Me and my partner (both ages 24) went here for a week in early may! Weather was great, at least 30 degrees everyday! Tip: when we booked the garopa hotel was £90 more expensive, don't do it, there's no difference and there connected! Food wasn't bad, a bit repetitive but definitely tasty. Pool areas were great and never had a problem with getting a lounger for the day! All inclusive lunch menu was same daily pasta, pizza, hot dog, burger, chips and salad however after breakfast u don't want too much anyways. We hired a car for €60 which was brilliant although if going to sea the sharks etc don't stop and ask for directions with locals as they ask u but then give u a tour for 'free' which u then end up paying €20pp!! A walk into Santa Maria is well worth it and the water near the fish market is beautiful, well worth an afternoon there! Wouldn't go back to Cape Verde as once uve been for a week that's it really how well worth it for a week away! Was a great holiday!
