We really liked the resort though we had some problems. The positives: The resort is beautiful with all its tropical plants and wildlife (iguanas, getcos, cute capybaras, and birds). The main pool is huge and has a slide and large waterfall. The location is right on the beach and the beach is wide, clean, not too rough, and wasn't too...

They are unwilling to lower the volume to the decibels which the Colombian law foresees for such places. Everybody - even those in the neighbouring apartments and in the restaurant - is forced...

Spent a day (Day pass) at the resort, mainly staying at the pool. Great place ! The pool is nice, not too crowded (maybe because it was jus after the school holidays). Dinner was served on the tables surrounding the pool. Service was good. A really pleasant day!

When considering the beaches of Colombia, I think the first choice one has to make is what type of vacation or experience one wants. For those looking for an escape on the beach without doing a lot of work - I would heartily endorse the Irotama Resort. Outside of the actual city of Santa Marta (10 minutes in a taxi...

Location and service are very nice and the hotel is well appointed and maintained - beautiful pool and above average rooms. However, the food is substandard: meats were tough, tasteless and fish very obviously not fresh - barely edible, if that.
