In the month of July, I visited this place for a holiday trip with family. It was a very good city to visit. The location of the hotel was good; it was near to the beach. The car was the best way to reach this place. The appearance of the hotel was good, the ambience was good. The front office was average, it was not maintained properly. It was an online booking. The room was very good to stay, the environment was good, and the sea view was also nice. Service was average, it was a late service. The food was good to taste, it was expensive, but the quantity was good. The overall it was a good stay.
We visited "Santana Beach Resort, Candolim, Goa" last week (October-2015) for our leisure trip. We were two families (Total 5 adults / 2 kids) and stayed at the Resort for 4 days and 3 nights The best part of this resort is Location, accessibility, services and Type of rooms. The resort is located exactly at the "Candolim Beach", you can simply walk to the beach from this property. One side of resort is Beach and other side there is famous "Casino" Most of the support staff - including security, receptionists, Housekeeping and Restaurant are extremely helpful. They deal with foreigners too so they know how to deal with customers This resort have more than 40 spacious rooms spread across different blocks. It has two beautiful swimming pools and one of them offers drink on pool side too. They do have beautiful garden and restaurant as well. But no other sports activities Everything is excellent about the resort except food. They do have various options but still "taste" is not up to the mark and Breakfast menu is repetitive Overall the package offered by Resort is indeed moderate compare to other high-cost resorts and I would certainly prefer to visit again.
The Santana is situated just on the beach, although you can see the sea from only 3/4 rooms. But that's beside the point. You can just walk out of their back door on to the beach. The good points:. We took the suite room (no. 714)large airy rooms, fitted with all necessary amenities, a road side balcony and a balcony overlooking the pool inside, comfy bed, and even has a small kitchen area. The bathroom was a thing of beauty. Spotlessly clean( bathrooms near beach area tend to develop stains). The pool was clean and cool with a SUNKEN BAR, ample sunbeds, baby pool, etc. (Although we found one of the pools closed for repairs). The bar was amply stocked with some good quality finger food. The semi open restaurant was well designed. The service - best part of the hotel: always smiling, always at hand but never intrusive. Specially will mention the name of SUBAL from restaurant and ANJAN from housekeeping. Outstanding boys. Keep it up the not so goods( as there was nothing BAD). - The resort is of long rectangular shape. So if you had roadside rooms( like we did) which are pool facing. Brace yourself for long walk inside the resort through beautifully decorated winding pathways till you reach the beach. That can be a bother while returning after a dip in the sea. - The road to the beach goes past the backside of the famous Calamari beach shack and so may become very congested /dirty during peak seasons. - When you are charging around 5000 per room, free WiFi is almost guaranteed. But here when I asked I found that WiFi had to be paid for Room Tip: for quieter rooms choose the suites (pool facing), for sea views choose the deluxe rooms.
I visited Santana in first week of March with my family which has an infant. I was looking for a beach front property, with nice access to shacks and Candolim Dando beach, close to Candolim market and has recreational facilities like swimming pool and lawns. Santana ticked all the boxes for me and the decision I took to opt for this hotel turned out to be an master class Pros:. Location is superb. You can walk for a minute and you are one of the (if not the) best beaches in Goa. The white sands and some of the best shacks are located here. Market is just outside the resort. The staff and service is very good. Check-Inn was smooth, whenever we asked something, they delivered that without any delay. Nothing to complain. Importance to cleanliness and overall housekeeping - The best I have seen in any resorts. Food and breakfast was good and varied and tasty. The in-house restaurant is good and provides great ambience Cons:. I had two rooms booked, the room that was allotted to me and the one to my parents were in different buildings. The rooms in our building were not 100% occupied, not sure why I was denied two rooms in same building (if not same floor). The resort is 80% occupied by foreigners and some Indian tourists might not be comfortable But all in all, I am very satisfied with the resort and would like to go there again.
