    The hotel and surrounding area was immaculate. Safe and sound with just a 10 minute walk into town. I’d walk late at night and never felt danger. More importantly there was always security there to greet me when I returned. The food was good and the staff was sweet!

    Beautiful restful stay with no children at the hotel which made it very peaceful and relaxing.... staff were amazing and food was really good and presentation was excellent. Ideal spot for my partner who kitesurfs as only 10 min ride to kite beach by taxi (10 Euros return). Ten min walk to centre of town.

    Quiet and comfortable hotel / friendly staff

    We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is not luxurious but clean, comfortable and very quiet. Only negative is maybe the restaurant for diner: a bit overpriced compared to other restaurants in Santa Maria and the quality wasn't always there.

    I booked a room with a Sea View but did not get a room facing the sea. Instead it was facing a fairly run down street. I was also messaged a day before my stay telling me that they could not offer me a room even though I already paid for it which really panicked me.

    Good hotel but resort overall poor

    Good hotel but poor location at end of dirt track and surrounded by half built shabby housing. Sal is great if you like water sports but otherwise there is very little to do and even less to see. Staff were all courteous.
