Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed 2 nights in Hotel del Mar. The hotel is not in Santa Marta, but in Rodadero, a 5 km from the city of Santa Marta. Modern hotel, good room, very clean. Very friendly too. The breakfast is good, but not outstanding. Nice to eat on the terrace at the small swimmingpool. Free water provided in the hotel. Good location, close to the sea and the promenade, and close to a lot of restaurants and shops. We went a day with open bus to Bahia Concha in Tayrona NP. Lovely day. The bus leaves very close to the hotel.

It's a great option for someone who likes the beach. It's super clean. The breakfast is very good.The rooms are nice, not huge, but ample. My room had a good view and a small refrigerator. It's a very short I block walk to the beach! I first stayed there 6 years ago and stayed every year since.

We’ve been in Peru and Colombia for 6 weeks and this was comfortably the worst service We’ve gotten. Especially one of the receptionists gave so bad service that we actively avoided her. The only reason for 2/5 is that the other receptionist was very good ans helpful. The third (a man) used more than 20 minutes on checking us in, despite us having been checked in before and he even started attending to other people while we had to wait. Really really poor.

In addition to that there’s no english spoken (despite advertising otherwise), the rooms are poorly isolated so there’s a lot of noise from outside. The aircons Seem Old because they also make a lot of noise.

Great hotel in El Rodadero. Good service, facilities and location (2 blocks from the beach, 2 blocks from the bus stop to Santa Marta). I loved the swimming pool and breakfast (they offer traditional dishes like "arepa de huevo", "butifarra", "bollos", so you can eat as local).
Comfortable bedroom with AC and clean bathroom. Recommended!

As a Tripadvisor DESTINATION EXPERT for Colombia with 30 years of visits and now living 4 years in Medellin and exploring just about every city large and small - it is my pleasure to provide this reasoned and accurate review of the Del Mar Hotel.

My travel partner and I just drove in from Cartagena to Rodadero and as soon as we arrived found the hotel which is very good located. As this was our second stop as we travel the whole coast of Colombia were were ready for some rest and relaxation as this hotel provided exactly what we needed.

I had been to Rodadero a few times before but this is my first stay at the Del Mar Hotel.

The reception desk were very welcoming and friendly and quickly got us checked into our room and then gave some good instructions about use of the pool along with breakfast hours and other important info.

Our room was located on the 3rd floor and I applaud the hose keeping staff as our room was spotlessly clean, everything was in order and all items in the room worked and zero issues. They must take maintenance seriously as I could not find something in the hotel room or the common areas or the pool that was not working.

On word of advice to the hotel manager - let your hotel staff house keeping people know not to meet in the hallways and talk on the walkies-talkies radios so loudly at the start of their shift at right before 8 AM, the loud talking echos throughout the hallway and into the rooms and does wake the hotel guests up should they be sleeping. Be mindful of this advice please.

The breakfast was simple but freshly prepared and a good way to start the day. Again the staff waiters very as quick and efficient with serving breakfast as they could.

The pool is also kept spotlessly clean. I could not find even a light bulb that was out and not working so again they keep the grounds very well maintained.

As I drove from my home in Medellin I have a car but the hotel does not have any garage but no problem as I parked right in front of the hotel and it sat for 3 days while we stayed with no issues.

If I could offer any advice just be aware that on some nights there will be noise in the street below, this is a beach touristy town in Colombia after all, so I suggest that you request a room on the upper floors or better yet get a room located in the courtyard side.

The check out process was as quick and simple as could be. The front desk made a quick call to the housekeeper and they confirmed everything was good in the room and we were on our way.

I easily give a 5 star rating as the service and the comfort and the value is excellent at Del Mar Hotel.

Highly recommend and I will stay again next time I am on the coast.

My fiancé and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and it was a great, relaxing way to end our 3 week trip around Colombia. The room was very clean and so quiet. We loved the pool as it’s a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the beach vendors. However if you do like the beach it’s literally around the corner from the hotel. Also there are a lot of shops, restaurants, and a shopping centre all in walking distance. The breakfast was a amazing and everyday there was so much choice and lovely fresh fruit. We definitely recommend this hotel and would come again if we ever stay in Santa Marta again.

This hotel was nice, with clean spacious rooms. Service was fine and the pool is charming and relaxing. My biggest complaint would be that there is no parking. If you drive here, be prepared to leave you car in the streets somewhere. We did, and had no problems. My advice would be to take a taxi. We didn’t need the car at all. The beach is a very short walk away. It was crowded (even in January). If you’re looking for pristine Caribbean beaches that are worthy of an Instagram post... keep looking. We eventually went to the Playa Blanca, it was marginally better, but just marginally.

Clean rooms with comfortable beds. Friendly staff. Great WiFi and close to anything you would need. The staff don’t speak any English so be forewarned. Breakfast was really well done for this price point. Large selection and really tasty. Only in for a night but I would recommend it totally.

The only thing that was annoying was the wrist band because it meant vendors and people on the streets knew we were tourists and kept trying to sell us things. The amount of people selling things and following us was unbelievable.

The hotel was great.

Do not go to playa blanca. Tour guides outside will try and sell the trip to you but it is dirty and the sand is awful. Dont fall for it.
