From the first point of contact we had all the information we needed. This place does exactly what it says , great resort, lovely pools , beautiful beach. The appartment was perfect and clean, was great to have 2 bathrooms . Island is lovely we ate out in close by Santa Maria every night and could not fault any of the food.
Have recommended to friends and family and hope to return one day.
and thank you rebbeca for letting us stay in your apartment as it had everything you need for a self catering holiday many thanks Sally Kitching
Our party traveled from the UK and had a really good week in this apartment. It was clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the location and spent a lot of time in the nearby town. It was a lovely walk along the beach or an easy taxi ride. The hospitality and customer service was great and we would recommend this property
My wife and I booked this property online, been a long time since we had done this for a property let but it worked out very well and Rebecca, the owner, was most helpful. It is a very nice apartment with 2 bedrooms (Double & twin), large lounge area with sliding doors to a good sized patio with table and chairs. As its on the first floor you have nice views to pool area and the sea, but its not overlooked. The kitchenette area is fine with cooker, fridge, microwave and plenty plates, glassware, cutlery etc in case you want to do some meals. You can sign up for all inclusive or just pay for meals on the resort but Santa Maria, 3euro taxi ride has some very nice cafés & restaurants at much more reasonable prices. There is also a nice beach bar/restaurant less than a mile along the beach that we really enjoyed. Another great beach is Kite beach where you can see lots and lots of Kite surfers, it also has a nice bar/restaurant and is only a 5Euro taxi ride. The hotel has a small gym & wifi in some areas and a nice beach area with loungers. Also various activities such as Aqua Aerobics, Volleyball, Diving instruction, etc.
If you don't want to book with Thomson we found the apartment great and for a lazy holiday in the sun Cape Verde was great, especially in January, but probably any time of year.
our stay on sal was just amazing. We went there for two weeks and found Rebecca's and Jay's apartment on this website. From the beginning they answered all our questions that we had and supported us with a lot of informations. Especially a few weeks before our they sent us a lot of explanations as well as recommendations about what to do on sal. Also during the holiday,both were really friendly when we wanted to know something and answered really quickly. One day we had a problem in on of the two bathrooms, the water container was broken and the water came through the wall. Jay was really concerned and did anything what he could do from England.the problem was fixed within two hours.
The apartment itself was big enough for four persons with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a huge living room and kitchen. You just needed 10 m to be on the pool with a pool bar. Also the sea is really close.
The hotel area is really clean and the staff really friendly. You can choose whether you want to cook for yourself or if you want to book an all-inclusive package.
We decided to take the opportunity of eating breakfast in the hotel which was good because they have a lot of different food. For example you can have sausages, pancakes, fruits, cereals, yoghurt or fresh and individual scramble eggs.
I'm the evening we tried the restaurants , that jay and Rebecca recommended to us. They were all tasty!
We also did an island tour with a cab driver who Rebecca and jay know. He spoke English and tried his best to make it an unforgettable day for us. Coming from the cold Germany in winter to a sunny island like sal really helps you to come down and relax. We had almost everyday sun and about 28 degrees.
So all in all : don't think about it to long. You will not regret to make your holidays there!
Ah last but not least, we recommend to you, to do also a daily tour to Boa Vista which is an other Cape Verde island. It is completely differnt to sal and really beautiful. You should see it !
If you have further questions about the apartment ,sal or whatever don't hesitate to text me!:)
We had a lovely week's stay in the Tortuga Beach Resort with our two boys aged 7 months and 2 years.
The apartment was perfect for our family and was just as immaculate as it looks in the pictures and was very well equipped.
We enjoyed making the most of the self catering facilities as well as taking advantage of all the fabulous restaurants located in the resort.
Rebecca was very accommodating and really helpful with the booking process. She provided very useful information about local amenities and things to do in the area.
Santa Maria is a lovely town to explore and feels very safe with gorgeous sandy beaches.
We would love to go back!
We have a stunning 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom beachside, and poolside apartment for short or long term holiday let in Cape Verde on the 5 star resort of Tortuga Beach, Ponta Preta Beach, Sal.

The islands are only 5 1/2 hours away from most european capitals and there are direct flights to Sal.It is the perfect place for you and your family to unwind,and enjoy the endless long sunny days.
Cape Verde is beautifully unspoiled and does not suffer from mass tourism or commercialism. It is a cluster of ten islands lying like a set of pearls south of Portugal and the coast of West Africa.It has only been in the last 10 years or so that its secret beauty and location has been been discovered by worldly tourists, and now every year more and more people are looking to travel to this exotic destination, without the stress and burdens of a long haul flights.

If you are into water sports- it is now one of the worlds hot spots for Kiteboarding, Wind Surfing And Fishing, or you can can just relax by one of the 4 pools, and also enjoy the 5 kilometers of beaches, which are situated right next to the apartment.
The people are a blend of Portuguese, Brazilian and African. Portuguese is their first language. The local people are warm, friendly, laid back- and very passionate about there country and what it has to offer you as a tourist. They will welcome you to their rich vibrant culture and way of life. If you are looking for a fresh new holiday experience, enjoy fine beaches, exotic blend of music,beautiful diverse scenery, wonderful fresh food, and a perfect climate then Cape Verde promises not to disappoint.
