We wanted some winter sun & Sal was perfect for this, the apartment is only a minute from the pool & private beach area and a few minutes from the massive sandy beach you'll see in all the adverts etc.
The place itself was really nice, we loved the mezzanine style for the main bedroom & the general comfy & welcoming feel. Its got everything you need, big fridge, freezer, fully equipped kitchen (tho we didn't really cook, we mostly wandered along the beach & ate in the local restaurants).
The locals are all really friendly, and there's very much a 'holiday' atmosphere, plenty of bars etc if you're fancying a night out but the apartment is set a few streets back from the livelier part of town so its lovely and quiet. We wandered around Santa Maria and felt that the apartment was definitely in the nicer end (tho its all pretty nice), the little pair etc is all very picturesque.
Ultimately the the location is the key, the beach is by far...
Problem with this review?
