One thing is for sure, Santa Maria Village Resort and Spa on the island of Milos has magnificent views! You can relax poolside to enjoy the stunning island sunsets. And in the morning, you can catch the sunrise coming over the hills on the opposite side. These romantic displays of the sun, plus a resort feel makes Santa Maria Village a hotel you want to lounge around at all day long. We give it our 5-star rating.
Santa Maria Village is located in Adamas, which is the same village where the port is located. The hotel is up a hill and is about a 20-minute walk from the port or a quick taxi ride. We walked up the hill and it was not strenuous. The taxi costs about 15 euros one-way.

Santa Maria’s hospitality was top notch from the front desk to the poolside bartender. There were two of us traveling together and the staff was extremely welcoming. They even helped us order pizza one night and helped us with our transport needs.
The rooms were very clean and have excellent views. Our room was on the ground floor with a patio overlooking a garden. It was quiet, even though there were other guests in the room above us.
There are a variety of room types to choose from at Santa Maria Village. They have double and triple rooms as well as suites, including a 2-bedroom suite. You can have a garden, pool, or sea view. Each room has a refrigerator and ample closet space.
Santa Maria offers a buffet breakfast with indoor and outdoor seating available. The food is very good. There are several options to accommodate various dietary needs.
Besides having a dreamy view of the sea and mountains, the pool is excellent. It’s big and has plenty of chairs and umbrellas around the perimeter. There are also chairs and tables under a roof near the bar. The pool also has a jacuzzi area that is the same temperature as the pool.
There is also a spa at the hotel, but we did not use it. However, fellow travelers informed us that it was very nice and recommended it.
