MiraBela can barely be compared to other hotels because we are just different.
It is a variety of aspects that make us stand out, like our fantastic staff, the Cape Verdean decor, the friendly atmosphere, our traditional and authentic building and the location in the vibrant heart of Santa Maria and yet so close to the beach. We combine all this with good comfort and a lovely roof terrace.
Our wonderful roof terrace
Our roof terrace is not just for breakfast. You can relax here any time of day. Even though the beautiful Santa Maria beach is so close, you may want to spend time on our terrace for sunbathing, reading a book, having a drink or playing one of our games.
A reduced footprint
We have taken the following measures:
Cotton shopping bags in every room so that guests do not have to ask for plastic bags when shopping
Bamboo straws for the welcoming cocktails
A water purification system so that we do not have to throw so many plastic bottles away, which are not being recycled. We provide reusable bottles.
BTW; this system also deletes all bacteria from the water like legionella. So you are not only safe drinking our water but also under the shower
We understand that guests need air conditioners in the hot months (usually August until mid November) but we try to make our guests aware that they should only use them when they need to
We only change towels if guests indicate that they want fresh ones by throwing them on the floor
We want to install solar panels at the hotel, as soon as we find a supplier that can do proper maintenance.
Hotel MiraBela is, when it was still called Les Alizés, built in the year 2000 by the former French owner. He did a great job. The charm of the hotel and the layout of the building are all his work. As is the amazing location.
In May 2018, the Dutch couple Ron and Judith, bought the hotel and completely upgraded it. And again in 2019.
They have changed the name of the hotel to MiraBela.
"We wanted the hotel to have a Portuguese or Creole name. Mira Bela (which means "looking pretty") sounds nice and is easy to remember.
And it is an appropriate name for our beautiful building.
We are perfectionists, passionate about continuously improving every aspect of the hotel. We took MiraBela to the next level and keep on doing so on a daily basis".
