This property is only about four blocks walking from Rodadero Beach. It is not exception but is suitable. The rooms are small and the bathrooms small. The breakfast buffet is very basic, eggs, juice and fruit. One thing, if you like hot showers, this place is excellent, unlike many of the other places I have stayed in Santa Marta.

I would give this hotel a 3 star. It's nice inside by the pool and the restaurant is very clean. The rooms are small ( they do have a/c) the food is good but it's not buffet. They actually serve the food on your plate. What you get and that's it. I guess you get what you pay for. Also... More

We weren't disturbed at all by the bar/disco in front. Really nice swimming pool of a good size and pleasant, roomy communal areas. Service was very good. The... More

Staff is friendly at this hotel. The only major disadvantage is that this hotel is lacking maintenance. The airconditioning was moldy and the rosters missing. Bathroom was moldy and rusty. Overall, not really worth the stay. If you were just looking for a cheap place close to the nightlife area and just look to crash it might work. Otherwise, don't... More

We recently stayed at the Hotel Tayrona for an evening around Christmas. We typically stay at a hotel right on the beach in Santa Marta, but that was booked so we thought we'd try Hotel Tayrona. Terrible terrible terrible place! First we were given a ground floor room with literally no windows, which would be illegal in the USA. When... More
