“Fabulous”
Reviewed 24 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

The apartment is actually better than the photos. It is set away from the main reception area, which means you are closest to the pools and beach. Literally steps away from the main pool with the pool bar. The apartment is well designed, and home from home. The kitchen was well equipped and there was lots of space in the bedrooms and bathrooms. Ladies - if you like wearing heels, don't take stilettos as the whole resort (and Santa Maria) is cobbles. The resort is well maintained, pretty, and the staff are very attentive. Loved it and didnt want to leave. Would definitely return. Contact with owner was great - he even ensured that a taxi was waiting for us at the airport.

“Excellent apartment on a lovely 5* hotel complex!”
Reviewed 25 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Modern, spacious and well-equipped apartment. However, no welcome pack/basic provisions were provided on arrival.

Good location - roughly half an hour's walk into the nearest town of Santa Maria, via road, or 2 hours along the beach. Or taxis are in abundance at a cost of €3.

Good free WiFi connection within the apartment!

Very tame sparrows frequent the balcony in the hopes of being fed!

Liked best: View and apartment overall.
Liked least: Being very close to an outside store room creating a lot of noise with deliveries and collections from, and one of the complex's entrance gates manned by security guards - so were constantly looking up at the balcony!

“An elegantly furnished, fully equipped, well maintained and clean apartment”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

An elegantly furnished, fully equipped, well maintained and clean apartment with a balcony facing south-west giving a view of the sea. We were welcomed with a starter pack of provisions and a good selection of towels and sheets were provided. The apartment also had two flat-screened TVs and a washing machine.
The resort had two lovely swimming pools and a sandy beach, although the sea was too rough to swim in. The downside was that the Melia resort was focussed on their all-inclusive clients. Drinks could be readily purchased from the various bars at a reasonable price, but meals (with wine) could only be had if pre-purchased at a rather exorbitant charge of €38 per person (lunch) or €48 pp (dinner). There was only one bar/restaurant close to the resort, a nice but simple beach bar 500m to the south at Ponte Preta beach (a lovely sandy cove) that served good fish lunches. However, a large selection of restaurants could be found in Santa Maria, easily reached by the hotel shuttle bus or taxi.
