Melia Buenavista is considered the best hotel in Santa Maria and is extremely popular with our clients. This intimate, boutique-like dwelling, designed solely for adults, perches on three contrasting and beautiful beaches of Santa Maria. The inviting waters and tranquil sun-kissed shores form part of the picture-perfect scenery; a perfect place for travellers to get away from it all and relax.
Guests staying at Melia Buenavista can also enjoy the facilities of neighbouring hotels owned by the Melia group. Take a leisurely walk down the beach, or a short ride on the ‘train’ and enjoy a range of restaurants, swimming pools and sports and entertainment activities at Melia’s other properties.
