Everything in perfect shape. The rooms, food, drinks, price, are perfect if your expectations are about a natural place, not "your house in the Caribbean" You'll have a nice room, simple but full. All you NEED, maybe not all you desire. Want to eat something local, healthy, Italian, beef or from the caribbean? It is perfect. Surroundings? Go to Tayrona's...

First of all let me tell you about this hotel the rooms are situated in different buildings throughout the gigantic area that belongs to the hotel property. You have regular rooms in tall building as well as little bungalows right on the beach. I was transfer from on building to an other one cause the wi-fi service wasn't working on...

I stayed here for a week long conference. The staff were helpful, even though they had hundreds of people to check in. It was diffucult to know what restaurants were included and not, but the food was excellent. The pool area is great and you can do some laps. The beach is nice, and I realise why there are water...

I stayed here for a conference. It's semi-inclusive--meaning the wrist band you get provides meals at the buffets or from the specials at the other restaurants. The price of drinks was VERY high compared to anywhere else outside of the place. Beers had a different price every time I bought one and the bar tenders constantly tried to charge for...

We stayed at Irotama Resort with our 2 kids (15 and 10). We travelled to Santa Marta because we live in Bogota temporarily and wanted to "tick" Santa Marta off our list of places to see during our stay in Colombia. My son had been to Irotama Resort before with friends and liked it so we went for one night...

My husband and me stayed 5 nights, 3 weeks before Christmas (low season). A long beach which is cleaned regularly. The Bohios in front of the beach are amazing; good size, nicely decorated, very clean and comfortable. The view from the jacuzzi in the 16th floor is amazing, and well suited for couples, no kids around. Great place for holidays...

Firstly say that the Country is amazing. You cannot believe the beauty of the region until you are there. The hotel is well located in an area close to Santa Marta that is not too busy but that allows very easily enjoy night life if you want, or for the more adventurer go to the Tayrona Park. The hotel is...

Stayed here for 4 days, my room on the 12th floor had the best view you can have in Santa Marta. But they asked something like US500 for it, each night! This is 2 months of minimum wage in Colombia. Sleep quality: 10/10. Irotama Hotel is got a large beach, a lot of amenities for the whole family, and a...

Just came back from a trip to Irotama in Santa Marta. I found the room (bungalow) to be spacious, clean and comfortable. Not modern but still very nice. The hotel has many options, beautiful pools and a very nice and clean beach. However they present the hotel as an all-inclusive, and its not entirely true. On most restaurants you can...

I have stayed at various hotels in Santa Marta, this one was much better than the others. From an international perspective, most hotels in Santa Marta are quite average. At least at this price. The bungalow was nice enough, the bathroom was by no means 5 star quality though. The water was hot though, which is not a given in...
