Whether self catering or eating out, you will find everything you need here. The Resort is only a few years old, with lovely mature gardens, colourful tree and shrub lined walkways past apartment complexes, each with its own swimming pools, some with bar/restaurants and free wifi.. Ponta Preta beach is a scenic walk or free shuttle bus ride to the beautiful quiet West coast, (has a great pizza restaurant/bar). Alteratively, take the free shuttle bus to/from Santa Maria or Espargos, or a 5 min taxi/bus ride into Santa Maria town (3 or 4 euros) from just outside the complex (or use a number from the local phone supplied or from my managers, and a driver will pick you up/drop you back at your door).. There is a famous wind/kite surfing beach 15/20 mins walk or 5 mins drive away on the East coast. Each block in the complex is named after an exotic flower, and each has its own adult and children's pool and play area. Some pool bars have free wifi and bar/rests open at certain times of the day (e.g. Cactus 2 mins next door), serves meals and snacks. The VV Agua restaurant is in the central square, plus an excellent BBQ with live music most Sat nights from 7pm at the Clubhouse This airy ground floor apart has 3 patios, one from each of the two bedrooms and a large one off the sitting room overlooking the swimming pool and gardens, where you can enjoy an al fresco lunch, dinner, or just a few drinks. Mosquito screens on all patio doors and windows to enjoy open windows at all times, esp when mozzies are around (any time, but mainly Jul-Oct). The double bedroom has en-suite bathroom with ba shower, toilet, whb and bidet. The 2nd bedroom has twin beds that can be put together if required. Seperate family shower room, toilet, whb and bidet. There is a cot and high chair available for baby. All beds have the option of a mosquito net if necessary. All linen supplied but please bring your own beach towels. Linen changes/cleans can be arranged with manager for small charge on site, There is a washing m/c and line, iron and board in the apt. The kitchen is very well equipped with all mod cons, including washing machine, fridge freezer, drinking water filter tap (no carrying heavy bottled water), cafetiere, juicer, microwave, full sized cooker and hob etc. The dining table extends and can seat 8. There are 2 settees plus a large sofabed. TV, CDs and DVDs available plus various games.

As well as being airy with windows on 3 sides, there are 2 pedestal fans, an air cooler and a small personal fan if needed. Child's cot (please bring own linen) and high chair, on request. There is a gas BBQ available on the patio. Santa Maria is the nearest town (free shuttle bus from VV, or about 5 mins by taxi for €3-4 or locals bus €1 - bus - outside main gate), and is very busy with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants with an intriguing African/Portuguese influence. Exellent freshly caught fish is available straight from the town pier or market, landed by local fishermen that morning. There is a also a great variety of cuisines to suit all budgets. The safe sandy beach in Santa Maria is very popular with tourists and locals alike, with lots of sea front bars and restaurants, of varying types and price, providing main meals, snacks, or just for drinks and people watching. Sal is famous for its many water sports -scuba diving, snorkelling, deep sea & shore fishing, kite and windsurfing, plus dune buggying (although no vehicles are allowed near the loggerhead turtle nesting sites), turtle and whale watching (certain times of year). My managing agents are English/Cape Verdean and live nearby, and will give you a contact number for if any assistance or info is needed.

About the neighbourhood
Principally a beach resort with long stretches of white sand and an abundance of water sports, Sal is really an island for beach lovers as most of the island's sights and attractions can be seen in half a day. By night, Santa Maria, the main tourist area in Sal, boasts a lively atmosphere with a good choice of bars and restaurants. MORE ABOUT SAL Sal is the most developed of all the Cape Verde Islands in terms of tourism yet still has a very barren landscape. In the north of the island you will find a salt lake in an extinct volcano crater, an impressive sight. Marine life around the coast of Sal and the rest of the archipelago is high with countless species including flamboyant tropical fish, dolphins and turtles (season dependant). Live music plays a huge part in Cape Verdean cultur...
Getting around
Hire a car, dune buggy or fat bike for a day or two, or take a half day island tour - lots of happy licensed drivers in Santa Maria, or Lizy can arrange one for you on arrival. Use the free shuttle bus passes to go to Santa Maria, the beach or Espargos (the capital).
