We had a really enjoyable week's stay at Santa Barbara. Clean, spacious and friendly.
Staff cos not be more friendly. We had a 1 bed appartment (sleeps 4). Comfortable size and so clean. Refurbished rooms are extremely comfortable. Air con works week. Kitchen is fully furnished and all equipment provided and more. Balcony overlooked a terrace bar and had a superb sea view.
Pool was great and the food was of a good standard from both restaurants.
Plenty of entertainment for young families. 3 places for evening drinks. Good range of entertainment on the evening.
Very close proximity to sea, although nearest sandy beach is 25 minutes walk away east, towards Los Abrigos.
Sun beds by the pool are at a premium - be down by 8:00am to get a bed of choice. Life guards do not reinforce the hotel policy of use it or lose it for sun beds.
We were invited to a complementary breakfast (to discuss membership of their club) but representatives aren't pushy. A polite "not for me" would suffice - for some, the club would work very well.
Plenty to see and do in the local area. San Blas is the nearest Centre for shops and bars/ eateries. Cheap and lots of entertainment.
Take the coastal walk to Los Abrigos (30 minutes walk) and easy at Ocean Dream for one of the best meals in the area (imho).

Stayed: August 2014, travelled as a couple

This hotel would have received 5 stars however the WiFi is very patchy - please don't bother paying for it in your room. Everything meets expectations nicely. The rooms on the east side are near to the sewers which can be slightly whiffy at times.

Room Tip: Don't get one on the east side. Sewers are there.

Only one down fall if your not down at the pool by 9.00am you got no chance of getting a sun bed we had a great holiday.

Room Tip: try to get one pool facing then you will get the sun most of the day on the balcony.

We are sorry if you had difficulty with securing a sun lounger, unfortunately there is a limited number of beds available and although our team is monitoring the 'reserving' of the beds, it is not always possible for all guests to be able to enjoy them. We hope that you had an otherwise pleasant stay, however, and that you may visit us again in the future.

Visited just over 2 weeks ago, after arriving late at night we had a bell boy who carried our case down to our villa and reception was very helpful, we were delighted that we had been given the small villa just around from the pool with an excellent balcony full of sun beds. The pool was so nice and had a great atmosphere! The staff members were very friendly especially Pablo. Also calling reception for help with the docking station they were quick to send us down a technician who helped resolve our problem. Cleaners also did a good job of cleaning our villa. Overall we had a great holiday and the hotel exceeded our expectations :)

Room Tip: After selecting a studio room we were given a villa with a kind size bed.
