We had a very enjoyable holiday at the Santa Lucia Hotel in May despite the weather not being as good as we would have hoped. We have stayed at this hotel twice previously, but not for several years, so we did know what to expect. At the Santa Lucia you now have a choice of ‘all inclusive’ or ‘half board’. We chose to go half board which suited our requirements perfectly.
The hotel is ideally situated, jutting out to sea right on the beach and adjacent to the lovely long and level promenade. It has been designed in such a way that all rooms, irrespective of which side of the hotel you are on, have a lovely sea view. We do, however, prefer to ask for a room on a high floor overlooking the swimming pool, as this side of the hotel does tend to get a greater percentage of the day’s sunshine. The rooms are very comfortable and are cleaned to a high standard. A fridge is available in the room for a small additional charge if required.
The restaurant is buffet service at all times and serves a good selection of well prepared and tasty food which should accommodate all tastes. It is a very well organised restaurant run by (mostly) friendly staff.
The late evening entertainment at the Santa Lucia, which is provided by professional visiting entertainers, was generally very good. The early evening entertainment, provided by the ‘in house’ entertainment team, was regrettably not too good. The ‘in house’ entertainment team consisted of a young man and a young woman who only seemed able to put on quizzes. They were friendly enough, but unfortunately lacked the experience to provide good quality early evening entertainment that this hotel was renowned for in previous years.
We found the Santa Lucia to be a very friendly hotel. The reception staff were very helpful, efficient and sociable as was almost all of the other staff. We would like to say a big thank you to all staff at Santa Lucia and would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone (subject to noting the little constructive criticism in this review regarding the entertainment team). We will definitely be returning to the Santa Lucia again in the future.
