We rather walk the 10 minutes and enjoy the calming atmosphere of the hotel. The staff is so lovely and helpful. The food is amazing but the restaurant a bit 'clinical', ...

Located in a "real" part of town This is not a resort hotel, so it's pretty much in the centre of the actual town of Santa Maria rather than right on the beach.

Large room, great pool and direct beach access.Great room with a large fridge-freezer which we did use for storing and chilling drinks and fruit, and a hob and over which we didn't use.

Across the street from the beach with nice staff.Rooms are very basic, but clean and have all you need. Strange are the changes for using safe in the room. Internet works only near reception and restaurant (but is free). We had breakfast included in the room price but lunch and diner is expensive for N.Am. standard.

Quirky shaped with all the loveliness you needSimon and Sara were amazing hosts, always with a smile they were happy to dish out advice of what to do and what to see as well as restaurant recommendations. Sakaroule is a gorgeously bright and quirky shaped building, so easy to find! 3 min walk from the beach and into Santa Maria where there are ...
