“Fantastic oasis in the midst of Santa Marta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

We stayed for three nights at Verde as part of one leg of our honeymoon. Santa Marta is a great base for places like Tayrona, Ciudad Perdida, and beaches, and Verde is perfectly situated in the middle of the city's growing tourist scene. Only a few blocks from the bay and many restaurants and squares, it is also a quiet and hip haven that was great to retreat to after long days of site seeing. Juan, the owner, was very helpful directing us to places of interest and coordinating transportation. Our Spanish isn't perfect, so it was very helpful to have a bilingual expert helping us plan our days. On top of this, the value could not be beat. Highly recommend!

I stayed here for 4 nights while I was traveling around Colombia and found Casa Verde to be absolutely incredible! The hotel itself was gorgeous with very comfortable accommodations and a great atmosphere perfect for this tropical paradise. Additionally, the staff were extremely pleasant to be around, knowledgeable about the area and made my stay that much better. Having a pool, hammock and a nice lounge area makes this place that even more enjoyable. The area where the hotel is located is lively with several great restaurants around, fun nightlife and easy access to the beach / outdoors. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling throughout Colombia from individual thrill seekers all the way to families on a vacation getaway.

My girlfriend and I recently traveled through Santa Marta and our experience in Casa Verde was amazing. I've stayed at several very nice boutique hotels in Santa Marta, but none as cozy, intimate, and private as Casa Verde -- it really feels like home! Comfortable rooms, service with a smile, and the best recommendations for restaurants and local adventures! The GM, Juan, even came along with us as a tour guide snorkling in Tayrona, kayaking in the Magdalena river, and exploring one of a kind beaches in Palomino!

This is my first ever review..... Casa Verde inspired me to finally write a review on tripadvisor after using it for years to find hotels. I rented the room with the loft. Another person on this site gave it a poor review. Maybe it is not for a family with small children, if your worried about them falling down or off the stairs, but I loved the room and our stay. I stayed with my beautiful Colombian girlfriend! It is definitely a small room in terms of American standards, but it was very efficient. The loft room was 220,000 Colombian Pesos, which is about $120 and included a great Colombian style breakfast! The loft had a small bed on the first level in front of the TV, which acted as the Sofa. I had just come from Tayhrona National park, so I dried all my clothes on the stairs which worked well! The bathroom was very cool with a stone floor and hot shower, which is hard to find in colombia... Walk up the stairs, which are a normal size and u'll find a double bed. I could stand up there no problem and I am 6ft, 2in (prob about 7.5-8ft cielings). Yes the pool is small, kinda jukuzzi sized, but what more do u need then a quick dunk in the humid santa marta climate....All and all it was a great stay and Juan, the owner, showed amazing customer service!

Room Tip: Great for young people who want to see the Colombian nightlife in Santa Marta/ old colonial style bu...

Highly recommended. Our stay here was very pleasant. Although the rooms are small, they are very comfortable. The location is great and the small pool was perfect for cooling off. Our room rate came with breakfast.

A small hotel but with everything you need. Spotlessly clean rooms, a small cooling pool, a pleasant terrace to sit and read, a variety of books available, delicious breakfasts, and helpful staff that speak English well if required. Central for the old town, the port and beach, and a variety of cafes and restaurants. Small double rooms, with well appointed bathrooms. Larger two storey rooms available.

A lovely place to stay - great location. A few minutes walk to the beach, restaurants just round the corner, and a big supermarket across the road. But with all that it was still in an area with heaps of character. The staff are terrific and went out of their way to help with everything. I stayed for a week and felt completely at home there. Loved the place.

I thought Santa Marta was a great place. And it was good being in the historic centre. Days out to beaches in Tayrona are special and a trip up to Minca in the mountain area is well worth the trip.
