We had a lovely stay. Stayed for 10 nights. Location good walking distance to shops, restaurants etc. Rooms were clean. Bathroom had a bit of mould on the shower. Our fridge kept freezing everything. Self contained units. I feel the price we paid was okay but should have included change of towels and include price for rented pool towels. Good... More

Rooms not really clean and furniture are old. Water leaking somewhere in our room and some area of the carpet was soaking wet. Everything is money for this hotel, very expensive wifi, toilet paper roll, detergent etc. Room sound proof is not good, can hear clearly the car on the main street during midnight.Overall, is not really a good stay...

I really enjoyed the stay, but there were a few things which could have made it even better. Just little things like the heavy doors, which were quite loud when closed - you could hear the neighbours a mile off!! Some extra blankets would have been nice - I opted not to get heating (at $15 per night extra, it... More

Stayed here for 4 nights while visiting Gold Coast for the theme parks and beach. Upon arriving, we noticed that the grounds appeared clean and well kept. The check-in staff was also very friendly and helpful. When we got to our room we were a little less impressed. Wifi was available but for an outrageous fee- $40 for three days.... More

Santana Resort is a compact holiday homes resort, just a few minutes away from the heart of Surfers' Paradise. Public transport is easily accessible --with bus stops in either direction along the Gold Coast highway within about 5-6 minutes walk each. The beach is a 6-8 minute walk as well. So, location-wise, a pretty good place. Our one-bedroom apartment was... More
