“Great Villa & great location”
Reviewed 8 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

A great 3 bed Villa & great location. Really nice to have a private garden and pool, within a hotel complex, so the best of both worlds.

“Just Right”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The villa was very well furnished with comfy beds and all the bits and bobs you would need for a self catering stay on Sal. As it turned out, we took advantage of the all inclusive package available at the superb Melia Dunas resort with the villa is part of, so didn't actually use the catering facilities as much as we thought.
The beds are exceptionally comfy and all four of us slept very well each night with no unwelcome visitors either - Mosquitos.
There is air con if you need it, a washing machine which is a god send and plenty of water for showers.
The plunge pool is fantastic too and we ended up for the last few days of our holiday using the garden, loungers and pool at the villa rather than the main hotel which was great.
There is building work going on opposite the villa for a new 7 start hotel due to open at the end of the year but the noise from this was minimal and it certainly didn't bother us.
All in all, a fantastic experience made all the better by the efficiency of the owner Andrew in getting all the necessary bits to us in a timely manner. We will be back!

“Perfect winter sun retreat”
Reviewed 3 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This villa is situated nicely on the Dunas Resort overlooking the beach. It's very modern, clean and fully equipped. Very spacious for a couple and would comfortably accommodate a family. The hotel on the resort is still being built, but there's minimal noise and the public areas of the completed resort are well maintained and secure. A taxi from the nearby hotel Melia Tortuga will take you into town for €3 and return€4 (if it's dark) the town Santa Maria is a 5 minute taxi. There you will find bars and restaurants. Some overlooking the sea. Go to Tam Tams Irish bar for nice food and cheap drinks. Very friendly staff. A lot of watersports are available and some lovely beaches. Andrew who rents the villa has been first rate with information and communication. If you want 30 degrees Sun in march when it's snowing in England it's well worth the 6 hour flight. Be careful with the clouds and the wind as they are misleading and I got quite burnt on day 1. Lol.

“Excellent villa near superb beach”
Reviewed 18 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

person found this review helpful

This is a beautifully furnished, very new and clean villa just afew minutes from Santa Maria. It has a garden with splash pool and sun loungers - great for families or a couple who want some outdoor space and privacy. There is a communal swimming pool about 2 minutes walk away, which was warm in November. From here you have direct access to a large and quiet beach, or you can walk afew minutes to the Tortuga hotel with its beach bar and facilities. From the Tortuga hotel you can also get taxis to Santa Maria for €3. The villa is very well appointed, 3 bedrooms (one with own terrace facing the sea) and 3 bathrooms. Windows have mosquito nets. There is a large TV plus another one in the main bedroom. Aircon throughout, although I didn't use it, just let the breeze drift through. Andy the owner was very helpful with the booking and arrangements.
