About Philip

My name is Philip, that is me on the left. It is our aim to make your holiday as close to perfect as possible. We are passionate about Cape Verde, its people and its potential. If you haven’t been before, you must! If you have been, we are confident we can show you more. Cape Verde is an amazingly diverse holiday destination. Please ask any questions you like…

Philip purchased this Apartment in 2008

Why Philip chose Santa Maria

This property is ideal for those wanting a holiday in a warm climate, with the options of beach and water sports as well as more developed entertainment options close at hand. Sal has colourful towns such as Santa Maria, which has pretty squares lined with cafes. The reason we decided to invest in Tropical resort is because Imobrisa Lda (the company who built it) quite simply are the best construction company on the island. You will see this with the quality of workmanship if you visit.

What makes this Apartment unique

This apartment offers the chance of a quiet holiday enjoying the warm weather, sunshine, small towns, pleasant cafes, restaurants, but also provides the opportunity to participate in a number of beach-based sports, such as surfing, kite surfing, jet-skiing, windsurfing, snorkeling and deep sea fishing. The unique benefits of Tropical resort are the pool, the tropical gardens and its closeness to the best beach in Cape Verde

                                                                A lovely apartment in a great location close to the beach

                                                                Roger S.

                                                                The apartment is comfortable and well appointed. The terrace is the perfect place to eat breakfast, as it gets the morning sun. The gardens are lovely and well looked after. The pool is also lovely. There is also a new restaurant alongside the two existing ones, very close by that was a great place to eat and stocks a large variety of beers, including many from Belgium. All three restaurants offer different things.

                                                                The apartment is as described in the listing and was clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful and so was the house manager. I would certainly recommend it to others.

                                                                Perfect getaway

                                                                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.

                                                                Great value, relaxing and comfortable stay

                                                                Thank you so much Emilee. So glad that you enjoyed your stay.

                                                                Kind regards


                                                                Quiet and peaceful location not far from beach

                                                                Geoff K.

                                                                The apartment was accurately described and clean. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The apartment location is excellent, being close enough to the beach and some good local shops. Views to the rear of the property weren't optimum, but the view from the patio (of the pool and gardens) was very nice and we had breakfast outdoors most mornings. We found two or three nice places to eat out, one of which - 'By Valeria' - does truly excellent pizzas and is just around the corner. Cocktails and food in Cam's, at the other end of town, were also very fine. Overall, we'd be very happy to recommend this apartment to our friends at the price asked.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                We had a fantastic Christmas and New Years Eve on Sal, Cape Verde. We stayed in the well equipped apartment of Philip and Roger in Tropical Resort, Santa Maria. Within walking distance of the beaches and the village. Sun, sea, beach and a nice atmosphere, a real "No Stress" holiday.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thank you for the nice review. We are glad that you enjoyed your holiday in Tropical resort.

                                                                Kind regards


                                                                Lovely apartment, gardens and pool, close to beach


                                                                This was my second visit to this apartment. It is well equipped, comfortable and the east facing patio is a great place to enjoy meals, especially breakfast. The fabulous beach is just a short walk away. There are two small shops nearby that can provide the essentials, and there are three or four restaurants closeby too. I look forward to going back.


                                                                Santa Maria, Cape Verde
