Our two night stay here was ok, but the room is small and hot. Our airco worked but could not be adjusted. The bathroom is tiny, and the shower gives only cold water. The hotel is a bit out of the way of the center. There is a pool which we did not use.

Im Colombian and I went to Santa Marta for business, this was a unexpected option I find for my last day before going to the Airport, I don’t have regrets is a simple but decent hotel. The room was quite small for two persons but was okay if you want something quiet and close to the beach. The staff is...

I stayed here having read the other reviews and speaking limited Spanish was drawn to it as I understood the owner spoke English. However no staff or anyone spoke any at all which was disappointing. All the staff were very friendly but it wasnt what I had expected. I arrived on a Saturday after three days of travel and exhausted...

After a very bad experience, my wife and I discovered this great hotel in the Rodadero area at Santa Marta. The owner, Adriana, and the staff treated us as the only guests of the hotel. The room was huge, very clean and comfortable. The food was great. The breakfast was included in our rate. It was delicious and always accompanied...

I stayed here for 2 nights in May 2012 and this hotel is truly lovely. The staff are amazingly kind & helpful, the rooms & common areas immaculately clean and it is just a gorgeous place to either hang out or walk into the main Rodadero area. Plus, it's great value for money too! If I'm back up this way,...

When looking for an "affordable" hotel in Santa Marta/Rodadero, I think it would be easy to make a mistake! In fact, our cab driver dropped us off at the wrong hotel just a few doors away and my wife was almost in tears. When we finally made it to Hotel Palma Blanca, we were very pleased! The Hotel is charming,...

This hotel is located in El Rodadero, not in Santa Marta, but this was just fine. El Rodadero is a resort town just south of Santa Marta, and the location was a good stepping off point for Tanganag and Tayrona. The hotel was very clean and within walking distance of the 'downtown' area, but far enough away to be quiet...
