    Very good

    Very nice hotel on a perfect location. From the room you look over the beach and the hotel pool. The pool has an acess direct to the beach which is really nice.

    The badroom is nice but due to bad construction the water from the shower runs in to the room and there are a lot of mosquitoes in the room.

    Family were very well looked after by the staff of the Hotel. It was a 3 night stay and most enjoyable ....Hotel located on the beach but with a much appreciated pool within the grounds of the Hotel. The child is just 11 months old and was much pampered by the staff. A birthday cake was provided, as requested, for father. A Hotel which will be re-visited.

    Everything was liked about the Hotel. There are no adverse comments to be made.

    Compre una oferta y a la hora de llegar al hotel me asignaron otra habitación completamente distinta a la reservada en booking, manifestando que esta oferta fue sobre vendida por ustedes y que ya no habia disponibilidad.

    Exceptional

    Nos hospedamos por 5 noches con mi esposo y mi hija adolescente. Excelente atención, el personal es sumamente atento, confiable, amable, todos sabían quienes eramos, siempre atentos a los detalles. La ubicación dentro del Rodadero "La Mejor", con playa propia a una cuadra del centro y frente a la salida de embarcaciones para playas en islas cercanas. La mejor limpieza y cuidado del medio ambiente muy marcado. Buffet con desayuno y comidas típicas a un buen precio. Pileta con vista al mar amplia segura para niños. No dudo en volver cuando visite nuevamente Santa Marta y por supuesto lo recomendaré a mis amigos.

    Tal vez algunas sombrillas o carpas adicionales del propio hotel en la playa, si bien había me parecieron escasas.

    Superb

    El personal excelente, realmente hay que destacarlo. El hotel está bien ubicado. Sin embargo hablo del Tamacá Torre Playa, porque hay un Tamacá Torre Norte que se ve muy popular, aunque son aliados, creo.

    Creo que hay algún tipo de convenio con otros hoteles que le permitía a una gente con manillas de colores entrar y salir al hotel desde la playa. Eran bastantes populares y nunca me hicieron sentir tranquilo con mis cosas, además de estar bastante borrachos y ruidosos. Sin embargo, hago la aclaración de que no me pareció que fueran huéspedes del Tamacá Torre Playa. Quizá sí del Tamacá Torre Norte, que se ve más barato.

    Very good

    Geräumige Zimmer (Superior DZ), schön gestaltete Lobby und Restaurantbereich, abwechslungsreiches Buffet, generell gute Küche

    Dreckiger Strand (Müll), relativ kleiner Pool mit wenig Schattenplätzen, kein Wellnesbereich. Die Stadt Santa Marta selbst ist eher weniger interessant. Sehr enttäuschende Innenstadt, Müllentsorgung in vielen Bereichen Fehlanzeige.
