There is something bewitching about the waxing and waning swell of the sea. Unfold a picnic chair, stretch out and enjoy watching the ever-changing moods of the ocean at Praia de Santa Maria. There's a great range of things to keep you busy in and around this destination. Choose a good vantage point and observe the people bustling by at Santa Maria Town Square. If you feel like having a chin-wag, this enduring gathering point is also the perfect spot to mingle with locals and fellow travelers. Still got time to spare? Inhale the clean air and admire noisy seabirds gliding through the sky at Shark Bay Beach. A couple of hours by the water's edge does wonders for your health.
Though Santa Maria does have 24 accommodations to select from, it's always good to secure a room early. Not sure where to begin? Expedia is here to help with your next luxury getaway or cheap vacation.
The ClubHotel Riu Funana - All Inclusive (Cabocan Lote A2, A3) and the Meliá Tortuga Beach - All Inclusive (Urbanizacao da Cabocan ZDTI Ponta Preta) are two of the higher-quality choices in Santa Maria. Book a room at either and you're sure to have the nicest guest amenities and hotel features in town. If your vacation fund is a little lower than you dreamed it would be, the DOURADA Studios (rua Santiago, 22) and the Hotel Central Sal (Rua das Salinas) are some cheaper options.
There's nothing as satisfying as finally coming in to land at Amilcar Cabral International Airport (SID) after a cramped flight. Once you've secured your suitcases and stretched your legs, you'll find yourself about 9 miles (14 km) from the heart of Santa Maria.

the ocean view from the suite was very nice, and the whole property well taken care off
Like all hotels there was good and bad..... but overall good value for a family of four: *Nice grounds, all buildings only 2 storey so felt homely and nice that there is a choice of a noisy or a quiet pool. Pools were a bit too cold but got in eventually. *Sunbed reservation/usage caused friction ...
Melia Llana is new, rooms are very nice, everything works perfectly. Food in the buffet much better than in most all inclusives. Two minor complaints: a very limited choice of drinks in the bars, for anything not on the short list you have to pay extra (e.g. Bloody Mary is considered premium (?)) ...
The biggest resort I ever been on. Very comfortable
Riu Funana is a very well kept and family friendly resort. We came first more than 10 years ago, and were happily surprised to see that the resort had only improved, particularly the service and activities. Highly recommended for families with young children.
Lovely stay! Clean, modern, beautiful hotel. Lovely location, close to the beach and some great restaurants but out the way enough that you feel like one of the locals. Really happy friendly staff, from reception, kitchen to house keeping. Everyone says good morning and couldn’t help you enough! ...
