Just returned from a two week stay , the hotel is clean, has beautiful gardens and is right on the beach. The staff from the reception, the bar and restaurant to the house keepers were all excellent and always very friendly. Candolim is a fantastic resort with so much to see and do and the Santana is the perfect hotel... More

Grounds are lovely... More

A very good facility , took Room no:608 which had road view on the back side as well as pool view on the front side. Went by the reviews on this site and were not disappointed. Had a live western musical performance during our stay. A much less talked about aspect in the all the reviews is the food taste... More

We checked into santana during a peak summer time. The resort is very nicely designed. the resort and rooms are very calm and quiet and it is on the dando beach itself. The beach is calm and quiet and feels very much private. The pools are a tad too small and so is the parking. WiFi is a paid service... More

Excellent resort with fabulous staff, good rooms and the beach around the corner. A true value for money. I was there with family for 3 nights. It made my experience a memorable one. Staff is also very generous and helpful.

Visited this place for the second time, rooms and property is extremely clean and beautiful. Very close proximity to Candolim beach. Negative points for the in house massage therapy (both the therapists just don't know what they're doing!) and In room dining food. All else is great!

I visited Santana for 2 nights. I really liked the property, rooms were big of the size of small apartment. This resort located on the beach. Moreover at 4k per night this property is true value for money. I would definitely recommend this resort to fellow travellers I bet u would not be disappointed.
