Reviewed yesterday NEW

I searched a lot for hotels in Santa Marta and decided I wanted to be on the beach in the safest area - hence Rodadero. Hotel Tamaca was as expected - a buffet breakfast that was good and plentiful, an amazing pool, beach access and comfortably sized rooms. My only complaint is you cannot charge anything to your room unless,...

The room in the last floor - highly recommended- was new and nite. The.view on the Santa Marta bay astonishing. The breakfast in the morning was not so top bit this is not so important on a simply night stop over on the way to final destination.

This place is value for money. Good secure location, with a restaurant over looking the beach. Great views from the room if you can snag the top floor, Bathroom was clean but needed an exhaust fan and the water was not very hot

The Tamaca Beach Resort is a good hotel but not a resort, and although it has long been regarded as one of the better choices for Santa Marta, other first rate hotels have sprung up both in town and in nearby Taganga and Palomino, the latter town being located along the scenic drive past the Tayrona National Park. The buffet...

Nice hotel to Colombian norms. it still has a long way to go, to match to more western style to a "resort", that is a bit overrated. The staff can only help you in Spanish and that is a pitty. It also need a bit of renewing. The food oke but not much variety.

I don't have any other experience in Santa Marta so I would rate this resort a solid 3.5 out of 5 stars. The bed and room are a bit lacking in comfort and updates but the hotel and grounds are fine. The location is great on the beach and pool is nice. Breakfast is a good deal (I think it...

This hotel was a mixed bag. The hotel itself is clean, modern, good view and has the usual amenities (no gym but they offer complimentary crossfit classes). The location is perfect, on the less noisy/crowded sector of the beach at Rodadero and next to a mall with a grocery store/restaurants etc. In the last few months police have cracked down...

We really enjoyed Tamaca resort in Santa Marta. It seems to be the area Colombians like to vacation as well. We are from the U.S. and speak little Spainish, but found it exciting to be around locals and not other Americans! The hotel is one of the oldest in the area, but the views are great from all rooms and...
