After a good holiday last year, we rebooked a 2 bed apartment for September this year and asked for a pool view room, which ee were allocated. Our room had a small lounge/ kitchen area, 2 separate twin bedded rooms and a fantastic bathroom with walk-in shower. The location was excellent, literally steps away from the pool.
We booked breakfast at a cost of €5 pp per day and added half board for 3 days, taking advantage of a special offer of half board for €12 per person. Breakfast consists of cereals, fruit, continental cheeses and meats, full cooked English breakfast options, along with a variety of breads, croissants and pastries, hot drinks and juices are also included. Dinner is buffet style, with salad, meat dishes, pasta and a couple of kids meal choices. On one of the nights, it was a tex mex buffet with tacos, fajitas, rice, chilli etc and this was probably the best meal we had there.
The hotel has a daily happy hour 4-6pm and prices have not changed from last year so you can get 2 pints of Cruzcampo for €2, as well as wine, soft drinks and cocktails all 2 for the price of 1. Entertainment is generally in the form of a kids mini disco as well as variety acts and singers. The bar is open most nights until 11pm, or 12pm. The staff work tirelessly to keep public areas clean and maintained.
The Santa Rosa is located around 15-20 mins from the resort centre, with a wide selection of bars/ eateries, with a few just outside the hotel. We would not hesitate to rebook!
