I was in the hotel because of a tour group. The hotel was really nice, clean and really well located. The food for dinner and breakfast was good. The staff was really kind and helpful. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants and shops. I believe the hotel is economic for the location.
After a bad experience in a studio further from the beach, we had a very nice stay in this hotel. The owners/receptionists were very nice, the room was cosy, quiet with a nice balcony. We highly recommend it.
Fortunately we reserved for one nite only . They put us on the 6th floor and initially the elevator worked , after we returned we had to use the stairs because the elevator wasn't working anymore . Only when we checked out did we find that they did have some rooms with ac but they never checked with us I asked If they were going to make an adjustment on the rate and all they said was ... sorry !
We just stayed-in one night in this hotel as we were on the way to Tayrona National Natural Park. The hotel is located very close to the beach and the city centre. There were numerous rooms, so expect thriving social life (loud till late hours). Wi-fi was working, but it didn't connect to the Internet. The bathroom had a very poor ventilation. The whole room was very dirty and smelly. The bed was unclean and uncomfortable. No toiletries in the bathroom. Definitely wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
My wife, a mutual friend and I spent two nights here during Christmas season 2012. Betoma is a comfortable, family-owned hotel located about 50 meters from the Rodadero public beach. Although the hotel may be showing some signs of its age, it is comfortable, secure and located conveniently in the middle of all the action. The staff is friendly and helpful. They had no problem with us staying a few hours beyond normal check-out. Common areas are beautiful and well-maintained. The three of us booked a third-floor suite with a large bedroom and a spacious living room and kitchenette. The kitchen includes a large, albeit aged, refrigerator, sink, a number of small appliances, pots & pans, cooking and eating utensils. The tap water in Santa Marta is not potable, so if you are planning on cooking meals, you should get a few jugs of filtered water. A large balcony spans the perimeter of the living and bed rooms... complete with outdoor table and chairs. The rooms are clean, but could use a facelift at this point in the life of the hotel. Each room is equipped with a phone, TV and air conditioner. Our air conditioner was a bit noisy, but did not prevent us from getting a night's sleep after a day in the sun. The beds are somewhat small and hard. Our unit had a full and double-bed. The showers have both hot and cold water, which was always available on demand. The living room area is spacious, and includes a decent sized dining table, sofa and chair. WIFI was consistent, fast, strong and reliable on the third floor of the hotel. We experienced no problems making VOIP calls. Even during the Christmas high season, the suite was reasonably priced at COP$ 180,000 ($100 US). My wife and I plan on making Hotel Betoma our "home away from home" and highly recommend it to anyone seeking comfortable, affordable lodging in Santa Marta's El Rodadero.…
