L appartement est exactement comme sur les photos ☺
Endroit parfait pour faire du kitesurf et du surf. Beau complexe à taille humaine.
Thank you for your review.
I'm pleased that you enjoyed the apartment and the resort. We are always trying to make sure that all our guestss enjoy thier stay so its nice to hear that you have.
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the use of you gorgeous apartment at The Tortuga resort in Santa Maria. The apartment was like a home from home, so nice to feel relaxed indoors with the lovely sitting room and kitchen area, instead of feeling like you were hanging around a bedroom! Stepping out onto the spacious balcony for breakfast or an early evening drink was fabulous, the position meaning it was very private, yet we could still sit and people watch.
We didn't use the all inclusive as after reading trip adviser reviews of the restaurants we decided at 80 euros each per day, it wouldn't really be good value for us as we wouldn't eat/drink enough to cover that cost. We ate out each night in Santa Maria and had some lovely meals with cocktails to follow in the Ocean Cafe most nights! Taxis were cheap enough at 4 euros each way and readily available at the hotel. We did have a meal in the complex Aqua restaurant on our last night and whilst very nice, it cost 70 euro and we had just had good food in Santa Maria for less money, so overall, we were pleased we had the freedom of going into town to try different places, as well as it being a change of scenery from the complex.
Another bonus was that we completely missed the 'beast from the east' winter storm at home. We were getting lots of contact on Facebook saying how dreadful it was, whilst we were lying on the beach with a cocktail!
I'm sure we will be booking again next time we visit Cape Verde - thanks again!

Thank you so much for your lovely review of our apartment and your holiday.
I'm so please that you both enjoyed your holiday especially the apartment.
We do try and make your stay as comfortable as possible and its nice to hear that your stay was a really nice one. I'm also so glad that you ventured out into Santa Maria in the evenings, as the restaurants are all very good and as you say, they are a lot cheaper than the resorts "all inclusive" prices.
Once again, that you for your review, its makes all the hard work worth while when I know that you had a wonderful holiday.
Spacious apartment, ideal for a couple with 2 kids, lovely balcony, well equipped kitchen.
Situated in a nice resort, 3-4euros taxi drive away to Santa Maria, 5mins walk from local mini market, pizzeria & bakery. 5mins walk to lovely beach, definite perks: use of pools, entertainment & exercise activities in resort for free! I would stay again.
Perhaps square metrage need correcting on info description, I estimate it is about 75 square meters.
Thank you for your lovely review. I'm so please that you enjoyed the apartment, as well as the facilities on the resort, like the entertainment, gym and pools and as you said they are all free. Thank you for pointing out the error regarding the square metres of the apartment, it should have read 75 not 175. Its been a pleasure having you stay with us. Kind regards. Paul
Sunshine, sea and relaxation
We had a fantastic week here. Paul was a wonderful host and responded quickly to all enquiries. The flat was great, immaculately clean and the large private balcony is a real highlight. We were looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday and this location really fit the bill.
The resort is attractive, well-maintained with swimming pools and a lovely beach. Having read some negative reviews of Tortuga Beach, I can honestly say we experienced none of these issues. Check in was fast and easy, staff were friendly (though we were not on the ‘all in’ package they treated us as valued guests). There were always sun loungers available, and although the sea immediately in front of the Tortuga has high surf and rocks, there is a gorgeous swimming ‘lagoon’ adjacent.
We got the best of both worlds with this property; taking advantage of all we wanted on the resort without the all-inclusive pricing or commitment. We registered a credit card with the reception when we checked in and this meant we had no problem buying drinks from the bar or any other little extras (e.g. on the last day we hired one of the covered ‘Bali Beds’ on the beach which was fantastic). The only challenge regarding the self-catering option was that the supermarkets are not greatly stocked. There’s a shop nearby and a great bakery and a supermarket in Santa Maria, but choices were limited, especially fresh fruit and vegetables. But we found great restaurants in town as well as an Asian restaurant (Nami) and the Bikini Beach Club next door to Tortuga beach, which we would recommend.
The late March weather was warm. The wind is strong which can be off-putting, but makes this a popular destination for kite surfers. Santa Maria has a busy beach with bars and restaurants but it doesn’t have the tacky feel of a lot of resort towns – it’s relatively quiet and suited to the older crowd. The locals were friendly, but it should be noted they are being paid almost nothing to work at these resorts and the cost of living is high. No wonder you will get approached by people trying to sell you things (which coincidentally always seem to be for sale “at their mother’s shop”!) But we never got hassled in any way. If you’re not interested you can just politely say no and they will move on, usually with a smile, saying “no stress”!
All in all, a top holiday, relaxing and a much-needed sunshiny escape from the over-long British winter.
Thank you so much for your lovely review of our apartment and your holiday. I'm so pleased that you had a great time and enjoyed your stay. Also pleased to hear that you enjoyed the resort. As you said, you have the advantage of the facilities of a 5* resort, but not having to tie yourself to the "all inclusive" package that the resort offers, as there are lots of lovely restaurants in the local town of Santa Maria which you obviously enjoyed. We do try and make your stay as comfortable as possible and it makes it all worth while when I know you had a lovely holiday. Once again, thank you for taking the time to submit your review and its been a pleasure having you stay with us. Kind regards. Paul
Beautiful apartment, great location
This beautiful apartment is, in our opinion , in the best location both within the complex and within the resort.
It has everything you need for an independent self catering holiday but near enough to the town of Santa Maria if you need to buy provisions or wish to eat out. The large veranda offers a great place to sit and read and to generally relax.
The complex is lovely and clean and all the staff are friendly and courteous Each evening there is some form of entertainment. I particularly liked the dance shows. The young entertainment staff put on a brilliant, energetic show which was a pleasure to watch.
There are accessible, easy walking routes around the island for those who like to get out and about, although most of the terrain is sand.
Paul, the owner is really helpful and considerate and is more than happy to answer all your queries
We loved it so much we have booked again for next year I can’t recommend this highly enough.
Dear Janice. Thank you so much for your lovely review of our apartment and your holiday. I'm so please to hear that you had a great holiday and you enjoyed the apartment, especially the location of it. I'm also please to hear that you enjoyed the resort and the entertainment. As you said, the Cape Verdean staff are so friendly and cant do enough for you. Thank you for your kind words about my help when making the booking, I am always try to give a good service and also making sure that all our guests have a nice stay, so its nice to know that is was appreciated. Thank you for booking again for next March and we look forward to welcoming you back again. Kind regards. Paul
Lovely family holiday in well appointed apartment
We had a lovely holiday in this two bedroom apartment. The apartment is very well equipped in a nice quiet sunny position on the alll-inclusive resort. Sitting outside on the balcony in the sun was a joy with the upstairs position affording extra privacy.
There is a nice beach at the resort but we would recommend walking 10 minutes to ponta preta beach which was gorgeous and virtually empty.
In the evenings a 5 minute taxi ride (cost 3 or 4 euro) takes you to the local town with a number of restaurant options.
Paul was very helpful throughout the process with prompt, friendly and informative replies.
There isn't a huge amount of things to do in Sal but if you are after a relaxing holiday in the sun we would recommend this as a good option !
Thank you so much for your lovely review of our apartment and your holiday. I'm please to hear that you had a great holiday and you enjoyed the apartment, especially the location of it. As you know when I sent you the info pack, I always recommend trying the local restaurants in Santa Maria, so I'm glad you did, as you get more of the local atmosphere of the Cape Verdian people than if you stayed on the resort all the time. Thank you for your kind words regarding my help throughout the process, I'm only to pleased to help anyone when booking their holidays. Once again, thank you for your lovely review, it makes it all worthwhile when I know that you have had a great time. It was a pleasure having you stay with us.
Pour ceux souhaitant juste se détendre, regardez les pêcheurs rentrer de leur pêche quotidienne sur la plage à proximité de la jetée ou promenez-vous autour des nombreux magasins d'artisanat où vous pourrez acheter bijoux africains faits main, peintures, etc.
