We loved our holiday in Sal!
The appartment was very clean, and everything you needed was there. When we had questions on our first couple of days we could always ask the housemanager, he was always around. Santa Maria is a peacefull town, if you want a holiday where there are not many people around you have to go to Sal.
You are totally relaxed, and the beach is beautiful!
You can book alot of things like snorkeling, diving, driving a quat for the day etc. There are plenty of stuff to do as a tourist. The food is amazing, and not expensive, the fish is always fresh and very good.
We had a nice stay and we would definitely recommend it!! Thank you Philip to be an excellent host, you answered all of our questions and made sure we had the best stay!
We just returned from a 12 days trip to Sal. Had a splendid time over there but, if you're not a surfer or beachlover,I would recommend a stay of 10 days max.
The appartment is spacious and very clean as are the surroundings. Staff is very helpfull. The appartment is well equiped and supermarkets and not far away so you can easily get your Bread, ham, eggs and yoghurt in the morning for breakfast.
The terras on this ground floor appartment is bigger than the balconies on the first or 2nd floor.
We had a wonderfull time in this quiet and practical appartement and will certainly recommend it to our friends!
We have just come back from a wonderful Christmas and New Year's at Philip's flat in Santa Maria. We couldn't have had a nicer time there. Philip was a wonderful host; he thought of absolutely everything and went over and above our expectations, making sure we were happy before leaving and even giving us tips for where to go for New Year's Eve. The flat is very well situated, a short two minute walk to a stunning beach that goes on for miles and near to all the restaurants. It is in a quiet area so no disturbances at night when you want to relax. I would highly recommend it!
The apartment was lovely and Philip was a wonderful host. Arrived just before high season begun and so was very quiet which is not a negative. Made for a truly relaxing holiday plus the pool (which is a great feature of Tropical Resorts) wasn't overcrowded! Good location for all you'll need. Really great all round. Would stay again.
Very clean appartment, ideal also for families. My two kids enjoyed - after diving in the sea - also the pool in the evening. My wife and I could enjoy a bottlle of good Capeverdian red wine.
Very silent, short walk to the beach, good restaurants and shops around the corner, where we bought some food to cook "at home". Great Value!
We stayed at this apartment last holiday and it was excellent! The location is good, the apartment is very comfortable, clean and well furnished and Philip as a host is very attentive and thoughtful! At the time we were staying, in the beginning of April it was low season and very quiet. In the mornings I would have been the only one at the poolside. There are few good cafes nearby to have breakfast in the morning and late glass of wine or champagne before sleep. I would highly recommend this place to anyone going to Sal.
Appartment is well equiped with all kitchen appliances you need, there are plenty of soft towels (more then we needed). The beds were confortable. Flyscreens were useful because there were a lot of flies. It's about 15 minutes walk into town but it's a nice walk along the sea. There are plenty of taxis (3 euro to get to town, 12 euro to get to the airport). There are two small supermarkets and some restaurants (with free wifi) around the corner and also a laundrette (we misunderstood from a review that there was a laundry machine in the appartment - there isn't).
There are 18 (wooden - a bit hard and no matresses) sunbeds along a big pool. For us the water was to cold to swim (20°C) in February but there were people who did. The manager who was at the receptiondesk was very friendly and helpful. All adminstration (booking, etc) was correct and we got our warranty back a week after returning home.
