New ST hotel

Post by magpie69 » May 26th, 2017, 12:35 pm

Just been down to ST and was surprised to see that a large hotel is mushrooming up at the back of the resort at the Victoria playa end. Any information on this? The villa owners nearby will be quaking in their avarcas!

I saw the steel frame going up during a visit a few weeks ago. It looks enormous - far too big for the surroundings - quite how that got planning I don't know........... well, I do.

The 165 bed hotel is being built for Set Hotels - who own half of Santo Tomas including Hotel Santo Tomas. It opens in May 2018 and bookings are being taken already. I resisted the temptation. I stayed in Santo Tomas last weekend and was really disappointed by its imposing and dominant position.
Hotel ST staff retain a dignified silence. However, on Monday 22nd May, Hotel ST was fully booked
In July and August the resort is already very crowded. Another 160 odd families is not really a great idea - did they not learn from Cala Galdana ?
The impressions on the website are very good, as you would expect from them. They transformed Playa Azul in Calen P and made a quality job of the renovation when the took over.
We are back in early July for our "proper" holiday. We are a very boring family - this will be our 22nd visit in 18 years.
It might be our last ?
