We just stayed-in one night in this hotel as we were on the way to Tayrona National Natural Park. The hotel is located very close to the beach and the city centre. There were numerous rooms, so expect thriving social life (loud till late hours). Wi-fi was working, but it didn't connect to the Internet. The bathroom had a very... More

My wife, a mutual friend and I spent two nights here during Christmas season 2012. Betoma is a comfortable, family-owned hotel located about 50 meters from the Rodadero public beach. Although the hotel may be showing some signs of its age, it is comfortable, secure and located conveniently in the middle of all the action. The staff is friendly and... More

I would not recommend hotel Betoma. It looks like a hotel that could have been nice 20 years ago, but it had been badly kept and it certainly needs an update. Here is why we didn’t like it: ROOMS: They could use some maintenance. The furniture is old, the walls are dirty, the AC makes so much noise it’s impossible... More

The location is decent, close to the beach, less than 1 block. The hotel is also very inexpensive. We paid approximately $75US per night. Cons: the rooms are very outdated, walls are dirty and cracked. The matress was thin and hard, uncomfortable. The shower does not have much water pressure, hardly any hot water. Our room had a balcony which... More

The hotel is a family run business and the owner's son was visiting from Texas with his family. He gave us tons of great tips for where to eat (Donde Cucho, which is a few blocks from the hotel) and really made us feel at home. The hotel is just a half-block from the most active part of the beach... More

I chose this hotel based on the reviews from Tripadvisor and I wasn't disappointed. The location in Rodadeo is excellent. Half a block from the beach. The AC works really well. For the location and price it was excellent. Since they don't serve breakfast it was great to choose a breakfast place every morning. I ate an arepa con huevo... More
