For us this was the best hotel in SAL island. We had a great time there with all the Staff. Lobster was very good and all the other tipical food. The Hotel is in the center so you can go everywhere on foot. Excelent quality. The pool is small but who cares? We have the beach sea... Too much works... More

We arrived late at night and first impressions of Sal and the hotel weren't great. The room was quite spacious but fairly basic and the bathroom had seen better days but was serviceable. In the morning we were amazed by the beautiful setting of the hotel - right on the beach with the restaurant overlooking the turquoise sea.....instant bliss! We... More

At the seaside there are many beautifully located appartements surrounded with flowers and palms. There are as well appartments in the second row potentially with view on constructions sites, hence one should care about the location. For breakfast there are many different dishes (e.g. Scrumbled eggs, fruits, ham, cheese) and they have good coffee. As there is only one coffee... More

This hotel is in the prime location in Santa Maria. It is on the sea front and is built out in to the sea, the restaurant is situated on the first floor where you can enjoy the views of the sea and the beach while having your breakfast or dinner. The staff are friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely pleased... More

We knew we would love the hotel from the moment we arrived. the hotels small and personal atmosphere makes it a favorite on the island. It's located by the beach and the restaurant keeps a high class. You only have to walk out of the front entrance to be in the middle of Santa Maria. So lets break it down.... More

I've just returned from a week at Odjo D'Agua (2-9th March 2015). First impressions: First impressions of the island were "what a dump!" - a dry, dusty bare landscape with plastic bottles and bags blowing around. First impressions of Santa Maria were not much better - most buildings are half built/unfinished (apart from the hotels) but that it has a... More

I had spent a good amount of time researching hotels in Santa Maria and wanted to avoid the big, impersonal, concrete jungle, all inclusive style hotels and found the Odjo to be absolutely perfect. We are a married couple in our mid thirties and wanted somewhere that was chilled but also allowed us to be part of real Cape Verdean... More

Very good location, centrally in the small town of Santa Maria. Our room was nice and we vere fully satisfied with the stay. Having said that, there are some negative I would like to mention: 1. Not all lamps in the room were functioning, we especially missed the lamp on the balcony that was out of order. 2. There are... More
