It is one of the worst apartments to stay on holiday, very smelly, sofa beds broken and on top of that they charge you on your credit card charges for cleaning without your approval. They ask guest not to clean while checking out and then charge you next day without checking with guest. Recommend all not to stay here strongly....

Dear Ashish, Thank you for your staying at Santana resort and your comments. One issue you mentioned is sofa bed broken. We have checked the sofa bed in the room you stayed, it is working well. You need to extend it probably. In regard to the cleaning charge of you, you did not do dish wash for all the pan...

We stayed here over the Christmas break and have to say may not be the most modern place but very good value for money and very close to everything. You can walk to Broadbeach, you can walk to the patrolled beach. You also have a tram stop up on the highway, just minutes away. The pool is quite small when...

Our stay at Santana was a very pleasant one. The room was clean, quiet. Swimming pool and spa were great. Location is close to Broadbeach. The service is excellent and the reception staff we found also very welcoming and helpful.

Ideally, I would have given this resort 3.5 stars if possible. Reading past reviews and weighing up our personal experience I think that the owners actually try to use the criticism given to make improvements where needed. My husband booked this place and when I read the reviews I panicked. I actually asked him to cancel and rebook elsewhere. He...

It surprises me! With how spacious it is, and it has all the facilities you need.. We stayed for 5 days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Its just a 2 minutes walk from nearest tram station and 5-7 minutes walk from nearest bus station, with some restaurants and convenient shops available nearby. The receptionist is very helpful too..
