Hotels in St Maria Island
Hotels in St Maria Island are as comfortable and cozy as the ones existing on other islands of the Azores archipelago. The most famed are at Vila do Porto.
Hotels in St Maria Island aren’t as many as in other islands like Sao Miguel for instance.
However, the existing hotels in St Maria Island are very pleasant and suitable for all tastes and pockets, no matter you are travelling alone, with friends or with your family.

Mar e Sol Apartments

These are simple yet practical apartments. Sol e Mar is on this list of best hotels in St Maria Island due to its location: Overlooking the sandy beach of Praia village. I just love to have breakfast on the balcony enjoying the blue ocean ahead.
Casa de São Pedro
Address: Termo da Igreja
9580-332 Vila do Porto
Phone: +351 296 884 044
Casa de São Pedro is a 19th century manor house restored by the current owners in 1977. This is definitely one of my favourite hotels in St Maria Island. What really charms me is the fact that the house is located in farm. Therefore, visitors share the space with animals such as sheep, goats and dwarf pigs. Besides on the farm there is a bird park with exotic species.

9580 Vila do Porto
