This is the third time we have come to Irotama Resort and this time we stayed in the Bungalow (#36). Basically we lived in the pool at Irotama. The pool at Irotama is my favorite pool of anywhere in Colombia or the US. It is enormous, has a great waterfall, a great slide, and ample seating for everybody. We came... More

This is the second time I have stayed here. Its peaceful and well managed for a big resort. Its right on the beach, has 3 pools and a rooftop spa, all of which are excellent. Several restaurants offer a good variety of food. The service is friendly and very helpful. Definitely going back again.

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
