Hotel Gourmet Plaza is a stylish small hotel located in the historic district of Santa Marta. The court yard, rooms, and restaurant are all tastefully decorated and very well kept. The staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and we found nothing more refreshing after a day of exploring the city than a cold peach tea frappe. The dinner menu offers you a wonderful array of multicutltural dishes from crepes with a variety of fillings and well created sauces to seafood and meat dishes that also showcase the art of cooking. Also, if you are looking for a nice bottle of South American wines...they have it. Prices are extremely reasonable compared to North American standards. But what sets Hotel Gourmet Plaze apart from any other place you may wish to stay, is the quality of the owners, their family and staff. This is a place you can call home while you visit the many attractions that Santa Marta has to offer. When it came time to leave it was with a very heartfelt thank you and goodbye.

Room Tip: We liked the second story rooms best. Slightly smaller but cooler during the heat of the day.

This is a very cozy place in the downtown of Santa Marta. The patio with a swimming pool and fountain was amazing, quite the plase to doze when it is too hot to be outside or just to cool down after a trip to incredible Tayrona. The rooms were super clean and had individual bathrooms. Also the common areas were great, completely open (you can only get away with that in the tropic!) and very stylish with plenty of couches and chairs for laidback get-togethers. We even got to meet the owners, they were really great and had plenty of advice to give us as to what to visit and how to make the best of our stay. Restaurant at the street front really good too! A place not to miss.

Stayed December 2010, traveled with friends
