This is a great resort for the budget conscious. When planning our trip to Goa, we wanted to have our cake and eat it too. The criteria – must be right on the beach, have a well stocked bar, provide good breakfast and most of all be secure and safe.
Pros - I was quite impressed by the hotel security – there were security guards manning all the entrances to the resort 24X7. The resort is right on the beach and provides free overnight car parking with a security guard. The bar was stocked moderately well. The free buffet style breakfast was just OK . Though they made sincere attempts to keep all the dishes covered to protect against house flies, it was a losing battle.

Now the cons – We were given a suite room above a room being renovated. Luckily we were out all day and did not have to deal with the noise. Their suite rooms (families of 4 or more be forewarned) are the first row of rooms right on the main road on one side and the loud and noisy swimming pool on the other. They do not provide umbrellas to guests, you have to actually buy them ! After being drenched in the rain a few times (walking from the car park near the beach to our room near the main road – it is a 5 minute walk), I had learnt my lesson and we bought one. Room service can take their own sweet time so make sure you call them twice so they don’t delay. If you prefer peace and quiet – do not take a room facing the pool. All day long Bollywood songs blare out accompanied by the yelling and screaming in the pool by the resort guests. Wi-Fi is not free. One of the bed-sheets they had laid had holes in them so we had to request them to replace it.

Our original plan was to stay for 6 nights. However, after 4 nights we had had enough of the place and wanted to move to the Marriott Resort & Spa in Miramar to spend the rest of our vacation being pampered. As expected, (since we had already paid for our rooms in advance), we could not get a penny back in refund for the two days. In retrospect, moving to a 5 star resort was worth this loss! Lesson learnt is – be careful on committing to stay at this resort for your entire stay as you may discover some gems worth staying at while in Goa.

The best thing about this resort is its location. Almost on the beach and near to the Aguada fort, this resort has a beautiful layout. The breakfast offered was value for money.

The only thing on which I would suggest the improvement is the room layout and quality of interiors. CRT TV should be removed, and the overall room decor should follow a theme.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near to the restaurant or facing the swimming pool.

The best thing about the Santana resort is the location. It is located close to the beach, with good restaurants nearby. The in-house food was also good. I though the rooms and resort exterior was nice for the amount of money we spent. Overall, good budget option.

Amazing Amazing.......
We have Stayed there in Santana for almost 4 nights experience of staying there is fantastic.
just near to a DANDO beach.. you can hear a noise of water in late night and early morning...
as well as a staff is very co-operative. and we were spending almost 2 hours every mornig in swimming pool.. and rooms are neat and clean every morning and space in a room is very much.
I have gone with my 3 other friends. we all are in couples. and every night we are meeting in my room and doing gossips playing some games and having lots of fun. atmosphere here is very peaceful and enjoyable...
we enjoyed Breakfast like a Heavy meal.... Daily 3 waiters needed to collect plates and cups we used....... lol....
the most notice thing is a rates we paid.... very economical budget.....

Great great ......
