Positive Reviews

Proud to work here.

The staff work extremely hard and are very guest centred. They are very proud of where they work and endeavour to keep the grounds very well maintained, in addition the housekeeping team clean the rooms to a high standard. The entertainment team arrange a wide range of activities.

Huge variety of food.

Guests have felt spoilt by all of the food choices on offer. As well as featuring multiple dining venues, each restaurant also offers a rich menu. Food ingredients are of a high quality and the food is cooked incredibly well.

Range of facilities.

There are two adult swimming pools, one of which is quieter than the other and is known as the relaxation pool. The other pool is livelier and often has music playing. The pool areas are kept very clean and have lots of sun loungers. The beach is beautiful and there is also a beach bar for guests. Treatments at the spa do cost extra, but have received very positive feedback.

Negative Reviews

Building work.

At present there is a lot of building work going on in the immediate vicinity. Some noise has been experienced, but guests have acknowledged that this is outside of the hotel’s control.

Intermittent Wi-Fi signal.

The Wi-Fi connectivity is not very reliable which has been a source of frustration for some guests.

Mixed feelings about the local resort centre.

Guests who have decided to explore the local area have not always enjoyed visiting Santa Maria. The locals will often approach you and either try to sell you something or ask you to visit their establishment. Many people have found this quite overwhelming.
