Very central, great location overlooking the beach! Could not be beaten.... More

Had some great nights in this fantastic bar. Cocktails to die for - my wife highly recommends 'The Hugo'. If you hit a busy night or get a few friends together, this place is quirky and has get atmosphere. It sits directly opposite the beach, so day or night, the view is great.

Simply the best ice cream. Dozens of flavours, rich and creamy. Views over the beach. Good service from very pleasant female staff.

Get it to go! The server did not explain that we would get three scoops for two flavors. So we ended up with an odd order. They also asked us to move seats as the sofa we were on "was new"?! Odd. Gelato was better than average.

Great bar in the most picturesque location in centre of santa maria. Beautiful and top class cocktails and service. The owner dominico is so down to earth and welcoming. Looking forward to our return visit in September already.
