Good food, the staff is very friendly. The service of this hotel is also very good. The beds are good, but a little hard. The shower water is lukewarm. But all in all, the hotel, the beach, the bedroom is large, and the location conformity the price are excellent.

We stayed at this hotel as last resort when our booking.com reservation didn't go through. We thought it was expensive for what it is: no elevator, awful service, no hot water and sometimes no water whatsoever and the breakfast was simply dreadful. We left as soon as we could.

I stayed at La Riviera hotel in Santa Martha and I just need to say that whether you are short of money or you just want to save it. This hotel is a perfect choice. Nice service, clean, it has air conditioning, acceptable food, close to the Rodadero beach. Well-located and good prices it can summarize my commentary.
