The positive aspects: - great location right on the beach - good breakfast can be taken on the deck right over the beach - quiet - friendly staff The negative aspects: - rooms are not super comfortable - the pool is small - the quality/price (a bit pricey for in my opinion)

Hotel staff: They're just adorable. Rooms are confortable and quiet, ideal when you're looking for tranquility. Pool is small but I think you don't need at all a pool when the caribbean sea is right next to you. Food is delicious, highly recommended, especially "patacones con hogao".

It's close to the airport so the cab ride was 19000 pesos (or roughly 10 dollars) but you can take a bus at the airport if you don't have a lot of luggage and it's 1400 pesos per person (some 75 cents) just tell...

A large group of Americans and Canadians stayed here for two weeks while we worked in a nearby town. Secure internet, good food and great access to the beach. It's a taxi ride to the larger town of Santa Marta or Crepes and Waffles.

Very clean rooms with AC, wonderful breakfast, friendly and accommodating staff and the outdoor area is lovely and right on the beach, but for the location and for Santa Marta we felt that it was a bit overpriced.
