“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here a couple of times this year and enjoyed it tremendously. Excellent value for money, kids friendly rates, clean rooms, great quiet location and much more. One can clearly see the dedication the owners have in keeping this place going without compromising on their standards or increasing their rates. As a result this resort is well booked so you often have to adjust your schedule to get a booking but we don't mind, it's worth it. Also is clear the training they do for their staff who are always pleasant and helpful (including fixing a flat tire for me). The only thing to look out for and be careful is the small parking and the notorious Goa taxi drivers outside the hotel. Also I saw absolutely no distinction between treatment of Indian and non Indian guests. Food at Olegario and Calamari(when open) is yum.

We stayed at the Santana in the last week of September and were happy to get a good price and also have the staff s attention. It was def worth the price v paid. In a nutshell

Pros
1 best location in candolim. the beach starts at the rear boundary wall
2 very nice swimming pool
3 worth the price (rs2300)paid in sept
4 got a parking of its own
5 polite and courteous staff
6 clean and well kept property

Shortcomings
1 no free wi fi anywhere in the hotel
2 a little miserly in providing any extra requests. Eg charges for a clothes iron also
3 had a little problem while doing our reservations as it doesn't take bookings directly. You need to get it done by partner tie up agents
4 did not try the restaurant as it had not a very nice ambiance

All in all a good hotel which i would recommend provided the price is good.

Like all others, I booked this resort based on the reviews at tripadvisor and I am not disappointed at all! The beach is stones throw away from the resort and in fact walking through the walk path through the resort, we can reach the beach avoiding the slightly desolate road on which this resort is located. The breakfast spread is quite elaborate and tasty too! For someone who wishes to use the pool would find it a tad tiny! Overall a very good resort and would definitely recommend it for someone who is going to north goa on a budget holiday!

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor would offer a very good view!

Santana Bay candolim is superbly located.Adjecent to the beach.We were there between 14th-17th sept 2013 and the beach was empty and great to move around.The hotel is well mentained and surrounded with a lot of greenery.The off season prices were very reasonable. I recommend this to families. As the deluxe rooms have a kitchen which could be helpful to families with small kids.

Room Tip: rooms 710, 712 these are deluxe rooms facing the pool with a bar. just go for it.

Greetings friends,
Well it was my first trip to Goa in September 2013. I just landed yesterday from Goa and now writing my review about the resort. It was an excellent place to stay. I like the on a scale of 10 I would give 9.5 for Room Services, 9.5 for food and hospitality, 9.5 for privacy, 9.00 for Room, 10 for cleanliness and maintenance, they are good in managing the thing, plus there is no typical crowd there that is the best part. I am specially writing this for one person named Krish in the Restaurant. All the other staff was also very co-operative but this man Krish is a local person and went out of the way to get the typical goan food for me. I really appreciate that kind of hospitality. over all rating i would give Excellent and I would prefer to stay back again in the said resort.

If you travel with kids and children 100% safe, and pools are so nice that they are very good for children and very safe

Room Tip: prefer the pool view rooms have a good view of the pool with balcony falling inside the resort towar...

We first visited Santana in 2008 and have been going there every year since then!! It is truly home away from for us. We have been there as a couple, then with our 1 year old (who was pampered truly by the entire staff) and also with friends and parents..The rooms are cozy and clean. The Housekeeping does a fantastic job. The staff is very friendly and always willing to go the extra mile. It is located right at the beach where the resort owners also have a shack too!! The shack serves great food, yummy cocktails. You can reserve your deck chairs too.. The main street is a delight for shoppers, especially looking for jewellery. The place offers a complete HOLIDAY for everyone from all age groups..
