This complete resort is located on the shores of one of the most tranquil beaches bordering the majestic Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, with more than 200 meters of coastal property, villas, a convention center and an enormous tower with privileged views of the Caribbean Sea. The property is located 20 minutes from Santa Marta, one of the oldest cities of America, known as the ‘Most beautiful bay of the continent’, as a result of the exuberant post card that combines a coastal area and a mountain range 5,775 meters above sea level, making it the tallest mountainous littoral formation in the world. From our resort you will be able to visit this tourism area’s main attractions, such as the historic and cultural center of Santa Marta, the ‘Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino’, final resting place of Simon Bolivar, and the Aquarium and Sea Museum that house diverse marine fauna specimens and host dolphin shows.

We've been to this hotel 5 times already, love Santa Marta and go there every other year, usually book a few night in an apartment in Rodadero so we can go and do tours and then a couple of night here to relax before going back home. The service is very good, staff is very friend

The hotel is clean, good service and friendly staff. The beach is not as good as used to be but still very nice. This was the third time I visited but sadly the last.
Our issue was with the booking/cancellation and first day.

My impression is that it is a place best suited for families. You might enjoyed it as a young person but I have my doubts. It has several bars and restaurants. You have to make reservations for dinner. It is an easy process but personally I'd have preferred having a default optio

It’s the first time I stayed at a Decameron so I didn’t know what to expect.
Let’s start by saying the hotel needs a little bit of work (an update) everywhere from general building to the rooms.
The service in general and the staff is very nice and they care about the guests wh
