“Wetherspoons of Santa Maria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We had a few wild nights in here and it was fab.
Bit rough and ready but help support the local economy by have a drink or 2 in here.
Pity some of the other guests in the hotel were a bit too intimidated to come into town at night because we found the local bars and people very hospitable.
Rather than sit outside go in and listen/dance to the live band or walk through to the courtyard at the back which was very relaxing.

“Good drinks, not so good music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Calema offers a good selection of well prepared drinks to a wide range of different customers. I definitely recommend sitting outside, where it is much nicer than inside.

“Let's drink!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Definitely you don't want to miss the happpy hour (perhaps the best caipirinha). The place is probably the most famous bar for turists (not for locals but you will find lots). Dj plays music all kind of music. The WC's are very clean. Prices are good.
