“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

everything as mentioned, appart super vast and crispy clean, taxi driver on time at the airport for the transfer to the Hotel. The owner Vanessa was always responsive and dynamic. The management company also, despite the new year festivities.we took the all inclusive for the whole stay (easier for the kids), and only tried 4 of the 9 pools! We'll come again next year for sure. Thanks again.

“Great place to stay”

The trip went seamlessly. It is a truly lovely apartment, spacious and beautifully decorated and the roof terrace was a super bonus. It had everythg you could want the owner was really accommodating and super helpful in organising the taxi from the airport and a welcome pack with wine on arrival :):) Wld recommend, be mindful though it is on the third floor and there is no lift available so suitcases have to be taken up and down the stairs if there is not a staff member around to help.

“Quality pent house”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed in the pent house towards the end of March 2016.
I would like to thank Vanessa for the fabulous customer service in arranging the apartment.
The apartment is just as you see on the photos to a very clean and high quality.
The apartment is in a central location on the complex which is spacious and also of a high standard.
We found the pools and the facilities excellent and was right on the beach and a five min taxi ride to main town Santa marina.
We decided to upgrade to all inclusive for our stay for convenience as there are no other restaurants around without taking a taxi which is very cheap 3-4 euros or complimentary hotel shuttle to town.
It was £65 euro under 12,s half price, both food and drinks plentiful and of a good quality, you can upgrade at reception for your choice of days if you fancy mix and match with all inclusive / self catering/meal out in town.
The option is there to self cater as the apartment is fully equipped and has extras like microwave, washer, iron, hair dryer etc.
There is a big supermarket a short taxi away to stock up.
We ate in Santa marina on our first night which was very nice and reasonable and I believe there are many good restaurants so don't miss out.
The weather was hot windy with a bit of cloud.
I hope to return.

“Fantastic Long Awaited Break”
Reviewed 2 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Always wanted to go to Cape Verde since seeing it on tv. No direct flights from Glasgow so Manchester Airport it was.
Started to look for a place to stay and came across a penthouse in the Melia Dunas Beach Resort complex by home owner which advertised on trip adviser. There is only one thing to say....firstclass....but will say more. Owner Vanessa was very helpful with lots of local info and suggestions for dining etc and organised for us to be met at airport and taken to resort. The apartment was great location over looking gardens and the hotel foyer onto the sea. Sun comes over balcony about 10.30 am in jan right through till sunset. There is a roof terrace and the balcony is brilliant for drinks watching the sun go down. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, lounge, kitchen all very spacious and very clean. Would highly recommend it to anyone. You have the independence to do what you want but still able to use the hotels facilities and the wonderful sandy beach to relax on. Will definately be back.
