We stayed in this hotel for 11 nights and loved it. Pros: - Perfect location in the Old Santa Marta, one block from the Cathedral, two blocks from the Parque de Los Novios, and close to many good restaurants. - A nice pool terrace on the roof, with views of the Cathedral. The pool is small but you will have...

Loved this hotel. Great location, price and friendly staff. Had an awesome themed room. Look out for the New York room. I brought back some little critters from my lost city trip and the staff fumigated the room without a worry. Would stay again.

We arrived at the hotel after having seen all the beautiful pictures on their site. Trust me when I say, the pics don't show the reality. We paid a lot for very average rooms, with windows facing barbed wires, uncomfortable beds, not very professional staff at breakfast, Nesquik instead of real hot chocolate, some loose tiles on the bedroom floor...

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...
