      Regular visitor here. Always a good experience. The restaurant has been revamped and the menu is now very good and not the usual mass produced hotel food. Highly recommend The Santana

    • 6,0.Good

      After arrival , check in was very fast. Reception were helpful. Room was on a good level however i was disappointed with the room. It hadn't been used in a while , broken bathroom door , shower water everywhere , no signal on TV and WIFI was EXTREMELY BAD ... had to keep reconnecting every 2-3 mins. Manager was called to the room and had the TV fixed , so that was good but the wifi situation was very disappointing. The bed was very comfortable however and had a peaceful sleep !! ... I would come back again however I would make requests
