Comfortable seaside hotel in Sao Tome
Charming, comfortable seaside hotel on the Sao Tome east coast.
***This hotel closed during the COVID pandemic and has not yet re-opened. We don't currently know when it will.***
On a rocky promontory with a pretty stretch of beach along the east coast of Sao Tome, about 30 minutes' drive from the airport, Club Santana receives good feedback and offers 31 en-suite bungalows, all with air-conditioning and sea view.
Meal plan at the hotel is half board (compulsory) and the required minimum stay is three nights.
The 'sea view bungalows' can each accommodate two adults and one child (maximum age 4). The family bungalows additionally have a living room and are able to accommodate 2 adults and 2 children (age up to 12) as well as an extra bed for a 3rd child aged maximum 4.
Overlooking the pretty Messias Alves beach is the Jaqueira Bar & Esplanade, where meals are served and where guests can sip cocktails while enjoying the sea view. Food in Le Club restaurant is very good - fresh produce is utilised and fish is bought from resident fishermen on a daily basis.
The hotel rates include the following services:
*Transfers from the airport to Club Santana and back
