. The TV is hard to see, but I did not go... More

The staff were mostly understanding of your needs and did go out of their way to ensure that you were supported in getting to places and with obtaining services in the hotel. Most of the staff were bilingual. However, the issue I faced was an attack of bugs (bedbugs or mosquitos?) the second morning I woke up. Aside from that,... More

Diana and Alma were so helpful and kind , nothing was to much . The owners were also helpful . The small pool is a gem , after a hot day out A little fridge in the room would be useful . . When we come back to Santa Marta we will stay here.

Very friendly owner (sandra). Very willing to help and sort things out when you are not a spanish native speaker as I am. Nicely located and furnished boutique hotel. Breakfast will do the job.

Very pleasant place to stay, but not a knockout in any particular way. Simple and uncluttered design. The 'concept' room I stayed in was quite small and decorated in laura ashley style fashion with lots of pink and florals. TV was impossible to see. The dipping pool is a great idea, but bare in mind that there is little privacy... More
