The location of this hotel is fantastic. It's close to the main square where a lot of the nightly action takes place. 20 minute ride to Tagonga as well. The hotel staff are friendly and willing to help. The hotel gets dinged because it's rough around the edges. Hot water runs out quick, towels are worn, and the beds are... More

I stayed at Casa Del Farol together with my boyfriend and my parents and the hotel was well over our expectations considering the fairly low price. The rooms were spacious and clean, my parents even had a small patio in their room (not suite). Upon arrival, we received welcome drinks and one member of the staff sat down with us... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is very conveniently located in the center of St. Marta but still not too noisy during the night. The room we had was spacious and well equipped. Staff is very friendly, however the service could still improve (replacing all towels, be clear how happy hour works). We liked the breakfast options and... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident, and were soo happy we did! After traveling in a bus for 5 hours from Cartagena, we just wanted to relax. This was the first time that someone had been able to speak english since we landed which was awesome for us who are not too familiar with the language. The staff was... More

We had the Barcelona Suite which was beautiful with its ultra modern Barcelona style design- very well done. The suite comprised a large living room with sofa, coffee table, arm chair, desk & chair, television and minibar containing Pepsi and beer as well as snacks. There were 2 Juliette balconies and 1 full balcony ( in the bedroom) which had... More

I stayed at Casa Del Farol in March 2016 for one night only. I wish I hadn't. They had one last vacancy for the night. The owner of this hotel has 3-4 other properties nearby. I was told they were full too. So I thought I got lucky. My troubles started after midnight. I had some tacos for dinner in... More

Stayed there for one night in the Junior Suite Paris. Really big room, but windows to the street and therefore a bit loud. Nevertheless recommended as the staff is really nice and helpful, breakfast is good and location is beautiful.

We stayed at the Barcelona suite for two nights. Perfect place to relax, comfortable king size bed and spacious bathroom. Views from the roof deck are amazing! The only thing I don't like about this place is that I was not allowed to bring my guests to my room, which I found it annoying. What is the point of having... More

I loved this place as soon as I walked in. All the rooms have character and are individually appointed. The staff were lovely and breakfast was a great choice- I had fried eggs cooked to perfection. There are little extras like a free hand massage and welcome drink, and the rooftop pool and jacuzzi were great. And our lovely room... More

“Probably better to choose a room to the back of the small street that goes by the hotel, but the hotel is near a corner so this could be difficult. Always ask if there is any construction near by and if the windows are noise proof.”
