“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

Small hotel well out of Antalya, not necessarily in the best location, but close to the beach (for walking- it was February!). Inside it was modern, light and bright and the room we had was very good. The staff were lovely (particularly the lady on reception who helped with the free wi-fi, and the young man who stayed late and handled the coffee order after dinner!). The food was good, both at dinner and for the following breakfast. My only negative comment is that the station advertised as BBC on the TV was some strange Euronews thing - though it was in English. I don't know as this was part of a package tour and I didn't check the room rates, but I suspect this is good value for money. Having looked at previous reviews I feel like I've stayed at a different hotel....

This hotel was an average hotel for a coach party, lots of people had problems. The heating didn't work, one thin cover on the bed for January it was cold and we could not sleep because we were so cold. Breakfast was average. Coffee tasted like a mix of coffee and hot chocolate. Experience not to be repeated.

Room Tip: Don't bother.

As a member of a Danish group travelling with Travel Service Scandinavia we were brought to this hotel a cool and stormy evening in December 2013. None of us will forget this night.
1. A number of room doors could not be locked
2. The air conditioning could not heat
3. The WiFi didn't work
4. The staff could not help - and apparently the staff did not regard this as a problem
5. Due to the stormy weather, we had to put our luggage on the curtains to keep them from blowing into the room
6. There was no hot water in any of the rooms in the morning
7. The breakfast buffet did not live up to our rather limited expectations.
8. The hotel is - at least for travelling out of season - placed in the middle of nowhere about 30 minutes from the city center.
Conclusion: Don't hesitate to avoid staying here.

Room Tip: It is probably not possible!

We and a number of others stayed there late in the 2013 season and it was a disaster. The food was awful and made me ill for days. There was no heating in the rooms and no hot water. The water was only warm, around 40 Celsius which is the ideal temperature for Legionella. So no showers for us! When I asked at reception the owner (I guess) was simply not interested. On the issue of the cold room, he told us to wrap ourselves in a blanket. With regard to the water temperature, he simply shrugged his shoulders.
Both my wife and I had to sleep fully clothed to try and get warm.
The power went off over breakfast so no coffee and one of our party got stuck in the lift. Again no apology. Most of the bedrooms were off the open main lobby so every word could be heard in the rooms from the people in the lobby/bar area.
The room itself was small and basic with very limited lighting and no plug in the (very worn and frankly disgusting) bath and wash basin. The balcony was not big enough for a chair to sit out. You could stand but two air conditioning units were within inches of you.
Not good.

Tiny balcony that would accommodate two people standing is only able to accommodate one because of two air conditioner units on one side of the balcony wall.
Dining room variety very limited.
Not much to see/do within walking distance

A nice bijou hotel. Helpful staff, clean rooms, nice pool, limited but pleasant menu. Wine list reasonable. Happy to recommend this hotel for couples / families. I'd be happy to stay there again, so it must be reasonable!!

Me and my two friends stayed at the santa marina for 4 nights this week
The hotel location is excellent close to the beach .all the staff are extremely helpful from the reception to the boys in the canteen. Specially Nil the girl at reception and Murad at reception wer extremely helpful in advising us the best places to go to...also gave us late check out too
Highly recommend this hotel as the price we paid was exceptionally brilliant as we were all inclusive as well
Plis note if you are looking a a 5 star this is not for you , the food is basic but adequate ,plis dont expect freshly made ommrlrtes etc
Basically you get what u pay for . In our case with this hotel we got a lot more than what we paid for.
Santa marina a very good experience overalll
