Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

I'll keep it short; nice and clean apartments, shame that beds are not very comfortable. Breakfast is pretty good (adequate). Swimming pool is also fine. Plenty good restaurants in the area, although not too many bars. I had a nice stay with wife and daughter.

Stayed: October 2013, traveled with family

Have stayed here before and always find it a good basic all rounder. It's well located......come out, down the slope, left for Las Americas, Safari centre or Los Cristianos or turn right for La Caletta.
The hotel is clean and tidy, may be a bit dated but overall good value for money, one can't complain.....well Air Con at my time of life would be a big bonus but we can't have everything.

This hotel was much much less than we have expected.
The rooms were absolutely terrible, the beds were incredibly uncomfortable - so uncomfortable that we could not sleep well.
Everything was very old. The rooms were not cleaned regularly enough.
And it is deffinitely not a hotel for young people, when we were there we felt that we are in a home for elderly people.

Nice and clean hotel on great location. Supermarkets, restaurants and excursion routes next to hotel entrance. 5-10min walk to beach.
Nice breakfast with good choice of everything. Staff speaks English very good and are quite helpful on every question.
Only things that I didn't like: crappy free lobby Internet or very expensive, payTV (why?), charge for in-room safe.

Stayed here 15th oct for 7 days.
After checking in we got to room to find the cleaner still in our room cleaning and had to wait in the corridor for an hour.
Breakfast frequently ran out.
Cleaner left her master card in our door after cleaning it midweek.
Not very friendly on reception.
Ok for a base

Myself and a friend stayed at the Santa Maria after booking a last minute holiday to Tenerife, late September 2013. We booked this hotel due to it's location to the beach. Within 5mins of walking we were at the gorgeous Torviscas beach. Two very comfortable sunbeds and an umbrella cost €15 for the day. A must if you want to laze all day in the gorgeous sun all day! On the beach there is a bar/snack bar, orders can be delivered straight to your sunbed so no need to move!

We had booked a double room, on arrival we were upgraded to an apartment which over looked the pool. This was a lovely size with a separate bedroom. We had a Samsung flat screen TV which has a number of English channels (BBC/ITV/ITV2/Channel 4/ Film4) which kept us happy while getting ready for a night out! The kitchenette was what you would expect/ need if you only plan on making breakfast/ lunch. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of wardrobe space! The shower was really powerful, however no ventilation in the bathroom. Pool was lovely with a generous amount of sunbeds. You did get people putting their towels down at the crack of dawn but who cares? If they're sad enough to get up early, let them! There was more then enough beds and sun traps to go round!!

I have to say, the only minor (very minor) downside to this hotel was the lack of air conditioning in the room. Most days it reached about 30degrees, then you add two girls having a shower, drying and straightening their hair...that is a lot of heat even with the balcony door open!! However, there was a door stop to allow you to open the front door, we found opening both the front and back while getting ready helped a HUGE amount, it created a nice breeze. The fact we felt safe enough to do this shows the hotel had a friendly atmosphere!! There is a fan in the bedroom that we had to have on all night. I can't say it did a lot apart from make a rather annoying noise.

Would I go back? Definitely! Already looking in to next years trip and we will be staying at the HOVIMA Santa Maria!!

Bearing in mind that Santa Maria is a 3 star hotel, we enjoyed our stay there. Our main problem during our 11 day stay was the temperature in the bedroom - hovering around 30 degrees C every day. Outside, and on the balcony, the breeze made temperatures bearable, but the ceiling fan did little to help. One point to note: when you remove your key card from the slot next to the door, it cuts the electric (including the fan). I substituted my petrol loyalty card, which kept the electrics on. Don't leave your Platinum Credit Card there though!!!. We stayed b&b in an apartment (separate bedroom) overlooking the pool, with a side sea view, eating out most of the time. The tiny kitchen area has only 2 hotplates and a microwave oven for cooking. There is also a kettle and toaster. We made good use of the fridge though.
Breakfasts were good. Tables are set only with sugar sachets and a small bin ... it took a couple of days getting used to finding condiments, cutlery and serviettes, but the bare tables meant that efficient staff could quickly clear them, meaning no waiting for guests. Food variety was good, all manner of cereals, cooked and continental breakfasts were available ... with fruit, yoghurts and pastries too. Our room was not cleaned/ beds not made at least 5 days out of the 11, and on one occasion the door was not properly shut by the cleaner ... leaving it unlocked all day until our return. A bad mould/ damp smell persisted in the bathroom for several days. We noticed a smell of bleach one day ... the shower curtain had been replaced and the bath thoroughly cleaned. No more smells! Evening entertainment was poor. The swimming pool is small and deepens rapidly. The depth markings were not easy to see, and the part-time lifeguard seemed to ensure he didn't miss out on his lunch and tea breaks. Some of the time he seemed to be texting on his phone. One thing that was really annoying was towels being placed on sun loungers by selfish guests, early each morning, and left there all day. WHEN WILL HOTELS TAKE STEPS TO STOP THIS PRACTICE?
Forget the WiFi! The signal is good but the speed is dire. It's also very expensive. All in all we had a reasonably good stay at Santa Maria.

Room Tip: Apartments have separate bedroom, worth the extra.
