I stayed in 17b owned by Ocean Club Holidays. My view was overlooking the pool and the beach and I have to say it was fantastic. The apartment was clean and well furnished and the staff friendly and helpful, although they didn't speak much english we made ourselves understood. It was quiet 24/7 security so no need to worry. In my opinion it's the best place to stay, very central to the town, 2 mins to the town for restuarants and supermarkets. Blu bar at the end of the street near the pier was lovely and a place where alot of the expats go, they really made me feel very welcome. Locals are friendly although watch the senegals they are alright but have lots of tricks to entice you to their shops, just say hello and keep walking if you don't want to buy. Santa Maria is lovely, there is alot of building going on and it will change over the next 5 years so go now to experience it. We went past the big hotels concrete jungles so glad we didn't stay there. Fine if you want to stay in the hotel all the time, but if you want to experience real Cape Verde stay at Porto Antigo.
