We arrived at this gorgous villa, and were greeted by an excellent property manager who greeted us with chilled wine and showed us round everything in the house and gave us lots of information on the Resort and the island in general, he even met us the next day and showed us round the town and all of the places that the owner had recommended, so we got our bearings really quickly, it was the perfect start to our holiday. the villa is very well decorated and very spacious, and looks as good as it does on the photos, the weather was just superb, and the beaches on the island are stunning, our favourite was Santa Maria, and we like all the great little bars and restaurants dotted along it where we could sit and enjoy a drink or a nice peaceful meal with spectacular views. this island is a definite choice if you just want to chill out in the sun, we had a great time and will be visiting again and have also recommended it to all of our friends. Big thankyou to Alison the owner and her management team down there they all did everything to ensure our holiday went smoothly.
We had the best family holiday ever in this gorgous villa, it was so spacious and beautifully decorated with a stunning view of the sea. Our kids loved the pool at the villa and played in it most of the day with the little friends they made next door, while my husband and I lay and read our books it was just bliss. We went to a few of the stunning beaches and our favourite was Santa Maria, where we also ate a few times and used the recommendations that they owner gave us, our favourite was the Barracuda. It was really hot even at that time of year but the villa was brilliantly air conditioned so it was lovely and cool at all times. Sal is a beautiful island, we took one of the island tours which was great and a really good day out. The resort is amazing and the staff very friendly, you can choose to do all inclusive but we took the advice of the owner and went out most of the time, we also cooked a couple times the kitchen has everything we also used the BBQ one time. The only negative thing I have to say was it was difficult to get a drink in the resort without being all inclusive and expensive everything else just fabulous and will definitely return, and will booked through the same owner she was so helpful and friendly.
being back from holiday it took quite a while to find back to normal routine! This is especially because we had such A GREAT TIME ON SAL!
Thank you very much for everything: The 6 of us spent a fantastic time in your villa, sufficient space for all of us and complete equipment to find and do everything we wanted. The children loved their own pool in the garden but also the beach and the overall resort atmosphere (the litte one felt in love with all the colorful flowers). Two of us made a diving license (it was great to have a diving school that close) while the other two were having a real relaxing time with the kids. It was fantastic.
We also visited some of the restaurants you recommended and really felt in love with the good and fresh food as well as the friendly service and atmosphere everywhere in Santa Maria. We bought fish at the pier in Santa Maria several times (great quality for a fantastic price) and enjoyed cooking our own meals but we also tried the local speciality "Cachuppa" (is this the right spelling?) in Café Creole. We also loved the Barracuda where we were sitting (and the children were playing) in the sand and they served fabulous dinner.
Ildo was a perfect taxi driver. We called him as often as possible and were never ever disappointed. He does not only speak English very well but is also a good organizer. We loved the isle tour with him and Silvio where we learned a lot about SAL, the Cap Verdean people and their attitude. My little girl loved to drive with Ildo (she was allowed to sit in front or also stand in the back between the both front seats)!
All in all we had a fantastic time and would like to thank you again. It is a lovely villa in a really lovely and relaxing area!
We will not only recommend visiting Cap Verde (and your villa) but also hope to come back one day.
Until then we wish you all the best!

Our family of four - including a toddler and a pre-schooler have just returned from the Villa at Tortuga Beach. We hired a car which made things much easier with the two children and although self catering wasn't perfect in terms of availability we got into a great routine. It was lovely getting fresh fish from the pier everyday, fruit/veg from the local stalls, the gorgeous bakery and using the supermarket.
We ate out a bit and used the hotel grille bar/restaurant but the it took the staff quite some getting used to the fact we were charging things to the room and weren't all inclusive like many people staying at the resort.
We went to beaches, the salt mines, the blue eye and did the submarine trip - but the beaches were probably the out right winner with the children although the turtle hatchery was a very, very close second (our daughter in particular enjoyed adopting a baby turtle just after it had hatched and seeing a picture of it being released into the sea).
I did think the villa was beyond well equipped for self catering - one the best places we've ever stayed in. And having the small pool in teh garden was perfect as we could let the wee one sleep after lunch whilst the pre-schooler played.
We also used the hotel pools - which were great - and we would've loved to have used the spa and the gym but alas no time. Hopefully next time!
From start to finish all of our expectations were met, we were very lucky to meet Alison and her lovely family who had a taxi waiting for us at the airport. We had a bottle of fizz chillin on arrival and shared a cocktail whilst Alison gave us a tour of the villa and passed on some tips about the resort and Sal etc.
We managed to visit most of the restaurants Alison reccommended, they were all lovely but particuarly the Odjo d Agua. The villa was gorgeous, well equipped and well positioned in the resort. We loved the grille bar on the Beach and spent a lot of time there ! We were really impressed with the evening entertainment in the resort .
Santa Maria really gives you a taste of Island life and its beach is absolutely beautiful, we loved watching the activity on the pier, the local fishermen and the ladies selling that days catch and just wandering around the streets. Dont be daunted when you first visit as everyone was friendy enough and we spent some lovely lazy days there.
A week wasnt long enough and we do hope to return soon, the only negative was that the hotel isnt particuarly well set up for non all inclusive guests using the villas, in respect to buying drinks over the counter etc but we overcame that and Alison will pass that observation on. Couldnt recommend this place and villa highly enough it was idylic.
Hi Alison, we had an absolutely fantastic time at the villa. Really spacious, much more than the pictures show. Erin really loved your pool and the guys had a great time at the Tortuga pool. The stair gates were super to keep Lyall upstairs, as I mentioned he likes to have a stroll in his sleep so thanks so much for getting them over in time for our holiday. What about the kids club though, James and I really enjoyed the quiet of the pool while the kids were looked after - best 11 euros we spent :-) We found the beach you recommended too, took us about 5 minutes walk even with Erin draggng her heals although the pictures we took on Tortuga beach itself, right outside the house turned out great - our friends can hardly believe we spent a fortnight in paradise!!!! so expect a few calls from them for next year :-) We'll email some over for your website if you like.
Anyway, James is due back from a late meeting at work so must go and get ready. Thanks so much for a wonderful fortnight.
