“A lovely relaxing holiday in the sun”
Reviewed 28 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We visited Philip’s apartment in March for ten days and had a lovely relaxing holiday. We were met at the airport without any problems and the transfer which was arranged by Philip took about half an hour. The apartment was very well located and clean and tidy and had everything we needed. There was a very nice terrace with a view over the swimming pool - a nice place to sit with a glass of wine! We did not cook but ate out at some very nice restaurants all within walking distance. There are also small local supermarkets round the corner where you can buy wine, milk, cheese, nibbles, rolls etc . We went on a very enjoyable tour of the island that was arranged for us by Gil and walked to the botanical gardens which took us just over an hour. The white sandy beaches were beautiful and very uncrowded and only a few minutes walk from the apartment.

“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed 23 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

This place was perfect for a quiet holiday get away, very close to the beach and the town centre. Philip was also a great host with quick responses and very helpful information on the local area. We hope to return again in the future and would highly recommend.

The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable. With a great pool area. Set within a lovely, quiet apartment block, a short walk from the gorgeous Santa Maria beach, small supermarket and restaurants.

“My wife and I have already decided that we will definitely return”
Reviewed 4 April 2018 for a stay in January 2018

These apartments are located 15 minutes walk from the very center of the town of Santa Maria, in the area where the hotels are located, they are built on the 1st line. On the 2nd line is a group of apartments, among which is the Tropical Resort! The place is safe, comfortable, near the representative offices of tourist companies that offer excursions around the island, laundry, small shops with food, water and alcohol, bars and restaurants, where there are many tourists. Regular flight Tap Portugal arrives on the island not quite successfully, late at night, so there were minor concerns with obtaining keys and chek in the apartments. However, the fears were in vain, since we were met (at an additional cost) at the airport and the driver already had keys from the apartments. In the morning the representative came directly to us and told about all the nuances, helped to buy a SIM card for the Internet (very inexpensive 8 euros for 3 GB). In the apartment there is a router, which allows you to connect several devices. Thank you for a few bottles of water, kindly left in the fridge. Territory Tropical Resort with a nice swimming pool, shower, sun beds, well-groomed, very close to the restaurant with Italian cuisine. But we took advantage of the pool once, because we arrived to the Ocean, but some people were constantly resting by the pool. To the beach 5-7 minutes, where you can rent umbrellas and sun loungers. The ocean, even despite the wind in the winter, was beautiful. In short, everything was great, the food can be cooked in the kitchen, which has everything you need (except the dishwasher) with a full set of dishes, pans. What can be improved? by and large, nothing, but if absolutely to be picky, then we lacked several hooks for towels and clothes in the bathroom, individual towels for the beach and pool and a small low water tap at the entrance to the apartments or the resort to wash their feet after the beach. The owner of the apartment Philip, thank you very much, because he and his representative Gil were almost always on call and at any time were ready to help with advice or business. But since we are experienced travelers (before Cape Verde visited 123 countries of the world), we did not bother with our questions! Philip, my wife and I have already decided that we will definitely return, maybe we’ll take friends or parents with us!

“Excellent holiday”
Reviewed 29 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

A quiet location, very clean, and Philip was very quick to respond to any of our questions and he also gave very helpful local tips! Close to the beach and the bars and restaurants just around the corner serve nice food and have a good atmosphere. However they are slightly over priced compared to the main town presumably due to close proximity to the beach hotels, but the main town is only a five minute walk away. We would highly recommend staying here.

“Another visit to Tropical Resort”
Reviewed 15 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

This was not the first time I have been to Philip's apartment in Tropical Resort. It is a comfortable, well equipped apartment with a lovely patio facing east, which makes it a great place to eat breakfast. The gardens and pool are lovely and a very pleasant place to relax. The beautiful beach of Santa Maria is only 300m away and stretches for kilometres in each direction.

The town of Santa Maria is just about 10 minutes walk away and is a colourful, lively place.

This stay was for the first week of a holiday in Cape Verde, which also took in the islands of Fogo and Brava, before ending up at Philip's other property on the island of Maio.

“Peaceful yet convenient location”
Reviewed 26 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

The apartment was clean, comfortable and excellent location - close to beach yet able to walk to centre of Santa Maria. The pool and gardens are attractive and well kept. It was peaceful and quiet during the day and night. We were very unlucky with the weather and the pool was rather cold for swimming. The owner and staff were very helpful.
