Santorini Hotel Boutique3.5 out of 5.0

Apartments need maintenance. Everything in very bad shape: coffee machine, aircon, the internet connexion, fridge, stove. We also did the "Ruta del Sol" and it was a complete hoax! I realized this was another property of the hotel with the name Santorini Casa Blanca. They charged for the transportation (5minutes from the hotel). The beach was dirty and you can see the carbon port from there. Therefore the beach is contaminated. Photos were completely photoshopped. Breakfast was good but the service very poor. We had to ask to prepare coffee almost every day. We had to get our own cups from other tables. People were not very responsive.
Santorini hotels has 3 different buildings around the area. The best one from our point of view is the boutique and not the principal one. The advantage is that all the amenities besides a pool are on the main building and not in the boutique area so, is almost empty all the time so the pool is just for yourself and is relaxing. Even though is not in fron of the beach (another plus for us), it has a beach club were they include seats and tents for the beach and they save your belongings when you want to walk around the beach. Only thing to complaint is that they charge tips each time you go to the restaurant but you can have them taken away.
Nice and cool place to rest. The hotel service was very good. Beautiful sunsets, private beach, very calm and quiet. 14 Km from El Rodadero and 4 km from the airport. Perfect to rest away from the noise.
We had an amazing time at The complex and didnt want to leave it. I visited it with my boyfriend and we felt very comfortable, the pools are very nice and it has a skybar where you can see beautiful sunsets and eat delicious sushi. Also te beach is very near, clean and calm.
Rooms are OK, but the area is really bad, horrible streets, there are no places to go around. To have break fast I had to walk to the other hotel cuz they offer it there... They were not going to let me in because I didn't have passport. I lost my passport in Bogota that same day and they needed to see it in order to let me in. I understand regulations and all that crap, but It was late night, I was staying for one night and the driver's license, credit card and my passport number weren't enough to identify myself. I was in the middle of nowhere, additionally they were not going to guarantee the charge of the money because they consider that as "no show" even though I did show up but they were the ones that were not going to let me in, this was what really bothers me. Thanks to Leonardo we found the way to stay.
This little resort/hotel is well hidden away down the side streets near the Zuané Hotel. It has beautiful gardens and lovely swimming pool. Staff are good and always around to assist. The rooms basic but neat and clean. When it rains, it's a bit wet in the rooms. But one can expect this in Colombia. Nothing is "leak" proof. The breakfast buffet nothing fancy but still good wholesome food. Caters to everyone's needs. Clean outside area. Just a big problem with mosquitoes, thus a reminder to bring insect repellent. Close walking distance to the local beaches and walking distance to some of the nicest and upmarket hotels. We had cocktails at the Irotama. This place has about 3 different locations in walking distance of each other. Seems that property was bought and converted to their hotel chain. Nice idea's. Neat and tidy. Exploring new places is interesting and allows one to get to know the local people. Santa Marta is a lovely relaxed life.
This place has amazing service. Our waiter had the best attitude and disposition. Nevertheless, he has nothing to work with when talking about what the restaurant serves as food. Food is terrible. If I can spare someone the dreadful experience I had, please never go here. They started serving fried plantains that I am sure were made long hours ago or days before. Shame on you. Then we ordered coconut shrimp offered as the best entree. What we got was a plate with fried shrimp, basically no coconut and full of mayo+tomatoe sauce. We just had to take it back. From then, people just didnt want to eat. So party of 6 we ordered 3 dishes. (Cheapest because we knew we were waisting time and money). Main dishes were regular, nothing we would expect from a Boutique Hotel. Wine was poor , but so cheap we didn't complain. I was sorry for the waiter, he had the best attitude., but kitchen was just terrible. I would never recommend anybody coming here to eat at least. Don't know about lodging. Peace!
Excellent: service and common grounds. The staff was very helpful and the common grounds were nice (pools and sitting areas). Very Good: Skybar, restaurant, and breakfast- at Santorini Resort. Every day I would go to the skybar to watch the sunset and have a Limonada de Coco. The menu is limited but it is perfect for drinks. The restaurant is also very good. They have a daily special menu and a variety of dishes. We went for the convenience (it was close by) and had dinner two nights. Breakfast is very complete (eggs, cereal, fruit, yogurt, breads, arepas, juices, jam, turkey slices, cheeses, rice, soup, and coffee). The coffee could have been hotter. Normal: The rooms could use a little remodeling. We stayed in room 103. It was dark, but I didn't mind since I slept longer in the mornings. We also did not spend much time in the room. The room was clean and the AC worked well. Poor: The Beach Club. It was not what I expected from the pictures. Staff was very friendly, but we didn't use the facilities. Santorini also offers a Plaza that sells food and has a supermarket. There is also a food mall that you can go by taxi ($3) and has a Crepes and Waffle, Pizza place, and other restaurants. Overall for the price that I paid, Santorini Hotel Boutique was a very good option. I went with my husband and 3 month-old daughter and we had a relaxing time. Santa Marta beaches are not beautiful, so the trip is worth it only if you are also visiting Tayrona Park.
I found Santorini Boutique Hotel through Hotwire.com and booked a room for two nights. I was staying in a decent $70/night hotel in central Santa Marta, but decided to move to a hotel closer to the airport. Let me start off by saying the MAIN reason for staying at this hotel was to relax after a day trip to Tayrona and to utilize the SUPPOSED airport transfer. I am currently staying here, and was just told by the woman at reception that they needed 24 hour notice for an airport transfer. I basically gave her a 22 hour notice, but she claims they still cannot provide the transfer. This "24 hour notice" is not mentioned ANYWHERE. There are very few guests at the hotel, which is being HEAVILY remodeled, and the airport is 5 minutes away, but they still claim they cannot provide transfer. This is a simple request made of an alleged luxury hotel chain, and they have made no efforts to assuage my frustration. Besides the airport transfer, the overpriced restaurant and fitness center are actually located in the Santorini Resort Hotel which is two blocks away. I will say, the breakfast, which is included, was satisfying and opens at 6 am. The location is also very sketchy. The area, which is considerably south of Santa Marta, is under major construction. Many high-rises are partially completed (who knows how long they've been that way), and there are NO other options for food or groceries. The general construction of the hotel seems hurried and thoughtless. My double room had a window that only looked out to the room across from me, and the bathroom toilet's flush handle was wedged next to the sink structure. The positives are that the room was cleaned when I returned from my day trip, as it should be; the breakfast was open early and adequate; the male receptionist was able to assist us in organizing a private taxi to Tayrona; and the internet has been consistent. I would not recommend staying at Santorini Boutique Hotel and would altogether avoid this location.
I stayed at the santorini hotel and resort in april and had a great time. The staff is very friendly and the rooms nice and clean. The small rooftop pool is a great place to hang out and enjoy the view. It is south of Santa Marta and Rodadero but I found the beaches in this area much nicer. I think the area is called Bello Horizonte. It's a $5.00 cab to rodadero and $10.00 to Santa Marta. I found Santa Marta much nicer and more to do than Cartagena. Try the restaurant!!
