This is my 2nd visit to Santana & both times it was during rains.
Santana has spread out from the road to almost up to the beach. There are two partners who own this place and they have expanded it over a period of time. The resort is nicely laid down and well maintained. Rooms are adequate, with good mattresses, small pantry area, mini fridge. Toilets are average but clean with supply of basic toileteries but clean towels. Rooms are cleaned every day & they have balcony for upper floor (not sure about lower floors). All rooms are air-conditioned & they offer wi-fi packages.
Breakfast was complementary for us with a decent spread and attentive staff. There was a young lady who was going around and checking with the guests if they needed anything. Reception can help you to book local transport including self driven cars. They have a small dedicated & secured parking for guest vehicles. This area is towards end of the property and closer to beach but can be accessed easliy.
For us the highlight was the swimming pool. The swimming pool (not outside restaurant) has sunken bar so one can enjoy their drinks in swimming pool itself. When we went to the pool it was raining and initially water felt a bit cold and a nice drink combined with dip in the water was soooo relaxing.The barman plays nice music and it just takes you closer to Nirvana :)
The maintenance service is great for the price you pay. I haven't tasted the food from restaurant but there are good choices avaialble outside (even in monsoon) if you have a vehicle.
Being there during rains had added advantage of lesser crowds and cheaper rate. I have been visiting Goa every year and we would look forward to Santana as our favourite holiday spot, specially in monsoon.
