"Wonderful long weekend at Santa Cristina Beach"
We wanted to visit the Costa Brava region of Spain as an extension of our visit to Barcelona. We were not disappointed with our decision to go to one of the closest beaches, Santa Cristina in the Lloret de Mar district. Santa Marta Hotel overlooks this beautiful beach and provided a wonderful and restful stay for me, my husband and our teenage daughter. […] Upon arrival, I requested a room overlooking the sea and they accommodated us. The room had a spacious balcony and plenty of room for all three of us. The bathroom even had double sinks, a bidet, and everything was impeccably clean. On site was a wonderful restaurant which served dinner on a terrace overlooking the sea, a breakfast buffet on an equally beautiful terrace, and a lunch buffet on the beach. The food was amazing. We loved the complementary appetizers at the start of each dinner, and the complementary glasses of cava. The Hotel also had a wonderful salt water pool, a hot tub, tennis courts, library, and live performances in the evening. The staff was attentive and engaging. We loved every aspect of our stay and would highly recommend this Hotel for all types of travelers. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel and staff"
The only downside is that you have to drive if you want to go anywhere cause the hotel is a remote location, it's a short drive downtown but you can't walk it. If you are ok with staying in the hotel and the beach the entire stay than it's perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really nice hotel"
Went there for weekend, was a relaxing break. The seafood buffet during lunch was definitely a highlight with fresh grilled lobster, razor clams etc. Delicious!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"More attention to the details needed"
The location is very good and calm. Beach is nice, swimming pool ok and tennis courts looked fine. Parking is perfect and you are allowed a small fee to bring your dog. We had our own car and would not recommend staying here if you are without own transportation since you will need such to go to the nearby cities. The hotel is 5 stars and with that […] in mind one would expect all to be in perfect order, but unfortunately this is not the case. The air-condition did not work, there is no light on the verandas connected to your room, the bed light is weak and makes reading difficult. Internet connection is only really reliable in the shared areas and not in our room - it could only connect in the hall, which makes reading/working from the room a bit complicated. We did not manage to find the key to the safety box and the closets were hard to open & close. We went there in the low season and understandably there is less service people around and some of the facilities close to the pool and beach are closed, but one would expect to find enough available towels ready for the quests. Generally the personnel needs to act more proactive in their attitude towards helping the quests and inform about all the facilities upon arrival. Would like to mention that the breakfast and the service here was excellent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"tres bel emplacement"
j'ai beaucoup apprécié le cadre et l'immense parc, le petit déjeuner sur la terrasse face à la mer est vraiment très agréable. Les buffets tant pour le petit déjeuner que pour le déjeuner sont très complets et très variés. Le parking est immense et les voitures à l'abri du soleil, globalement nous avons été enchantés par ce séjour le seul bémol a trait […] au parc de la piscine qui peine compte tenu de sa surface à recevoir l'ensemble des clients de l'hotel.

"Great sea view!"
05/06/15 Diannka Limassol, Cyprus
In middle of June 2014, we had a corporate trip to Barcelona and we were a group of appr. 50 people. Stunning, tranquilent view from the rooms. Perfect for the couples and kids. For young people, too far from Barcelona, which is cons for me. Food is average, small portions. Overall great services, but the hotel itself is between 3 or 4 stars, not more. Time to renovate.

A luxurious hotel which lives up to its standards. You pay the price but when you get there, you know why. The view is breathtaking and the spa amazing. The only problem is the price for the buffet: 55€/ person or 25€ for children. It's worth it but really a lot. You can enjoy it all day long on the beach.
"Great venue for business cocktail party"
05/02/15 Emilie M London, United Kingdom
Great venue with breathtaking views and beautiful remote beach. Staff was super friendly. Not close to the centre of lloret de mar but definitely worth exploring on business or couples weekend. It is set in a quiet area in the middle of the forest by the beach. There is also a lovely pool overlooking the see, amazing!
""An excellent hotel""
01/27/15 Евгений Ч Chisinau, Moldova
Lovely hotel and great service !!! All your wishes will be fulfilled at the highest level in no time! Special mention deserve the breakfasts! Nowhere and never have I seen such a choice for breakfast gourmet dishes! Also advise you to visit a swimming pool, spa services are available. Great location and great view from the window) I do not know what to write negative, it just was not. The hotel deserves a solid 5+
"My favourite hotel in spain"
08/14/14 Jean T Wellington, United Kingdom
We stayed here out of season, and still found everything to be excellent. Service, welcome, bedrooms, restaurant food and location. Plenty of parking space and not too difficult to find. The location and the winding path through the trees to the beach area was superb. This is also a dog-friendly hotel and he was made most welcome too. The beach area was very, very good, and it is obviously the place to come when the season is in full swing. I cannot praise this hotel enough, our room was indeed very comfortable and we had good restful nights sleep each night. I thought ours was a little bit on the small side but the views from our windows more than made up for that. Bathroom was good, clean and very well supplied with plenty of large towels and accessories. Evening meals in the restaurant were excellent as were the morning breakfasts. My only regret is that I havn't yet had the chance to revisit and enjoy once again.
"Avoid. Overpriced, 2 star quality."
08/12/14 easartin Dallas, Texas
I was renting a house in the area and took a "day pass" at the Santa Marta (on a recommendation) to be able to enjoy a quieter beach area than the rest of Blanes/Lloret de Mar area. At 30 Euros a person, you expect...something. The only thing the 30 Euros covered was a chair. Even the towels were only reserved for hotel guests (which we were informed about in a very nasty/rude manner). Terrible drinks, terrible service, rude rude rude. Then we went to grab lunch at the lunch buffet. The food was very mediocre and matched more of a "Luby's" buffet but a spanish version...until you get the bill. Lunch for 2 adults, 2 small children was...175 Euros. No alcohol. That's over $230 (saving everyone from the math) for some cold pasta, barely fresh shrimp and fish and a salad bar. Maybe once upon a time this was a nice hotel but its probably been over 20 years yet they still throw out the attitude like they are the best in Spain. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place.

Located on a beautiful beach with nice natural landscaping. We went for the sea view room which was not worth it, all you could see were tree tops, total rip off. We had an infestation of thousands of ants in our room, when notified the front desk staff acted rude and indifferent. I specifically asked if they were going to spray our room because I would of liked to remove some personal items like my toothbrush. I was told that someone would get back to me with a solution. When I returned to my room, later that day, it smelled of bug spray. No one ever got back to me prior to exterminating our room. The walls were thin, you could here everything from the room above and next door. The beds were uncomfortable, the linens and towels were cheap, not luxury at all. The air conditioning squeaked all night, no one ever came to fix it after several complaints. There was no air conditioning in the gym. The spa attendant wasn't service oriented at all! You had to pay for beach chairs at a beach resort, attendant didn't tell us until after he set up chairs. Internet rarely worked. This is my first review on tripadvisor, I used tripadvisor to find this hotel and felt obligated to share my experience. All this place has is a beautiful beach, the rest of the amenities and services are sub par. The entire Costa Brava has many other beautiful secluded beaches. Do not expect luxury at Santa Marta. The best part of my stay was taking the boat to Tossa, it comes right into the bay at Santa Marta and takes you up the coast.

Stay away! This hotel not worth a penny that they taking. I didnt like anything. Start from room,which is look inside like cheap motel room,no coffe,no tea machines,no iron. Beds horrible. Walls are thin and you can hear like kids screaming in the morning "wake up everybody". Wi fi..... You can say there is no wi fi at all. Better stay in the city of lloret de mar. We took this hotel,because was thinking its will be quiet,but it is not. So in the city not quiet as well,but at least you are not going to pay 300€ there. And to get to city from here its 20€ by taxi every day. If i could,i would cancel this hotel right away. Also bare in mind, when you will see the buffet downstairs, better to ask how much does it cost, otherwise they will try avoid to answer to your question, and at the end you will get a bill 59€ per person.
"Amazing honeymoon break"
07/03/14 MisssMoscow Sliema
We spent 5 nights of a honeymoon break in Santa Marta in June 2014 and it was simply amazing! The hotel is lovely, we had a room with a sea view and it was worth the money! Guests can order breakfast into their rooms free of charge and this is what we did for our first morning. But from everywhere you get amazing views of the forest and the beach. Hotel is secluded and the beach is amazing - clean, not busy and very relaxed.... just what you need for a break to relax. Food is a bit pricy compare to other places but it's good quality so at least it's worth it. the staff is extremely polite and helpful. The only time we asked for the iron and it was not availble one of the maids just ironed my husband's shirt herself! I would recommend this hotel to everyone who needs a nice break with a loved one or with the family. Definitely coming back!
06/15/14 Elma O
The location is amazing and if you want to get away from everything it is perfect. A couple of negatives: I agree with some comments about the staff and training. They were helpful and not at all rude but they could do with some more training - for example we had to ask about everything, how did the internet work, where was the pool, when was the spa open? Nothing was forthcoming and not what you expect from a 5 star establishment. Also there was either a wedding or party every night so if you are a light sleeper bring earplugs.
