“Lovely little place in a great location!”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

The rooms were stylishly decorated, comfortable and clean. The hotel has a nice courtyard - and even though we didn't swim in the small pool it was a good space for relaxing with a hammock. The staff were friendly offering some great tips about the local area and spoke fluent English. We had our first Colombian breakfast here and it was delicious!

I recommend this place highly. It is very clean and comfortable, conveniently located close to the town centre, and has great breakfast too. It also has a very relaxing interior courtyard. The owner, Juan, is a true gentleman and is incredibly helpful, making several phone calls on my behalf to secure trips etc. He also speaks perfect English.

Quiet, relaxing and healthy spot in the downtown of Santa Marta. In Casa Verde, a beautiful aquitecture allows the air to flow all over the house and rooms. A night bath in the jauzzy can be the best plan for resting after a long walk during the day. Don't miss breakfast, are just delicious. I use to have natural juice, ripe fruits from the region (like mango, watermelon, or the seasonal) with the local yogurt, a piece of bollo de yuca with sour cream 'suero costeño' and coffee. The service is wonderful, the warm spirits from the Caribe! you feel like home...

Casa Verde is a hotel you will remerber long after your travel to Columbia. Situated downtown, but away from the noisy streets, it has a unique view of Santa Marta's cathedral. The kindness of the staff will help you discover this unique Caribbean city.

Room Tip: Choose the Cathedral Suite, it is worth it!

Just got back from Colombia for a two week trip with my husband. Casa Verde was a completely wonderful. We stayed there for three nights. Casa Verde was a perfect place to stay while in Santa Marta and visiting Tayrona Park, Minca and local beaches.

From the lobby to the rooms, the detail and design of the hotel is hip and beautiful. We rented room six on the third floor. Our room was very clean, with big windows for great views and solid air conditioning, a refrigerator and stove. The staff helped us figure out our travel plans, avoiding a super tourist route, we felt that we got to travel though the area safely but have a great adventure. This was really helpful especially since neither of us are fluent in Spanish. Casa Verde and the staff it feel like we had a home base in Santa Marta.

We stayed for three nights at Verde as part of one leg of our honeymoon. Santa Marta is a great base for places like Tayrona, Ciudad Perdida, and beaches, and Verde is perfectly situated in the middle of the city's growing tourist scene. Only a few blocks from the bay and many restaurants and squares, it is also a quiet and hip haven that was great to retreat to after long days of site seeing. Juan, the owner, was very helpful directing us to places of interest and coordinating transportation. Our Spanish isn't perfect, so it was very helpful to have a bilingual expert helping us plan our days. On top of this, the value could not be beat. Highly recommend!
