    Great family holiday,go during UK school holiday

    This hotel is made by the staff, they are awesome and all deserve a pay rise. We had some hick ups with the room and the misunderstanding about what’s included in the Ultra All Inclusive upgrade. But everything was sorted promptly by the amazing staff even the general manger knew who we was and come to check we’re happy. Iftihis in a la cart restaurant was amazing and really good with our 2 year old girl. Staveros was amazing and makes the best cocktails(attention to detail) Anna at Guest relations was very friendly and kind and Christina at check in was super helpful and kind. It has to be said that the Ultra Inclusive is still only partially inclusive but it’s WELL WORTH the money!!!!! The only unpleasant we had was with the other guests! But the hotel can’t help that their in the business of filling rooms and large groups of people from the old eastern block do just that!!! It must be a cultural thing but we found them very very rude and unfriendly, a pair of old couples nearly push my daughter down the stairs cause they was in a hurry and didn’t even say sorry. They never say hello or smile and my little girl desperately tried to play with the other kids but they wasn’t interested instead they pushed her over. Maybe we went wrong time of year for guest from UK(early June). I just want to confirm we had an amazing holiday and would go again and I’m only mentioning it so guest can make an informed decision. We will miss Santa Marina, until next 😀
