Property Description

The Cantamar Beach Hostel is right on Playa Salguero in the Rodadero neighborhood of Santa Marta. We are closer to the airport, on the edge of town, with a unique beachfront location making it easy access to tours and activities, the bus terminal, and the historic center. It is the perfect spot when you are coming or going or if you are coming from the coast or the sierra and need to get things done in the city but don't want to stay in the heat/noise.

​The property is well equipped, being a former hotel, and we offer a wide variety of activities and rentals onsite, as well as tour bookings for adventures into the Sierra Nevada or Tayrona Park.

The Cantamar offers a variety of dorm and private room options. Our dorm rooms never have any 'bunk' beds and no more than 4/5 people per room. Every room comes with air conditioning and ensuite bathroom. We have a nice pool and spectacular views of the sunset too.

Pretty expensive for what you get. The bathrooms are missing toilet seats and soap. The vibe is really odd- the restaurant area is like one big empty conference room and my private room actually had 4 single beds. It’s nice to be right on the beach and to lay in the hammocks.

We loved our relaxing 3 nights at the cantamar (had a private room). We felt that the front desk staff were extremely nice and responsive. Every time we wanted a cab, the receptionist would call and one would be there in just a few minutes. The facility feels very comfortable and is a nice oasis. The food was great as well. We didn’t end up hanging out in the area near the hostel, we would mostly go to Santa Marta, the hostels location isn’t near a lot of things.

My stay here was good for the most part. A little over priced for what it is. The food was all vegan and the breakfast is decent but a little pricey foe eggs. Tiffany the entertainment coordinator and yulian were the perfect host since day 1. She took me out to santa Marta town and showed me the ropes as well as helped me understand what to see etc. She was truly amazing and I would have had a very different trip without her. Location is peaceful and the sunset is beautiful .
