The hotel itself is ok. The room was spacious and clean, the pool was nice but unfortunately the food was inedible most nights and you have to guess what is being served as nothing is indicated as to what it is. Finally the staff are the rudest people I have ever met.

Upon arrival the 2 bedroom apartment booked was unavailable and having 2 girls of 14 and 20 were advised they had allocated 2 x studios at either end of the floor. This was not acceptable to which we were given a 1 bedroom apartment although we were made to feel we were wrong to insist on having an apartment in which we could holiday together. They advised we could move rooms after 3 days but when the holiday was only a 7 day break it was not worth wasting our time. Having stayed in many 3* hotels we were anticipating a reasonable standard of food and choice in the restaurant. However all aspects of dining in this hotel was disappointing: tables were often not clean and during meals the staff rarely removed empty plates and cutlery. Staff were not welcoming or helpful. The choice of hot food was extremely poor, usually only 3 to 4 choices for which most appeared numerous times during the week. Food was often cold and during many nights once a dish had gone it was not replaced. The breakfast was simply the worst we have experienced in any 3* hotel.

The complex itself was good. The sun terrace was clean with plenty of sunbeds and the roof terrace was a welcome sun trap away from the breeze.

Hotel room allocated was not a sea view as paid for and had no sun at all on balcony so, after discussion with Hotel we were moved the next day, not ideal position as we had requested a high floor with afternoon evening sun. Breakfast Ok did not have half board, entertainment average, position of Hotel near to all eateries not far from a good beach. Studio was a bit dated but everything worked; kettle, toaster, microwave if required.

I think the rooms are great, all you need in them. Also the food, was great something for everyone. Have been in a few hotels same area and they don't beat the food there. I'm fussy and even Ii ate there every night and enjoyed. The pool area and sunbeds are also good though I like the beach which was very near. The bar and entertainment was good too, spent a couple of nights there before going out. Loved shopping in the shops all around it and inside it 2 lit shops. The maids are in everyday cleaning and tidying changin towels. All in all was a great stay would definitely go back. Thank you for having me.

We went for Xmas and Xmas eve Santa arrived on a camel and came around the pool and gave every child a present which was really fabulous and a great touch for the kids. Lovely clean hotel, we had an economy room though which was below ground and had we known wouldn't of booked it. Food was ok, breakfast wasn't restocked quickly enough but wasn't a problem. For the price of the upgrade though it was silly not to have the food included even though we know the area we knew we would be eating out mostly. For space I'd definitely opt for the one bed apartment and not studio. We would definitely go back as long as we had a sea/pool view. Great overall holiday. Very impressed for a 3 star.

We had booked a studio with a sea view, however on arrival (Saturday) they advised us that the sea view rooms were over booked and so gave us a room with a pool view. The room was fine, however was not what we had booked and so they offered us the option to move to a sea view room on Monday or other compensation we would find acceptable. We chose to move on the Monday and were put in a lovely apartment on the fifth floor which ticked all the boxes. Being an apartment there were many doors and windows which allowed good air flow which is required as the rooms do not have air conditioning. We only booked breakfast as there are many places to eat. Breakfast choice is good but the same every day. Staff were very helpful and friendly and the whole resort including the accommodation was exceptionally clean. Something to bare in mind is that the studio's only have the entrance door to the room and the balcony and so when hot the only way to cool the room is to open the room door which if you are in a corridor does not give much rest bite. Another point is that the particular studio had a small wall at the bottom of the beds which meant that we could not push the twins together which may or may not be important to the occupier. We will definitely book the Santa Maria again, great location and overall a very good holiday.

The apartments are in need of a desperate update, the paintwork and just the general upkeep. I had a problem on the day before I was leaving where the apartment above was leaking water into my room, having reported it to the desk on Saturday a.m still on Sunday it was still leaking big style and my electricity to the bottom sockets had fused. The desk were at odds what to do, its a shame really. The breakfast and evening meal do need a revamp, just too many guests to cater for not much choice. We ate out 5 nights because of the choice available.

Good: the location is ideal, not far from the bars and restaurants, and also not far if you want it quiet. Reception desk employee was excellent. Safe was nice and big. Wifi is free in the reception area. Maintenance was very good, toilet was broke when we arrived, reported it and was fixed within 5 minutes.

Average: food in the evening was just okay nothing more, found something to eat, but ate out every night on the second week. No air conditioning, but had a fan provided which was okay.

Bad: pool and surrounding area was smaller than it looked in the photos. Nowhere near enough sunbeds and ignorant people leaving towels on them and not using them all day spoilt the atmosphere.

Great hotel, had a great apartment pool side. 067 was a great room, lots of space for 3 people, it was only a studio but plenty of room for us all. Rooms were cleaned daily and beds made, fresh towels every day, we had the sun on the apartment all afternoon which I love. Breakfast was ok, standard continental, had it few times in hotel but went out pretty much of the time as it's so cheap. Definitely family friendly, we went with a 5 yr old and he had a great time. Staff were very helpful and friendly, would recommend the Santa Maria, it's a great base in Costa Adeje, lots of bars and restaurants around, b act is only 2 minute walk, also you can use the pool at La Pinta which is just across the road, we used this a lot as it's basically on the beach. All in all great place.

Hotel is clean and rooms are nice size. Only stayed b and b, food good, something for everyone. Pool area is a nice size, never had problem getting sun lounger. Good mixture of people, families, couples and seniors. Hotel is in a very central location, only down side for me was booked promo studio and these rooms are down 2 flights of stairs and no lift so had the hassle of going back to reception to change room and had to get back in an even longer queue. Had I known the promo rooms are below ground I would never booked this, having said that I would definitely go back. Had a fab time, looking to book for September but will be booking a pool or sea view.

We would definitely go back there if we went to the resort again. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. We had a promo studio and it was clean and comfortable. It was very well positioned with lots of bars and restaurant very close by. Many holiday makers complain about guests reserving sun loungers with towels but this was the worst I have ever experienced. On our first morning there were no beds available by 9.15 am! Despite the notice in reception, we did not see anyone removing the towels. However we did find a roof top solarium which was quieter so we tended to use that.

Unfortunately we were unable to get the room we requested. We asked for a ground floor room with a pool view. We were allocated a first floor room overlooking the entrance to the hotel. This was noisy day and night with no sun on the balcony at any time. We requested a different room and offered to pay a supplement if necessary but the hotel were unhelpful. The room itself was fine and the rest of the hotel and food was up to its normal high standard (we have been visiting the hotel for 10 years).

My wife and I have stayed at the Santa Maria many times over the last few years. We usually go self catering or bed and breakfast since there are so many nice places to eat within walking distance of the hotel. The staff at the hotel are all very pleasant.The guests are mainly older married couples.The pool area is spotless with an excellent pool bar and plenty of sunbeds.We will be returning again later this year.

The room and its equipment was a little bit tired as were the towels, however the position for sunshine on the balcony was perfect. The hotel is ideally positioned for the beach, restaurants and supermarkets. There are plenty of lifts in the hotel so even on the sixth floor it was no problem. Breakfast was a buffet with a wide range of hot and cold food and fruit. Clean towels very regular and all staff most helpful led to a very good holiday for two 70 year olds.

Cleanliness, rooms and facilities ok. Air-conditioning would be an advantage or an extra fan in the living room as we had to hire one. Would be useful if there was a courtesy room as we had previously had at this hotel rather than being told to use the pool toilets and shower on our departure day as these were soaking. Hotel is in a good area for beach and quiet nightlife.
