Santana Beach Resort
Ranked #3 of 69 Hotels in Candolim
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 29, 2012

only just learning to use a computer so this review is late but i felt i had to write.Me and the mrs stayed at santana beach resort for two weeks nov-dec 2011,we could not wish for anything more,the room was a nice size and comfortable,all the staff were very polite and always friendly. Due to the wife suffering from prickly heat we spend all our time at the pool area which was great,the water was clean and made for a very welcome dip,the waterfall in the middle was especially nice and the food at sunken bar was good.We think the best thing about this hotel is the location,set just off the beach and a short stroll from the centre of candolim. Had a fantastic holiday and cannot wait to go back but unfortunatly will not be until next year but definitly will be the SANTANA BEACH RESORT and nowhere else. To all the team at the SANTANA, thank you very much-see you next year.

We stayed for two nights, room was too nice and resort is clean and tidy and service is good. Suite room is too big for travellers like us; however we feel the food in the restaurant needs to be improved a lot, that is the only concern and we personally feel like travellers from south India, will miss the taste of food here… even north Indian dishes also not up to the mark...

Hope resort will address this and add up more choice in the menu.

We went to Goa last year in Sep end (2011). We intentionally chose an off season as none of us like that much crowd that Goa gets in Dec/Jan. The hotel was fabulous defintely a 3 star infact i'll rate it as 3.5! We were given welcome drink on arrival and the breakfast was also good! We got it very cheap during that season.. around INR 1450 for one night.
The location is good as well. 2 kms away from the madness at Calangute at a very clean place. It's actually between Fort Agoda and Calangute bech. It's a good base to explore the most famous beaches of Goa. Just cross the road and you've a small general store and a decent restaurant (we had lunch and dinner there and it was good too). The items in the small fridge provided were very costly (as the case with every hotel I think). The bedding was clean and very soft.
Just one small complaint though since our flight got delayed so we asked for a late check out (bu one hour) but it was courteously turned down (which I thought would not happen as there were very less people at that time in the hotel) Anyways, we kept our luggage safely there and roamed nearby.
I'll definitely stay here again whenever I'll go Goa.

Room Tip: "Nice filling tasty breakfast" "Great location!"

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to review us - we value you feedback as it allows us to improve our service in future.

I am glad your enjoyed your stay with us, its guests like yourselves who motivate us to work harder and try and improve our service.

I am surprised you werent allowed to have a late checkout on the day of your departure as we normally do allow guests to stay on as long as rooms are available and we are not fully booked. I will try and look into the matter even though it was quite a long time ago and I am sure whether I will be able to trace back.

Many thanks and I look forward to seeing you back in Santana soon

We booked hotel for 2 days and it was really worth...the resort is located very near to beach. The rooms were clean. The continental Breakfast is also good. The pool is also very nice and clean. I asked for extension for 2 hours and the reception people agreed easily as it was raining outside.

Room Tip: Book rooms near to pool
