Stayed in Hotel Morabeza for a week in early-July, and had a wonderful stay - and from looking at other hotels in the area, I think that this is definitely the best hotel in Santa Maria.
Our room (booked through lowcostholidays, so one of the more basic rooms I imagine) was good, with a lovely modern bathroom, and a view out towards the beach over the crazy golf area. I know some people in previous reviews have mentioned the noise from the renovation work that is being done, however we were not disturbed by it at all, and from looking at the plans of what renovations are being done I think that the short-term disturbance for some guests will be worth it once everything is completed.
We had a welcome meeting with Thomas from Customer Services, who couldn't have been more helpful. He recommended some great local restaurants, and also advised how to change currency to ensure you got the best rate if you couldn't be bothered queuing at the bank.
Also very helpful was one of the duty managers (no name I'm afraid), who interrupted her dinner to come and assist us when we managed to forget the code to the safe in our room (doh!).
We were out every morning scuba diving, and found plenty of things to fill our afternoons, both in Santa Maria in general and in Hotel Morabeza. Morabeza has a good range of activities such as petanque, crazy golf, swimming pool, games room, library etc so that I'm sure most people can keep themselves well entertained.
The food (we were staying on a bed+breakfast basis) was good with plentiful breakfasts and a wide choice of food. We ate in Restaurant Tortuga one night and the food there was lovely too.
Overall, we had a great stay in Hotel Morabeza, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to people.
