“Nice but ... location?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2011

Good, clean and welcoming. Les Alizes is now situated in down-town Santa Maria surrounded by shops & restaurants so this isn't a quiet location but if that's okay then this is a pleasant little place.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2010

We chose this guesthouse for the original style of the house and its depiction of being a "petit hotel de charme" and were not disappointed. We stayed in a "sea view" room: directly under the roof, with a big terrace overlooking the main street of Santa Maria. Both the main square and the beach (hence "sea view") are just one block away. Breakfast is served outdoors: on the terrace next to ours, by the lady of the house herself: Mrs Josée.

Consider Mrs Josée your local auntie: she knows the town inside out, and goes to lengths to help with any inquiries about tips for trips or places where she likes to eat and drink (Café de Cultura, Barracuda, Atlantis among others proved excellent tips). She can also arrange car+driver for any local trips at cheaper than travel agency prices. She even helped us out with a residencial for the next island we visited and called them to arrange the reservation for us.

We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely stay here again, even if it is not the cheapest in town it offers definitely the best price-quality ratio, therefore well worth it if you are looking for a smack-in-the-middle-of-it-all good alternative to both uncharming cheap hostels and "all-in" isolation camps.
