We found this beach whlst walking around Santa Maria. We ate at the restaurant on the beach of old Porto Antigo Residence twice. In an Idyllic location, restuarant in a wonderful location with views over the bay. The beach was stunning and peaceful.

A bit old, very simple old bed. Mostly used by touroperators as cheap accomodation. Cheap but cheap is what you get. Paid wifi, simple pool. Deposit for pooltowels and deposit for covers for the poolchairs. Not enough covers so relax on the stones or hard wooden poolchair. For me once was enough

The location is excellent but the apartment complex is completely run down. There was a lot of trash lying around and even after multiple demands to put it away nothing happened. In the trash there were a lot of bugs which were quite loud at night. The smell at the pool was not good either ;-(

The rooms were adequately equipped but i do agree with previous comments that they do vary significantly between apartments. We stayed in 80/2 on complex 2...
