After being here for our first week our apartment was broken into along with 2 others on level 1 whilst we were asleep!!!' Cash , phone and kindle which were on charge were stolen . Hotel management not interested !!! What if we had woken up ??? Would we have been injured??? BEWARE IF U R STAYING AT THIS HOTEL !!! Police informed us that the robbers have had to come in thru reception. Santa Maria where was ur security at this time of the morning ??? Put me off Tenerife and this hotel for life. Perhaps the female hotel manager could benefit from a course in customer relations Collapse

We returned last night from 3 weeks at Santa Maria & had a great holiday. We've been going to Tenerife for years & have always stayed in 4 star hotels before so was anxious but no need! Due to our travel agent not telling us we were in a basement apartment before paying, we paid to move rooms when we arrived. The rooms in the basement are themselves fine, but the location is 2 floors below ground and far too hot. We moved to an airy, spacious apartment on the 2nd floor. Even in August, we found the fans were enough to keep the room cool so the lack of air con wasn't an issue. We had a great holiday for the following reasons: Staff: professional, friendly and extremely helpful. Any issues were sorted quickly, better than other places we have stayed. Cleanliness: everywhere was spotless in the hotel & room cleaned 5 days a week. Definitely cleaner than most 4 stars we have stayed in. Food: we were half board & genuinely enjoyed the food. There were 2/3 days where we didn't think it was great, but I think that happens everywhere. Breakfast is standard- fruit, eggs, pastries, meats etc, plenty of choice. I heard people complaining that the bacon & sausages 'weren't like home', which to me is obvious seeing as we weren't at home. There wasn't much difference at all to the 4 star we stayed in last year. Dinner had 3 meat choices, fish, plenty of salad & veg, pasta dishes, chips, potatoes. We ate really well & my 8 year old ate most things. If you and your children eat varied diets normally then you will enjoy the food. Activities: various things happening for adults & kids during the day such as aqua aerobics, kids master chef etc, all led by friendly animation staff. A few things worth noting: People put towels on sunbeds in the middle of the night. We put towels out when we went to breakfast around 8ish and always got beds. They weren't in the front row around the pool but we always got one row behind that. Pool bar doesn't take cash, it's charged to your room. The website says that the male dress code is long trousers, but when you get there the info is that men can wear 'dress shorts'. However this is not enforced and every night there were plenty of football/casual shorts. I had a problem with the amount of women/teenage girls wearing hot pants to dinner which showed a lot of their bum cheeks so would prefer that to be part of the dress code. We are hoping to go back next year, as this is a very good 3 star. Collapse

Just come back from 2 weeks stay in private let we really enjoy staying here and staff are lovely ( even to us private ones ) you can pay on a debit card at pool bar which is good as not been allowed before . We have stayed here before and my daughter loves frank on reception he always makes an effort to say hello to her . Also Louisa she used to be entertainment but now reception Amy ( my daughter ) was so happy she was still there and always wanted to talk to her and Louisa always gave her a smile nothing to much trouble so a big thank you to her. The 2 entertainment are great always made you smile and got everyone involved . Amy was 8 while there And they sang happy birthday in the bar on a night and gave her a certificate which was lovely . They work so hard everyday I take my hat off to them . Well done guys keep up the good work hopefully see you next year . Hotel is in great location with some nice places to eat esp down at the beach . I do not recommend lotus garden at bottom of hill it was dirty . Now sun beds . This is a funny situation as before you could just put towels out early morning go back to room then breakfast well now your towels get removed unless your sat on them . Cleaners will take them off and pile them in a corner then the life guard does his rounds and does the same was quiet funny to watch Collapse

We arrived late to the hotel but a warm welcome by the girls on the reception, we have just spent a week at these apartments and found it to be excellent, we stayed in room 907 which overlooked the pool and had a good sea view. I have read most of the reviews for here but always take things as i find them in my own personal opinion the hotel is fantastic value for money and the staff are very hard working people. I have read about people saying the staff where rude? it must have been their week off because everybody i came into contact with made me feel very welcome. The room was not one of the refurbs but it was clean , and had everything i needed,there is no air con and it has been very hot ,but i have stayed in a few hotels in this area and guess what? No air con in these as well i do agree that some people may need it ,but this is not a problem for me and we had 2 kids with us at 10 and 11 they also didnt find this a problem. I have read about cockroaches in the hotel yes i did see some( VERY FEW) but not just in the hotel ,it as been in the mid 30s and it is tenerife We stayed bed and breakfast and there is enough to choose from but it is cheap enough to eat out. The dreaded sunbed saga yes it is a problem but the lifeguard does remove towels if they have been left he cannot police the pool at 5 in a morning which i saw people putting towels on then coming back after dinner and then being shocked because they had been removed it states that this will happen the lad is doing is job. The animation team are superb very funny young lad and all of them very hard working. I found the hotel very good and all the staff very friendly and helpful it was very full but i personally felt very welcomed by everyone. So if its 5 star you want then its not the place for you please remember they have 100s of people staying so they are working hard to keep everybody happy not always easy. I would stay here again because i love the area and i found in my opinion that this place as a real team effort going on. Thanks for a great holiday ¡ hasta luego amigos! Collapse

We stayed here for a week during July. while it was a fantastic location with only a 20 min taxi ride from the airport, plenty shops, bars and eateries in the vicinity , friendly staff, good wifi connection in the lobby area and having no problems getting a bed by the pool... we truly struggled with the no-aircon situation. we used the fans provided in the rooms but it was still unbearable during the night- if the hotel invested in aircon then id definitely return as I couldn't fault it otherwise.
