We enjoyed this hotel very much, and found we had been upgraded to a 2 bed apartment with leather sofas and flat screen TV in lounge and bedroom. There was plenty of variety in the main buffet restaurant, although we preferred to have breakfast in the pool restaurant as it was quieter, and took lunch in the O Grille Beach Bar, and the tuna steak freshly cooked on the BBQ grill was delicious! The beach was fantastic so clean and unspolit. The island isnt great for touring as there isnt alot to see, its like a lunar surface without much vegetation at all as there hasnt been any rain for about 10 years! We had a lovely boat trip around the island, and were made to feel very welcome. Santa Maria town was an experience, the people here are generally poor, and we kept getting pestered with young lads wanting to be your friend and give you a tour of the town, if only for the price of a cup of coffee. So watch your purses if out and about.
