“Pricey but good”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

I found it pricey but very good. The staff is friendly, the rooms are nice. The restaurant is very nice and it has a great view of the "Sierra Nevada".
Once you jump out the the cab, they will try to make you feel at home. I had a pleasant stay here. The location is great, you can walk to the Plaza Alfonso Lopez.
I traveled alone but I felt safe.
I would definitely return to Valledupar and stay here again.

Room Tip: The view of the pool is fine but I had a very very small window.

This hotel has very nice large rooms, with a large bed and modern bathroom. internet quality is very good, or at least it was during my visit.
The restaurant is sometimes slow and service is average, but they have good food. Try the green mango juice. Ambiance is perhaps a little lacking in the restaurant...
There is a nice pool area but watch out for mosquitoes (and bats at night!).
I really enjoyed staying here and it indeed feels quite secure.

The Tativan is a modern hotel.. the staff might not be brilliant, but they are good, and for some reason, the place is very secure. I smell that some local businessman wanted a place that would feel safe from recent historical happenings. It's built like a bomb shelter, the walls are thick and the windows small, which is a bit of a shame because the views on both sides are amazing, towards both the Santa Marta and Eastern Mountain range bordering Venezuela. Some of the Bellmen carry guns as well. Everything is slightly better than adequate, and there is a bit of spirit in the photos of famous Vallenata musicians in the lobby. Things to watch out for are the music by the pool being endless, although not loud, and some preacher that rents out ther confrence room at like 9am on sunday morning, along with another one a few blocsk away, and rocks you awake as if to shame you for enjoying your saturday night with a full band. Interesting things nearby are a lot of fashion and fabric shops, which I found surprising, and there is one OK restuarant a block away, towards the center of town, which bills Carribean food, but is a better version of standard colombian fare. All in all Valledupar is a city you might want a reason to be in, but this hotel works well enough...

We stayed at the hotel because we had an invitation for a wedding party in the same property and also wanted to visit the Valledupar Cattle Show. The room was very clean and has very comfortable bed & linen. Air conditioning is very good. The hotel is under some repairs by the pool area. Breakfast is a buffet that can be improved a bit, making eggs on demand. The hotel location is near downtown just 3 blocks away from "La Plaza Alfonso López", surrounded by shopping and banks. We called maintenance and they responded quickly to our requirements.
