The reason that i chose this property over Hilton Garden Inn was its pool and amenities around it. Last time while i was staying in Hilton I was envious of that pool in Marriot. So when i decided to go to Santa Marta, i immediately decided that I want to stay in Marriot soleley for that pool. The price was higher than Hilton and did not include the breakfast.i booked the hotel a day before my arrival. The first picture in expedia showed the pool. There were two other pictures that showed the pool as well. When we have arrived we have been told that the pool was under renovation and we can go to Hilton to use their pool. My response to the day was that if i wanted to use hiltons pool, i could of booked hilton. At the end the manager only offered to give us complimentary breakfast and not even a room upgrade. He simply said that if we don't like it, he can just cancel our reservation and we can go elsewhere. The problem was that Hilton which would of been my other choice was completely booked. So we had no choice but to stay. Once we got to the room, the room had some very weird chemical smell. Once again the manager said that it was normal. We left the window open for about 5 hours but the smell didnt go away. We called the night manager and he came up to our room and explained that they use some kind of chemicals in the ac system and that causes that smell. So for two nights we had to sleep with the window open and without the ac. Overall we had the worst experience

There were some issues in the room pertaining to plumbing, shower functionality, coffee maker, non functioning bed lighting. Overall not worth it. For over 100 US dollars per night, we were expecting much more in Santa Marta. Unfortunately, the streets surrounding the building were filthy with animal feces and human garbage. I don't recommend staying here, unless you're cool with all the above.
