“Elegant Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

This refined architectural renovation of a brand new hotel is a real find. There are eight rooms and a penthouse apartment surrounding a pool with jacuzzi, extending to an open air dining area and a bar. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and designed with a great style. Several sun decks and common areas are dispersed at different levels and well furnished. The staff and owners are courteous and accommodating. Considering that they opened only recently there are minor details to be worked out, but they are being addressed.
There is short menu of typical dishes featuring avocado and mango that we did not sample but looked appetizing.

Absolutely amazing hotel - out of this world. Staff are exceptionally friendly and so helpful(specially David and Carolina). Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are stunning and elegant. The food at the hotel is also stunning (not pricy at all). Delicious. I honestly think it's the best hotel experience I have encountered in colombia. I would not hesitate to return or recommend this hotel to friends and family. the staff speak English which helped me a lot because i dont speak spanish and they tip me to see around Santa marta!! i booked the hotel for one day just to check it out but the moment i walked in i changed my mind and i ended up staying 4 days! honestly if i had time i would stay even more, just stay inside and relax! i cannot think about anything to complain! Location,Staff,Hotel, just amazing!

I stayed at Casa Carolina for 3 nights and really needed the break from travelling. It is a gorgeous boutique hotel with a wonderfully relaxed and luxurious feel. My room was extremely spacious and I loved the look of the shower in the bathroom. I slept well in the comfy bed and enjoyed having a pool right outside my door. The owners and staff are all helpful and friendly and will look into tours or provide recommendations for anything you need. The breakfast was very substantial and delicious. I ate at the restaurant once and the food was fresh and tasty. I used the spa services whilst staying there and thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing massage and facial. After travelling at a fast pace for some time, I felt renewed leaving Casa Carolina. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it or stay there again, as it is an oasis in Santa Marta.

The first time you walk into this place you'll be shocked at how awesome it is. Beautifully designed, open, spacious and luxurious. The kind of hotel where you could see yourself spending you vacation without leaving the place and still having a great time. Very friendly staff and owner that serve delicious food and make great recommendations on things to do in the area.

Room Tip: Try the food it's just great.

We have just returned from Colombia; we stayed at Casa Carolina for 6 nights in total. The hotel is beautiful and a wonderful place to be, nestled within the hustle and bustle of Santa Marta. The rooms are similar in standard to any top boutique hotel in Europe whilst the pool and roof terrace offer a truly exceptional place to experience the charms of this lovely old Colombian town. We found it a great place to base ourselves whilst taking in beach trips (Taganga; Playa Grande), drives into the mountains (Minca) and seeing the Colombian wildlife (Parque Tayrona). The staff are friendly and helpful whilst the owners, David and Vanessa, are extremely warm and welcoming. It all combines to create a truly unique place which is a must for anyone travelling along the Northern coast of Colombia.

A friend and I decided to spontaneously got to Santa Marta for a relaxing weekend. we looked online for a place that would offer a nice environment, great attention and spa service. This is how we found Casa Carolina and we could not have made a better choice. The beautifully renovated colonial house is a jewel, the room was so comfortable that it mad getting up for breakfast difficult and the food, oh, the amazing food. We liked the place so much we actually didn't leave the hotel all weekend. Sorry Santa Marta, next time, we will pay you more attention.
