We had a week at the end of March and I must say the place grew on us each day with the food and accommodation being acceptable. On the last day my wife and I were struck down with severe diarrhoea, bordering on dysentery, and this made the six hour flight back to Manchester an absolute nightmare and the onward...

Dear Albetkcaldy, Could you please confirm to me that you are talking about Hotel Dunas de Sal, a small design boutique Hotel in the second line of the beautiful beach of Santa Maria?

The Hotel of Dunes del Sal was amazing. Cozy, friendly, tidy and happy hotel in general. The staff nice and friendly and helpful, the breakfast good, even because they have a lot of sweet things. The hotel's design is very minimal and stylish. In total a good place to stay!

Small, quiet hotel just across the road from the beach and a 15 min walk into town - nothing negative to say except the wifi is rubbish so don't expect to do any work while you're on holiday!! The food was good but I wouldn't recommend going full board as there are so many restaurants in Santa Maria to explore....

The hotel is a small place and the staff are very friendly. Our room was simply furnished which we liked. The pool and surrounding area was kept immaculate. Our upstairs room had an area outside furnished with deckchairs where we enjoyed the morning sun.

we were aware of Cape Verde's lack of water and its still developing tourist industry so were not expecting the european/british hotel experience. We were very pleased we chose Dunas rather than the all inclusive hotels on offer. we wanted a restful sunfilled break and that is exactly what we got.

This hotel is on the outskirts of Santa Maria, a 20 minute walk to the center. Therefore it is really quiet, especially at night. The rooms are of a high standard, clean and well kept. There is a mini bar with water, snacks and some alcoholic beverages. But, as always, the items are a bit pricey, it's much cheaper to...
