We stayed here for 3 nights in Santa Marta, and I would definitely recommend the hotel to others. It is beautifully decorated, colorful and clean. The room was nice and big, A/C was great for the heat, and the shower with the window to the...More

Casa de Isabella is an oasis in Santa Marta. Rooms are decent sized (the suite has a rooftop with mini plunge pool - fab!) overlooking a lovely courtyard. Breakfast was good and service was friendly throughout

About
Description
Casa de Isabella pays homage to the charm and history of Santa Marta's colonial era while ushering in a future rich in culture and beauty. Founded in 1525, Santa Marta is Colombia's oldest city. Its natural ...More port provided a refuge from long journeys on Spanish galleons, and its position on the north coast allowed explorers to use it as a base camp for trips to the interior. Casa de Isabella sits in the Centro Historico, the Old City of Santa Marta. This area, first developed after the Manzanares river receded in 1850, holds buildings that reflect traditional Mudejar architecture. The building's original owners inhabited the house for four generations and contributed significantly to the city's growth in the 19th and 20th centuries. In renovating the hotel for the modern era, we consistently chose classic style, maintaining the original integrity of the building and its surrounding neighborhood. Our guests feel the simplicity of Santa Marta's natural charm while enjoying modern comforts. From the greenery of the courtyard to the intimacy of a personal rooftop pool, Casa de Isabella fuses the tranquility of Colombian culture with top quality hotel conveniences. With lighting fast Wi-Fi, complimentary I-Pads, and Apple TV, as well as restored furniture and handmade adornments, this hotel stays anchored in tradition while looking ahead toward a bright future. We have proudly renovated the most beautiful boutique hotel in the Colombian Caribbean. Less

We flew into Barranquilla airport and that is about two hours away. If you go to the beaches in the Rodadero area it is about 20 minutes. Tayrona is a bit further.
