“Just perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Absolutely amazing, very beautiful hotel, nice access to the beach just in front of the hotel. Good restaurant "San Marino" with a very nice view to the ocean. Comfortable and clean rooms with an oustanding view to the caribbean sea. Very safe neighborhood.

Room Tip: Choose rooms with numers finishing 06 - 07 - 08 - 09, this rooms have the best ocean view.

I've stayed at this hotel twice. 2007 & 2010. Great, central location all within walking distance to bars, restaurants & shopping. You can step out of the lobby, cross the street and be on the beach. The rooms are just ok if you're not planning on spending much time in them. The breakfast buffet is outstanding and the service is wonderful!

This hotel is located in a safe, central area with easy access to the beach, tourist attractions and airport. The restaurant and bar on site the San Marino is open air seating and overlooks the beach. Always a nice sea breeze at night although the traffic can be noisy but lively. Lots of party buses playing music doing pub crawls. The free breakfast buffet is good. The rooms are spacious but the beds are hard. Great if you have back problems :-) All in all a bang for your buck! I would stay there again.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper don't pick an ocean view room due to party traffic

Nice people, great location, big room. Not clean, shabby room and very hard beds. And the noise from the street (to the 14th floor, actually 13th but who's counting) didn't stop until after 2 am on a Wednesday night. Might be ok if you are only here to party, but I am here to work.
Unfortunately I had to leave the Hilton for a night because they were booked up. Check out the Hilton for 387000 COP per night not the 440000 that I paid for the Capilla del Mar.

Good choice when there's no availability in other hotel. No sense of service, rooms are not price - quality oriented. La recepcionista terrible!
Lo mejor: la atención del botones y el coctel por el mal servicio!

I went to Capilla del Mar for a family vacation and we had a great time. It's right next to the beach, and right there, the hotel had a zone reserved specially for the hotel guests. Here you had the choice of having lunch right on the spot, and they had beds to lie on and relax. I really enjoyed it!

We stayed 7 days in this hotel and i will recomend it to anyone. We booked a standart room but upon arrival we decided to pay 140 dollars extra for a renovated room, which was gorgeous. We had a room on 19 floor with a beatiful ocean view. The breakfast in the hotel was the best, lots of variety of fruit, freshly squeezed juice, natural yogurt, etc. The food in Colombia is delishious and healthy, they even made soup for breakfast. The location of the hotel is perfect, taxi service is cheap and there are a lot of nice local restaurants around. We would love to go back there one day!
