“Excellent value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed at Santa Maria last week. The apartment we stayed in was immaculate and lots of space with a fridge, toaster, hob, kettle and microwave. The rm was cleaned if u put a notice on the door requesting it to b cleaned. Breakfast was plentiful, loads of choice, hot and cold and plenty of drinks. Food was constantly being refilled. Free wifi in reception. Only one negative, Swimming pool 2 small for size of hotel and not enough sunbeds for amount of people and everyone puts towels on them by 6.30 in the morning, annoying!!! Staff very friendly and helpful.

Just got back from a stay at this hotel (this is an honest review of our stay)
Firstly could not fault the accomadation
2nd we was on bed and breakfast food and choice excellent
3rd cleaning of room 5star
4th this is the only criticism we have is the reception desk should be a little customer friendly.We had no problem we checking until we asked to higher a safe and was told sternly by an elderly lady come back in an hour which all she had to do was take my money and issue us with instructions .
Would we yes there was notices all over the hotel about saving sun beds as our room over looked the pool area from about 7ish all you could here was sun beds being moved and towels put on sun beds whilst we spent a day around the pool we did notice the towels put out earlier with no one in sight till later in the day some times 6 hours later

First for the good points,

1. The rooms: were average but were all you'd need on a sun holiday.
2. Breakfast buffet was very good and you could eat all you wanted for two and a half hours.
3. The pool: The pool was very nice. The staff at the pool bar were extremely pleasant- particularly this one man who was probably a good bit over 50. He had a very friendly demeanour and was a lovely server- (if anyone from the hotel management reads this he was working on 08/07/2014 at 2 in the afternoon at the pool bar)

Now for the not so good.
1. Cash is king at this hotel- Everything from use of the safe to the parking to the tennis court to the towel rental had to be paid for in advance and in CASH. Had to pay about 40 euro to use the safe for two weeks and the safe broke a few times or ran out of battery during our stay.
2. Parking is NOT free - we rented a car because we thought we could park it at the hotel without additional cost.
3. Maintenance Issues: Tennis court in very poor repair-broken net, slippery court. Fridge shelf broke twice spilling wine and beer everywhere
4. Inadequate Oven: The oven took almost an hour to cook a thin-based pizza
5. Lack of night-time entertainment: tried to attend a quiz on one of our calmer nights scheduled for 9pm and it simply didnt happen.
and last but not least 6. TERRRIBLE WIFI!!!!!!!! REALLY REALLY TERRIBLE. Free wifi is extremely limited in two ways. Firstly, to a tiny area of the hotel and secondly BY SPEED. You can do virtually nothing on the free wifi there- Couldnt look up directions with google maps for example.

Stayed here from 19th may to 9th june, we had 3 weeks just chilling out and relaxing, stayed half board and enjoyed every minute of it. The hotel is clean with friendly staff the loation is probably the best you could ask for, shops and bars all in easy reach and the food is very good, better than the H10 at Los Christianos and thats a 4 star. We upgraded to a sea view had a great balcony, spent most of our time on it, had the sun all day, my brother was in costa adeje at the same time but stayed at the 4 star bahia princess ( think thats how its spelt) they had no balcony view the tv was rubbish it cost twice as much and the food wasn't that good, he admits he made a mistake. The Santa Maria is good hotel, you only get what you pay for, but here you do get a bit more, good pools, good food, good staff, good location good choice, on the down side, a slope up to the hotel, and be careful when booking the promo studio rooms, they have no view, this hotel does not have air conditioning so it can a bit sticky, we put the ceiling fan on and opened the balcony door. Hope to be going back again in September for our 3rd visit, it's all what you want from a holiday

Room Tip: Go for a room 3rd floor or higher

My partner i and 2 17year old boys stayed at this hotel from June 25th to 30th 2014.
The hotel was always lovely and clean and is in a great position within the resort,it has quite an incline leading from main road to the entrance of the hotel which could prove difficult for those with walking difficulties.
Both our rooms were very spacious and kept clean by the maids except on Sunday and Thursday when there is no maid service.
The" BUT" for me was not only the disappointing food on offer but the length of time it took to replenish ,which meant you either waited a while or went without also the orange juice was like coloured water.
As i said could'nt fault the cleanliness and would probably stay again but on a room only basis,as there are plenty of nice places to eat nearby.

Just arrived home after a weeks stay with my boyfriend. Very impressed with santa maria. as others have said, great location for supermarkets, the beach, bars and restaurants, and a few minutes walk from the nearest bus stop to Siam water park. . area is very touristy, but the nearby beaches are lovely. Very impressed with the room, was more of an apartment with sink, microwave, mini-hob, kettle and fridge with freezer draw and ice tray. Staff were for the most part very pleasant. we stayed half board,the food was very good, with quite a bit of variety. The food that was supposed to be cold was very nice, but my main issue is that the food that was supposed to be hot was cold! all meals are served buffet style, and left out under some kind of heating lamp i think, but it cooled down within a few minutes, so the majority of it was lukewarm, which really wasn't great. As others have also said, pretty rubbish fans are the only method of cooling down, though combined with leaving the balcony door open normally was sufficient. Everything was very clean- the rooms, the pool, the hotel in general. A very good 3-star.

Room Tip: ASk for pool view- other side looks over onto the street, which can be a tad noisy

We travel to The Santa Maria on Friday June 6th 2014 and we had arranged private apartments on this complex from Denise Hammond.We did not arrive till late evening and we were met by Denise and shown to our apartments of which we had Three rooms 804 805 1012
these apartments were like been at home with all the personal touchs it made our stay more pleasurable.
The Santa Maria its self was superb for location and offered great facilities the pool bar was
very reasonable with its prices both for food and drink and as we were self catering of which we wanted for nothing in the rooms from full cooking facilitesLarge Oven and Hob with microwave large fridge freezer
toasters taosty making machine washing machine fully air conditioned and free safety deposit box in room wgat more could you ask for, however there is ample places to eat and drink.Must reccomend the Indian below the complex Ghandis superb food and the bar next to it the Place2 Be Hosts paul and his wife are most accomodation and its only $1.50 a pint.

Room Tip: all rooms have there good point other than rooms on low ground which face a wall
