“pretty good and decent hotel located at Candolim beach !!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

The superb reviews on trip advisor made us book this hotel and I would say its a pretty good property for the price that you pay. The hotel is located on the main Calangute-Candolim road and we got a deal from cleartrip for Rs. 1950 a day. I would say this hotel is well worth this much price. The hotel has a the Calangute road at one end and the other ends goes towards the beach. The staff is quite good the rooms are decent. The renovation is going on in the hotel and they redoing 4-6 rooms every year. The rooms which have been renovated are very good and are very clean. The linen, the towels is good and there is a separate kitchen in almost all the room, but no cooking can be done.

An improvement is required in terms of the toiletries that they use !!

Also the hotel has a decent size swimming pool and the breakfast is quite good for the price that you pay for. Also the taxi's are available right at the gate of the hotel and in case you hire self driven car-scooty they have their own parking.

The bathrooms are pretty clean and this is what one looks for when he looks out for budget hotels. AC and the fridge works fine !!

All in all, in case you are looking for a budget hotel, this is one of the best !!

Room Tip: You should opt for the renovated rooms !!

Enough has been said about this resort in all the previous reviews, and I agree with most of the good reviews.

The only point I want to add is about the location.
It's a kilometer further south than what is marked on Google maps.
I spent some time searching, and so writing the review to guide others who might drive using Google maps navigator.

A hidden Paradise in the busy Candolim area with excellent service and cheaper rate than some of the more well known ones.
Would love to go back and stay in the Lovely Santana as soon as possible

Been trying to book this resort for New Year Eve since 2011 but not yet succeeded

Santana is one of my favourite hotels in goa. It has everything going for it. Location is perfect - beach side, candolim is peaceful and away from the crazy tourist areas, many great restaurants around. Added to this is their own restaurant Calamari - which is a beach shack and has amazing seafood and goan food. The rooms are very good, nice clean bathrooms and nice pool as well.

We stayed there for 5 days from June 1st to 6th and it was a pleasant experience. The staff is very courteous and prompt in answering room service calls. The location is fantastic, there's a back gate which takes you directly on to the beach and since its not as crowded as Baga or Calangute, its quite a nice place to sit and relax. All in all a very well maintained, value for money place.

We stayed in March 2014. It was our second stay at Santana and have booked to go back it is so good. The rooms are large and airy and cleaned with fresh towels every day. The room boys are fantastic, very efficient and creative with towels - we had a new design every day! All the staff are very polite and friendly. Breakfasts are the best in Goa. The restaurant is also very good.
