I was at the Hotel for a Convention, since it has an annexed Convention Center. This means proximity to the Convention, and distance from everything else (Barrio El Rodadero, Ciudad de Santa Marta, Parque Tayrona, for instance). Every time I wanted out, I had to get a taxi. My room was not well kept, and I had to ask for...

- Hotel location is good, has its own beach front - Rooms are average nothing really spectacular. Rooms could do with some Colour or uplift with a beach theme. - Have couple of pool options and obviously relax by the beach side. - Breakfast had decent share of options.

I stayed at the Santamar hotel for a business trip and I am glad it was work related. This is not a very good place to go on vacation. It is close to teh airport but not from the Rodadero or downtown Santa Marta. The hotel was under renovation and the noise, dust, and tools were everwhere. Very annoying and...

I stayed in this hotel due to business trip. The food was good, the service was good enough but the hotel needs to improve the cleanliness and the maintenance. The common areas are worn out and the air conditioner is freezing even if you chose a warm temperature.

We stayed at this hotel almost three weeks, which could be a proof enough we enjoyed it there. We had opted for a room at the main building, not a cottage, because we prefer a quiet place, and it really was.
