Casa del Farol
Santa Marta old town (Santa Marta and Tayrona, Colombia)
A charming, small hotel with a cosmopolitan theme in the heart of the old town (a minute's walk from the cathedral). The hotel is one of several small hotels in Snta Marta owned by a friendly Spanish couple from Barcelona. There is a jacuzzi on the ground floor and small pool on the rooftop terrace which offers lovely views of the cathedral. Only breakfast is served.
There are around twelve rooms each named after a city that the owners have visited and loved, each individually decorated around that theme.
A lovely, good-value option in the heart of Santa Marta. Staff are incredibly helpful.
