a nice comfy place to call home esp. when sick
The Solymar Hostal is a modern mid-range option in Santa Marta and after checking out some of the cheaper options on the darker side of town, it seemed very reasonable even if it was one of the more expensive rooms we had stayed in up to this point. There were no common areas and the rooms were a bit on the small side but it was very clean, with a comfortable bed with fresh clean sheets but oddly no blanket. The air-conditioning worked very well. So well in fact, we had to break out our sleeping bags to stay warm. Without the A/C the room was stuffy and a bit humid. The private bath was also modern and clean, something quite important when one of your party has a bad stomach which was the case during our stay.
Unique Qualities: It is only one block from the waterfront and in one of the nicer parts of town so exploring at night is not a problem and finding something to eat is easy and convenient. The front desk staff were helpful and not obtrusive. In a town like Santa Marta where tours are their bread and butter, this is a real blessing, especially if you are planning on finding just the right tour yourself. We left our extra gear with them twice when we did our tours and felt very comfortable that everything would be there on our return.
It was 60000 COP ($30) per night but that was with a slightly cheaper price due to our staying three nights. We wound up staying two other single nights in between our jaunts to Tayrona and Ciudad Perdida and they charged us the same on these occasions too.
