Great hotel and location. All inclusive was great. Food good. Pool small. Entertainment fun. Great for families.... I try not to go back to the same place twice but would make an exception for the Hotel Santa Monica.

We are currently staying at the Medplaya Santa Monica and are due to leave on Wednesday. Let's start with the good stuff: the rooms are lovely and clean and they get cleaned every day, with new towels being provided every day.

Just came back from 8 days family reunion at Santa Monica. Without getting too verbose – I agree with all positive reviews: the place is clean, food is plenty and service is great.
