“lovely relaxing place”
Reviewed 8 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Me and my husband really liked staying at Philip's place. It was clean,tidy and everything worked the way how it was supposed to. Philip is a great host,one of the best we have ever had!very hands on,any question you might have he will reply within few minutes! also big thumbs up to Lorena (house manager) who waited for us at the apartment (transfers also organised by Philip!!) and kindly took us to the centre and showed us places where to have a nice meal!she also arranged for someone to come to tell us about all the available trips:) if you are after nice relaxing and quiet place dont look anywhere else!:-)

“Best place to stay in Santa Maria”
Reviewed 5 December 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

Lorena (the house manager) picked us up at the airport and drove us to the beautiful tropical resort. The apartment was very clean and Philip answered all question we had during our stay immediately via WhatsApp. The pool is nice and has some shadow places around. The beach is close and easy to reach (even our younger daughter (2 1/2 years) could walk the way). The beach is really beautiful and not many people around. We loved our stay there and would recommend it to everybody. It is quiet as it is not directly in the city Santa Maria but close enough to enjoy all the bars and restaurants as well.

“Best apartments!”
Reviewed 19 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I have never seen before such a good treatment to clients. Nuno Reis (man on reception) found the best and cheap transfer for us, gave us a piece of advice about where to go and see on Sal. It was a pleasure to have a deal with him.
The apartments have a lot of space. It's new and clear with nice furniture. It takes 3-5 minutes to get to the beach.
Saved to my favorites for next time.

“My family enjoyed every minute of our stay in Santa Maria”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We found in Tropical Resort everything we had come for. The flat was very nice and comfortable, all the devices worked perfectly. The area around the pool and the garden are very beautiful and clean. My family enjoyed every minute of our stay in Santa Maria. Philip was contactable at all time, and everything went well!

“Excellent accommodation”
Reviewed 4 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This was my first visit to the island of Sal and therefore my first visit to this apartment. I certainly hope I will get to return.
The apartment is well appointed and has a lovely patio that gets the morning sun and makes a lovely place to enjoy a sunny, relaxing breakfast. Being on the ground floor, it offers easy access to the tropical gardens and the swimming pool.
The bed was extremely comfortable and apartment was very quiet at night, all leading to good sleeping conditions.
The development is attractive and there are bars and shops close by.
Sal offers marvellous beaches, excellent weather and plenty of activities to enjoy, such as quad-biking, kite-surfing, swimming and surfing. There are good restaurants and bars, offering variety to suit all travellers.

“Holiday in Sal”
Reviewed 8 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

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!

“Spacious, clean appartment”

person found this review helpful

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!
