HOVIMA Santa Maria
Ranked #40 of 60 Hotels in Costa Adeje
Reviewed October 23, 2012

The room was large, but needed a lot of TLC. No air conditioning - just a fan to stir the overheated air. The door unto the veranda lacked a lock so someone had provided a length of wood to drop into the slide to stop it being opened. Cleaning was so efficient that only those areas in the centre of floors got cleaned - not the corners of the ensuite toilet.
My wife and I like to sample foreign food - but to serve poor quality streaky beacon and burned fried eggs with partially cooked crepes etc every morning was too much. The fruit juices were not only not recognisable, but were undrinkable.
I doubt if they had a chef as they would not have put their name to the over cooked meat masquerading as steak, the pile of bones as chops and the pork hamburgers which were served up for dinner in the evenings. Any self respecting resturant kitchen would have been ashamed of the poor quality of the food! The staff, with one or two exceptions need to be told that holiday customers wish to see happy people rather than surly long faces.
As for 1 ero per 10 minutes for computer internet access or 6 euros to access wi-fi in the lobby and a pay by slot TV in the room - what century are Hovima, the owners of the Santa Marie living in ?????

Room Tip: Do not get a room overlooking the pool - they are noisy and very hot as they face south and have no...

just back from 9 night stay in Santa maria.we booked through hotels4u.com a studio, when we arrived we got a one bedroom apartment in a dark basement part ,(room 1017), we were looking at a brick wall was not impressed, i asked at could we be moved they said they were full but would move us in 2 days, which they did to a studio on 3rd floor facing pool & Sea, very happy (room 230), the staff are very helpful couldn't fault them. the hotel is very clean, we didn't Que up for beds as there was enough beds left even at 11am. the one fan in the room didn't help to cool you down we had to hire a 2nd fan 15 euro a week. would stay at Santa maria again as its close to beach and restaurants an night life .

This is a great hotel with great staff but beware if you book through Alpharooms you will be classed as a second class person. I am just back from a great 2 week break on the 9th of October and had no hesitation booking the Hotel for my elderly parents who have some mobility issues. On arrival today 16th October they were put in the basement which has poor access and bad lighting. When they asked to be moved they were told they had booked through Alpharooms so they get these PROMO rooms which have no view and in the bowels (I mean the bowels) of the Hotel they could move if they paid another £110 per room. When I contacted Alpharooms to ask them to help, the reply was short and sweet, 'the advert does not say that this Hotel HAS disabled access so you should have known not to book.....yes you did read this correctly rather than the advert saying ' This hotel has some rooms that are not suitable for disabled people' instead it is up to you the customer to assume this and go elsewhere! I will never use this company again. They did put me through to the 'In resort support' who was a bloke in sheffield who said exactly the same and then rudely hung up on me....where was the support there Ian? I am glad the messages are recorded because it will go to show at no time was I rude or angry.....

GO ENJOY THIS HOTEL.....DON'T USE ALPHAROOMS TO BOOK IT THOUGH!!!!

Room Tip: Don't use Alpharooms and don't mention you are disabled....

Just come back from a lovely holiday at the Santa Maria the weather was fantastic the Santa Maria was spotless clean and lovely friendly staff. The only draw back would be they need air con. Had trouble sleeping at night there was a cealing fan that gave slight relief. Most people who I spoke to were sleeping on the balcony. Never had any problems getting a sunbed during the day. All in all would recommend the Santa Maria just need to sort out some air con

Everything was ok but there was couple issuess we didnt like. Irons only for rent, hairdryer if you want to use you have to keep finger on the button all the time while you drying as i have long hair it was very annoying. The most ridiculous thing was internet. Apart of paying for it you couldnt enjoy it in your room as there is ony one area behind bar near reception where you can only be connect.
