Santana Beach Resort
Ranked #3 of 67 Hotels in Candolim
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We have just come back from our third stay at Santana Beach. When we arrived this time it felt like coming home - the same friendly and helpful staff, such beautiful gardens, a clean and spacious room with a big comfortable bed, and calm. Two minutes to the sandy beach via the leafy garden, two minutes to the buzzing town the other way - a perfect location. And when we arrive back at the hotel after a hot day on the beach or a busy evening in the bars and restaurants of Candolim, we just chill out - it's that sort of place, that good. It's family-run, and you can tell that from the atmosphere - the food is good and the staff are great - nothing is too much trouble (even shifting your luggage at 3am); but they don't crowd you. You may be a guest but it feels like family. It may not have five stars in the catalogue but it beats any other place we have looked at! And we'll be back there in 2015!

If you are looking for a good resort in north goa, this one can be one of the option.
Rooms are clean, Staff is friendly, and most importantly, the location is awesome.
Within 10kms you will find and can enjoy all the life of Goa.

My sister said in Jan 13, we have booked to stay at the Santana, will you have a look and see what you think. At the time we were staying in Calangute, so we did and like the look of it, so we booked to stay there Jan 14. How right we were to do so, arranged with the manager to upgrade on arrival and loved the room. The gardens are so well looked after and maintained it is a credit to the ground staff, the rooms are cleaned everyday with towel art as well, the one the day we left was extremely touching, thank you lads. All the staff were so friendly and helpful, especially Saresh and Sohan were really lovely lads. Only a short walk down to the Calamari shack, right on the beach. I feel that since staying at the Santana, we have been spoilt, it might be the best hotel in Goa, since returning home, we have booked to go back next year.

Room Tip: We paid extra but loved the room, 116, would stay there again.

Stayed here for 2 weeks in this lovely paradise beach resort and couldn't happier!
Lovely landscaped gardens with Portuguese style apartments with lots of palm trees, banana trees, exotic plants and flowers. Two swimming pools however you are walking distance to the beach. The place is so warm, friendly and inviting that you don't want to leave!
The staff are brilliant and will try and help with any queries or problems you have. Staff and security guards always say hello and are welcoming.
The location is brilliant - away from the madness Calangute and Baga and even away from the busy road of Candolim.
The rooms are large and we had one with an extra kitchenette (not sure if they all have these) great shower and very clean. The whole resort is clean and tidy. It was a delight coming back to our room to see the great towel art and flowers decorated from the room boys.
Recommend the Eye of the Tiger tour which you can book through the rep – great way to get out of the touristy Goa and see the ‘real’ India including train journey, elephants and tigers.

I stayed at this resort for 4 days from 2nd April till 5th April 2013, the staff are very friendly, the food is amazing, their cheese omelette served during breakfast is the best.
The location is very ideally, it is located just a few meters from the beach, the beach is very clean and almost empty compared to Baga and other beaches.
Overall it is was an extremely memorable stay, will surely be going back to Santana soon.
