We went to Rodadero during the first part of Carnaval activities to escape some of the craziness of Barranquilla. We just wanted to chill out and spend time together. We looked at other options such as hotels and apartments/flats that were available and they were either too expensive or the place was not appealing in one way or another. But...

Hotel Betoma is your best bet (and most bang for your buck) in El Rodadero. The front desk staff is very friendly and always willing to offer a discount. The rooms are simple but very well maintained. And the hotel is always immaculate, especially housekeeping in the individual rooms. The only thing I would recommend is getting a room that...

We were trying a budget option in Santa Marta and TripAdvisor helped us to choose a good option. Actually, most of budget hotels in Santa Marta do not have website and do not offer e-reservation. But, with Betoma we have the help of our mate of TripAdvisor "smc20nt" whom stayed there and provided us the e-mail of Elisa Enciso, that...

I previously stayed in Hotel Tamaca, also in Rodadero, and paid over twice as much for about the same room. The only real difference was that Hotel Betoma is a simple no frills hotel without the restaurant, swimming pool, beachfront and bar. But all of those things are right outside the doorstep of Betoma so it really doesn't matter. Room...

This hotel was a pleasant surprise as we had heard about it thru a friend. One block to the beach, good sized rooms, awesome views and great staff make the no hot water and little electric shocks bearable. Book it

I stayed at this hotel for 10 days straight in April of 2008. It is in a great location half a block to El Rodadero beach. The staff are excellent. The hotel and rooms are clean.

“Go to Hotel Palma Blanca they are the best "" they are truly wonderful honest and professional place, you wouldn't want to go anywhere else, best staff and manager, they would make you feel at home, they even let my husband call me from their phone even though they didn't have to, I am grateful for their wonderful service and taking good care of my family staying with them”
