Philip purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Philip chose Santa Maria
This property is ideal for those wanting a holiday in a warm climate, with the options of beach and water sports as well as more developed entertainment options close at hand. Sal has colourful towns such as Santa Maria, which has pretty squares lined with cafes. The reason we decided to invest in Tropical resort is because Imobrisa Lda (the company who built it) quite simply are the best construction company on the island. You will see this with the quality of workmanship if you visit.
What makes this Apartment unique
This apartment offers the chance of a quiet holiday enjoying the warm weather, sunshine, small towns, pleasant cafes, restaurants, but also provides the opportunity to participate in a number of beach-based sports, such as surfing, kite surfing, jet-skiing, windsurfing, snorkeling and deep sea fishing. The unique benefits of Tropical resort are the pool, the tropical gardens and its closeness to the best beach in Cape Verde

Fun in the sun!
we have just returned from a sun drenched week at this lovely apartment with our 4 year old and 14week old.
Everything went smoothly from start to finish with communication being exceptional from Philip and Roger from my initial enquiry, right through the duration of our stay. I was informed early on that a cot would not be available so planned to take a travel cot, however, the month prior to our stay Roger took a travel cot out to Sal with him specifically to accommodate us. This was a huge help as it meant we did not have to lug one around the airport with two kids!
The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed for our self catering stay from hair dryers to bottle openers, cheese graters to clothes airers.
The local shops are not what you would find in the U.K but with some adaptation and a little imagination you can still create some great meals.
Eating out is easy with many resteraunts and bars within walking distance.
There is nothing to do for children on the island but the gorgeous beach and the lovely pool area (which we had to ourselves on a few afternoons!) were more than enough to entertain our 4yr old for the week.
We did wander in to town where there were some lovely little shops but again, for us, it was all about the beach and pool.
November was a perfect time to visit as there were so few people around yet the weather was amazing!
We did not go on any trips as we decided it was too much with a small baby but would have liked to have done an island tour if it was just the two of us.
All in all a great, relaxing break away, even with 2 kids!
Thank you very much for this lovely review. We are delighted that you had such a good holiday. We hope that we will be able to welcome you back again sometime, either to Tropical Resort or to our villa on the island of Maio.
Philip and Roger
This place was perfect for a quiet holiday get away, very close to the beach and the town centre. Philip was also a great host with quick responses and very helpful information on the local area. We hope to return again in the future and would highly recommend.
Thanks for your review, we look forward to seeing you again...
Great value, relaxing and comfortable stay
The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable. With a great pool area. Set within a lovely, quiet apartment block, a short walk from the gorgeous Santa Maria beach, small supermarket and restaurants.
Thank you so much Emilee. So glad that you enjoyed your stay.
Quiet and peaceful location not far from beach
The apartment was accurately described and clean. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The apartment location is excellent, being close enough to the beach and some good local shops. Views to the rear of the property weren't optimum, but the view from the patio (of the pool and gardens) was very nice and we had breakfast outdoors most mornings. We found two or three nice places to eat out, one of which - 'By Valeria' - does truly excellent pizzas and is just around the corner. Cocktails and food in Cam's, at the other end of town, were also very fine. Overall, we'd be very happy to recommend this apartment to our friends at the price asked.
Thank you Geoff and Sue. We are glad that you enjoyed your holiday, even if the weather was not up to usual standards.
Fantastic Christmas and New Years Eve on Sal
We had a fantastic Christmas and New Years Eve on Sal, Cape Verde. We stayed in the well equipped apartment of Philip and Roger in Tropical Resort, Santa Maria. Within walking distance of the beaches and the village. Sun, sea, beach and a nice atmosphere, a real "No Stress" holiday.
Thank you for the nice review. We are glad that you enjoyed your holiday in Tropical resort.
Lovely apartment, gardens and pool, close to beach
This was my second visit to this apartment. It is well equipped, comfortable and the east facing patio is a great place to enjoy meals, especially breakfast. The fabulous beach is just a short walk away. There are two small shops nearby that can provide the essentials, and there are three or four restaurants closeby too. I look forward to going back.
