We loved our stay at Don Pepe! It is a beautiful and chic hotel in a great location walking distance from tons of restaurants and bars. Our room was very spacious and comfortable with a great king size bed. The breakfast was delicious, and the staff very friendly and helpful. We were headed out early in the morning to Parque Tayrona and they made us a to go bag with sandwiches for breakfast and lunch. Wonderful service! Their attention to detail is excellent. The rooftop is a cool place to hang out with a drink while enjoying the warm fresh sea breeze. In addition, their offering of free parking is a big plus. Highly recommend this hotel!

Located in the heart of the old center of Santa Marta, in a nice old building with lot of Charme. Nice patio with a small pool, nice terrace with jacuzzi and some more terrace so plenty of lovely places to enjoy the day or the sunset with a drink. The rooms are Not very big so I recommend you book a luxury or suite category. Due to the old building the water pressure is not really good. They provide Occitane products in the bathroom. Staff is friendly, I would like to mention in particular Nelsy, she is really a great manager and goes out of her way to make her guests happy, nothing is too much asked for her, this is really outstanding. Also to mention Juan, the waiter, always very helpful, attentive, he remembers all your special wishes and is really accommodating. Great job, this is what makes this hotel so special! They also have a beach club which can be used, very nice a relaxing place with a nice pool and lots of space to enjoy a day at the beach (15 minutes drive by taxi). Really a nice small hotel with great staff, I will definitely go back if I am in the area again. It is not the most luxury place but one needs to consider it is Santa Marta and not NYC!

This past weekend my husband surprised me with a Trip to Santa Marta wich I very much wanted to visit and he chose a Don Pepe for our stay,he booked a suite wich upon our arrival we where upgraded to the Lovely Gran Pepe Suite that featured a very nice wide terrace plus an amplious bathroom with a hydromassage tub. He made special requests since it was Valentine’s day however not always you’d expect everything will be exactly as ordered. Champagne was chilled to desired temperature flowers on point lighting just right. The hotel is quite charming set in a colonial house from The 1800s mainting certain aspects of it’s original arquitecture,staff is very kind. The only thing they could have is a more welcoming bar or service so it seems sometimes the property is empty though it is not wich to some this might he a highlight of the place its quiteness. Room service and breakfast should have a menu you can actually look into options for food and drinks. They should level up the food and drink offer if you ask me.

Four of us had travelled Colombia for 2 weeks and finished with this wonderful place to stay before we came home. We were cared for like family with the benefit of English speaking staff. Nothing was too much trouble and the food the best we had been served in the whole trip. It was the perfect treat to end an exceptional holiday and one of the few places in the world that we promise ourselves we will return to. Thank you Don Pepe!

We have stayed 2 nights at Don Pepe. The hotel is perfectly situated in walking distance from all you need and want to see! Although we were a bit shocked how dirty the city is compared to other parts of Colombia, we soon fell head over heels with Santa Marta! Big part of this was the comfortable stay in this clean, well designed hotel with welcoming staff! Special mention has to be done for their guest service manageress!! She is an outstanding example of service to the client! Warm, welcoming and knowledgable about everything around. She goes out of her way, to make your stay as compfortable as possible! Thank you Don Pepe for an unforgetable part of our journey! Until again..... Xx Vanessa & Tony from Malta
