The hotel is a small place and the staff are very friendly. Our room was simply furnished which we liked. The pool and surrounding area was kept immaculate. Our upstairs room had an area outside furnished with deckchairs where we enjoyed the morning sun.

we were aware of Cape Verde's lack of water and its still developing tourist industry so were not expecting the european/british hotel experience. We were very pleased we chose Dunas rather than the all inclusive hotels on offer. we wanted a restful sunfilled break and that is exactly what we got.

This hotel is on the outskirts of Santa Maria, a 20 minute walk to the center. Therefore it is really quiet, especially at night. The rooms are of a high standard, clean and well kept. There is a mini bar with water, snacks and some alcoholic beverages. But, as always, the items are a bit pricey, it's much cheaper to...

Rooms are spacious but lack a bit in wardrobe/dresser space. The bathrooms are adequate but could do with a make-over. Hot water isn't alway available when they make the switch between the roof water heater and the regular heater. Housekeeping does a good job. Airco works perfect. Minibar is stocked and works good enough. TV is a joke tho, no...
