6/10 Good

Basic but worth the money
This more or less matched the return for the amount paid for. 3 star experience at best. It did the trick, but wasn't an exceptionally pleasing experience.

2/10 Poor

we did not stay at this hotel you need to know. When we arrived we were told they did not have a room for us and sent us to the el Greco hotel instead, manager of the santa marina was very argumentative and unprofessional and also argued with another couple from Australia, you should stop dealing with this hotel, you will have many unsatisfied customers, the el Greco hotel was good by the way

Hôtel tout proche de la marina et de la plage. Ne stationnez pas votre véhicule au parking payant en bas de l'hôtel, parking sur un terrain vague à quelques minutes. Buffet copieux pour le dîner comme pour le petit-déjeuner. Piscine très peu utilisée.

4/10 Fair

Service of the staff in this hotel was not so good at all. They also denied to offer free breakfast even though it was included in the room rate (later this was compensated by Excellent reclamation management from!). Rooms were also very noisy due to construction work in the city center. Safe in the room cost 2 euro extra per day. Air condition was not very good. We also had to complain to get separate beds instead of one double even though this was also promised already in the reservation. On the other hand location of the hotel was excellent. Also free wifi connection worked really well for basic surfing (e-mails, news etc).
