We had a fabulous stay at Villa Maria. Our room was facing the jungle and the views were spectacular. The restaurant was lovely and offered a nice array of local and international dishes. The hotel has a separate walkway to the beach and lovely facilities. We would like to say a special thank you to Leonardo and Jordy from reception...

The location is beautiful and has amazing views. The jungle it is situated within is beautiful. If you do stay there request to be on a room on the upper level. I slept both nights on the lower level of the huts and it is very noise because of the people upstairs and way huts are built with wooden floors....

Even though we had an extremely short stay at Villa Maria Tayrona, we LOVED our stay. It is such a nice, private little getaway with adorable bungalows that provide awesome views and tranquility. We had both the family room and a seaside view double. That room was on the second floor and was an awesome view. The staff was very...

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, and we loved it. It's in the middle of the jungle with amazing views and very clean, comfortable rooms. The pool area is nice even though they are building a new bungalow next to it, it wasn't bothering. The food was good, with vegetarian options although would have loved a bit more...

This hotel is nestled in a beautiful jungle area of Tayrona. The rooms are nestled in the mountain and you feel away from everything. There is a gorgeous path that brings you to a pristine beach (too rough to swim) and it has a nice pool. The restaurant is good, not great however they were extremely accommodating at making menu...

We loved our stay at Villa Santa Maria. The property is beautiful, in the middle of the jungle with a private beach. Public transport is easy to access to get around to PNN Tayrona and Palamino. The staff were so helpful and pleasant. We plan to come back here.

Though our stay was short, Villa Maria was an enjoyable experience during our Colombian vacation. The staff was very accomodating and the rooms were very nice. The a/c wasn't working well in our room, so the on-site manager had the unit changed out within a couple hours. They really go out of their way to make your stay positive. Unfortunately...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Maria combines natural beauty with the comfort of a luxurious resort and the intimacy of your personal country retreat. Surrounded by lush jungle overlooking the ocean, you relax in the shade next to your private swimming pool. Our staff will give you the best welcoming. As you walk the 5 minutes path on your way to the virgin, white sand beach, you will pick avocados, papayas, and bananas right off the tree. Attended by a 24-hour staff, Villa Maria provides daily cleaning, free breakfast, air conditioning, meals upon request, and of course, lots of fresh air. Just 45 minutes from the Old City of Santa Marta, you can expect the same superior quality of amenities and personal service as at all Kali hotels. At Villa Maria, you choose your own agenda. With our on-site staff, all of your needs will be anticipated and met. Drink juice directly from coconuts harvested 10 feet away, or eat fresh fish caught just in front of the local beach. Located 3 kilometres from the entrance to Tayrona National Park, the Villa keeps you close to the park's legendary beaches while giving you the privacy of your own home. Furthermore Villa Maria is the only hotel in the area offering hot water and a/c in the rooms. Local attractions of Quebrada Valencia, the trek to La Ciudad Perdida, and Orinoco can be reached with ease. Our network of hiking trails gives you the authentic sense of exploration felt by the area's first pioneers. Surfing, sunbathing, swimming in waterfalls, or simply walking the grounds will make you cherish every moment you spend at this slice of paradise. At the end of the day, satisfy all of your senses with a comfortable bed and the iconic aroma of the Ylang-Ylang flower, made famous by Chanel No. 5, growing on our gardens. ... more   less
