About A Thomson

Owners since 2011. Have experienced many magical holidays in Cape Verde, as have many guests. Their comments say it all!

Refer to trip advisor too.

A Thomson purchased this villa in 2011

Why A Thomson chose Cape Verde

Year round Sun, vibrant turquoise sea, golden white soft sandy beaches, brilliant sunsets, the array of restaurants, bars, spas, 'Latino-Portuguese-African' blend of music and culture.

The Local people, and fellow holidaymakers friendliness.

Close proximity to airport is an added bonus...just 15 mins away.

"No Stress" as the Cape Verde motto goes is so true!

What makes this villa unique

Worth flying that extra hour south of the Canaries for more guaranteed sunshine, and far superior beaches. Average daily temperatures 26c.

Only 150 metres to the beach, and brilliant sea views from the balcony terrace!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A great 3 bed Villa & great location. Really nice to have a private garden and pool, within a hotel complex, so the best of both worlds.

Villa non conforme à la description

  • 1 of 5

Quand nous sommes arrivées à la réception de l'hôtel pour la carte d'accès à la villa, on a dû attendre 3h malgres que nous avons prévenue le propriétaire ! Et quand nous avons enfin eu la carte et que nous sommes rentrés à la villa déception total !!! La maison était sale, les draps pas changer et aucun draps propre ! La cuisine n'en parlons même pas. Et le comble pas d'eau chaude ! Les chaises de la terrasse donnant sur la chambre était rouillée ! Aucun produit ménager et machine à lavée non fonctionnel ! Bref vraiment je ne recommande pas pour le prix on s'attandais à beaucoup mieux ! Nous n'y retourneront plus et nous la recommanderons à personnes !

Maison agréable mais !!!

  • 1 of 5

La description de la maison correspond. Mais pas d'eau chaude pendant tout le séjour (le propriétaire nous propose de nous doucher dans les douches de la salle de sport de l'hôtel où les enfants n'ont pas accès ). Il semblerait que la chaudière soit en panne depuis des lustres. Canalisation des salles de bain bouchée avec des odeurs épouvantables ( propriétaire averti des le début du séjour mais un retour sans aucune réactivité).

En bref on est loin du luxe avancé.

Traumhaft ruhiger Ferienbungalow

  • 5 of 5

Der Bungalow ist sehr gemütlich, großzügig gestaltet und hochwertig ausgestattet. Bei Anreise mit 6 Personen ist zu beachten, dass nur zwei der drei Schlafzimmer mit einer Klimaanlage ausgestattet sind. Da wir nur zu viert waren, ist das kein Problem für uns gewesen. Die Küche ist komplett eingerichtet mit Geschirrspüler, Backofen, Mikrowelle, Toaster......ect. Selbst auf der Terrasse gibt es einen Gasgrill, aber leider haben wir in Santa Maria keinen Metzger mit geeignetem Grillfleisch gefunden. Zudem gibt es in Santa Maria zahlreiche Restaurants mit hervorragendem Essen (z.B. das Café Creole, Café Cultural oder das Barracuda). Den eigenen Pool und die Terrasse haben wir vor allem nach dem Tauchen sehr genossen. Selbst den Gemeinschaftspool der Anlage hatten wir zumeist für uns alleine. Da die Anlage ca. 5 Min. mit dem Auto von Santa Maria entfernt war, haben wir uns den Luxus eines Jeeps gegönnt. Diesen haben wir problemlos in der Autovermietung vom Hotel Morabeza angemietet. So konnten wir auch die gesamte Insel selbst erkunden und sind zum Schnorcheln an einsame Buchten gefahren. Getaucht sind wir mit ORCA, weil uns dort das Equipment und die Freundlichkeit der Tauchguides überzeugt haben. Einkaufen waren wir zumeist im Supermarkt (gleich am Ortseingang von Santa Maria hinter der Tankstelle links). Die besten Caipies haben wir am kleinen Strandkiosk rechts von der Jetty in Santa Maria getrunken. Insgesamt hatten wir fantastische 14 Tage. Danke auch an Andrew, den unkomplizierten Eigentümer unserer Villa :-))

Die Wohnung bietet ausreichend Platz für 6 Personen. Die Einrichtung ist modern und zweckmässig, das Haus hell und freundlich. Die Anlage ist recht ruhig, der Strand lang und breit; allerdings zum Schwimmen nicht geeignet. Der Strand in Santa Maria ist echt toll (glasklar und türkis), am Fischersteg ist immer was los. Sehr empfehlenswert ist die Tam Tam Bar. Wer gerne frischne Fisch isst ist beim Fischermann gut aufgehoben. Eine Inselrundfahrt mit Tscharls haben wir bei Annes Info Point am Fischersteg gebucht - toll! Vor allen Baden in den Salinen ist super. Auch die Katamaranfahrt mit Luis war sehr schön. Im Nachbarresort fährt stündlich ein kostenloser Shuttlebus nach Santa Maria (vorher registrieren!). Insgesamt ein rundum gelungener Aufenthalt.

Sal Island is very appealing to lovers of water activities. Most like to sit back and watch the world go by, with nothing to think about other than simply 'fun in the sun'. The whole Resort is now up and running with 7 restaurants, boutiques, eateries, souvenir shops, etc.

Many love the thrill of quad bikes, which can be hired. Alternatively, hire a bicycle, and take it easy exploring. Hire costs about €10 for half a day. Various excursions exist, too, including fishing trips, boat rides, submarine and Island hopping trips.

Wildlife enthusiasts may wish to visit in turtle season ( October ). A brand new ferry service now operates between islands.


The beach is less than a two minute walk away (approximately 150 metres ). The beautiful sandy beaches are reminiscent of those in the Bahamas.

Cape Verde is just south of the Canaries, with a Brazilian/Portuguese/African mix.


Free shuttle bus available from airport 10 minute drive away, or taxis cost €15.

In general Taxis are inexpensive and plentiful, averaging €3 per trip into Santa Maria town. Car hire most people tend not to choose as it is quite expensive. However, here's a handy link:


Santa Maria town is 5 minutes away. Melia Dunas offers 7 excellent bars, including a piano bar, a late bar, spacious classy restaurants to cater all tastes, spas, massage areas, kids playing areas and more

...exclusively available to guests

The nearest mini market shop, 'Falmers' is a five minute walk away ( in Vila Verde Resort ).

Free Wifi available on the Dunas Resort ;)

Further Details:

A free shuttle bus will take guests from the airport in 15 minutes.

There are many shops which sell food and drinks. The nearest mini market is 5 mins walk away located in Vila Verde Resort, called ' Falmers', supplying basics like cereals, eggs, milk, bread, etc.

Tam Tams and Ocean Café bars are popular among many European nationalities, has excellent food, and are centre town, showing all the latest live Sky sports.

There are many more excellent bar restaurants. Melia Dunas offers Unlimited eat & drink packages. Weekly pass offers available too. ATM's plentiful.

Eating out varies from British, definitely some superb Italian to plentiful fish restaurants, serving fresh fish dishes. Brazilian steaks are excellent and well priced.

Sal's tourist nationalities are typically friendly locals, British, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Scandinavian and Spanish in alphabetical order!
