Really enjoyed staying at the Casa Celta, its in a good location in the historic part of the city close to shops and some great bars and restaurants. The owner is French and fluent in English and Spanish. She is very enthusiastic about what she is doing and is well travelled so is full of usefull advice on the area. The Casa celta has a lovely patio where you have breakfast or a drink at the end of the day, it also has a hammock. It feels very secure and the rooms have brilliant aircons and TVs with a multitude of channels.

Before heading out to Colombia, I had read that Hotel Boutique Don Pepe would be considered a quality boutique hotel anywhere in the world, not just in Colombia. This review convinced me to book and it was completely accurate.
We enjoyed the hotel so much during our two night stay that we barely left to explore the city of Santa Marta. The hotel is decorated beautifully and makes for a particularly romantic setting at night time when the beautiful courtyard pool is decorated with candles. Our room was extremely spacious, well air conditioned, and furnished to a very high standard. The bathroom in particular was stunning.
The chef, who I believe was new, cooked us a delicious meal and it was complemented by a number of cocktails made by the hotel's friendly and welcoming staff. There are 3 roof terraces on which to enjoy the sun, one of which has a jacuzzi, bar, and spa room. The atmosphere on the latter terrace at night time is wonderful and is the perfect way to spend a hot evening.
All in all, Don Pepe is a perfect sanctuary and I would recommend it to anybody. To reiterate the review that convinced me to book, this is a quality hotel by anybody's standards.

This is a charming little place - we came late and were a bit worried at first as the outside doesn't tell much about the inside - it's a lovely hotel, nice, clean rooms and great bathrooms, great breakfast and such nice staff (Antonio). It's close to some good places to walk around and eat and though we didn't head to the beach there it was right nearby.

Staff were super friendly and helpful and the hotel felt like i was at home in a new place. Really enjoyed every minute at the hotel - location is perfect and every morning the breakfast they prepared was better than any other hotel we stayed in during our trip. Absolutely would stay there again!!!!

This is a very nice resort. This is a 4 star resort, but I would say maybe a 4.5. It is not the same as a large 5 star resort that you would see in Mexico or Jamaica but in this area(Santa Marta) it is one of the best and had a very good price when I went(100 Canadian Dollars per night). The hotel and resort location has three pools, with one being on the roof with a sky bar which gives you amazing views of the ocean. The staff are super friendly, and there was usually one person at reception at a time that could speak English. The breakfast was included, and was a typical 4 star breakfast, nothing too fancy but definitely not bad food at all. There are four Santorini hotels close to each other in this area, the Boutique, the villas, the beach club, and the hotel and resort. When staying at either one you can use the pool and other services from any other. The restaurants have very good food, not bad pricing considering it is restaurants in the resort. When you go to the beach near the santorini beach club, you can get a free tent and chairs. and they make sure you feel very comfortable. Just for reference, if you did not have this within the resort, you would need to pay maybe 20 000 pesos for a tent so about 13 or 14 Canadian dollars each time you go down to the beach. The only negative thing I have to say and it has nothing to do with the hotel, is that stores and restaurants in the area can be more pricey than if you go to Santa Marta.
