My wife and I stayed two weeks at the Hotel Pontão, in late January and early February. We had a superior double room on the first floor, facing west with a view of the pool. The apartment was spacious and bright. The cleaning was good. The balcony was large and nice, unfortunately the balcony furniture was not so comfortable. The breakfast was varied and nice, but nothing excessive. The coffee could have been better. There were plenty of sun loungers around the pool, but most were in perpetual shadow. On the roof there was a terrace with sun loungers. There it was nice on the days it didn't blow so much. The location of the hotel was perfect, within walking distance to the beach, the pier, shops and restaurants.
Enjoyed our stay. Lovely staff. Clean and contemporary rooms. Great pool. Good breakfast. Try to get a room at the back to avoid the noise from the street and nearby disco. The cats were the highlight for me.
small hotel near the center of santa maria, my room was inside sight to the pool, not noisy at all, I even hat wifi access on the balcony;) (not all rooms have it), wifi only in the lobby area available. the rooms have a little fridge. bath/shower are big unfortunately in the morning no hot water!! for me a problem. hot water in the evening only available if sun was shining during the day. the rooms are clean and confortable. breakfast is ok, a chef there who makes fried eggs freshly. different bread available, tea, fruit, everything you need. but for me price and performance where not ok. 1 week €1400.00 an no hot water available???!! I will not come back
Very nice, clean and comfortable hotel. Good basic services, nice pool and jacuzzi on rooftop. Quite a big room and balcony. Great breakfast and ok service with reasonable prices. Friendly staff. Excellent location.
I booked this hotel because I got a very cheap deal on this. The room was very clean and okay decorated, but it needs some renovation. The pool was not heated which was a disappointment for a summer holiday. Another big negative point is that there is no wifi available in the room, only at the pool and in the reception. Staff was not friendly at all! We asked to have our room longer than check-out time, because our flight was leaving at 11PM. They absolutely made no problem out of this, which surprised me a lot because no one was really friendly. We were ofcourse very happy to get the room longer - so big positive points for that. I would definitely not come back here due to the not-heated pool, no wifi in the room and the lack of friendliness. On the other side: I booked this very cheap, so I can’t complain, but if you book this at regular price, this is much too expensive. …
