Fantastic location and great weather all year round. staff always had a smile and very helpful and any needs. Two of the five restaurants were being re-furbished and closed at the time - Spice and Sahel. All required pre-booked and personal choice based. Cove swim was fantastic with small fishes swimming around you. Free bus service drop and pick to Santa Maria - 15 Mins. away. ATM gives local currency but all happy to deal in Euros. Great Salt water Salinas ' Float ' experience, baby Lemon sharks swimming near your feet - definitely worth the experience!!!

Antonio ery friendly and very helpful would highly recommend this man knowledge of the island is excellent... I hope to come again and see this Living legend do what he does best
We stayed here in mid-May and had a fantastic 11 days. Our room(257) was perfectly placed halfway between reception and the boulevard (where the on site shops are). I’d recommend rooms in this block to anyone looking to base themselves in a nice central location in the Melia complex. Travelling with a 14 month old meant we spent the majority of our time in the Sol Dunas side (where the children’s pool and play area are located). We didn’t ever get refused bar service in the Sol Dunas side (I’d seen this mentioned in other reviews of Melia Dunas guests - perhaps this was because we were there outside of peak half term time and hence the rules were relaxed). Breakfast and lunch buffet was always really good - plenty of choice, fresh fruit and refreshing variety each day. Dinner was equally tasty - we ate in Atlantis, Rancho (our favourite of the A La Carte offerings) and Aqua but the buffet in Mozaico was hard to beat for choice. What I think really stands out for us was the staff who without exception were brilliant with our son. Stefany on reception couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. It became part of our daily routine to stop for a chat when walking through reception and Theo (our son) absolutely loved her. Shout out too to Tida and Manuel. Vandirce and Alberto in Atlantis (where Melia guests have lunch) were amazing too - always making a huge fuss of Theo and getting huge smiles and roaring laughs in return. Our room was cleaned every day, fresh towels and bedding always being a welcome sight to return to. Even the one day where we’d had the ‘do not disturb’ hung on the door during most of the day we came back from dinner to find the room had been cleaned - a really unexpected treat as I thought we had missed the boat. Definitely somewhere we’d return to - thanks again for a great holiday.…
It has a bit for everyone, food is amazing, so many pools to choose from, amazing food and drinks, very happy with the all inclusive offer, staff is polite and helpful, and my 4 years old absolutely loved it too!
Very good travel in cape verde. Splendid side the animation's team is very sympatic and very performant. Beach in hostel. Good restaurants. Hospitality is correct. And the city at proximity ( santa maria) is not very far. Thanks you Bruno the great animator.
I spent a week here with my family and it was everything we expected. Food, cocktails and snacks are always available. Buffet was great with the rare ocasion, access to the two best beaches if you have kids and the staff were amazing. Dance/hidro/entertainers we're always on fire and with a good vibe. Emiliana was great with the kid's activities and face paints. Despite being one week, with the Piano bar with live music and the wide range of restaurants and pools none of us got bored. If you want to relax and calm and relaxing time this is the hotel to book with a family. The only thing to improve would be the gym.
Lovely hotel the people are all so warm and welcoming, especially Antonio from the spa looked after us from day 1 of arrival, always made sure we were looked after. If your visiting the island highly recommend staying here. #NoStress
Antonio is the best person in the hotel. If you need something ask Antonio hé Will fix it for you. Like booking a restaurant and hé Will help you with lost lugage also. Antonio was a great help for us. Great hotel
