Great Villa to enjoy the real Cape Verde

  • 5 of 5

Villa is well appointed and has all you need. It's modern, clean and clinical and whilst it is to standard you could find in many places around the world you should book this villa for the opportunity it brings to enjoy Santa Maria, Sal and Cape Verde.

It's on an all inclusive resort and we had no problem enjoying the pools, bars and entertainment and the resort next door allows you to enjoy the 'Bikini Beach' club too.

The walk along the shoreline to Santa Maria is breathtaking. It must be a couple of miles so on the sand is fairly hard going but we took an hour to hour half walking it several times, enjoying the kite surfer's spectacle and breaking waves along the way. Santa Maria has a nice mix of modern and very traditional bars, cafes, restaurants. It's not the Mediterranean but we loved it for its developing charm and the sheer friendliness and joy of the local people. Every local bar even the ice cream parlour has some music on the go come the evening and pedestrians take over the streets at weekends. Forget all inclusive, book direct with this villa and enjoy the real charm of the locals in Santa Maria.

The lunar landscape of Sal was brilliant for the quad bike hire we did and we enjoyed a sailing trip on Cuba Libre.

No car is needed. Taxis are plentiful and from airport was 15 euro and taxi to Santa Maria was 3 euro during the day and 4 at night. Euro and escudos were used in parallel so need to get local currency. We self catered a few nights and the supermarket, Cazu in Santa Maria was adequate for this or buy a fresh fish direct from the fishermen on the pier. Enjoy.

Lovely villa on outskirts of Santa Marie

  • 4 of 5

Great relaxing villa. Breakfast in the garden and afternoons on the bedroom balcony overlooking the ocean. Was a little hard to get fresh food to cook, only I supermarket in Santa Maria with limited things but can get all the basics. Was a little windy on the beach some days so we sunbathed on the balcony which was sheltered by the wind. The resort was lovely but glad we weren’t all inclusive, plastic glasses and mass cooked food not our thing, they’re some lovely restaurants in Santa Maria a 5 minute taxi ride away so wasn’t a problem, would happily recommend

Amazing!!! Exceeded any expectations I had

  • 5 of 5

I came with 4 adults and my 5 year old daughter the villa on arrival was immaculate spacious and well worth every penny. When it says you have views of the sea you really do the beach is a 2 min walk if that and on the balcony you have a view of the beach and sea it’s beautiful... the resort is beautiful aswell 2 large pools 2 kids pools and you have your own pool in the garden. I have nothing bad to say about the villa the communication from the owner was brilliant sent very helpful information in regards to my stay. If you are looking to book a few things I would avoid are the men on the beach selling boat trips/ jet ski experiences they pay the security to walk about for 30 minutes so you think they are genuine and I would avoid the waterside restaurant it was slow and the food wasn’t great. The other restaurants on the resort are amazing we ate in them all they didn’t charge for my daughter who’s 5 you have to book to get into the restaurants. We will all defiantly be coming back none of us have a bad thing to say. In another review it mentions the bikini beach music which yes you can hear but it really isn’t bad I thought it would be awful but it’s really not so don’t let that review put you of the weather was beautiful most the staff at the resort were brilliant!!! We will all be coming back in October :)

Lovely villa in excellent position beach and bars within a minutes walk, what Moe can you ask for.

  • 4 of 5

The only thing that marred the holiday was the overly loud Bikini Beach club next door to the complex, booming out extremely loud music till the early hours of the morning necessitating closure of all Windows ..... shame.

Heerlijk weekje Sal

  • 4 of 5

Hebben een heerlijk verblijf gehad in dit mooie huis. Ligt vlak bij zee en wil je gebruik maken van de faciliteiten van het park dan kan dat allemaal. Santa Maria is prima te bereiken met de taxi als je ‘s avonds daar wilt gaan eten. Het was een heerlijke plek om een weekje lekker te ontspannen.
