The Barlavento Islands region
Cape Verde enjoys sunshine all year round with temperatures ranging from 24 to 30 degrees with almost no rainfall at all. Although the island enjoys the same climate as the Caribbean, there is no risk of hurricanes and it is about 51/2 hours from the UK with no time difference, therefore no jet lag.
Sal is most famous for beautiful beaches and its water sports which include surfing, wind surfing and kite surfing. The world championships for wind surfing are held on this island.Cape Verde is only 5.5 hours from the UK with no time difference, therefore no jet lag!
The international airport is only a 10 minute taxi ride to the Villa (10 Euros), therefore hiring a car is not essential as most of the facilities are within walking distance. Taxis are plentiful on the resort, in Santa Maria and also at the airport.
Santa Maria, Sal Island
Santa Maria is just a 25 minute walk away or 5 minutes in a taxi. It has a charming local croele feel and has numerous local shops, bars and restaurants. You can watch the fishermen bring in their daily catch on the beach or simply stroll around the many craft shops where you can buy anything from African handmade jewellery to beautiful hand paintings.
You can also visit the salt lakes at Pedra De Lume or pay a visit to the main capitol of Espargos. However the island of Sal is renowned for its beautiful beaches which you will find all around the island, but none better than Ponta Preta which are a 10 minute walk from the Villa.

With regards to the services being off for a period of time, this was due to a thunderstorm, which obviously we had no control over. This applied to all the resorts and properties on the island, not just the villa.
The client is correct in stating that there was air-conditioning fitted to the lounge/dining area only and not the bedrooms. This was a temporary situation, as the villa has been constructed for the installation of air-conditioning. The reason why they were not fitted to the bedrooms is due to the resorts construction company, Tecnicil Immobilaria, who have experienced delays in importing enough air-con units to complete the installation in all the villas and apartments on the resort. Therefore, they decided to install 1 large air-con unit into every property and fit the remaining units when they arrived on the island.
We are pleased to advise that the air-conditioning units have now been fitted to all 3 bedrooms.
As far as the resort is concerned, it is quiet at the moment, as it only opened earlier this year, but there are 15 commercial units where leases have been signed, so therefore it is just a case of time before there are more facilities available on the resort. However, there is a supermarket, bank, and 24 hour reception available on the resort. There are also numerous restaurants, bars, supermarkets and shops in the small local town of Santa Maria.
We hope this is of some help.

I would like to thank the above guest for his comments. However, I would also like to respond, as below.
Firstly, this client is correct in stating that there was air-conditioning fitted only to the lounge/dining area and not the bedrooms. This was a temporary situation, as the villa has been constructed for the installation of air-conditioning. The reason why they were not fitted to the bedrooms is due to the resorts construction company, Tecnicil Immobilaria, who have experienced delays in importing enough air-con units to complete the installation in all the villas and apartments on the resort. Therefore, they decided to install 1 large air-con unit into every property and fit the remaining units when they arrived on the island.
We are pleased to advise that the air-con units have now arrived on the island and all the bedrooms will be fitted with these units on September 5th 2012.
SWIMMING POOL MAINTENCE
We have a contract with a professional swimming pool maintenance company, who are contracted to clean and treat the pool every day. The pool was cleaned on the morning of the arrival of the above guests, (this has been logged with the resorts management). The reason why the pool had some leaves in it was due to the time between it being cleaned in the morning and the guests arriving late afternoon, as the winds in Cape Verde don't help the pool situation, this is the reason why the pool is cleaned every day.
Tea towels are provided and cleaned when the laundry is changed.
The villa is cleaned and new laundry supplied every week. If your stay is more that 7 days, then you will receive a mid-stay clean with a change of towels and bed linen. I have checked why the above guests were not supplied with new laundry and mid-stay clean and it was an error on behalf of the house maids, for which we apologise for. They have been advised of this in no uncertain manner and we have been assured that this will not happen again.
We advise on our web site that internet is available, we don't advise that it is in the villa as the signal strength is limited. However, in the information pack that we send to all guests, we recommend they purchase a mobile dongle. These can be plugged into your laptop and can be used anywhere on the island, including in the villa. These can be purchased in various shops in Santa Maria and are only 12 Euros, which work out a lot cheaper than buying a voucher on the resort.
There are limited English channels available, but there are 2 or 3 where you receive 24/7 news from the UK.
I hope this response is of some help
