  • James's apartment is 1st class exactly like the photos, & relaxing on the large balcony overlooking the small pool is idyllic.

    We started by being met at the airport by Ildo our lovely taxi driver who couldn't have been more helpful (He works during the day & arranges for you to be picked up at night by one of his friends). James put us in touch with Vikki who has Baileys bar where we enjoyed English food & Sunday roast with the added advantage of her mini-market next door.Other good restaurants are Mora Beza Hotel (live music Wed night)& Chez Pastis a tiny Italian place was also excellent.

    Tortuga Resort is immaculate with 3 pools & a lovely beach.(Restaurants can be expensive if you're not all inclusive.)In the evening till 10.30 there is open air entertainment just in front of reception & the live Cape Verde music is fantastic.A really wonderful holiday made perfect by James's apartment.

  • Had a great stay over Easter in sunny Sal with temperatures around 30 degrees every day. The apartment is in an ideal spot on the resort close to the pools and a short walk to the beach whilst the balcony is perfect to capture the late afternoon sun.

    The glorious beaches of Ponte Preta and Santa Maria are only a 5 min taxi ride or a longer walk if you're more adventurous and fancy a stroll along the coast. Both are spectacular and where we spent most of our time. Santa Maria also has plenty of great restaurants and bars to enjoy.

    If you're after a relaxing week in the sun, this is the place!

  • James apartment is well located on the hotel complex. You feel very secure at night as the complex has many friendly security guards.All the staff of the hotel are very polite, friendly and helpful. Close to the super white sandy beach, in a quiet area with lovely views of one of the pools and palm trees.

    The apartment is very well equipped, comfortable and looks as good as the photos.

    We self catered and the taxis were cheap and plentiful. (day 3eur e/w and 4eur e/w at night. We took taxis to the beach at Santa Maria (better for children) west of pier, fantastic sand sea and waves. Then back into town at night for a meal. Several good restaurants on beach front. Palm Beach and Port Antigio to name but two. Didnt see one mosquito all week, had there been if they took off they would have been blown miles into South Atlantic.

  • We had a fantastic two weeks here on a self catering basis (all inclusive is way too expensive for mediocre food), besides we had lots of fun choosing from the many lovely restaurants in Santa Maria every night.

    The apartment is in pretty much the most optimum location at Tortuga, a nice stroll to the beach, away from the loud nightly entertainment but close enough to the pool. We had everything we needed here and would definitely recommend this holiday let to our friends and family.

  • A lovely apartment with great surroundings. As self catering we got to experience the local town and all the fabulous restaurants and bars. The beaches are brilliant too. Loved our stay here!

  • Fantastic apartment, in the great Tortuga complex - if you are looking for a relaxing holiday, within comfortable, modern, top quality accomodation this is the place to be. The apartment owner arranges a lovely local taxi driver to take you to and from the airport and can have some groceries ready if required. The apratment looks EXACTLY like the pictures!

    The Island is still in very early stages of development which means you will see it before it becomes too commercial. However there are still plenty of bars & restaurants to sample both at the complex and in local Santa Maria. The Cape Verdian people are about the friendliest I've ever met. Their term 'no stress' is so true!

    I intend to go back as soon as possible and will derfinitely stay at Tortuga as I have sampled the other All Inclusive option up the road which is no comparison. James' apartment gives you the choice to eat where you want, when you want.

    My advice get it booked!

  • The apartment is a good size for a family of four and is exactly as seen in the photos. It's the perfect location in the Tortuga resort, near to the beach and set back from the pool, the real magic is coming back at the end of the day to sit on the balcony in the late afternoon sun. It was also great to have a washing machine, two bathrooms and two tv's!

    Our teenage children loved trying out the kite surfing with the great instructor from the water sports place on the beach next to the resort. They also loved the gym facilities while Mum and Dad enjoyed the cocktails at the beach bar! We really enjoyed the choice of eating out in Santa Maria and also being able to have an all inclusive day at the resort restaurants. A great holiday for us all.
