anton last resort

25 April 2015

We stayed in an apartment in the anton blue sea resort, in short it was awful!! if your reading this don't do it. our room looked out onto the street it was very noisy, the apartment itself was in...

My husband and I recently returned from a 2 week holiday staying at this hotel. We had a really pleasant time however felt probably 10 days would've sufficed. The hotel is 3 star which is fine but felt it was really tired and a bit dated. A Samsung flatscreen telly doesn't make it modern. I must add, British channels was a bonus. The bathroom was adequate, shower over the bath with one of those horrendous plastic curtains, can't stand them, just hung there looking like something from " Bates Motel " absolutely gross. I'll let this one go though as the shower pressure was great. If you do decide to stay here be prepared or noise, flushing toilets, showers, noisy furniture, banging doors ( not the guests fault ) I can only assume very thin walls etc. Pool area is lovely, not always peaceful as quite a bit of repair was going on in some of the rooms, it sounded as if floor tiles were being pulled up. We had no notification this type of work was being carried out. We just got use to it in the end. We opted for breakfast and evening meal, food was good however did start to get a bit repetitive, gobsmacked we had to pay for water at evening meal, teas coffee etc free with your breakfast. Dining area a bit lack lustre, tired, old, however I am speaking about 3 star therefore quite adequate. It would've been nice if the dining room had a bit more organisation re: table allocation. One morning I saw a family with 2 children sitting round a table for 2 whilst one young couple were sitting at a table for 4 ! I must point out however this was a particular busy morning. Housekeeping is 5 days a week, as Thursday and Sunday are days off, clean towels and sheets provided on the other 5. The hotel doesn't provide sunbed towels, either bring your own or you can buy them cheap enough at any of the shops. If your after a nice week, not too expensive, no fancy stuff, not far from the variety of bars and shops, " Santa Maria " fits the bill.

Blue Sea Santa Maria Apartments

20 April 2015

Booked 10 nights for my daughter son-n-law and baby grandaughter what a mistake, the room was dirty with spiders running around management were not to be found and their room and fridge was emptied...

Stayed here with my husband early feb this year. Location was good, close to the beach and bars, up on a steep hill, which didn't bother us but may bother others. Hotel was ok, quite dated but nice and clean. Food was average, glad we didn't go all inclusive though. Not much choice. Pool area was nice, quite small though. Full of over 65s, we were by far the youngest there, not that we cared, I just think its a peaceful hotel for older couples. Think most the apartments must be private. All in all it was a nice little break but probably wouldn't go back there.

Writing this review is sending shivers down my spine - the thought of being there makes me feel ill. I arrived on 02 Apr 2015 at 17:00 and waited for 2 hours as so many people were checking in. They...

My wife and I arrived on the 7th April for two weeks with three children (aged 8yrs, 5yrs and 8 months). The hotel was clean, presentable and very family orientated. The two bedroom apartment was ideal for a family of 5 (although we initially chose a one bedroom apartment that was quoted as sleeping 5 on the website - this proved to be too cramped). The apartment was clean and had a small kitchenette, which was ideal for preparing our youngest's bottles, etc. The view was superb overlooking mountains on the one hand and the beach on the other. Over the years we've visited the island several times (as our family has grown) but the hotel staff on this trip were the most caring and attentive we've come across. They absolutely bent over backwards to make our stay that extra bit special. We've just walked in from the airport and the first thing we wanted to do was leave a glowing review to ensure other families benefit from a truly first rate service / experience (at an affordable price).

Reception staff lovely and very helpful

13 April 2015

The reception staff were amazing (Gabrielle, Marion, anouk). Thanks guys we had a great time and so glad we met you, lovely and very helpful people! X The hotel itself was alright, kinda what you pay...

We arrived for Easter Holidays, myself, my husband, 13 year old boy and parents in 60's. Our room was lovely, very big and spacious with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms which was brilliant. We were just above the bar "Amanda's" overlooking some private apartments, you could JUST see a glimmer of the sea. We had a very large balcony that went right round the large hotel room but didn't really have the sun at any time. The breakfasts were poor, beans were awful, coffee was ok, but nothing was ever hot. The coffee and juice was ok. The pool area was very clean and nice, however not at all child friendly, you wasn't allowed to take any inflatables or balls into the pool, which I found rather strange as this was sold as a "family hotel". Unfortunately the same music played day in day out. The hotel had two pool tables but were not in a very good location, with people sunbathing right next to them, also they had a table tennis table which was terrible, not even a suitable net. Needless to say as our son could not play pool, table tennis or even go into the pool with a ball or inflatables he found the hotel extremely boring. The location of the hotel was brilliant just around the corner from one of the best bars on the island "The Sun Inn", it was brilliant in here, lovely friendly staff, amazing food and a brilliant atmosphere. All in all, I wouldn't visit Santa Maria again, I would stay more near to Fanabe that is more family friendly.
