On our recent trip to the Colombian Coast we stayed at the Plaza Gourmet and we were not disappointed, a good quality boutique hotel located in the heart of the old town in Santa Marta with friendly and helpful staff. We must extol the restaurant, a high caliber establishment serving excellent food. We will be more than pleased to return...

There were a few real concerns. 1.

I live in New York City where I have lived most of my...

I spent a couple of nights here in a very charming room on the second floor, overlooking a beautiful garden and courtyard. There is a small jacuzzi type paddling pool which is ideal for cooling down in if one is sunbathing or relaxing in the courtyard. It is a family run business and feels very much like you are a...

I allways travel with my dogs, two teckels, so it is allways a problem to find a good hotel that is pet freindly.... Hotel Gourmet Plaza is the perfect place to stay after a 15 hour drive from Bogota with my dogs. The terraza room is perfect, big, very clean, excellent decoration, private terrazas.

I have written a separate review of the restaurant at the Gourmet Plaza. We are staying at the hotel for a week. It is a wonderful hotel, reminding me of a Moroccan Riyad. There is a small open central courtyard where you can sit surrounded by trees and plants (and check your emails with the free wifi). Our room is...

We decided to sludge on a hotel for two nights. being introduced to our retold and insect filled closet was a surprise to me. The price for food was triple what it cost outside the hotel.
