Location description from owner

The Ilha do Sal region

CABO VERDE 500k west of Senegal in the Atlantic Ocean, The10 Islands of Cape Verde enjoy their own diverse culture, strong sense of history and identity that has been widely influenced by Africa, Portugal and Brazil, yet remain unique to the Cape Verde islands.The ten islands all offer something different, with enough beauty and beguiling charm for even the most seasoned traveller, along with a tropical climate and miles of beautiful light golden sandy beaches.With flights under 6 hours from the UK, the small time difference and the friendly people, it is had to beat as an all-round holiday destination, and still low key enough to feel like a bit of a discovery

Santa Maria

Principally a beach resort with long stretches of white sand and an abundance of water sports, Sal is really an island for beach lovers as most of the island's sights and attractions can be seen in half a day. By night, Santa Maria, the main tourist area in Sal boasts a lively atmosphere with a good and varied choice of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets (from 10e for a good meal).

MORE ABOUT SAL. Sal is the most developed of all the Cape Verde Islands in terms of tourism yet still has a very barren landscape. In the north of the island you will find a salt lake in an extinct volcano crater, an impressive sight. Marine life around the coast of Sal and the rest of the archipelago is high with countless species including flamboyant tropical fish, dolphins and turtles (season dependant). Live music plays a huge part in Cape Verdean culture and is often performed live in various bars in Santa Maria during the evening. This is a unique experience and one not to be missed. A large percentage of visitors come to Sal for the water sports and it is hardly surprising. Sal's long sandy beaches and turquoise water make a wonderful playground for water sports enthusiasts. It is also the perfect place for relaxing in the sun and enjoying long walks along the deserted coastline. Sal is considered to be amongst the world's top five windsurfing locations so it is not uncommon to see bright coloured sails dotted about the ocean. Kite surfing, diving and deep-sea fishing are also very big on Sal. There are plenty of places to hire equipment, have lessons and organise trips.

The following are just a couple of festivals that take place on Sal:

Nossa Sra. De Piedade (Our Lady of Pity) 15th August - Mass, processions, swimming contests and music festival on beach with local musicians.

Santa Maria Festival/Municipality Day 11th & 12th September - Music festival with various live acts and food & drink stalls..

HOT TIP FOR SAL:See the mirage at Terra Boa. It appears as an ocean right in the middle of the desert. It is an incredible sight and one you may never come across again. You can see this and many other sights on excursions of Sal.

“Superb Home From Home”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2016

Always a sceptic when booking online but this proved to be one of the best the internet has to offer, both in our sixties my wife & I arrived after a 6hr flight to be greeted with a driver holding our name on a board waiting to take us to the hotel, he spoke good English and had the key to our apartment where we were met by the owner Geraldine who was on the island at the time. The apartment is spotless, tiled floor throughout with quality furniture such as a real leather very comfy 2 & 3 seater sofas, one turns into a bed but we did not use it as such, the dinning table and chairs are solid wood and the comfy bed really made it home from home. A couple of minor problems caused by the contract cleaners removing the instruction books for the cooker & safe were soon resolved and a new shower riser rail replaced the fixed shower head holder. Breakfast on the patio with the little birds waiting for their daily bread was a pleasure as was people watching as they decided which sunbed to have around the pool for the day. Personally I could never understand why they just laid there all day only to rise for food, no more than an hour on those things is enough for me, must be getting old & wanting to see what the island had to offer. With a 3 Euro taxi fare into town, a great beach awaits for activities for those who want them - glass bottom boat, jetski, kite surfing island tours both land and sea with dolphin or whale watching and of course some good bars and eateries right there on the beach. A 5* apartment in a 5* hotel on a 5* island is a must return soon Thank you Geraldine for a very warm welcome.

Owner's reply: What a wonderful review Garry and Lynne, thank you so much. It was a pleasure hosting you and I'm glad we were able to put a few niggly problems right from the very start. The hob can be quite baffling, with it's lock on/lock off, + and - buttons! Very pretty and modern but...not always easy! Anyway, you certainly got around a lot, even with your scooter, and saw a lot more than most who stay here. Santa Maria town has a lot to offer every type of person, whatever their age group. Finally, thank you so much for leaving the apt lovely and tidy, spic and span, hardly anything for our new cleaners to do ready for our next mother and son guests arriving that same afternoon! Thank you again, I look forward to hearing from you again. Gx

“Immaculate Apartment, Ideal for the relaxing stay that I needed”

Reviewed 4 Feb 2016

High quality Apartment, furnished, fitted and equipped to a high standard. Comfortable in the extreme. We stayed at Dunas whilst we had friends staying nearby. We ate breakfast at the apartment and took other meals with our friends and each evening we ate in Santa Maria, so I am not qualified to comment on the Restaurant facilities within the Dunas resort. The comments that I heard from other guests were favourable. The apartment, itself suited our needs admirably and was efficiently managed. We had an excellent Welcome Pack waiting for us on arrival, the apartment had been very well prepared and was spotlessly clean. I would recommend this venue, it was exactly what we needed, relaxing,very comfortable and no hassle what so ever !

Owner's reply: Thank you for a great review, it's a help to other potential guests, and makes all the effort worthwhile.

“A Lovely relaxing break”

Reviewed 2 Feb 2016

We stayed for a week at Geraldine apartment and we just love it. The well furnished apartment was perfect, very clean and had everything we needed. The location inside the resort was also perfect, next to reception and with one of the pools just right in front. We love the resort facilities, the diary shows and the pool animations. The village, where you can buy everything you need, only takes 5 minutes by taxi and cost 3/4 €. There are several restaurants were you can eat typical food for a very nice price. Geraldine, the owner, was very quick to reply to our emails and provided us with lots of useful information. I Would definitely consider returning

Owner's reply: A great big thank you for this - another positive review which always makes me feel that providing really good holiday accommodation is worthwhile. I am always available by phone or email for help and advice about either the apartment, the hotel and/or the local town and island.

“Already booked to stay again !”

Reviewed 2 Feb 2016

I booked this apartment to stay in again as soon as we arrived back and also will be booking next year when flights come in price . The apartment is lovely and so is the Dunas Resort . I could not fault either. I loved the situation of the apartment as it was quiet compared to some of the areas.

Owner's reply: Thank you Karen and Steve, I'm very pleased you chose my apartment, and that we could help again for mid Feb....not long now! Gx

“lovely apartment”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2015

This is a brand new apartment within a new spa hotel. A 5 minute walk to the beach through the hotel grounds & pool areas. It is a 45 minute walk into Santa Maria, not a particularly pleasant walk so a taxi is a better option. For this reason I would suggest taking the all inclusive package. We ate in the main all inclusive restaurant just the once & the food was good with plenty of choice. We prefer to eat in Santa Maria where there are lots of very good restaurants

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. The all inc rates are by the meal, by the day or by the week; and the many taxis available are only a few euros from the Hotel reception to Santa Maria town, and there are then many choices plus seeing the local area. Alternatively, self cater in the Apt.
