I stayed at this resort with my wife on our honeymoon, July 2011. Everything about the hotel is good for the money paid there are a few negatives though The breakfast is repetitive and the staff is a bit complacent. The positives are the location, large rooms although with outdated equipment.
all in all a value for money place.

Room Tip: Rooms adjacent to the pool are advisable

We looked around this hotel last year while staying in Baga. We read all the reviews and talked to a friend who had stayed there and so booked our first visit to this hotel and the resort of Candolim. (Previously stayed in Arpora and Baga).

We agree with all the positive comments about the location, gardens, facilities and the rooms in this beautiful hotel. However what made this hotel exceptional for us was the excellent friendly staff, from the gardeners to the restaurant and bar staff. Even when we were stressed and irritable due to being delayed and tired they were patient, friendly and hospitable.

We will definitely be booking to stay here again.

I booked at Santana based on the great reviews, and it lived up to expectations! Staff were funny and very friendly, and I could see that they developed great relationships with some of the longer staying visitors there, which was great. They had a library with books and magazines for reading and for the beach, which was greatly appreciated (and many in Finnish :) ). The rooms were very large and very clean, and bed was comfortable. Cleaner was extremely friendly as well. Breakfast was great, with lots of options to choose from and good coffee and juice :) Option to pay if you want different breakfast (e.g. bacon and sausage). Great music playing for breakfast as well which led to the start of a relaxing morning. 2 minute walk to the beach, a more secluded part of the beach so was able to relax and swim without too many people around. The Calamari restaurant also serves up very good food. Shops are a few minutes away from the beach if you need a chemist, drinks, etc. Resort was beautifully maintained, with gardens and places to sit and relax. Bar had good drinks, and were very reasonably priced (120 taxes included for gin and tonic). Seafood at dinner was also excellent. Highly recommend Santana for an easygoing, relaxed stay in Goa at a good price in good company with very good access to a quiet part of the northern Goan beaches!

What a lovely hotel this is! The location is excellent just a short stroll through the well maintained the grounds of the hotel and you are on the beach.
The gardens are stunning, with a huge variety of plants constantly maintained by talented and dedicated gardeners.
The rooms are spacious and clean the housekeeping standards were excellent.
The staff were very friendly and eager to help with any issues that arose.
Breakfast was fine juice,cereals,eggs toast etc.
The pool was great to relax and cool off in.Just one bug bear to do with the pool area that is with people saving sunbeds by placing their towels on them ! Went to pool one day just 3 people in pool but all sunbeds reserved!How annoying,even saw one lady reserve her sunbed, go for breakfast,then went shopping! How rude.
All in all a superb place to stay in Goa.Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony with a view
