Top tips for finding Santa Maria hotel deals

  • If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Santa Maria, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper hotels in Santa Maria in September and June.
  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Santa Maria if you stay on a Friday. The opposite is true for, Thursday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their hotel in Santa Maria for 7 days.
  • For the best ocean views in Santa Maria, look for hotels close to the coast, such as the Hilton Cabo Verde Sal Resort, which offers a particularly stunning Atlantic backdrop.
  • For travellers looking for a more secluded place to stay, the Riu Palace Cabo Verde offers premium hospitality slightly away from the hustle and bustle of Santa Maria.
  • If beach access is your main priority, a number of hotels are just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Halos Beach, including the Voi Vila do Farol Resort, which is just a few steps from the beach.
  • For that iconic photo while staying on the island of Sal, look for hotels close to the famous Pontão de Santa Maria used every day by local fisherman.
  • If you're travelling on a budget, hotels without an ocean view are often more affordable but remain just a short walk from the coast for you to enjoy the best that Santa Maria has to offer.
  • If you’re planning on surfing when you visit Santa Maria, it's best to stay close to the beach, such as at The Budha Beach Hotel, and between the months of November and March, when the waves are often bigger.
  • Wildlife lovers will also enjoy the west of Santa Maria, where they can experience much more of Sal's nature and also visit Project Biodiversity's Turtle Hatchery by the Riu Hotel.
