Sam as a great host, proactively sorted out transfer from the airport with lovely dependable driver (we also used for a other pick ups and trips). Super clean with everything you need. The boiler started leaking and Sam has his local team have it replaced in a few hours (that's pretty impressive in Cape Verde!). Pool is lovely and quiet. Beach bars in front do great food. Very short walk into town and 5 minutes to 'the pier' for freshly caught Tuna (mmmm, delicious). If you're heading to Sal, I couldn't recommend Sam's place more. Thanks!
This resort is a short hop from the airport (but not too close). The gardens, pool and apartments are well tended. The apartment is roomy and well equipped especially with comfy patio furniture for lazing around or dining. At this time of the year the closest supermarket was in Santa Maria, a 40 or so minute walk, or a €4 Euro taxi ride. The resort is adjacent to the beach and a 20 min walk will get you to Bo Beach Bar or Ponta Preta Beach Bar both serving good food and drink at reasonable prices.
We had a marvellous taxi driver called Silvino - reliable & helpful. Reception have his number.
The weather was hot and sunny but most days we had some cloud and a breeze, just perfect.
Ask reception for recommendations for restaurants in town. They will also make reservations for you.
We had a great holiday and will return.
