About Michael

Michael is a young professional who enjoys travelling and loves the sun - hence the name of the apartment Sol Amante.

Since the purchase of the apartment in 2009 Michael has welcomed guests from all over Europe from Netherlands, Germany, France, Norway, Latvia as well as UK.

Michael purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Michael chose Cape Verde

It enjoys the sun 365 days a year and averages 27 degrees year round with an A1 location by the pool and close to the beach. Modern design and sophisticated.

What makes this apartment unique

By the pool on the ground floor and designed with our guests in mind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have just returned from a two week stay in Sol Amante on the island of Sal. I went with my husband and our 12 year old daughter. We specifically chose Cape Verde as we wanted somewhere quiet, but with the facilities you would expect in a top class resort.

The apartment is right next to one of the resort's swimming pool. This was a huge bonus as we could keep popping back to the apartment, and could easily get the sun loungers that we wanted each day. This pool is the quietest in the resort, so beautifully relaxing. We could easily walk the few minutes to the busier pool if we fancied a cocktail at the swim up bar!

We decided to go for the all inclusive option as we wanted a stress free holiday. The food was a good standard in all of the restaurants, and the buffet restaurant, Spices, was a particular favourite with our daughter. I would say that the all inclusive option is fairly good value for money, although we were surprised that our 12 year old was charged the same as an adult (around 69 Euros a day)

To return to the apartment, it is modern and well-equipped. The beds were the comfiest we have ever had on a holiday and we all slept like logs! There is air conditioning in the main part of the apartment and in the master bedroom. We only really needed to use the unit in the living area as it was very effective.

Michael was a huge help in booking our holiday and in securing information for us about the area, such as a reputable diving company for my husband and daughter. We were also able to contact him during our stay and he was very quick in responding each time. Cannot fault this service.

We would definitely return to the Tortuga again. The only thing we might have to consider next time is a place with more than one bathroom, particularly when sharing with a teenage girl! However, the location of Sol Amante and the efficient service we received from Michael is certainly a good trade-off!

Sol Amante does what it says on the tin !

  • 5 of 5

Wow !! Sol Amante is everything we wanted for our honeymoon and more. Definitely the best apartment on the resort - very clean, spacious and modern and ten out of ten to Michael for surprising us with a wonderful welcome pack. The fresh ground coffee was very much appreciated to start the day. We had a couple of all inclusive days in the resort and also chose to self cater as well as eat out. We would highly recommend the morabeza restaurant (the upstairs one) as the food was simply amazing (especially the chocolate mouse) - orgasmic as my hubby would say ;-). If you like kite surfing like we do a short ride by taxi (3 euros) gets you there in 5 minutes - breath taking beach. If you wish to have a fishing trip or any other activities the couple who run the tourist information office - Jeannette and her partner (based in the hut opposite where the bus stops from Melia tortuga in Santa Maria) are very helpful and pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would highly recommend Sol Amante to anyone who enjoys relaxation and peace but loves fun too.

Great break for sun and sea

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week in April, we were in the sea almost everyday and great to get away for some sun and relaxation.

The beach about 10-15 min walk towards Santa Maria is excellent, very few people, nice waves, no rocks, nice water temperature and a pleasant café.

We ate in Santa Maria most nights 3-4 euro for a taxi which are always available, the restaurant at Odjo d Agua Hotel has a stunning setting perched over the sea and we went there a couple of time.

As has been mentioned in other reviews the area outside the apartment is excellent providing sun and shade all day and right next to the pool. Highly recommended and we may well be back in the future.

True Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sol Amante ! We had the most amazing holiday here. The property is situated on Sal Island. The property is tucked away on a private side of the resort which gives it a very exclusive feel. This was for me the quintessential Cape Verde experience.

We stayed in Sol Amante which has the most amazing location. We went on a great tour with C Riders when we stayed there - we saw pilot whales and flying fish! Sol Amante has got everything you need. TV, aircon, full kitchen, internet etc. It is modern and we felt very well looked after.

Sal island has an “untouched” feel to it. There’s lots to do on the island. Number one for me was the snorkeling. We lived in the water while we were there. We spent every evening sipping drinks in the shallows. If you swim a bit further out you can get the full on snorkeling experience. We saw massive schools of tropical fish of every variety.

Sol Amante filled all our tick boxes for the perfect holiday. Relaxation, beauty, romance and adventure. Sol Amante made us fall in love with Cape Verde and we will be planning another trip soon.

I wish I could give 6 stars

  • 5 of 5

Sol Amante is the most amazing destination. It was exactly as described on the homeaway website. The service was excellent from the moment we arrived at the airport and were greeted by our driver. He took us straight to Sol Amante where we were met by their representative Yvonne who showed us around our beautiful accommodation and answered all our questions. Sol Amante was spotlessly clean throughout and we could see the owner had paid a lot of attention to preparing the property to an excellent standard.

We enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing stay. Pictures on line or even the ones that I took don't do this place any justice. The finest beach on the island - very clean and inviting. We were very pleased with the entire vacation. Thank you to everyone at Sol Amante see you soon VERY VERY soon. Thank you so much from the cold end of the earth

Unforgettable holiday - home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I've never known a place to be better in real like than in photos. Usually holiday brochures can make any place look great, but Sol Amante in the Melia Tortuga resort is truly 5*! The apartment is bright, spacious and a home away from home. Michael has thought of everything, from the beautiful welcome pack with freshly ground coffee and tea, to the DVDs, games and toys for young children. The patio is literally a stones throw from the quiet pool, so you're guaranteed a sun lounger in the morning. We had drinks and food on the patio at night, which was lovely. We also got dressed up in our party gear one night and went to the champagne bar, where we danced until the early hours. It's so lovely to have something like that on the resort, as getting back at 3 am was easy, as our apartment was a short walk away. We did a few days self catering and a few days all inclusive, which worked well for us. If you want more time to swim and sunbathe and aren't a big eater, then self catering is definitely the way to go, as it gives you more freedom and could work out a lot cheaper if there are more of you. There is a supermarket only a five minute walk away from the resort, so it's easy to stock up with food and Michael's apartment has everything you could possibly need when it comes to cooking/baking. All in all, we had a wonderful and relaxing time and didn't want to leave. I'd definitely recommend quad biking as it's a great adventure and good value for what you get. Some of the other activities are a bit pricey, but it depends on what you want to do. Thank you Michael, we'll definitely look to come back in the future, as Cape Verde is one place we'll never forget. It's so tranquil and unspoilt and the resort is definitely one of the best, if not the best on the island in terms of design and facilities. It's clean, safe and well managed. We couldn't have asked for more.

Perfect for an intimate and peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay at Sol Amante and can only endorse the comments made by everyone else who has stayed here. Comfy beds and fabulous shower made for a relaxing stay. Our private patio had the most delightful view of the beautiful gardens and the quiet swimming pool. The food at every meal was 1st class, especially dinner. I have never eaten so much fish but enjoyed it so much that i chose it every evening!

We found all the staff a pleasure to meet and chat to, and all provided us with a cheery professionalism.

There were also little thoughtful touches including the solar lamps on the terrace which meant we could always find Sol Amante no matter where we were on the resort.

We would highly recommend this property for your holiday.

Sal is one of the ten islands in Cape Verde which are located in the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of Africa. The property is right beside one of the most beautiful unspoilt beaches in the World. You can enjoy the caribbean climate and average temperatures of 27 degrees all year round without the long haul flight. Cape Verde is on the same latitude as St Lucia so enjoys a similar warm climate without the rain with a pleasant breeze which provides a superb location for kite/win surfing.
