We wanted a relaxing holiday doing nothing much and that was what we had. The apartment was well situated with very good views of the beach. The place was clean and the bathroom and bedroom looked recently refurbished. The block itself was well looked after and whilst we did not use the pool it looked clean and inviting. It was a walk of about 500 yards into Santa Maria centre although there are a number of restaurants within 200 yards of the apartment block - two right outside!
We had a great week in James’s apartment. It was clean and spacious and well equipped. We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the large balcony. The 2 swimming pools at the hotel were great — although a little cold! But OK once you got in.... Ponta Preta beach was fantastic - biggest waves we’ve ever seen - it was hard to get my 2 teenage boys out of the water. We ate out every night at different restaurants in Santa Maria which was a 5 minute taxi ride. Lots to choose from - they were all good. New Year’s Eve we enjoyed fireworks on the beach. We all loved it and will definitely return to Cape Verde. The guaranteed sunshine and no jet lag in particular is a big bonus.
