“Great welcome at charming home from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Impossible to fault. When Gwendoline welcomes you into her lovely home, she does so as a friend not a guest. Instantly felt at home and changed travel plans to extend our stay here.

The house is centrally located in the fun buzzy centre but in a quiet side street permitting restful nights. It's been sympathetically refurbished blending traditional and contemporary with a unique twist.

The terraces are lush and inviting and nothing is too much trouble as Gwendoline goes the extra mile to keep her guests happy. She is a font of local knowledge and tailors her tips to her indivual guests desires, thus ensuring the very best experiences of local amenities and attractions.

Would not hesitate to recommend Casa Celta and will certainly keep in touch.

Room Tip: They are all good rooms - we tried two!

Lovely colonial house in a more residential yet still central part of Santa Marta, ideally located within walking distance of all attractions. Gwendolyn was a superb hostess and made me feel at home from the first minute. Lovely enclosed courtyard and rooftop terrace. I stayed in the twin room in the main house, while there are 2 other doubles in the addition.

Room Tip: The street side single room can be a bit noisier until bedtime but the rooms at the back are quiet.

My partner and I used this B&B as a base to explore the area for 5 nights. We enjoyed the small nature of the hotel (3 rooms) and central location. The home is nicely decorated with various travel art from around the world. Gwendoline (owner) is extremely helpful in providing travel advice and accomodating individual needs. The accomodations were always clean and the freshly squeezed exotic juice in the morning was delightful ! The hotel seems to attract a young professionals scene with a mix of people from around the world. The hotel is Wi-fi equipped with air-con in all rooms and very secure.

My partner and I stayed for two nights and were very happy with our room, breakfast and all the help Gwendolyn provided us with. She was very happy to answer any question we had, had suggestion for things to do around Santa Marta. Our room was clean and nicely decorated and the terrace made for a good nightcap! Prices were excellent for quality of room and service.

If you are looking for a clean , quiet place with a comfortable bed , quiet air - con , good lighting in a thoughtfully - designed room , not to mention a friendly welcome , you have come to the right place .
That was my experience chez Glendoline .
There are many restaurants nearby , the sea - front ( with even more restaurants ) is only 10 mns away , the area safe .
