First of all remember that this hotel is an all inclusive site.
We had a room in the last floor and we had 2 floor room that was amazing. You should plan everyday at 5:30 to see the sunset in your room, it's just jaw dropping.
The food is good. We would like to have more sea food options in the buffet.
The liquors are good(not premium ones) but the bartenders have different ways to make cocktails so sometimes are good other ones no so good.
The beach is no so clean because the carbon. It has a carbon port near but it's ok. If you want to see great beaches, you should go to tayrona park. Decameron has special plan in order to go to this park.
Taxi cabs are kind of expensive and uber is not so available in that part so bring extra money for that.
Rodadero is a place between santa marta and the hotel that is a must to see. Its and old beach that are recovering and they have special restaurants and places to buy things.

We spent a great days as a couple , if you are with kids Decameron has special shows everyday for them and for families as well.

Stayed: July 2017, travelled as a couple

Very friendly staff : the receptionist gave us a very warm welcome. The waitress at the hotel were always helpful. The entertainment and activities were good.
Nice clean rooms. Lovely food
The staff here are great to everyone and the desk crews were always eager to get you things you needed. This was a first rate experience and one I will look forward to repeating next year!

I was 2 days with friends and Family. Decameron name was for me highly recommeded hotels. But everything turn down when we arrived and during our stay. The facilities locks old and unconfortable. The check-in was filled out manually. No small refrigerator in the rooms, with hot weather.They dont have wifi free in order to have it, need to pay and just coul reach in the reception. . Only pointing basic things that became worse if you want to go deep. The odors in the facilities were not good. Only the staff made the stay very confortable. But these facilities need renovation.

Estimado Huésped,
Es muy importante para el equipo del Hotel Decameron Galeon Santa Marta conocer sus comentarios sobre su estadía en nuestro hotel.
Lamentamos los inconvenientes que se presentaron pero queremos informarle referente a sus comentarios que constantemente estamos remodelando habitaciones a medida que la ocupación lo permite, generalmente no podemos cumplir lo que nos proyectamos, porque gracias a los servicios que ofrecemos contamos con huéspedes en todas las temporadas muchas veces huéspedes que repiten su estadía en el hotel por cumplir con lo que ofrecemos. A medida que se remodelan las habitaciones, estas quedan totalmente dotadas de lo necesario. En estos momentos el hotel se encuentra analizando un proyecto para implementar la red wifi en todo el hotel. En este mes de febrero se realizaron algunos mantenimientos en áreas comunes que pudieron alterar algunos olores fuertes. Trabajamos en pro de una mejora continua, con la colaboración de todo el personal que ante todo brinda calidez humana a nuestros huéspedes.
Esperamos contar con una nueva visita.
Santa Marta lo espera.

Claudia/ Calidad
