We had a nice time with family friends in a suite with balcony. Over there you will find a swimming pool and a jacuzzi with an incredible view. 3 huge rooms each one with a bathroom. You can ask your food from room service. Try fishes and meat. Don't go for the sandwiches. A lot of pools for the family... More

From the kilometer-long stretch of beach to the high rise motel rooms to the duplex cabanas, Irotama has accommodations to meet every taste and pocketbook. Pros: *The white beach sand marks your distance from the coal loading complex nearer Santa Marta, where the hotels sport permanently coal dust-stained black sand. *The huge waterfall pool with water slide makes for hours...

The hotel, after 50 years, is still in great shape. Everybody is engaged in making you happy. I liked very much that all I was promised, I got. For example: I asked to be changed my sheets because I accidentally spilt some water on the bed. They came right away to do it. The food was good, and the pool... More

This place is hands down the perfect vacation spot in Santa Marta! It's located off of the highway, south of Santa Marta proper, and with a big sign... making it easy/hassle free to find. It's also less than a 3 minute ride from a shopping center with modern conveniences like Carulla (grocery), Juan Valdez (Starbucks), and Crepes and Waffles (Colombian... More

This is a great place to stay if you want to relax and be in contact with nature. It is not a modern complex with luxury buildings and lobby it is a complex with all the comfort and good service but surrounded by nature. Lots of trees, flowers, lizards, birds... you can choose from different types of lodging bohios, bungalows,... More

We stayed in one of the bungalows, although they are a little bit older, they still have all the comfort you need during your holidays. The resort itself is very good! There are several pools, restaurants and a big beach for you to enjoy off. If you are looking for a resort in Santa Marta, this is the place you... More

Great place to have a relaxing time by the pool, watch the sunsets on the beach and try some Colombian (Caribbean) cuisine. My boyfriend and I stayed 4 nights at the Irotama Resort for New Years. We stayed in a Junior Suite on the top floor of a separate 3 story construction. The service was outstanding. Staff were friendly and... More
