Location description from owner

The Ilha do Sal region

A charming island nation off the African west coast. Cape Verde is great for holidays in the sun. Beautiful white sand beaches and clear blue waters awaits you on Boa Vista, Sal and other stunning Cape Verde islands.

Sailing, windsurfing, kite-surfing and fishing are some enjoyable activities available to visitors to Cape Verde.
Scuba divers will be enthralled by Cape Verdes wrecks, caves and wildlife including sea turtles and manta rays.

There are many places of interest including the Fortaleza del Real Felipe, built in the 16th century, which is a restored Spanish fort overlooking Santiagos Cidade Velha. Grand Mount Fogo, Cape Verdes tallest peak, offers intrepid climbers amazing panoramic views from its summit. Unspoilt Brava, smallest of the islands, contains an incredible wealth of diverse wildlife in its expansive forests.

Enjoy Cape Verdes vibrant and mixed culture in live performances of local morna, coladeira, funana and batuque music. With the unique blend of Latin, Afican and Portugese influences, this is a very exotic and vibrant place to be. The true examplar of this is the Mardi Gras which is celebrated in a lively carnival in Sao Vincente town Mindelo with live music and colourful parades.


Santa Maria

If lounging on balmy tropical beaches is your thing, Sal delivers big time. The most tourist-oriented Cape Verde island, this stunning gem is encircled by dazzling white sands and turquoise waters, creating an idyllic playground for sun and surf fanatics. There's a myriad of ocean-going pursuits to enjoy, from snorkelling and diving amid waters alive with tropical fish, to exhilarating deep-sea fishing, windsurfing and kite-surfing. You must go to Kite beach, if not to participate, it is still a great place for the spectator.

The main hotspot of Santa Maria has friendly cafes, bars, surf shops and restaurants and for more adventure, take a jeep safari through the surreal desert landscape to wow at the volcanic crater of Pedra da Lume and the astonishing ocean-mirage at Terra Boa. By night, Santa Maria swings into action, with a cavalcade of morna-playing bars, mouth-watering fish restaurants and a cluster of discos to keep you up late.

You really feel safe and relaxed here. The locals are charming, shy and very friendly and they go out of their way to help.

Try Azul Restaurant at the Porto Antigo or Tam Tam for lunch and Zum Fisherman Restaurant is a must for sea food lovers.

“A great spot for relaxation”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2016

We can't fault this apartment - it is modern, spacious, clean and well maintained by the owners/management team. We had 2 bedrooms (a double and a twin arrangement) with 2 bathrooms, an airy lounge on to the private terrace and a tidy kitchen, equipped by the owners with everything you could possibly need, including a fridge, microwave and washing machine. Any small issues/queries were resolved immediately by the owner by text, can't fault the response rate and service. We booked on a self catering basis through Holiday Lettings although the apartment is within a well-maintained all inclusive 5 star resort. The main facilities of the resort were available at no extra cost - the gardens, pools, kids club and entertainment were all very good indeed and our 8 year old was happy as can be for the entire stay. Food and drinks were available for a premium (the beach bar lunch meals were particularly good), but food standards were generally better and cheaper in town, so it's worth the 3 euro trip every evening. The supermarket is a taxi ride away, and offerings were fairly limited. Top tip - the onsite spa is wonderful - the staff are friendly and helpful, and the treatments are very good value for money. There is a sea view from the terrace - but with the speed of development on Sal I don't think that will be there for long! For those that prefer a busy holiday, Sal probably isn't the place to go ... everything revolves around the beach (watersports - be careful swimming or surfing over rocks). There are very limited shopping opportunities, mostly local crafts, gifts etc., and if the weather is bad the kids tended to get a bit restless. But the people are beautiful and friendly, we couldn't fault the food, and there is a cool vibe about this island - definitely worth escaping to for a week.

Thank you for booking with us and taking time to review our apartment, we are pleased you appreciate the hard work we put into maintaining our apartment.

“It was wonderful”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2015

We had an excellent stay with Lorain in her apartment. It has everything what is needed to feel good. Whenever we needed help or anything Lorian was always answering at once. The people in the hotel are also very friendly especially Heidi. She supported us a lot. Unfortunately it was a bit cold outside during our stay and there was not enough warm blanckets. We will go again next year and we are very much looking forward to stay again for 6 weeks.

“Lovely apartment within a great hotel, very relaxing”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2014

Great 2 bed apartment with all mod cons (note: no dishwasher though!). The apartment is in a great, quiet location to the side of the hotel with views to the sea. Comfy bed and air con in the master bed and in the sitting room. Huge flat screen TV and Blue Ray player. You also have access to the hotel's amenities. The hotel is situated about 15 mins from the airport (but no aeroplane noise). Highly recommend the apartment.

“Great apartment in beautiul resort”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2014

The apartment is wonderful and really did meet all our expectations. The location on the resort is ideal, not too close to entertainment areas and from the balcony you have a great view on the ocean. There are some nice restaurants in Santa Maria, I recommend the Barracuda. You will have no problem finding a taxi to and from Santa Maria, a single trip will cost you about €4. You can also walk, that will take 30 - 40 minutes. There is a small supermarket near the hotel, but stock is limited. You can find directions in the information folder in the apartment. Recommended activities: - hire a quad for a day at CaboQuad and vist the island at your own pace. Stay on the main roads or make use of the many trails. Go really crazy on the open terrain near Kite Beach. - let a guide take you on a private tour with his buggy (Island Tour) Both can be booked at one of the booking offices in Santa Maria.

“Lovely apartment in a great location”

Reviewed 1 Mar 2014

Loraine and Denis made sure we had all the information we needed for our first holiday in Cape Verde. I am sure we will be back, we had a wonderful time.. The apartment is spacious and nicely furnished. Unlike many holiday rentals, the kitchen was very well equipped. The Melia Tortuga resort is set out well and had everything you might need. Having said that, we liked to get out and about in Santa Maria which was a short taxi ride away, or a long but beautiful walk along the beach.

“Good and relaxing”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2013

Nice apartment and good complex. Frendly staf and good food and drinks. Good positend for St. Maria village (half an hour walk, cheap taxiride or with the hotel bus). Our advantage was de fully equipted apartment (privatly owned) in combination with the possibility of a day all-inclusieve or going your own way when you chose for a day away from the complex.
