Just returned from a holiday at Porto Antigo Residence in Sal Cape Verde Islands.
I had a wonderful time and enjoyed the apartments and the area very much indeed.
The location of these apartments in my opinion is simply the best
I have previously stayed at both the Rui Funana and the Rui Garopa but you are isolated and do not feel the "flavour" of the island.
If you are looking for the elegance of Barbados you wont find it here, but the beaches are just as wonderful, natural, and are not ruined (yet) by all the beach umbrellas, and loungers etc.
The walled beach at the Porto Antigo Residence is an absolute delight, and is private to the establishment.
The apartment I stayed in was very clean and very well equipped, had a fantastic view of the pool and the sea beyond.
The locals are a pure delight, simple, humble people, and the "lookie lookie" men that try to sell to you, are happy with a smile and a "not today thank you" (unlike teneriffe or the Canary Islands)
I found the restaurants very simple places, but the food was a great experience, fish was so fresh, and it tasted wonderful.
English is being learned, and the locals try very hard to help and accommodate you in any way they can.
If I were younger and had more energy I would without a doubt try my hand at all the wonderful water sports on offer, but the lack of energy did not stop me having a very special time that I want to repeat on this Island and most especially in Porto Antigo Residence. Jane
