City: Santa Marta, Colombia // Loyalty Program: Hilton Honors // Stay: February 2019 / 4 nights
We chose the Hilton Garden Inn Santa Marta because it was the only hotel of the Hilton Group and it was only a year open when we visited that hotel. It was opened beginning of 2018. It takes approximately 30 minutes by car to reach the hotel from the airport.
The price we paid per night was below 80 USD and because of my Hilton Honors Gold status we received complimentary breakfast and an upgrade into a room having sea view.
The king bed room of the Hilton Garden Inn Santa Marta made immediately a fresh and modern impression. Also because of the smell you could tell that the interior is new. The room is equipped with a king bed, a lounge chair, a work desk and a TV.
The bathroom was spacious and well designed in a wooden wall. Only one negative point, during the shower it got really slippery.
The restaurant offers a great breakfast in the morning with a big variety of fresh fruits, pastries, cereals and warm dishes. A live cooking chef prepares fresh egg dishes.
During the day you can have lunch and dinner as well here. The menu offers a good selection regional and international dishes. Between the reception and restaurant you will find the bar which opens in the evening.
On top of the building you find the gym and a rooftop bar and pool. Here you can have a phonomal view during the day and enjoy the sunset in the evening.
The lobby area offers plenty options to sit and relax. everything really well designed. Here you can also find a small market place for snacks and beverages.
