The hotel is 2 minutes drive away from the airport and next to a busy road but you don't really notice either. They only have 16 rooms (all with balconies) and it is quiet and tranquil. It feels like it has come from a more sedate time in the past. The pool areas are quiet and the pool filled by the sea is lovely to swim in. Lush well maintained gardens too. All of the rooms overlook the sea but I would suggest a room on the first floor because the views are obviously better than on the ground. The staff are all helpful and friendly and will sort cars out for you, find bus times etc. Santa Cruz has some cheap cafes/bars and it is a pleasant 15 minute walk away along the side of the sea. The advantage of the road being nearby is that you can get straight on to the main road linking you with the rest of the island. The disadvantage of the location is that you are some way off what most people see at the main sites. However I was happy to relax around the pool. Two very minor moans are that it would be good to have more regular service around the pool rather than having to go looking for someone to get you a drink and it would be good to have a snack menu e.g. sandwiches.
