Great location for a good prize. We stayed at the tower that is in the back for a better price but if you get the fifth floor you may get the ocean view. Breakfast is all you can eat and different local options every day. Service is good. You go to the beach by walking one block and you get the best view, the best beach and the best pool in town! Waiters are well trained and food is good.
The tourist booth is very good. You may find better prices outside the hotel but it is safe to go with their guides.
If you are an international traveler and want to go to El Parque Tairona make sure you pay the international fee and confirm the amount you MUST pay. We had an incident were they overcharged us, did not give us the invoice and never gave us our change back:(

Room Tip: Fifth floor,ocean view, tower behind.

Pool best thing at hotel, nice room, food OK, too much attitude from employees, especially Breakfast server at Hotel Norte and Carp man in front of beach. Be insistent to not accept mediocrity, a lot of attitude here by breakfast server at Norte and beach carp man, they treat you badly, don't want to do their jobs, ask for food for free night stay, demand quality, they have a game going with AviancaTours/ViajesExito, games with free night,but no food included, but none of them tell you that and the hotel never wanted to solve the problem or be solution oriented, although they are part of the package deal with the tour companies and Avianca airlines. The beach and pool are the best things about the hotel stay here.

Room Tip: Be insistent to not accept mediocrity, a lot of attitude here by breakfast server at Norte and beach...

dark mold over all bathroom,water pressure a trickle,use of the pool requires a two block walk across a busy street, and cockroaches on breakfast table.
a 4ftx4ft mirror fell off the wall while i was not in, and they attempted to charge me with the cost of repair!

Room Tip: avoid where possible

We stayed at this hotel in January 2014 and found the place absolutely fantastic. The views from the rooms in Torre Beach were fantastic and the swimming pool absolutely divine. Our stay included breakfast and one other meal which was nice and the service in the restaurant was fantastic. Unfortunately the service in the pool bar left a lot to be desired in a ?4 star hotel. Otherwise an enjoyable place to stay with excellent facilities.

Room Tip: Stick with Torre Beach for beach views

Stayed here for three nights, in the beach side tower (as they refer to it, it's not really a tower). The food is good and we ate dinner there a few times. Breakfast was pretty good too, plenty of choice and a good egg chef. The place as quiet in the evening after the resident band finished at 10 pm, the bar closed very shortly after. Not a spot for a evening of entertainment. Bars and club and good restaurants are a cheap taxi ride. Great mall across the road with several ATM,s. Staff friendly and rooms a good size and clean. It is not a modern hotel as such, bit dated. We were there in the evening windy season, so a loud gale sounded through the poorly sealed windows in the room. Wi Fi was good. I would recommend this hotel as long as you were happy with clean and comfortable and not looking for luxury.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the beach.

Enjoyed the food the location, good for relaxing, very nice and friendly staff. As good as when we visited in 2006. Not the cheapest but good value for money. New Mall at walking distance, Santa Marta is a must visit when in Colombia.

Room Tip: all rooms face the ocean, the oldes and best hotel in santa marta.
