Arrived at Santa Monica Hotel at 10am Sat June 16th met by very friendly staff, wasn't expecting to book in so early but our room was ready and as requested on a low floor ,level 1.Room size the norm for 3* hotel , 2 comfortable beds with bed lockers, wardrobe, chest draws etc...only 6 clothes hangers between us but not a big prob' .fair sized balcony with patio table -2chairs, bathroom ok with usual refinements and a decent shower with glass panel over bath ( i hate the shower curtains that wrap around you when showering ), could have done with some lighting over the mirror for you ladies applying mackup.Nice reception and bar lounge area leading onto the pool, with smaller pool for kiddies. Stage at end of pool area for outside entertainment, which was varied enough throughout the day and evening . Restaurant was nice and airy and had a good choice for breakfast English or continental, always a good and varied meal menu for evening dinner with fresh sea foods ,carved ham, steaks,pastas, gorgeous mixed salads and loads of choice for sweet deserts and of course plenty of fruits. Hotel location is up a slight incline, one road up from the beach, with a fantastic cabaret club just facing it called chaplins, 4 - 5 different look and sound alike acts on between 9pm -2.30am ,then disco until 5am ; it's a family orientated club and children are entertained in side and outside by 2 staff with face painting , drawing ,colouring and games to keep them occupied, also big screen tv's for sport etc...Nice decor inside with full stage set up and brilliant compare Midget 'Jamie Johns' from channel 4 show 'The Seven Dwarfs'.Noise from this venue is minimal at night if you are a light sleeper. This hotel is in a fine location for the excelent beach ,promonade with its dancing water fountains to music ,its proximity to other cabaret and bar venues and of course the shopping area and restaurants all on the door step. Aquality hotel at the right price .

I stayed in this hotel in 2007 with a friend of mine and her young daughter. It was lovely and clean, the rooms were a good size for the tree of us. We were on a half board basis. The food was nice, with a good selection most night, what you would usually expect at a hotel buffet. The staff were very friendly nothing was too much trouble.
The pool was a good size with a smaller pool for children. Childrens entertainment was run nightly as the parents enjoyed a drink while watching the show.
The beach and main bars and restaurants were only a 5 min walk away, I would however warn that this hotel is up a hill so not very suitable for anyone who is infirm or has trouble walking.

We had our holiday arrangements changed within a week of flying out in October, we were originally booked into a hotel in Cambrils.
The hotel is situated in a good area for local shops, restaurants and the beach, which was lovely (a great water front area).
The hotel itself is somewhat dated in its style, but very clean and some of the hotel staff were friendly. The rooms were basic, but again clean, however the bathroom was a little on the small side and in need of some re-decoration.
The only down sides for us was the nightclub across the road and the hotel food.

There is a nightclub situated just down the road from the hotel, but the noise of people shouting etc at 1am to 6am wasn't great, especially over three consecutive nights and we were only there a week. We couldn't shut the patio doors to balcony as the heating would come on in the room regardless what we did to the temperature gauge. We did complain but the only option was to be changed to a room on the other side of the hotel, which guests were woken early by workmen working on a nearby hotel, so little point moving.

The hotel food was dreadful. It consisted of heated lamp food that was bland or stale and then re-served the following day. No authentic Spanish dishes which was a shame as well as very little fruit. The dining room set was unfriendly, the staff weren't much help either.

Finally, if you are planning a visit with a family, you might want to think again as the pool is too small for the size of the hotel, but then again the beach is only 5 minutes away. There is very little entertainment out of season too.

We stayed here for a week in July 2011. This wasn't the hotel we booked we had booked in Jamie1 but when we got there we were told that we were not booked in so our tour company had to get us another hotel. Nice hotel and the rooms are really clean. The pool was very small and not alot of people can sit around it with the sunbeds. The food was rubbish you either had beef or pork stew every night with chips. They didn't do any bar snacks at lunch we had to go out every lunch time for something to eat. Finally there was a nightclub at the end of the street called Kiss really loud between 1am to 6am you could hear everything. The apartment opposite the hotel were loud aswell you had alot of young ones drinking and doing other things at night they started about 11pm. Would not stay at this hotel again

Stayed in the Santa Monica Playa with my boyfriend for a week 23rd July. We stayed half board.
On arrival the reception booked us in very swiftly with no problems and we went straight to our room which was on the first floor with a pool view.
The room was a twin but we pushed the beds together and was perfect size for 2 with a bath/shower room which was well set out. Balcony area had a table and chairs, ideal for sitting out on a night
Food was perfectly fine. Breakfast was either toast, cereal croissants, meats and cheese or bacon sausage beans and eggs.
Lunch had a selection of 3 or 4 meals which are all tasty, even if it looked a little different to what we are used to.
Main meals are the same as lunch really but with a chef freshly preparing something e.g., fish ,roast meats ,pasta dishes.
The room was cleaned every day and the pool area is cleaned every morning before you are allowed out. All the floors are jet washed.
After reading other reviews I can’t complain about the noise from outside, if we went to bed before midnight you could hear the entertainment by the pool area but it never kept us awake. Never heard any noise from the local bars.
Hotel location is perfect if you want to be in the centre of it all. Slightly steep hill up from the bars but it is avoidable if you walk round.
All in all a great holiday and would stay here again.
