“Good service, great location!”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Casa Carolina is a beautifully remodeled building in colonial Santa Marta. The three of us who stayed there had just returned from the hike to the Lost City, and it was lovely to be greeted with a glass of fruit juice and a refreshing wet towel to clean off our dust-covered faces. The rooms were nice, beds were comfy. Pool was being filled that day so we weren't able to enjoy it and you could tell that some work is still being done on this recently opened hotel, but overall I really enjoyed the experience and think it is a great option if you are not on a backpacker/hostel budget.

David was extremely helpful and informative. I was one of the first guests at the hotel and treated very well. Also, being a solo female traveler, and not speaking Spanish, i had a lot of questions about the area. The rooms were clean, modern and well decorated (minimal). I'd recommend Casa Carolina to anyone en route to Parca Tayrona or Cartegena. Santa Marta is more of a stop over town between the two attractions. It feels like an up-scale back-packer city with more restaurant options than the neighboring towns. Note: don't walk back to the hotel late at night alone, there are still sketchy people lingering in the streets who will threaten you.

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.
