This hotel was a mixed bag. The hotel itself is clean, modern, good view and has the usual amenities (no gym but they offer complimentary crossfit classes). The location is perfect, on the less noisy/crowded sector of the beach at Rodadero and next to a mall with a grocery store/restaurants etc. In the last few months police have cracked down... More

We really enjoyed Tamaca resort in Santa Marta. It seems to be the area Colombians like to vacation as well. We are from the U.S. and speak little Spainish, but found it exciting to be around locals and not other Americans! The hotel is one of the oldest in the area, but the views are great from all rooms and... More

Ok hotel. I was a solo traveller meeting a friend. The staff were quite rude when my friend arrived and made me pay extra for a second person, even though my booking was for up to two people (they argued we needed to check in together, but we arrived on different days). There are better options out there. Food was... More

Not a very new hotel right at the beach. The beach was extremely busy, and the pool chairs were occupied with towel within five minutes off opening. Hardly any of the staff was able to talk English. The check-in procedure was cumbersome, and we felt uncomfortable and cheated. The rooms were nice and clean with a safe (free). However during... More

The hotel on great location, has a good pool and friendly staff. It is lacking a good internet connection, water pressure is low for the showers in the room. When this is fixed and food quality goes up a bit a unbeatable place to visit.
