We spent a week in a rented apartment in this Aparthotel. Good position for restaurants, bars and beaches. Clean hotel with excellent buffet breakfast. Good swimming pools but people do reserve sunbeds, although we were always able to find a couple of sunbeds when we needed. Smaller pool is heated. Generally the pools were not too busy. Two additional small pools available for young children. the sundeck on top of the two level rooms is quiet if you want to get away from the busier pool area. Small shops within the hotel and visiting stalls, with jewellery, etc., on site most days/evenings. Also hairdresser and massage treatments available within the hotel. Laudry facilities on site. Also wifi area by main Reception which proved very popular. Some entertainment provided in hotel in the evening in the downstairs bar but not greatly attended. Short, steep slope or steps up to up to hotel entrance from the road. We enjoyed our secpnd stay at this Aparthotel.

Room Tip: The rooms in the block opposite the main hotel do not appear to have much sun in the winter.

Just got back from a great holiday to Tenerife with family. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment at Santa Maria. The hotel is very clean and in a great location. The staff were friendly and helpful.
On the rules board next to the pool it advertises that reserving sunbeds is prohibited, yet when we got to the pool at 9am there were no bed available... there were so many beds with towels on, but no sign of anyone to occupy them. When we did finally find 3 beds between 6 of us, the sunbeds next to us had towels on them, but no-one turned up until 2pm to use them. The pool staff need to stick to their own rules and remove any towels from beds that haven't been occupied for over an hour. They could also do with supplying more parasols as there are nowhere near enough.

Quality of food excellent. Take no notice of unfavourable reviews this hotel is fantastic for the money.

We've just returned from Tenerife and hadnt stayed at Santa Maria before but was pleasantly surprised,location is fab,always sunbeds available although this could be a problem in the summer months if it's busy...we had a studio room on the 7th floor where we had a private terrace which was great for sunbathing on in private,fab views aswell.Very clean inside,we went bed and breakfast and although my partner wasn't particularly happy with the selections I was happy with pancakes,fruit and toast.The only gripe I had was the lady on reception was so miserable,she basically checked us in,no hello,welcome or anything,she didn't tell us breakfast times,check out times or any other info but we just got on with it,,,overall a very good stay and would definitely return to Santa Maria

went to santa maria early march very disappointed,the only good thing about this hotel was the location, if you wanted a sun bed you had to be up at 7.00, all the elderly there got all the sunbeds ,we are middle aged and we felt like teen-ages, the pool is on the small side for the amount of apartments ,the pool bar is a rip off for drinks charging 3.30 euros for a pint when you can get one next door for 1.00 euro .we were in an owners direct apartment overlooking the car park the balcony did not get any sun at all and if you sat on it to have a meal or a drink everyone walking along the public walkway could see you ,no privacy what's so ever. After spending 6 days in a damp smelling bedroom we packed up and went to Laguna 1 where we usually go and rescued what was left of our holiday
