We arrived intending to stay one night, but just could not leave, we ended up staying for six nights! It will happen to you too! La Casa del Farol is an absolutely gorgeous boutique hotel in the heart of Santa Marta. Without question the nicest hotel in Santa Marta. The hotel is housed in a lovely colonial-style building in the central downtown district of Santa Marta, walking distance to everything. My girlfriend and I were so taken by the staff, who were so warm and pleasant, they greeted us with a cold drink and cool towel, despite not having reservations. They showed us the rooms, six total, each one more amazing than the next. The theme of each room is an iconic travel destinations, the New York room is svelte and hip, the Cape Town room rustic but sophisticated, the Rome room tasteful and polished, and the Barcelona Suite expansive and elegant. The ceilings must be over twenty feet tall with beautiful exposed beams, tile floors, balconies overlooking the streets below on the second-floor rooms. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed, and the suites are even more amazing! The beds are large and comfortable, the breakfast is delicious, but the most wonderful thing about this hotel is the staff and the owners, Sandra and Angel, who were so warm and welcoming, going out of there way to make our stay enjoyable and help us with everything we needed. We became friends with them and the rest of the staff during the time we spent here.
The rooftop deck and pool are absolutely lovely and a perfect place to spend the sunny days in Santa Marta. The restaurant next door was absolutely wonderful as well. There are many great day trips from Santa Marta as well. We explored the mountain town of Minca (about 45 minutes away) and the more remote beaches past Parque Tayrona on the days not spent lounging by the pool at La Casa del Farol.
This hotel is unique and gorgeous, the staff are wonderful it is a perfect place to spent a few days (at least) in Colombia, just beware-you may not want to leave!
