Reviewed 4 June 2015

Hotel is getting very dated, restaurant service is slow at the best of times. Food below average. Service at the pool area is hit and miss. Check in / out painfully slow, ask for internet password as they do not always offer one, service in the room is best described as very slow.

This hotel was so noisy, I had to check out after 2 hours. They still made me pay for 1 night. But I had to plead with them for the refund of the other 2 nights that I prepaid. It is close to the main road where you can hear the beeps from cars, (which is normal in Columbia) and...

We stayed at this hotel with a group of 6 friends. They are dishonest. Charged us the 16% VAT and said we could get it back at the airport. They said they were required to do it. When we got to the airport, they said they did not reimburse for hotels. Tamaca was the only hotel of the four hotels...

In Santa Marta in the Rodadero there is not to much to choose. So, this hotel is the place to stay for business bit out of the crowd with a very good service. Tamaca has tradition in Santa Marta it has two buildings, one on the beach and the other just next to it, more for business (north tower) The...

The price is just plain evil and immoral during early January for what they offer. I paid $270 for a room in the cheaper tower across the street and got very basic accommodations where we could hear a man in the room next door making snorting noises during the night. The food buffet included was mediocre. Internet was good. Otherwise...

Pretty much the only nice thing about this hotel is the pool and eaSy access to the beach. However we walked to the beach after paying to spend the day at the hotel and nobody outside had anything to do with the hotel so we had to pay again just to get beach chairs. We then decided to walk back...

Had to stay in Santa Marta for the weekend and someone told me about the Tamacahotel. I think there are better boutique hotels in Santa Marta for the same price , or less . Lining was dirty and the service was rude . I do find very convenient the location .

I enjoy staying here and have stayed several times. Wifi is free and reliable. The beds are firm and the room is clean. The pool has recently been completely reconstructed and is less than a year old. I prefer to stay on the main site and don't stay in the tower.

Great location for a good prize. We stayed at the tower that is in the back for a better price but if you get the fifth floor you may get the ocean view. Breakfast is all you can eat and different local options every day. Service is good. You go to the beach by walking one block and you get...
