5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

Place is excellent, I would suggest rather than booking something near Baga or Calingute this may suit you if you want a better crowd quality and self enjoying evening. Specially when you are with someone special. Has a good dine in facility at pool side.. If you are lucky, You may enjoy good Live music at the pool side.... Staff takes care of all your needs. I would prefer the same resort if I got a chance to visit Goa again

Room Tip: If Possible ask the Resort to book for you renovated room and room near to beach Direction....Mail t...

Just got home after spending two weeks at the Santana, our first time in Goa. Arrived at the hotel at 7am and couldn't check in until midday, a bit of a wait after a 10hr flight, but we made ourselves comfortable in the garden areas, very nice atmosphere. Upon check in we were very happy with our room and location. The room had been recently renovated nicely. A good start all in all. The bar staff, Purna and Gopi were very helpful, polite and worked very hard keeping us watered and fed around the pool area. The breakfast area is set in the gardens, very pleasant in the morning to sit and enjoy breakfast and the staff also worked very hard to ensure all ran smoothly. The whole team at the Santana work seamlessly to ensure the guests are made welcome and enjoy a pleasant stay, while this was our first visit to the Santana it won't be our last. Well done to the team at Santana and look forward to visiting again soon. Mark & Linda Clarke

This was our first trip to Goa and after lot of research on the internet we settled for Santana. The USP of the resort is its location...just 2min walk to the Sinquerim beach. Other beaches like Candolim, Baga and Calangute are also not very far off. The Calamari shack serves great food although we could not have a taste of it as it was closed in the month of September.

We stayed in one of the Deluxe Sea View rooms which was close to the reception, the in-house restaurant and one of the two swimming pools. The property is beautifully adorned and surrounded by spacious well maintained gardens. The Splash pool has a submerged bar to chill out. The rooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean and the staff was very helpful.
Every night after dinner we used to walk down to the beach and enjoy the calmness of the night ,the ebb and flow of the waves hitting the shore.
The reception guys will help to arrange for 2 wheelers/4 wheelers for sight-seeing purpose.

Overall, our4N/5D holiday in Goa was an amazing experience and a memory of a lifetime.

The resort and the resort staff is just amazing. they make sure that you enjoy your stay.
The USP of this resort is the location, You have to just walk couple of meters to meet the might ocean. clean isolated beach no nonsense stuff. The rooms are big enough to accommodated a 2+2 family. The roams are neat and clean and also have very good aura in them. The complimentary breakfast was good. I think they should include more options in veg(like more fruits and some more Indian morning snacks options).
Will come back to the resort next time while visiting Goa..

Room Tip: Book in advance. The hotel is always booked in the peak seasons.

I booked Santana looking at the reviews on Trip Advisor and I am glad I did that. This place is superb. Amazing Location, friendly staff, nice and clean rooms/pool, excellent food and all that you need for a perfect holiday. This place is walking distance from Candolim beach which is one of the best beaches in Goa, very peaceful and less crowded. Major attractions (Fort Aguada) of Goa, markets, night life (SinQ, LKP), restaurants all at hands reach distance.

Room Tip: Room near pool for better access..
