“Crackin' 4 day mini - break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Me and my wife have just returned from a most excellent 4 day mini-break. Having booked a last minute cheapy, we were very apprehensive about what we would actually get. We, therefore, had a massive sense of relief when the coach dropped us off at this clearly well maintained hotel situated on a fabulous beach! The rooms are quite basic and on the small side but like all the hotel, they are immaculately clean with fresh towels and linens daily.
The food was much better than we had hoped for and featured some tasty Catalonian fayre; spicy sausages, slow cooked rabbit, octopus, sea bass and of course paella. The extensive salad bar and selection of cold cuts and cheeses was great too.
The only real downside was the all inclusive drinks; in the evening, you had to queue 20 minutes each time that you wanted 2 half's of lager - it would have been far better if beer could be served in pint glasses at night.
All in all, we had a crackin' time that was enhanced by meeting a great couple from Sunderland - non stop belly laughs all the way!

4 day break booked for a refresher after the 6 weeks holidays with NO kids - Me and my partner booked the Planamar but due to a problem with the rooms they upgraded us to this one which we were over the moon with. Staff friendly, the place is spot less and the food was good. They had about 5 or 6 different options for breakfast, diner and tea - you would have to be very picky with food if you didnt find something you liked.

The only thing i would pick on is the queue for the bar - maybe they need to serve the drink in bigger glasses or get more bar staff. Overall though - excellent location 5 big steps and your on the beach - we are planning to go back next year.

I was SO nervous about taking my family to this hotel after reading previous reviews. Holidays are very precious to us; we are on a limited budget and booked this holiday at the last minute. I travelled with my husband and two children, age 2 and 4.

The hotel is in a perfect location, right on the beach. Our room was incredibly basic and faced the railway track, but actually our children loved this. I would recommend taking a travel kettle as our room didn't have one. The rooms are cleaned every day. Noise levels were quite high at night even off-season, but we managed. As for food - we really liked it. My husband is a chef and is very particular, and we all enjoyed the Spanish fare. Thankfully our children are really unfussy and eat everything. I didn't like the card system for getting drinks, and I definitely wouldn't want to go in the busy season because I imagine it would take a while to get served.

The kids club lady was great! The pools are chilly, but we are Scottish and plunged in regardless. There is a little train that leaves from outside and goes right up the hill behind Santa Susanna, which our children loved. We swam in the sea every day, but be careful as the water gets deep very quickly. For €5 you can get a Thai massage on the beach....do it, they are a.maz.ing.

We met lots of families that had been coming to Sana Susanna for years. We won't, only because we like to try new holiday destinations. Holidays are what you make of them and we had a lovely time.

Great location,booked planamar which was 3 star but was overbooked so we got this 4 star as replacement so was expecting better.
Rooms were in need of updating but cleaned every day by lovely cleaning staff,bar staff were miserable apart from one youngster who was always happy,outside bar was closed so waiting for drinks in the inside bar took ages,food was nice but got a bit boring after a few days.
Snacks after meal times were a joke,you had to eat them in the restaurant and not take them outside as i found out by a rude member of staff who wanted to see my all inclusive card before i could have something to eat,and told me i could not take the food out of the area which was 2 ham and cheese rolls,as my son missed lunch as he was ill so i tried to take some food for him.
We stayed at the royal sun suites two years before and that hotel was far better and modern than this one,the German and eastern european guests were very rude and greedy there were two elderly British guests who put they drinks on the table and went to get food,a party of eight Germans wanted the tables picked up they drinks put them on the waste trolley,when the guests got back to the table the Germans got very angry.
We would not go back to this hotel but would stay in the sun suites again

Me and my boyfriend went to htop royal sun for three nights via on the beach.
As a whole, on the beach ---> transfers not great, lengthy time and not faxed through departure time! Ryan air did not provide great service but thats just me whinging!
The hotel was absolutely fine! Cleaned everyday if you want towels changing that can be done by leaving them in the bath, the shower is like a tap you'd see in a third world country but did not bother us as we went to enjoy ourselves and not pick faults! You can still wash.
Very basic, a little dated and clean enough for a few days.
Location is right on the beach (great!) beach is lush, lots of people looking to offer you a massage, which we accepted and thouroughly enjoy although a little annoying as all you hear is hello massage, people selling fruit and knock off stuff also wandering about, be polite they are only trying to earn a living!!!
The food is, personally diabolical, we lived off chips or ate out. We are not fussy but ... dear me.
Wouldn't recommend all inc, the drinks are local if you want important, i.e normal safe drinks you pay a small price; however you can get an upgrade of a gold card if thats something you'd benefit from. If your're looking for entertainment there is very little in hotel; again doesn't bother us as went to spend time with each other!
two pools, rather chillly, just get to the beach!
Lots of nearby shops and cute bars, few places to eat.
For what you pay for this isn't a bad hotel, in a good location (apart from the undercrossing with the train) but you get used to it!
Enjoy yourself your'e on holiday!

Room Tip: High for the view, beware, there are 6 floors and three elavators, so make sure you either like to w...

hi stayed here for a week with my husband sister and brother in-law had a great time hotel clean my husband said bar man in restaurant was a really chatty made an effort to greet everyone by name and in their own language, impressed him by his welsh! hotel right on beach lovely setting though sand is rather gritty. something for everyone to eat in restaurant.stayed at many h top hotels this was the best, as someone said sun doesn`t stay on sun terrace or pool for long but so close to beach didn`t matter sea quite deep drop and choppy. Train line at back of hotel didnt bother us, cheap to use the train, station not far up the road, and they have some lovely stalls out on the street at night with crafts and gifts etc . People will always moan about something but we all paid £350 each all inclusive for the week for our hols inc transfers and airport parking, and think we had a good deal with what we paid .
We all would stay here again.

Definitely not a 4-star hotel. Maybe if you were there in 1982!!! Dirty room upon arrival, cigarette ends on the balcony (from previous guests), smelly beds, dated and damaged furniture, less than average food and do not let me start on lifts. Waiting for 10 - 15 minutes at times and doors closing as you were coming in ( have couple bruises on arms). We were there with our 20-months daughter and was scared to death as she was going into the lift and doors were starting to close. No way it would pass health and safety regulation in England. Outside pool was cold and seen sun for about 2 hours per day. Some staff friendly but staff in outside bar made so much effort not to notice you it was beyond believe. Program during the day - none (if I dont count playig cards) and very poor in the evening. On the plus side - good sangria,beer and location - right on the beach with great sea. Will definitely not come back again!!!!
