Santiago hotel is basic but spotlessly clean. It has every thing you need and is located near to the bars and shops. The staff are so helpful n friendly from the cleaners n waiters to Janet on reception...we were suprised at the entertainment and how gud it was.All entertainment was finished for 12 so it didnt disturb ur sleep...So much choice for food and drink..from the main resteruant to the chinese on an evenin LOVELY

I stayed at this hotel with a friend due to other previously good reviews. The swimming pool is very nice and clean and the breakfasts were quite good with good variety. The balconies all look towards the pool area (all rooms have balconies). This could be noisy if the hotel is busy. Our room had it's own kitchenette and lounge area, bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom is ok but not great. You shower over the floor and do wet the toilet seat but it is ok as you can just close the lid. If you are happy to shower under those conditions then I would say that the bathroom was ok. The bedroom was fine too, although the narrow French doors leading out of the bedroom onto the patio gave the room / apartment a bit of a pokey / dark feeling. The rooms were cleaned every day but I do not think that the bedding was changed during our 3 nights but this is normal for a 3 star hotel. I would stay overall the stay was fine and staff were friendly. It is a good budget hotel for those that are not too fussed about perfect amenities. The hotel is within all areas of Calangute and is accessible by foot. (Written by a South African / British person who travelled with an Indian friend).

if you can get used to the culture shock then what a holiday you will have. We have stayed in some of the top hotels in the world, so we were not prepared for the Santiago, however that said the staff the people the weather and the relaxing atmosphere more than make up for that. Thank you David, Paulo, Pritesh, Hyacinth (a fella) by the way Naz, the football encyclpeadia, to name just a few were by far the very best staff it has been our pleasure to look after us. Luxury + posh is not what it;s about!. It's about enjoyment of your holiday and that comes in spades in Goa. Try it you will be amazed and don't leave without a visit to the elephants!!!!

We stayed at Easter towards the end of the tourist season. The hotel has an excellent location quiet at night but close to many restaurants and bars. 5-10min walk to the beach and Titos lane with plenty to look at along the way. The rooms are basic and the furniture needs to be updated but it suited our needs and was clean. The hotel staff are excellent.
We will stay here again.
