OK, those of you who are looking for a 5 start accomodation for a 3 star price, may look somewhere else... here you will not find luxury and the hotel is not perfect, but it is a great place to spend some time, relax, walk to the beach or promenade, enjoy their morning and evening programs all for a very reasonable price.
My girlfriend and I just got back from a 10 day stay there and everyone in the staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed talking with our housecleaning lady (Rosi) who is a very nice lady and also with the restaurant staff who are always around making sure you are well served and they do make some very good recomendations.
We had breakfast and dinner included in our package, and though sometimes the restaurant buffet was packed with people, we never had any problem with it or did we miss out on anything because they might have runout of it.. in fact quite the contrary, the staff was always telling us what each of the dishes were and if we wanted more. In the morning juice, coffee, milk, milk chocolate and water are included. However, for dinner no drinks are included in the buffet which I did find a little off since they will even make you pay for watter (bottled). The "good" thing is that is you do purchase a wine bottle and you do not finish it that evening during dinner, they will mark it with your room number and they will have it waiting for you for the next dinner. We had only one glass of wine each and the bottle would last us for 3 dinners (about 9 euros the bottle). So it wasn't really that bad.
The hotel hast 3 pools, the indor pool was open, but I never saw anyone in there, it looks nice, but the place is a bit dark. The kiddie pool is outside and next to some balconies that are located on the first floor (We were very happy that our room was located on the 5th floor, I would not like to have the sound of kids playing around and screaming next to my bedroom window) and the main pool which is pretty big and deep in some areas, this pool is usually quite full of mostly people who are tanning and just goiing in for a quick jump, we quite enjoyed it. Also their service life guard Juan Carlos is a great and guy whi we also stroke some small friendship while on our time there.
Santa Susanna itself is a nice little town with not too much to see, the beaches are OK since they are not really made of fine sand and the rocks and gravel can hurt your feel after a while. The water is very clean and clear, however it get deep very fast. About 2 meters off the shore a full grown person can already be in deep water. If you travel by car (as we did) there are some amazing beaches nearby that are not full with tourists and are more of a local scene kind of place. These places are Cala Bona and Santa Cristina (google them you won't regret it) they are about 20 min away driving but the beaches there are great.. you have a good 30 mts. in the water before it starts to get deep (specialy at Sta. Cristina)
the hotel does offer complimentary parking (actually I think is more of a town complementary parking) at the back of the hotel in a big parkinglot... be ready for your car to be completly coverd in dust by the next day.
All in all we had a great time, the room's A/C unit worked perfectly. The hotel is situated in the heart of the town't promenade. Would I go back? Trick question, since I think the place (sta. Susanna) is not the best beach I've been too and I would like to visit some other places, however if I ever do go back I would def. make my reservations in this hotel again.
