À very nice hotel To stay, Good service. Love the rooftop, swimming pool area and garden lovely. .my stay was to short to say more. Staff always in alert even service was kind of slow. The staff did everything to please us.

My husband and I stayed at Don Pepe with 3 couples of friends for the weekend. We had a very relaxing time with delicious food and a great service. We will surely come back and have dinner in the Bacota Restaurant, which was excellent.

We stayed here for a week with our two grandchildren. It was a very happy holiday within a very charming hotel. For us,the outstanding quality of this hotel is the high standard of customer service. The staff are delightful, nothing is an issue for them, and always with a beautiful smile , a special mention to Maria Alejandro, Julo, and Alonso. We were very well looked after, thank you. A point for consideration, some choices for the children on the lunch/dinner menu.

I stay in many of the best hotels with work but I can genuinely say that the don Pepe is up there with very best. The rooms are fantastic, spa excellent (my wife and I had massages) service friendly but not obsequious. The lulu daiquiris were amazing - wonderful salt rim and frozen daiquiri. The interior of the hotel is just right and the location is excellent next to the right spots in Santa Marta for dining - we enjoyed Radio Burger, the balcony at Ouzo and the services of Eduardo Riveira as our guide (+57 (301) 485-9222) Eduardo is great and enthusiastic and offers interesting and informative tours Matthew

This hotel has its own style and flair. The pool is on the main floor courtyard next to the hotel check-in and surrounded by the restaurant tables. It's there more as a large fountain rather than a swimming spot. Our room was large but the window shades were broken and some of the furniture was modern IKEA-ish. The bathroom was new and very well appointed. Breakfast is served and very good. Employees are very thoughtful and attentive. Nice, safe, and clean.

Don Pepe is beautiful. The staff is so very helpful (they kept our extra luggage while we did the Ciudad Perdida trek for no extra charge). The rooms are very nice, and the rooftop bar, spa & social area has everything you need to be able to relax & unwind during your stay. Helpful tip- if you are doing the CIUDAD PERDIDA trek- the company we went with (Expotur) is located just a few blocks away- could not have been more convenient!!!

This boutique hotel has been developed from a former house. Rooms are large. There is a patio pool and roof top seating. Breakfasts are served in the courtyard and prepared to order. It has a good location in the old city and only a short walk to the Cathedral and sea front.

My family and us spent three peaceful nights at the Don Pepe a small but clean, safe and very quiet, hotel in the old town Santa Marta . The staff is magnificent Maria del Carmen in the reception went out of her way to make restaurant reservations, organized a great private day tour to Parque Tayrona and a private transfer by road to Cartagena. The Spa at the hotel is excellent and not expensive at all. The hotel restaurant cook local and international fresh and testy food. The best is the location of the hotel just one block away from the coast (Malecón) and surrounded by many bars and restaurants. I will highly recommend it and will visit it back.

Please go here when you come to Santa Marta! + perfect location, near to buzzling night scene and ocean front + super friendly staff, one of the most friendly we have seen all over Colombia + interior design of hotel + history and renovation with lots of love of the hotel + roof terrace with view and jacuzzi and hammocks + great restaurant, with Italian touch + loving details such as good night pillow sweets, welcome drink, introduction and explanation about history of hotel - it might be a bit loud, better ask for a room on the right front of the house. We had a room on the bottom on the right, it was absolutely beautiful but a bit loud at night because of a strong storm that kept us awake (which is very unusual though and some noises from the night scene 'blowing over' once in a while) We would definitely come back again!

We stayed one night and were very pleased with the hotel and the service. The rooms combine beautiful colonial features with modern amenities. The staffing is caring and very active. We had a lovely dinner at the restaurant! The only small drawback was that our room towards the patio was rather loud at night. Still would recommend staying there.
