Hotel Betoma
Ranked #48 of 67 Hotels in Santa Marta
Reviewed 15 April 2011

My wife and I chose this hotel based on other reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed - we had everything we needed...a good clean room, hot/cold water, air con, wifi in room, nice view from the balcony, 2 minute walk from the beach. In fact we liked it so much we stayed for one week...this was a great base to relax on the beach or take a local bus into Santa Marta and explore there. We could not book online so we just showed up and negotiated a price of 90,000 COP ($45) per night, which is a low season rate. We had a room on the 6th floor, which is the top floor. In case you want to try and book a room online the email address is hotelbetoma@live.com. The room also had a fridge where we could keep our groceries cold. We had room service every day. The best coffee in town was at a cafe called Cafe Colombia, located across from the gas station right near the main road to Santa Marta. The local buses are very easy to use here and are very cheap - $1.25 per person into Santa Marta, where you can also get another bus to Taganga for the same price. Anyway, we highly recommend this hotel for the value and location.

we read decent reviews about this hotel on this site but had difficulty making a booking on the internet, so just turned up and negotiated a fee.We liked the staff straight away, they offered to show several rooms so that we would be happy to make the booking.The rooms have a nice sized balcony and we chose the top floor (6th ) as it give us nice views over the islands and beach, but high enough to get rid of a lot of traffic noise.The rooms had a decent shower which had hot and cold water, unlike many hotels in this area.Had a decent tv with lots of international channels, very good wi fi, which was free and easy access to the beach, 20 second walk, and all the bars/restaurants in the area.
We paid less than £30 /night which we see as good value for money re the location.
So a nice place to stay at a good price with good service..

We stayed here based on reviews on Tripadvisor, and weren't disappointed. It was a great place to stay as a break from the hostel scene - all the trappings of a hotel (good shower, comfortable bed, quiet atmosphere, cable TV, fridge) but for much less than other hotels we had inquired into (we paid under US$100. The balconies are also great - large, and with nice views of the water.

I stay 3 night at that hotel people where nice and I enjoyed my stay. the only 2 things where wifi in my room was not working well because of the position of the router on that floor which was the 5th but was not a big deal since I was not there for that and they were doing constrcutiuon and was noisy a bit during the day but I was not in the room anyway so did not affect me as well but other then that good place to stay I did pay 100,000 pesos/night and they have hot water which is not the case for all hotels

the room are clean and simple this is not a 5 stars hotel but a nice simple hotel that is great for people with small budget
