“Good quality hotel in a dreamy location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We loved the wonderful location that this hotel enjoys. It is set in spacious grounds with access to the most beautiful beach. We had a sea front view room with balcony. It was spacious and well furnished in a traditional style. It offered comfortable bedding and very good amenities as one would expect .
The dinner at the restaurant was delicious and staff professional and efficient.
The fitness room was excellent with good quality new equipment. This is a quality traditional hotel in a privileged setting. Staff was polite and efficient but without the usual warmth and friendliness we have experienced in other hotels.

Room Tip: Make sure you book a sea room view. Well worth the extra as the experience is in enjoying the beauti...

Old School charm, that's what this place is about. It was beautifully done up although had a slightly 80's feel to some of it. That's not a bad thing as it felt likes the way it should have been. The service was good. There are other reviews giving the service a bashing. I thought it was all good, the English speaking was a minor issue if you got past that- they were all really nice and tried hard to please. I think service in a place like this is replicated if you treat the staff with a little respect.
What are my negatives. The cost of the food was considerable and there was no provision or reduction for kids. 55 euro's for a buffet breakfast (which was average) for 2 adults and 2 children, 1 being 1 years old the other 5 was very high. The room service food was not at all good for the price, very different from the main restaurant where the food was very good and could just about justify the prices. I say this owning a restaurant so something I know about.
This did dent the stay somewhat, not to the extent where we came away from it with negative thoughts. The overall stay was lovely, we had an excellent time and would definately come back.

Room Tip: We had the family room, a little more expensive but exceptional views and comfort.

Most of the cyclists first choice as it has the best view of the seven hotels we stopped at. The beach below the hotel is a perfect slice of paradise. The restaurant offers fine dinning at a reasonable cost. The rooms are functional rather than luxuries. The staff are all just a little stale but efficient enough.

The Santa Marta is a very comfortable, quiet hotel in an idyllic location on the doorstep of Lloret De Mar. The location is excellent with fantastic views out over the Med and a lovely beach.
The facilities retain a degree of old fashioned charm but are immaculately clean.

We stayed at amazing Hotel Santa Marta with our two dogs and we loved it!! Thank you for a great experience:-)) Fantastic location right on the beach...we will miss the superb view of the bay. Hotel has a great gym decent restaurant and friendly staff. Rooms are very comfortable and hotel property is kept in immaculate order...would love to come back.

A great little hotel hidden away on the outskirts of Lloret / Blarnes. The hotel is perfect if you want to escape the crowds and simple relax and chill out in great surroundings.
I found the staff to be excellent - always attentive and nothing was too much trouble.
A few pointers:
- Go with sean view rooms - its worth the extra cost. The views are stunning and its great to sit out on the balcony
- The evening meal is a treat but a little pricey. Remember you are in a five star hotel so it is 5 star prices. However I would recommend at least one night dinning here. The food is of a high standard and the service excellent
- The pool / beach area is great. Towels are provided and there was never any issue with beds or space.
- It is a family location - so expect children / babies
- Visit Blarnes (local side). Its about an hours walk over the hill. We did it in flip flops and enjoyed it but we like walking!
- WiFi is free and great signal even by the pool area
- Sort your transfer out carefully. We got the shuttle from barcelona and it was a little traumatic. They dropped us in Lloret which is a cab ride away. Buses cant get down to the hotel as its on the side of a hill on a winding road
We will definetly visit again and thoroughly enjoyed our time here

Room Tip: Go with Sea view - its worth the extra cost

My husband and I celebrated his 30th bday by spending 3 nights at the Hotel Santa Marta.

We could not have asked for 2 more perfectly beautiful beach/ pool days. The beach, Santa Cristina, is amazing. The water is warm, clear, and safe, as it is a nice protected little cove. There are a couple of awesome little restaurants on either direction down the beach. I recommend a bowl of gazpacho and a glass of white wine as a nice light lunch on the beach. You can also rent lounge chairs and umbrellas if necessary.

The pool was also phenomenal with a beautiful view out over the ocean and ample lounge chairs and umbrellas. The hotel serves drinks, snacks and light lunch options down at the bar.

The fitness room was also great. Had everything we needed to get a good workout on vacation.

My only complaint was that for the price, the annex rooms weren't very nice. The beds were uncomfortable and things were kind of funky... but not bad. It is clear that you pay for the amenities and the setting more than for the room. Also, because we did not have a car, we ended up eating almost all of our meals at the hotel. The food at the hotel is good, but a bit pricey and limited. On our last night we took a cab in to Blanes and ate a crazy dinner at the fish market. It was a nice outing.

I think it's wonderful that Hotel Santa Marta is a few kilometers away from all the craziness of town. It's a perfect little getaway and is so awesome and relaxing.
