The place is very beautiful and I was really surprised to find such a nice place in Santa Marta, and will definitely go back. The setting is amazing and the rooms not only spacious, but also very comfortable and modern. The rooms has all the most modern tech gadgets (apple TV, antenna, internet, etc) and the comfort of a 4-5 star hotel. They also have a nice touch in its decoration and liked every corner of the room.
The breakfast was delicious and the table setting also nice, though they seemed to be understaffed while attending the guests, or maybe inexperienced, since they only had to attend three tables, which is their capacity. Though it doesn't affect my overall concept, it's something they have to work on. I also would like to comment the front desk guy who did my check out, forgot to coordinate my cab from Villa Maria (their gem in the Tayrona Park) which nearly made us miss our flight. It was quickly solved by the administrator of this hotel, who got us a cab in a hurry (45 minutes away, but still made it).
I strongly recommend this hotel!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa de Isabella pays homage to the charm and history of Santa Marta's colonial era while ushering in a future rich in culture and beauty. Founded in 1525, Santa Marta is Colombia's oldest city. Its natural port provided a refuge from long journeys on Spanish galleons, and its position on the north coast allowed explorers to use it as a base camp for trips to the interior. Casa de Isabella sits in the Centro Historico, the Old City of Santa Marta. This area, first developed after the Manzanares river receded in 1850, holds buildings that reflect traditional Mudejar architecture. The building's original owners inhabited the house for four generations and contributed significantly to the city's growth in the 19th and 20th centuries. In renovating the hotel for the modern era, we consistently chose classic style, maintaining the original integrity of the building and its surrounding neighborhood. Our guests feel the simplicity of Santa Marta's natural charm while enjoying modern comforts. From the greenery of the courtyard to the intimacy of a personal rooftop pool, Casa de Isabella fuses the tranquility of Colombian culture with top quality hotel conveniences. With lighting fast Wi-Fi, complimentary I-Pads, and Apple TV, as well as restored furniture and handmade adornments, this hotel stays anchored in tradition while looking ahead toward a bright future. We have proudly renovated the most beautiful boutique hotel in the Colombian Caribbean. ... more less
