“Great apartment”
Reviewed 20 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at the apartment for 8 days and it was great. Nice flat close to the pool in a very nice hotel complex. The owner's communication was very supportive and helpful as well. The only thing which we would probably recommend if you book the apartment is to take/ buy washing up liquid and sponges as this is not provided. Overall great stay outside of Santa Maria with friendly staff and owners!

“Everything we were looking for!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The apartment and the Mélia Tortuga Hotel are extremely well maintained. Both Judith as the owner as well as the staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly so that we felt welcome at any time during our 2-week stay. Judith sends out a long and very informative information e-mail with interesting details about e.g. transfer from the airport, where to buygroceries, nice restaurants in St. Maria, etc.

The apartment is located on the ground floor about 20m from the main pool of the Mélia. There is quite a bit of activity at the pool during the day, but even though we were more looking for quiet relaxation when in the apartment (we were on Sal for scuba diving) we were not disturbed at any time.

The beach is roughly 150m away - excellent for sun-bathing with nice beds and umbrellas. As there are stones in the water making it difficult to enter and exit the water at the Mélia beach, we mostly went to St. Maria where our dive club was for beach days.

All in all we had a very nice holiday an a big part of that was how perfectly everything worked with the apartment and feeling very much at home there.

If we go back to Sal, we would again stay in the very same apartment.

Liked best: The relaxed feel about both the resort and Cape Verde as a whole.
Liked least: That the sea was a bit to rough for my liking. Lovely pool though!
