Melia Tortuga Beach Resort & Spa details

This newly-built property offers a beachfront location, a great pool scene and a long list of activities.

The Melia Tortuga Beach Resort & Spa hugs the sands of Ponta Preta Beach. What’s more, it’s just a ten-minute taxi drive from the centre of Santa Maria.

As far as facilities are concerned, the hotel is home to two spacious swimming pools, which are surrounded by sunloungers and parasols. There are also a couple of separate children’s pools for little ones to splash about in.

You can get involved with a long list of activities when you stay here, too. The hotel puts on everything from yoga and aerobics to introductory kite surfing courses.

The hotel counts wining and dining as one of the things it does best. The main buffet restaurant - Spices - serves food throughout the day, while the O Grille Beach Club offers late-riser breakfasts and afternoon coffee with cakes.
