“Perfect holiday hotel”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

This small hotel is on the beach. The perfect place to stay for a relaxing holiday. No nightclubs nearby, just the hotel bar and one other. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the food amazing, just perfect.

Room Tip: I stayed in an end room on the 2nd floor overlooking the beach. I believe all the rooms are on the f...

The Hotel Santandria is unique it is so special in so many ways, the hotel has it's own character set in a stunning cove it is so beautiful. It can be many things to many people it must be a joy to experience the different seasons it's like a picture of peace and tranquility it is magical. The welcome at the hotel was great Gabriel, Paul, Tony, and staff are the most kind, genuine, people you will ever come across and so cheerful and hard working. The town of Ciutudella was a joy to visit and the people where so friendly. I had the most wonderful 2 week holiday the guests were exceptional, the laughter and the atmosphere was contagious.

This hotel was such a little gem. It does not have the hustle and bustle of the larger facilities around the island but what it lacks in size it makes up for in hospitality and location. The beach is literally on your doorstep and after 2 cracking storms this week that could have been very true. We loved the hotel it was clean, tidy with very friendly staff who always went the extra mile. The 2 brothers worked so hard to cater to all their customers needs sometimes things went a little awry but people just shrugged and smiled. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a chill out holiday with no hassle in a great location. There was always 3 choices of starter, main and dessert on the menu for half board so plenty to choose from. Several bars and restaurants around if you wanted a change but if like us you just wanted a paella they happily put the cost already paid towards it .

Just returned from a wonderful week at the Santandria Beach Hotel in the tiny, quiet cove of Santandria.
If you want a lively venue and opportunity to easily visit the island on public transport, this is not the place for you. If you want a place to chill out, generally potter about and be spoiled then we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.
Having booked online with Thomsons their website would not allow us to upgrade our room, however on arrival we were offered an upgrade and consequently had a lovely large room with terrace, which included 2 sunbeds and an excellent view over the cove.
Amongst the delights were:
a) the family of ducks who roamed the beach for the first time this season. They never failed to make people smile.
b) the two other local restaurants, both of which served excellent food at a reasonable price.
We would recommend booking B & B, enabling the choice of eating in the hotel restaurant or beach cafe bar, the local restaurants or hopping on the local bus to the town of Ciutadella (10 mins) or Calan Bosh (20 mins) to enjoy one of the many restaurants around the harbour.
c) the hotel, which although very laid-back was brilliant.
d) Gabriel & Paul who couldn't do enough to make our stay everything we wished.

We really hope that we are able to return before too long.

Room Tip: Rooms on floors 1 & 2 have terraces. Other have small balconies. All have views over the sea or...

We spent the last 2 nights of my 60th birthday celebration week in Menorca at this hotel. We booked after arriving on the island. The hotel is literally a couple of steps from the sand. It is a simple hotel with very good staff. We were shown a couple of room types and chose the full sea view room on the 3rd floor. For the same price we could have had a terrace room with sun loungers, but we thought you had little privacy as it was completely overlooked. It was so nice to be given the option. We stayed half board as the evening meal was served, rather than the buffet style you usually get these days. The standard of food was very good, and with the option of having lunch or dinner would be a bonus for a longer stay. Everywhere was very clean and a quiet relaxing air prevailed. We had an early flight and it was not an issue for us to have breakfast at 8am, as the breakfast service normally started at 8.30am.
To summarise, a simple well run family hotel that is great value for money. We would stay again and recommend to those who want a quiet beach holiday.

Room Tip: A full sea view room is well worth the small additional cost.

We, a group of five ladies, had a wonderful week at the Santandria Beach Hotel. The food, hospitality, location was excellent with brothers Gabriel and Paul managing and delivering a professional and friendly first class service, certainly nothing was a problem to them. We would certainly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a relaxing laid back holiday. We hope to return.

Room Tip: We believe all rooms are similar and have a sea view.
