“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

A hidden Paradise in the busy Candolim area with excellent service and cheaper rate than some of the more well known ones.
Would love to go back and stay in the Lovely Santana as soon as possible

Been trying to book this resort for New Year Eve since 2011 but not yet succeeded

Santana is one of my favourite hotels in goa. It has everything going for it. Location is perfect - beach side, candolim is peaceful and away from the crazy tourist areas, many great restaurants around. Added to this is their own restaurant Calamari - which is a beach shack and has amazing seafood and goan food. The rooms are very good, nice clean bathrooms and nice pool as well.

We stayed there for 5 days from June 1st to 6th and it was a pleasant experience. The staff is very courteous and prompt in answering room service calls. The location is fantastic, there's a back gate which takes you directly on to the beach and since its not as crowded as Baga or Calangute, its quite a nice place to sit and relax. All in all a very well maintained, value for money place.

We stayed in March 2014. It was our second stay at Santana and have booked to go back it is so good. The rooms are large and airy and cleaned with fresh towels every day. The room boys are fantastic, very efficient and creative with towels - we had a new design every day! All the staff are very polite and friendly. Breakfasts are the best in Goa. The restaurant is also very good.

This is undoubtedly the best resort available in that area for its prce range. The resort is right on the main road of candolim. The rooms are designed like mini apartment like villas which looks really nice.

I got the room for almost 700/- INR per night including breakfast for 3 persons but that was during Oct 2011 via an offer on cleartrip. and I would say it was a steal at that price. It was not just a single room. It was actually a 1 BHK with TV, SOFA in the hall, a Kitchen having a mini refrigerator stuffed already with some of the beverages and alcohol (Charegeable :P). The bedroom had a nice king size bed with comfortable mattress, AC working alright which is quite essential considering the heat and humidity of Goa.

There is a nice, small swimming pool in the resort which for your leisure and also has a mini bar attached to it so that you can have some chilled beer while in the water. Awesome feeling.
There is another minibar on the land and a swimming pool near the dining area but i think that pool is just for the show and you ar not supposed to swim there.

Coming to the food, it was quite good and surprisingly reasonabley priced. The morning breakfast buffet is simple but good with toasts, butter, Jam, varieties of egg based preperation, poori or idly, fruit juices, tea and coffee. So basically it caters to everyone.

some of the nights, while having the dinner you can also enjoy some live music which they arrange from time to time.

Also its pretty near to the beach, just a minute walk I would say. Would have loved if it would have been placed nearer to the beach than this and getting the seaview from the room but that's the only minore complaint.

Anyways if you want to enjoy the seaview while having dinner or lunch you can just go on the beach and you will find the "Calamari Bath & Binge" restaurant which is quite highly rated and has really good food options and live music as well.

So to conclude, I would say you won't regret your stay in this resort. The staff is friendly and hospitable, nice big and clean rooms, good food options, close to both the main road and the beach and biggest factor of them all, the tariff is best for its class.

We reached the place on an weekend, the welcoming from the staff was good by providing the seasonal fruit drink to refresh yourself, which was delicious.
The staff was very friendly and ready to assist. The quality of food was great.
Since the resort is near the beach it was convenient to visit whenever you feel like to get the breeze of Sea. The resort is best place to relax yourself as it well maintained with Good fixtures and gardening.

Room Tip: Try to take room facing poolside or beach side as it gives a pleasant feel.
