Lovely sunny week on the island of 'No Stress'!

  • 4 of 5

A very relaxing week on Sal, lots of sunshine & eating nothing but fish, vegetables and fruit! The apartment was great, basic but just what we needed as we spent very little time there, a comfy place to sleep and shower. It was fine for just the two of us, might have felt a little crowded if there were 4 and using the sofa bed. Also no air-con which was not a problem at this time of year as it was lovely and cool in the evenings with the trade wind blowing throughout (perfect for me as I never felt too hot lying by the pool sunbathing) but it might be warm in the summer months? Everything was clean and tidy, great to be provided with towels and the site security were friendly and helpful. The washing machine was useful and we managed to buy a small 2 load pack of washing powder from the nearest shop (left when you come out of apartments and a few buildings down). It was so close to the beach, couldn't be happier with location, and neighbouring hotel O'djo d'agua (?) which does a great buffet breakfast which you can enjoy on the terrace looking out over the sea and Santa Maria bay. We also ate there most mornings and on a few evenings and it was really good, staff were friendly and attentive. My only suggestion would be to take a small bottle of hand soap & washing up liquid, a tea towel and basics like sugar, tea/coffee, salt & pepper if you plan to cook & eat in the apartment. We didn't cook at all as there were great places to eat but the small supermarkets are expensive and didn't want to buy large bottles of things for only a week's stay. Also remember to pack PLENTY of sun cream, we got through 2 bottles of SPF15 and had to buy a bottle of SPF30 (for a whopping 25Euros!) as it was so sunny and you have to re-apply all day, especially if you're in and out of the pool/sea.

All-in-all a great holiday, good value for money, a great location and I would definitely go back - tempted to try out one of the other islands as they're all very different. The owner's communication pre-holiday was great and they have a guest book in the apartment with info and recommendations for food/entertainment.

Despite being careful and only drinking bottled water, no salads, no ice etc we did get upset stomach on last night of holiday - didn't put me off going again, just have to remember it's a developing country and these things happen, others on our flight home had got very ill staying all inclusive in 5* hotels so I think we got the better deal!

fantastic town,great complex and location but!!!!

  • 3 of 5

Santa Maria was a great town with plenty for weeks chillout without been too busy.Tam Tams was ok if you wanted an english(sorry irish) breakfast although a bit pricey at 22 euros for 2.The "in"place to be for drinks seemed to be the Oceano bar in the square, live music most nights and very busy, but try the local back street bars the drinks are quarter the price and the locals are very welcoming. Plenty of restraunts to choose from and not a lot to seperate them food wise,you wont get Michelin star food here but it is tasty and clean,our best meal was in the hotel between PA1 and PA2 sat on the outdoor terrace overlooking the sea..Spectacular! Also had a couple of meals in Angelas,turn left out of PA2 and the first restraunt on the left, it was very nice overlooking the beach.

Porto Antigo 2 is in a superb location,walking from the apartments past the pool and onto the beach in only 20 yards.The complex is also very secure with security guards asking for details of your apartment before letting you in,although we never saw anything to suggest that they were needed. Out of the apartments and within 100 yards your in the square.

The apartment itself has every thing you need,nice big tv in lounge,dvd player,music centre,well equipped modern kitchen,iron and board even padded cushions for the sun loungers by the pool. The not so good bits,the drawers in the wardrobe were falling to bits the first time I opened them it fell down onto the drawer below and I nearly had a hernia trying to free it and put it back in place, but by far the biggest problem was the lack of outside space to sit in private. A big part of our holiday is to go out have a nice meal a couple of drinks then back to the apartment to sit on the balcony/terrace with a bottle of wine and watch the world go by.The only private outside space is the one leading off the lounge area,this faces the street but is enclosed by a 5/6 foot wall so the only way to see any thing is on your tiptoes,the main picture that shows the table with wine and sea in the background is actually a shared walkway/entrance leading to another 3 apartments so no privacy there,also the view from the bedroom looks out onto this area so you cant leave your windows or shutters open as people can walk by and look in.The apartment is very nice but I think these photographs are very deceptive,we paid a little extra for the nice outside space that we did not get.

We will stay on PA2 again but not this apartment.

Owner's Response: just got back from apartment 66 and 64 porto antigo 2 had a great time in a great complex as the review says. just replaced 2 screws in the draw that had come loose so now fine. the outside space used for our entrance with views over the pool and the sea is only used by us as next door has never been sold so is not shared in any way but gives us front views as well as balcony views behind the same as the other apartments. we also own the apartment next door to the left that is a higher cost but bigger and being on the top corner has rear corner balcony and front balcony that both look down and round Santa Maria beach .worth the extra rather than doing a last minute cheaper deal.

Best of Both Worlds

  • 4 of 5

Great apartment with everything you need. Slap bang in the middle of town, so can just stroll out to shops and restaurants. Safe to wander around at night and hardly any hustling - residents are so chilled out they go away when you dont want to buy their stuff!

Right on the beach, so just go down to the lovely pool and enjoy the sun and gentle breeze. Little private beach in front of the pool. Adrian and Jean - the owners - were incredibly helpful before we went when we bombarded them with questions

Perfect Situation!

  • 3 of 5

This apt is in a fantastic location. One way to the glorious beach and the other, out to eat and drink! Although small, it is perfectly adequate for 2 people. Everything that you would need is provided. The apt is clean and bright but it could do with a little TLC! The bedding is VERY tired! It was all very creased and didn't smell clean. The fridge was only partly working so anything we wanted chilled had to go in the ice-box. Ok for us as we were only using it for drinks but not too good if you wanted to cook and store food. We had a problem with the door lock and it sometimes took us a few minutes to get in.

I know these are niggling complaints, but little things that could be improved to make it the truly special place that it should be. It is screaming " look after me!"

But we did have a lovely holiday and we would certainly return to Santa Maria.

Owner's Response: All things are now sorted fridge was working ok so must have just started to go .but we brought a spare one from the uk when we shipped everything over as you can't get a decent one there. so we have changed that. got our handy man there to oil the door lock sand seems to get in everything so now fine. also got our cleaner to make sure she irons all the bedding as normal and supplied her with english washing powder. so all is well and kitted out with all english white goods big lcd tvs not like most that have local products.

A pleasant stay in Cape Verde

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay at the apartment. It was very clean and tidy with nice decor. There were plenty of cooking utensils, towels plus little homely extras and the beds were comfy. The pool area is very nice that over looks onto the beach. As an added bonus Adrian and Jean happened to be on holiday the same time as us, so they were able to inform us about the best places to eat and things to do on the island. All in all the stay was a very pleasant one. I would return to the island and stay in the apartment again.
