“cheap hotel on the beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night. The hotel was cheap and on the beach and a short walk to the main nightlife in the town. The staff were very friendly upon arrival. The hotel is a bit run down - it could be a lot better with some improvement

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of a group tour. In a good location right on the seafront and marina and close to the historical area, this hotel could be so much better with a minimum update of paint. Rooms are dark, gloomy and depressing with barely any outlets. rooms on the right have no windows and lamps are for show as there aren't enough outlets. breakfast was poor only eggs and coffee no tea or bread staff was friendly but didn't really speak English
they had a small swimming pool but it was closed for maintenance
would not honestly recommend staying here as I heard from other travelers they stayed in nicer accommodations for much less.

Hotel is run down and dirty. Killed the biggest roach I have ever seen one night in my room.Sheets were stained and disgusting. Room had no safe or hot water. View of crack alley out my window. Only thing going for it was the location right on the main drag.

Room Tip: Pick another hotel.

In a prime location right on the seafront, a stone`s throw from the pleasant marina and close to the historical area, this hotel could be so much better with a minimum amount of expenditure. Rooms are dark, gloomy and depressing with no room wifi access. Breakfast area in particular is grim - and what they had the nerve to serve for the cost defied belief. Worst breakfasts to date in Colombia!!

Swimming pool area is reasonably pleasant but would not honestly recommend staying here at COP 140,000 per night.

Hey, the outside of the place is appealing and is right on the ocean. When the sun starts to set the bar out front has a great little happy hour and makes tasty mojitos. Yes it is a bit dated, but the ac works and there is a tv. The breakfast is simple, but again, this is Santa Marta! If you want something nice you should probably go to Cartagena. They could keep the pool open later and not cater to the pigeons so much, but if you want to be in this part of town and not stay in a stinky hostel with stinky people that aren't used to this kind of heat then it isn't too bad.

This place has a nice location on the main road and appears very nice from the outside relative to the competition. The pool is also really nice though it closes at 7pm so isn't ideal.

The rooms are very bad for a hotel in this price range. Very hard beds, slightly dirty, old furniture, decrepit bathrooms. Air conditioner was next to useless. Safe didn't work.

The staff are very friendly though don't speak any English and aren't very informed about the region.

Breakfast is low quality.

Can't recommend staying here as there are much cheaper options around.

Room Tip: get a room with a fan as you'll need it - a/c doesn't work well at all

Booked here for an upgraded experience from hostel accommodations. Had to give a deposit to guarantee the room, could not get a refund. No upgrade available. Very disappointed.

Room was basic, Hostel beds and linens are just as good for a quarter of the price.
