This place has no charm except the location. Bungalows are ok but no design, the furniture does not age from last century but from last last century, same as the upper so called "restaurant" where the food is so so. As I said the only positive things here are the bay and the

The purpose of our trip to Sao Tome was scuba diving and as Club Santana has the Atlantic Diving Centre within the resort, it was a big influencer for us choosing it as our holiday accommodation. We booked directly, via e-mail, and the team were helpful and responsive

Dear Jennifer Thomson, It means so much to us when we encounter such a review, many thanks for sharing your experience at Club Santana and Atlantic Diving Center!!! We are really pleased that so many factors and situations were up to your expectations and above. Our aim is to be a fully eco-friendly resort, we are not at an European level yet, but we are getting there step by step, as you well mentioned, the local challenges that we still have. Nevertheless, all your suggestions are very valid and much appreciated. We are also motivating and encouraging our staff to learn and practise other foreign languages besides the local language - Portuguese. Just a quick clarification, the diving center belongs to the same company, two in one... ;) A big thank you in the name of the entire staff!!! We are looking forward to welcoming you in a near future!!! Kind regards, João Carvalho

I spent a fantastic week in the Santana with my family. The hotel is located on a cliff, which provides wind and no mosquitos, while having a perfect, even if narrow, beach. Great snorkelling and relaxed scuba diving in the very friendly diving center on the beach.it doesn't

Where to start? The Club Santana is very well managed, and most things were just simply perfect: 1. Airport pick-up 2. Check-in 3. Location 4. Room 5. Hotel grounds and gardens 6. Restaurant and food. The hotel is located at a nice beach, with rooms build on a small hill above

Thank you very much for your excellent score and review. Being a small independent resort with only 31 bungalows, we do not have the structure of larger hotel chain and we are always delighted when our guest fully enjoyed our premises, meaning that all our daily efforts to turn your stay in a memorable experience succeeded. Indeed the entire team hardly work to overcome each guest expectation and we are really glad and thankful to read how much you noticed that. We hope to welcome you back very very soon for another relaxing stay in our small paradise!...

Tout est toujours possible. Pouvez-vous détailler votre question? Vous voyagez sur quelle compagnie aerienne? Les vols d'Europe arrivent en soirée et il y a peu d'intérêt à prendre un guide à ce moment là. Il vaudrait mieux le prendre le lendemain à la première heure. Le transfert aéroport/Club Santana est compris dans nos tarifs... Vous remerciant et dans l'attente de vous accueillir au Club Santana, un des derniers paradis sur terre...

Bonjour, Merci pour votre message. Notre resort est situé sur une plage ou vivent et pechent une quantité non négligeable de pêcheurs. Ils sont equipés de petites pirogues avec ou sans voile et certains clients se levent tres tot pour aller pecher avec eux. Leurs tarifs varient en fonction des desideratas et de la capacite de negociation des clients. Certains pêcheurs nous vendent regulierement le fruit de leur peches qui va de l'espadon au petit rouget en passant par la bonite et le Mai Mai. Pour plus de renseignements je vous conseille de contacter notre centre de plongee atlanticdivingcenter que vous trouverez facilement sur un moteur de recherche et qui prete quelques cannes a pêches et dont certains personnels sont des pecheurs du village. En esperant vous accueillir tres prochainement Bien a vous

"villa 6 has the best view but it is reserved for some local guests"
"We selected a garden view but still had a nice ocean view as well. The Bungalows are just delightful."
"Ask for rooms closest to beach and for a double/queen bed as you may get 2 singles"
"If you need to have wifi in the room chose one near the reception."
"I would avoid the wooden hut , they have a (slight) better view but bathrooms are a bit moldy which could be frustrating for the price you pay"
$223 - $342 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
