In Santa Marta in the Rodadero there is not to much to choose. So, this hotel is the place to stay for business bit out of the crowd with a very good service. Tamaca has tradition in Santa Marta it has two buildings, one on the beach and the other just next to it, more for business (north tower) The... More

The price is just plain evil and immoral during early January for what they offer. I paid $270 for a room in the cheaper tower across the street and got very basic accommodations where we could hear a man in the room next door making snorting noises during the night. The food buffet included was mediocre. Internet was good. Otherwise... More

Pretty much the only nice thing about this hotel is the pool and eaSy access to the beach. However we walked to the beach after paying to spend the day at the hotel and nobody outside had anything to do with the hotel so we had to pay again just to get beach chairs. We then decided to walk back... More

Had to stay in Santa Marta for the weekend and someone told me about the Tamacahotel. I think there are better boutique hotels in Santa Marta for the same price , or less . Lining was dirty and the service was rude . I do find very convenient the location .

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

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
