    Hotel dated needs upgrade in rooms
    Hotel had a construction site next door so constant noise from the build next door. Was moved to another room which was away from the building works but small basement time room. Very disappointed for the price paid. Hotel is in a poor state of repair in the rooms. I would say 2-3 star. Definitely not a 4 star.

    Good family hotel
    Just returned from a week spent at the Hotel Santana, the stay was very good overall, with the friendliness of the staff being one of the major plus points. In particular Karen the waitress was very helpful and went the extra mile to make us feel welcome, especially the children. One negative about the area currently is the amount of development going on at the rear of the hotel and all around the neighbourhood, which resulted in noise, but not enough to say it was a holiday wrecker, but enough to be annoying at times. We had a issue with the room, which was the bathroom flooded after the shower drain didn’t take away the water from the shower, the issue was quickly resolved by the maintenance team. One piece of advice is to take multi socket plugs as there were only 3 sockets in the room, and with 4 of us in a family room, it meant devices being charged one at a time. If I returned to the area I would consider the hotel again.The family room was nice and spacious, and was everything we expected. Unfortunately the Zen Garden was not open, which would have given the hotel more appeal, especially of an evening if entertainment was put on in this area.

    Very good 8.0
    Excellent location to explore the island
    Room very nice, as has been recently refurbished. Dining room will receive an update early next year, and that will be a bonus. Unfortunately, building work next door, with work starting at 7.30 in the morning, so no peaceful lie-in. On the plus side, the hotel couldnt be in a better position for the bus station, only 200 meters away, serving a lot of destinations. Staff very friendly, and evening entertainment usually very good.Roof top pool, and inside pool very inviting.

    Over all it was not bad. This is the 4th stay at the hotel but this time we where disappointed. Curtains in the room too thin we couldnt make darkness. Bathroom sink clogged.

    Good 6.0
    Not what we were promised
    Poor quality of room. Could barely fit in as we had what amounted to a bed, desk and washroom. Not what we paid for and won’t be back to Santana
