I enjoy staying here and have stayed several times. Wifi is free and reliable. The beds are firm and the room is clean. The pool has recently been completely reconstructed and is less than a year old. I prefer to stay on the main site and don't stay in the tower.

Great location for a good prize. We stayed at the tower that is in the back for a better price but if you get the fifth floor you may get the ocean view. Breakfast is all you can eat and different local options every day. Service is good. You go to the beach by walking one block and you get... More

Pool best thing at hotel, nice room, food OK, too much attitude from employees, especially Breakfast server at Hotel Norte and Carp man in front of beach. Be insistent to not accept mediocrity, a lot of attitude here by breakfast server at Norte and beach carp man, they treat you badly, don't want to do their jobs, ask for food... More

dark mold over all bathroom,water pressure a trickle,use of the pool requires a two block walk across a busy street, and cockroaches on breakfast table. a 4ftx4ft mirror fell off the wall while i was not in, and they attempted to charge me with the cost of repair!

We stayed at this hotel in January 2014 and found the place absolutely fantastic. The views from the rooms in Torre Beach were fantastic and the swimming pool absolutely divine. Our stay included breakfast and one other meal which was nice and the service in the restaurant was fantastic. Unfortunately the service in the pool bar left a lot to... More

Stayed here for three nights, in the beach side tower (as they refer to it, it's not really a tower). The food is good and we ate dinner there a few times. Breakfast was pretty good too, plenty of choice and a good egg chef. The place as quiet in the evening after the resident band finished at 10 pm,... More

Enjoyed the food the location, good for relaxing, very nice and friendly staff. As good as when we visited in 2006. Not the cheapest but good value for money. New Mall at walking distance, Santa Marta is a must visit when in Colombia.
