The hotel location and the service is very good. They have a pretty and big garden where we could enjoy our meal. The food is ok nothing special, we only ate breakfast at the hotel. We preferred to eat outside the hotel and the location is perfect to find good restaurant around. The rooms are very clean but a bit... More

Some of the rooms at this hotel are terrible, old and nonfunctional. The beach front building is old. One night the airconditioning broke, and I it was 100 degrees. This happens all the time in that building. The other buildings are newer and acceptable as a mid range quality hotel, the ones by the pool. Reserving a room means absolutely... More

We stayed here for five days and it is a perfect location for families and/or couples. The hotel is centrally located and on the beach (there is a hotel across the street as well and a newer wing just added). The service is outstanding and our package included a free breakfast which was also very good. The beach is beautiful... More

We have just got back from a 11 day stay at Santa Marina and had a really lovely time. I was a bit unsure after reading some of the reviews but we had a really nice experience! My review is fairly detailed as I feel some of the previous comments were either little unfair or have sinced been changed. The... More

We had booked a family size room for our stay at this hotel. At the check-in they told us we got a 'bit smaller' family room but could change next day to a bigger room. The room was just big enough to fit 2 single beds, we were a family of 4 so it was very unpleasant. They upgraded us... More

I was there for a one week holiday with my wife and two kids, end of June 2015. What we appreciate most at the hotel was the position, practically on the beach; we love the sand, the sun and the sea and the place is perfect for this. The main restaurant is between the beach and the hotel so is... More
