This apartment is in the popular Santana resort in Candolim. It has all you need for basic self catering but who wants to self cater when you are surrounded by good inexpensive restaurants. We'll situated with its own beach shack (Calamari ) and with a swimming pool right outside the door I would recommend this accommodation. We've already booked to go back next year.
The location was very good...out of the gate turn left and there was the beach. Out of the gate turn right and there was the shops and restaurants.
The apartment had everything you could need for your stay including mosquito plug in and mosquito coils...very handy.
The bed was massive and very comfy. As we were there for a month the TV was brilliant for us as we didnt go out every night as there was the Indian equivalent of Sky which showed brilliant films for 24 hours none stop.
The air con was great which was good as you really do need it in those temperatures. There was also a celing fan in the kitchen which were very powerful as well.
The lined and towels were changed weekly and the cleaners came in once a week if needed.
Anything you needed you just called James and as if by magic it appeared.
Nothing is too much trouble for James and he really is a nice guy who will try his best to accommodate your every need.
I would recommend this apartment highly and if I visit Candolim again I would not hesitate in booking this room. It actually is that close to the pool which was very handy for popping back and forth to the room.
We wouldn't usually keep visiting the same hotel but we come back year after year to this place. Have never found anywhere better in Candolim.
The apartment is very clean and has everything you need Large bedroom (comfortable bed) good bathroom,and kitchen with kettle,induction hob,microwave and toaster. also has nice balcony and it is set in beautiful gardens that go down to the beach.
The hotel facilities are also good and you have use of them all.
Any problems you can just phone James and he will be there for you straight away. Very friendly guy
We can't recommend it highly enough

I stayed here for 6 weeks from 27/12/2015 with my wife
We have been going to Mandolin Goa for 6 years, but this is the first time , we have stayed at the Santana Beach
Thanks hotel itself is very good, including all the staff , it has 2 pools but more of that later, the Hotel runs from the main road right down to the beach
The reception people are really very friendly,the otel has a lovely restaurant, but there are many good restaurants in the area when you go out the bottom gate, this takes you to the hotels shack called the Calamira and the beach, this shack can get very busy at the weekends with Indians coming from all over, they have very good music in the afternoon
This brings me to the apartment I stayed in, as I stated we were there for 6 weeks and asked for a ground floor apartment with cooking facilities,
This was taken care of by James, with a nice big bedroom, a toilet/ shower room and a kitchen with all facilities including fridge/ freezer , also a nice quiet veranda
Now what made this special, was its location, looking right on to the swim up bar, this was within 20 steps of leaving the room, and indeed the barmen got used to pouring me a nice cold beer. When I went into the water, absolutely amazing, you could also have food brought to you at the pool, and indeed in your room
The main road with all its nightlife was only 30 metres away and taxis even closer
Overall I would recommend anyone to book these apartments, they are excellent, and James the proprierter was at call any time you require him, but also stayed in the background
