It's a really good choice to stay! It's in the center of the town which is very important. The rooms are always well cleaned. The people are very friendly. The service was excellent. Also the hotel offers great variety of food and quality. I would like to stay there again! :)

Elegant lobby, climatic patio with a great pink-flowered tree, and petite swimming pool. Wi-Fi works like a dream!! So does the restaurant staff: neat and quick job. The whole is crowned with a great atmosphere at the bar. Mainly, thanks to the wonderful bartenders: Flavio (a.k.a. darling) and Andreas (he master of entertainment) who won’t get tired of pouring you... More

Best vacation ever!!! The rooms are ok, they dont give you the shampoos & shower gels though. Food is pretty good, really not that bad & there's always what to eat. A lot of people, a little minus - not enough tables in breakfast & dinner, and you cant really sit at the bar while eating. But the bar staff... More

The Santa marina hotel is very well situated for the Ammos beach, the town, the lake and plenty of eateries and bars. The breakfasts r super and the evening meals are varied and cater for all tastes. Friendly waiting staff and bell boys. Worth considering for a breakaway.... Not too expensive and good location.

The hotel is not bad, the rooms are big enough, cleaned every day, the only minus is that you need the key to have electricity, so if someone decide to stay in the room and you to go out at night, you have to wake up your friend/family as you have no key. The hotel is set really close to... More
