Dear Guest I think your comment was very rude and inappropriate! Just because YOU didnt like the rooms and hotel, does not give you the right to be so rude about the guests who do love it and return year after year! Who are you to judge whether they are overweight or not and criticize what they wear.... are you... More

First of all the USP of this resort is that it's practically on beach.one of The gate opens at the beach. So amazing property for those whose prime aim is to laze on sand. They have installed a shower on the gate for convenience as well. Now our check in was smooth and prompt. Within minutes Alistair (the guy at... More

Our room was furnished very basically and could have done with updating. The rear windows were covered with heavy blinds and when you raised them to get some light into the room... More

The Santana Resort has direct access to the beach via its extremely well maintained garden and if you enjoy spending your days lying about toasting yourself then you will not be disappointed with this hotel as there is little else to do in this resort or surrounding area. Breakfast which was included in the price we paid was a hit... More

There are beach chairs for the resort's guests at the beach. Besides that within the premises of the resort there are different areas where you... More
