Santa Marina prices are always competitive and represent very good value for money. However, certain seasonal and special occasion discounts may be offered after consultation with one of our staff members.

You can burn your own music selection onto CDs, but this is yet another task that may add to your stress-levels. We strongly advise you to book a small band or DJ, as this will not only free you from some stress, but will definitely give you a really professional music presentation We can make recommendations if required.
DJs and bands are welcome at Santa Marina Hall. However, please be advised that your choice of music level must comply with our operational requirements and the ambience of the property, and must not disturb nearby residents. We therefore require all glass doors to remain closed if loud music is played, and all amplified music must only be played indoors. Rest assured that the music will be loud enough for you to dance / party to!
No confetti or silk rose petals please. Sorry, but they are very difficult to clean up.
There are enough parking spaces to accommodate all of your guests’ cars.
A good time to cut the cake is after the reception. We bring a decorated table to the middle of the dance floor for the cake-cutting ceremony. Your cake is then moved to the sweets area where it can be on display during the rest of your function.

We have reputation for high quality cuisine. To get this right, enormous amounts of time and preparation go into our menus. Sourcing the best quality raw produce and presentation of the dishes is of great importance. Should you wish to make changes to the menu, you will need to make an appointment to meet our executive chef well before the event, to discuss produce availability and preparation practicality.
In order for us to continue our good reputation for high quality food, outside catering is strictly not allowed.
Of course! Please talk to one of our staff and they will arrange this for you.
