Great Apartment Close to the Centre of Santa Maria
I had a lot of trouble finding Aparthotel Ponta Preta because it changed its name about 2 years ago to Aparthotel Nautilus! This needs to be changed on Hotels.com after confirming with the owners. My apartment was No. 5 at ground level, had its own private off street entrance and had an open plan living room with kitchen with fridge/freezer and TV, a bathroom with shower, bidet, hair dryer etc, and a bedroom with double and single bed, large wardrobes, a small key safe and AC. Situated about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Santa Maria and 2 minutes from the beach it was ideal for my stay. I didn't use the kitchen facilities as I preferred to eat out, however I probably would have if a kettle and toaster had been present. I ate breakfast at Columbus Beach Club, a short walk from my apartment and on the beach at a cost of 7 Euros. The reception office was situated on the corner of the building and open from 9am - 5pm. Staff were very helpful. I wanted a place with privacy and away from the big all inclusive hotels with families, kids etc., close to the centre of town and the beach, and the Nautilus was ideal. I would recommend it.

10/10 Exceptional

Cosy apartment in a very good location
The property is in a great location, with shops, restaurants and the beach all within a 15 minute walk. It’s not located somewhere too busy like a main road which is really nice. The apartment that I stayed in was very cosy and clean, with a well equipped kitchenette although there was no washing up liquid to clean the dishes. The staff are very helpful and welcoming, but the published opening office hours online (8.30am to 6pm) don’t quite match the actual office hours. The reception was closed when I arrived on Sunday afternoon, but thankfully I was still able to check in and receive my key. I didn’t need to use WiFi or air conditioning during my stay so I can’t comment on the service but I highly recommend this aparthotel and I would definitely stay here again.

Small local area everywhere is a good location
Nice, very basic and left to yourself really. Could do with more towels, blankets etc (e.g. 2 very thin pillows in apartment. I didn’t need more so they may have if asked. All in all cheap and cheerful and decent staff.

Kom ditt var det ingen där, en person som gick förbi informerade oss att man fick gå till en annan hotel en bra bit bort för att hämta nyckel, bemötande på den andra hotel var jättebra, han som hjälpte oss var väldigt trevligt men när vi kom till lägenhet det var inte ordentliga städat. Men annars var en stor lägenhet med allt man behöver, och frukost var bra och gott
