I spent one night in Santa Marta at La Casa de Farol before going to the Tayrona National Park. I arrived late at night and the hotel is located in a small and somewhat poorly lit street. The front staff was very accommodating but did not speak much English. I was able to get settled in pretty quickly however using...

We first arrived after staying in Cartagena and were relieved to be in such a safe relaxing place at a walking distance from busy restaurants with terrasses in animated streets. We got a triple quiet room on the ground floor where we came back after a 4-day trip to La Guajira and enjoyed the small roof swimming pool after the...

This is such a cool little hotel conveniently located in Santa Marta's historic center! The decor in some of the rooms is wild, I vaguely remember crashing out after midnight (flight was delayed) so didn't take much notice at first. When I woke up, I was wondering what I was doing in China! The breakfast was really good and offered...

Set in the heart of Santa Marta, this hotel offers lovely breakfasts, a paddling pool on the roof, and great rooms. The staff are very helpful, speak English and are quite attentive. Even the music they play throughout the hotel is fabulous!

Casa del Farol is a great little boutique hotel in the perfect--safe--location to base out of SM. And a good value for those not in the hostel market. The rooms were beautiful, quiet, and had all necessary amenities. The staff at the front desk were amazing, friendly, bilingual, but also very willing to stumble through my Spanish practice. Parque de...

Santa Marta was a surprise as I wasn't expecting it to be such a lovely place - and this hotel really helped. Our room (Paris) was stunning, huge and decorated with a bit of Parisian flair. The rooftop pool was also a complete delight. And a special shout out to the manager who was brilliant in every way. We left...

Friendly front desk staff. Nice looking courtyard used as breakfast place. Nice looking room, spacious bathroom, AC working fine. HOWEVER there were problems.....1) Unreliable shower (hot water), I had to shower in cold water.....2) No blankets in room, needed some warmth from the AC, which I had to use as the outside temps were scorching. 3) The little decorative cover...

Great Hotel! Staff very friendly and helpful. At least one of the managers spoke English which was a blessing to me! By choice, I had breakfast at hotel a couple of times, it was delicious! Enjoyed my stay here for seven days. Highly recommend anyone staying in Santa Marta to stay here.

I stayed for four nights at La Casa del Farol Hotel Boutique. After staying in Cartagena where no English was spoken at our hotel, it was quite a welcome thing to have staff who were bilingual. The entire property was very clean and well kept, including my room. The air conditioner in the room worked well and television was great....

“Probably better to choose a room to the back of the small street that goes by the hotel, but the hotel is near a corner so this could be difficult. Always ask if there is any construction near by and if the windows are noise proof.”
