“Excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

If you want to be close to the beach, this is your hotel.
The room was quite big, but basic. The bed was a bit small and very hard.
The food is good and the terrace is one of the best in Sitges.

We have stayed at La Santa Maria twice before, in 2005 and 2003. We love Sitges and were pleased to discover it hadn't changed much in the six years since our last visit. Hotel is great; we again had a room with a sea view on the first floor (last time we had a top floor room with superb views of the beach and Sitges' lovely old church) - room has everything you'd need: TV, fridge, air-con, clean functional bathroom and comfortable beds. The restaurant is excellent and always busy; popular with locals, always a good sign! We ate there every night; paella maybe a little too salty though. Beach is a minute's walk away and the weather was excellent; hardly a cloud in the week we were there! A few gripes...the building is very old and could do with a touch-up; some repointing etc. also, curtains in room were dirty and half hanging off their rails. Avoid mid to late august: it is festival week and we discovered (as they were assembling the stage outside our hotel room) that there would be music until 4 am every night for about 3 or 4 nights of our stay...we had a few sleepless nights but an excellent atmosphere nonetheless.

We visit Sitges almost every year, but this time my husband was keen to try a hotel on the beach front.

We paid a little extra and opted for a sea-view room. The room was lovely. It was very big, and we had a lovely view of the Med, although sadly no balcony. The TV was flat-screen and had BBC One - a rare treat for a hotel in Sitges.

The bathroom was also very large, with two sinks, bidet and bath/shower. The towels was a decent size and the toiletries was quite nice too.

Breakfast was served in the restaurant, which meant we could sit on the front to eat it. Although officially finishing at 11am, there was no rush to leave, and we sat there until about midday a couple of times.

We will definitely be back to stay at this hotel again!

La Santa Maria Hotel is located directed on the beach in beautiful Sitges. I have stayed here over 10 times. The location could not be better, and they propbably have the most successful restaurant in Sitges. The setting is spectacular. The staff are very nice and accommodating. And it is a bargain.

Now this is no five-star hotel. But it is very nice. And for the price, and location, it is the best deal in Sitges.

We book this place in March because we love Sitges and been there for the 3rd year in a row we wanted to continue staying in a beach-front hotel. In the past we stayed at The Calipolis and La Niña without problems as they are hotels with a capital H. Sta Maria unfortunately is a missed business opportunity because the location is superb. First, we got a room in the back of the hotel with no working AC. The next day they changed us to next door La Pinta (guess owned by the same people) which was kind of closed (no lobby reception, personnel or restaurant) and the lobby door kept locking up so you had to go back to anyone in the reception of Sta Maria so they open the door. We only wish that some rich business person buyout these places and reopen them like the hotels they should be.

We stayed here for a quilt festival and it was very convenient, great breakfast, friendly and helpful staff and owners, clean, and across the street from a beautiful beach. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The city is beautiful too and conveniently close by train to Barcelona.

We happened upon Sitges and stayed for four nights, of which the last two nights were at the Santa Maria Hotel. Our only wish is that we had stayed there for all four nights. Our room was fabulous, overlooking the gorgeous beach and ocean. Large very clean room with really large bathroom and the most comfy kingsize bed.
Nice having a restaurant on site and having breakfast included. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Secured parking was right behind the hotel and reasonably priced per night compared to other hotels in the area.
Although the hotel does have a great restaurant with a huge menu, we would highly recommend that you also try the Elxalet Restaurant. They have a set dinner menu, at a reasonable price, and the food was delicious. The restaurant is in a beautiful courtyard around the hotel pool. Candles and wine made it a special evening.
We took the train into Barcelona one day, which was fast, cheap, relaxing and beat fighting traffic in the car. The train station is a short walk from the hotel.
Sitges is a beautiful beach town. Wonderful shops, lots of restaurants and friendly people. We would highly recommend you stay at the Santa Maria Hotel when you go to Sitges. We hope to return in the future.
