Breathtaking front ocean view condo-hotel. Sta. Marta, Colombia. Home away from home. Spacious accommodation: serenity designed. Outstanding pool feature, 5 designs actually, choose your comfort poolside. Excellent apt location from the other apts, not too high, not too low.
We bought this place in Sta. Marta by accident on a vacation in a nearby hotel. My husband is a native Colombian and I am from Asia. We have 3 kids. We have stayed at our apt and we have kept coming back regularly ever since. It truly is a home away from home. Slow paced, rejuvenating. We return home to Florida refreshed. We look forward to this place as our retirement place because the people are friendly, the atmosphere is relaxing and slow paced. We love this piece of place that we call second home and would like to share the experience to our future guest.

When here in this place, time slows down. Anything occupying your to do list mind gets erased. Suddenly, all the worries goes away and you just take a deep breathe and live the moment. That's vacation thinking.
In our stay, we have toured natural wonders one have never experienced anywhere (and we have traveled extensively as a family to U.S., Europe, Africa and Asia). Sta. Marta has places to visit very unique to its culture. In Rodadero, 20 mins drive away, guests can join in the beach side crowd with Cumbia music. An hour and a half drive away, a private river will take guests in a hiking expeirence & be taken away in a rubber tube down the river. So many places to tour around the area. Not to mention the culinary: whether requested to be prepared by a local cook, or visit our favorite restaurant that serves fresh catch of the day from the ocean. Then at night, relax home in a spacious environment, marvel at the ocean front view from the apartment. What an experience!
Sierra Laguna was wonderful!! We were delighted by the condo, which we found very well appointed. We stayed in a similar-style of condo in Cartagena for the first week of our vacation, and it did not have blankets on the beds, an iron, any cleaning supplies, and when we asked about additional toilet paper and garbage bags, we were told we needed to supply those ourselves. So, it was a real treat to meet Betty on arrival and have her walk us through all of the comforts of your condo! We particularly enjoyed the fact that the condo was spotless, had cleaning supplies, blankets, plenty of towels - including beach towels, games, and movies.
Dont' hesitate to rent this place if you are planning to travel to santa marta area. Let me first say that we are fairly picky and hard to please as we have traveled to many places including hawaii, caribbean, europe, mexico where a lot of our stays were at fairly upscale places like the ritz, etc. At this rental, you will get that feel of very nice upscale resort. Pictures that are posted here really don't really reflect how nice it really is. Bathrooms not picutred here are very modern and nice. Look at latinretreats.com for better pictures of this resort under sierra laguna. One thing i would recommend highly about this rental would be to take advantage of housekeeper/cook Osiris. She is awsome! She cooks, cleans, even does laundry for very small fee so you can relax. Very tasty meals! A lot better then the restaurant options. Also owner Margot is flexible/dependable. Thank you! We actually went back for our 2nd visit this year.
The overall experience was great. We enjoyed it very much with our kids and used all the facilities we had, especially the swimming pools and spa. The only thing unexpected was the wind, specially in the afternoons . People there told us it was strange because the windy season is in December.
People at the restaurant deserve a special mention since they were extremely helpful and willing to help you with anything you need.
This appartment is beautiful with full ammenities. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and extremely modern. The pictures don't do the facility and condo justice.
I have stayed in many vacation rentals but I have to say that this condo is one of the best places that I have ever seen. It is the place to stay when you want luxury and relaxation. A day trip to the national park is easy from here or you can rest by one of the many pools. The grounds are kept up immaculately, the pools are clean and everything is new. The sand is soft and I enjoyed a nice swim at the beach. I will be back for another relaxing experience. Thanks Margot for letting us enjoy your place.
