The place was recommended to us by a friend, and it suited our needs just fine. It's not fancy but the price is right. Breakfast was a little slow, but healthy. I would go back. The staff were friendly and we felt safe, regardless of a massive festival going on a block away. If you are not a fan of...

We enjoyed our time at Santa Marta Real. Close to the historic centre, but without the high prices. Convenient to walk to the beach, restaurants etc. The room was comfortable and clean and the staff very pleasant and helpful. A good stay

Based on the reviews I had read on here, I thought the hotel would be bad, but I thought it was well priced and had good value. The rooms were comfortable but not extravagant, and the hotel overall was really clean. I thought the staff was very helpful and friendly. Downsides are that the hotel restaurant was very windy, since...

We were very satisfied with our stay at Santa Marta Real. The location might get a little bit dangerous at late hours, but you can always take a cab just to be safe. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the serve eggs with toast or arepa for breakfast. The terrace is very nice too. The price-benefit is excellent!

Oh how I wish I had read the reviews before booking. I wasted a whole day at the beach, which is really the point of going to Santa Marta, because the staff would not take care of my luggage after I checked out at 10 or so. They literally told me that because I had already paid them, they no...

I recently stayed here for a few days on a recent trip to Santa Marta. It's a decent hotel if a little expensive for Colombia I thought. My room was small but comfortable with a king-sized bed and small but clean bathroom.It featured decent black out blinds, a good LCD TV with a few english speaking channels, and an electronic...

A very nice hotel - excelent rooms. Clean and tidy. We felt like a part of a big family. The service and food was excelent as well. All personel was highly qualified for their work. The hotel is placed close to the beach, banks and other services in the center of Santa Marta. Regards Ole Petter Johnsen - Norway

This hotel overcharges for basic rooms with very small bathrooms…It is essentially an over-priced, over-rated dump and is frankly best avoided altogether. The reception/lobby looks very presentable and in fact so does the rest of the hotel on first inspection…However the walls are paper thin and the place has no roof (a terrace on the top floor is covered by...

The hotel is two blocks away from the central square and the market and only 100m or less from the seafront. The street is really run-down and gives you a disappointing first impression, but in the end we thought it was safe. The hotel itself is very clean and tidy, has wireless internet and two or three computers in the...
