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

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

A wonderful hotel for total relaxation, not too big and with a choice of beach, pool, gardens and bar you're not constantly bumping into other people. Five minute walk into town so we felt we were part of Santa Maria rather than a tourist from an hotel complex. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant with the waves for company we... More

We had a great time in this charming hotel! Friendly personnel and very nice restaurant with great food (we loved the "arroz con marisco"). Our spacious room had a view on the ocean and the shower was great. Nice cocktails at the bar and a small private beach: everything we needed was here. Perfect for a beach vacation: enjoy local...
