  • 8.0.Very Good

    Clean and cosy

    We required a room as a stop over between flights. While we very pleased with the room we found that it was very small. We wouldn’t want to stay there longer than one night. If we had a longer stay we surely would have upgraded. However the bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean and cosy. WIFI wasn’t very good but worked very well in the lobby. The staff were very hospitable and accommodating. Would I book a room in future? Definitely Yes but A larger one next time.

    Undeserved 4 star rating for Santana hotel

    Arrived a bit early and placed my possessions in storage room and enjoyed the pool upstairs until check in time. Wouldn’t have known I could do that if didn’t hear other early arrivals being offered that opportunity. When I checked into my room found the television was difficult to find an English speaking news channel. The man sent up explained that since they changed the television service they now have about 100 channels, but none come in clearly. The breakfast meal was terrible, powdered eggs, cold potatoes. The drinks in the bar were very expensive literally 3x what I paid for the same drink at my hotel the night before on Comino island.

  • 6.0.Good

    The location is nice and the breakfast is really good. Rooms are nice but it need some maintenance I had a big issue in checking in. First they gave me a room in the ground floor which is very noisy and very slow internet. I asked to change it, the receptionist gave 2 options that are not good and not what I paid for. I asked her to call the deputy manager who is a real gentleman and fixed this issue by giving me a good room based on my booking.

  • 6.0.Good

    Nice property and very clean with a goodbreakfast. My issue was with the noise, and not the construction noise but the constant bellowing in the hallways. Housekeeping was especially bad. There is no sound insulation and the sounds just echoes. It was awful! Also tnestaff. I complained about my room on day 1 and was toldthere would be something else “tomorrow”. I had an excursion and afterwards asked about a room change and was told I should have come to the desk midday.....what kind of customer service is that? I ended up changing to one on the 3rd floor abd even with the construction noise it was far superiorto where I had been. I was there for 10 nights also and there coyldn’gt care less about mysaisfaction. Another thing is thise horrid plastic chairs that people were dragging all over tne place. It is really a shame be ause it is a nice place witha de ent location. A little effort would have made a big difference.
