“A Welcome Respite”
Reviewed 19 September 2006

The Hotel Minerva was an overall good experience. One room was on the front of the hotel and the other, smaller room was on the back without much of a view. However, we spent most of our time on the terrace where we relaxed and ate most of our meals. The staff was polite and attentive. My companions and I spent a pleasant weekend there. When we left the hotel, much to our surprise, we were given a cake!!

  • Liked — The friendly staff and the hotel terrace
  • Disliked — The size of the room at the back of the hotel overlooking construction.
  • Tips/Secrets — We really liked the staff and they could tell it.

My sister in law and myself stayed at the hotel minerva in july for 4 nights. First we were not given the room with a balcony that we booked. The night front desk attendant was mean, mean, mean. She treated us like we were children (although we are in our late thirties and mid forties). I caught her sleeping in pajamas in a seperate room when i came down for an extra pillow and she told me it was impossible to get another pillow. this was because she was still half asleep and was upset that i, the customer, had awaken her, the night duty attendant! All she kept saying was "what time is it", uhh--what difference does it make, we are 6 hours behind your schedule off a plane from the US and who cares just get me the d... pillow. Then the next night she yelled and screamed at us when we arrived late at the hotel. she also locked another customer out while we were there. This is not a hostel but a regular hotel, yet it runs like a house hold. The elevators only worked half the time we were there. The maid service was just fine. The walls are thin however and you can hear your neighbors in their bathroom--yuck! The room was a teeny tiny square with construction out the window every morning at 8:00. I was showing my sis in law italy for the first time and this was the first impression for her. Trust me when i tell you, if you dont want big brother hanging over your head while traveling then dont book here.

We been travelling all around Europe and never experience a very friendly and proffesional treatment. We stayed at this hotel in high season and all hotels around are fully book and EXPENSIVE! At MINERVA HOTEL offered us their last rooms...YES rooms...because were looking for a family/triple room but they dont have available so we got 1 double room and 1 single room for a price of 1 family room! Inclusive all inclusve except the garage but it worth to pay 10euro/day. All staff of this hotel eas very helpful and friendly.

Next time we travel in Santa Margarita we gonna book a room with balcony and sea view of couse at MINERVA HOTEL!
