Food and beverage choices are limited compared to other resorts of this size and quality. WiFi throughout the common areas is so bad that I had to use the hotspot on my phone. Complete lack of internet connectivity in the rooms despite a WiFi connection. This is a show-stopper for me. Seriously? Guard your food in the main restaurant if... More

Kids loved it as the pools are fantastic and video games decent. Breakfast are great but 5 stars in Colombia is not the same as other countries 5 stars. Ordered one meal there in 5 days and it was very average. Everything there is over priced. There is a mall 10 mind walk where you can get plenty food and... More

The view from the balcony is quite nice as you see the entire resort and the sea and can catch amazing sunsets from that point. Breakfast was really good. Included a variety of dishes both local and international.... More

Zuana Beach resort is a very good hotel located very close to the airport and to "El Rodadero" area. Not so close to downtown Santa Marta. From the airport to the hotel is a 10 minutes ride and the cost is between 15k and 20k pesos. Once you arrive to the hotel there are two gates, the old and the... More
