Our experience at Tamaca was good by US standards, excellent by Colombian standards. When I was booking I was a little nervous because the US standards are a bit higher than Colombian (service, cleanliness, etc), but we were pleasantly surprised. Pros: The service was above average, people were attentive, the location was perfect, and the price was a bargain. There...

One of the only hotels I've stayed in in Colombia - so not much basis for comparison. But it was clean, staff were friendly and the views are fab. Over holiday seasons it gets a bit noisy, as it faces the beach, where people party all night long - but suspect no hotel will avoid some noise. Free wi-fi. Food...

Despite being in Santa Marta in terrible weather with torrential rain and nightly thunder storms I came back with a positive felling about Santa Marta. Part of this is due to the Tamaca hotel. I found the staff courteous and helpful - especially the guys working the creaking elevator. Food was plentiful and tasty. The views from the balcony, despite...

Great location, service, food, pool, beach and very safe. My GF and I both really liked this resort because of all of the above. Even shopping was awesome just a few blocks away. The evenings just barely surpassed the roof top Mojitos in Taganga at the Ballena Azul. This Tamaca had everything plus more. The room was very nice, the...
