On arrival at Village de Santo, we were warmly welcomed by hosts Bev and Nabil who did their utmost to ensure our stay was enjoyable. And it was. The staff always greeted us with huge smiles: Valerie, Rose, Charlie, Dave, Barry, the ladies who cleaned the rooms, the gardener, the bus driver, everybody. The restaurant provided delicious and filling food at reasonable prices as well as great entertainment. Our room was spacious, immaculately clean and well ventilated with many shutters and flyscreens on the windows. Upstairs, the bed was comfortable. The pool is only a few metres from the door and is surrounded by palms and exotic flowers that add colour, shade and privacy. The walk into town and back soon had us slowing to the local rhythm and gave us the chance to take in the surroundings. As has been said elsewhere, there are always plenty of cheap taxis going past the resort.
We were privileged to be among the first guests of Mango Village just across the road from the resort. Bev is working with the villagers to develop a sustainable tourism project that will provide work and help retain traditional culture through sharing with visitors. Bev and Nabil’s commitment to the people of Santos meant we as guests were able to see and experience the local culture. We also enjoyed speaking French with Nabil and many of the staff.
