“The bathroom is part of the room itself!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

I stayed at Don Pepe's for two nights during a business trip. I was in a VERY large room on the 3rd floor. The room was very well appointed and quite romantic. Felt like a shame since I was there on business. The bathroom is part of the room itself with a beautiful glass enclosed shower stall and a wonderful rainfall shower head. So if you're shy and sharing your room, keep this in mind.

Breakfast was served each morning on the tables in the courtyard alongside the small pool. Nothing is rushed here so be sure to allow yourself ample time to just enjoy and savor the feeling of what it must have been like to have lived in this beautiful old home. The family that owns this hotel also owns a newspaper in Colombia and they have old editions bound in huge books in one of the meeting rooms on the main floor. Fun to glance through.

Room Tip: If you do not like to climb stairs or have trouble doing so then be sure to ask for a room on the gr...

My experience at the Hotel Don Pepe was wonderful. My room was beautiful. The hotel facilities are perfect as are the services. The food was amazing & I'm hard to please. My only recommendation is that the rooms can be quite loud with the street traffic. If noise bothers you, bring your earplugs.

We had an amazing time in this amazing hotel in the old city of Santa Marta.
Walking distance from the International Marina and the most amazing beaches in the Tayrona Natural Park, you will never forget this experience. This boutique hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in, an amazing roof top deck, jacuzzi, pool and ambiance.
The chef is in incredible, ask for the cayeye (típical samarian breakfast).
I recommend this hotel 100%. The best in Santa Marta.
