Never stay here
We did not stay here. 1st the driver was rude and late to pick us up and he yelled at us when we told him we had been waiting for more than 20 minutes. When we checked in the staff didn't speak to us properly. They gave us the keys and we had to carry our own bags. The hotel room had a mattress on the floor and there were mosquitoes everywhere. We left within 10 minutes.

Very nice stay, property very well maintained
The hotel is very well maintained, and is very convenient to the beach because the exit from the property goes straight to the beach and the Calamari 'shack'. This hotel does not have rooms directly facing the beach, but was so close that it was fine. Other facilities such as the AC, tv, and wifi (not free 300 rupees for 24 hrs connect time) worked well as well. We took advantage of the free breakfast which was also good. Hotel staff was good. Our room was quite nice, bathroom good, and there is a extra small room with a fridge, sink, small table and tea making accessories. Our room was on the ground floor .. my wife would have preferred one on the 1st floor (ie not ground floor) because that would have had a slightly better view .. esp if it overlooked the pool etc. The hotel staff helped us get a driver for a 'tour' that we wanted for Goa. There were some specific places we wanted to visit and we wanted the driver to also know some english and be a bit of a guide. The driver the hotel found for us (Nitesh, +91 9158912988, 2500 for 1 day of driving)) worked out very well and we used him to drive us back to the airport (1300 rupees).

Good value hotel at the best end of Candolim beach
The Santana hotel has direct access to the beach and is very close to local shops and restaurants. The hotel is located at the point where the big lines of beach chairs finally end and between the Santana and the Taj resorts at the southern end it is much nicer, quieter and far cleaner than further north. The hotel itself is split in to lots of two storey villas with rooms top and bottom. The rooms are quiet simple and some of the furniture is a little old, but everything works and is kept very clean. My only complaint is that the water heater for the shower is rather small. The hotel grounds are very nice and really well looked after. Please note that there is no hotel shuttle to the airport, but the hotel has its own taxi stand outside the entrance and a trip to the airport costs Rs1,400.
