Our 2nd trip to Cape Verde........ great weather guaranteed, fantastic beach, welcoming locals and did I mention the sunshine!!!
Having previously spent a week at the Riu we decided to try the new Tortuga Beach Resort. The first thing to say about the hotel is that the rooms are exceptional, plenty of room, modern with great facilities, we had a 2 bedroom apartment and the balcony was fantastic with views over the pool down to the excellent beach.
Loved the beach club, it was perfect sat there in the evening watching the sunset whilst sipping the all inclusive cocktails!!
Great pools, good quality food for an all inclusive resort. The staff were friendly although it was obvious that they are still training and were a little slow at times but their attitude more than made up for any shortcomings.
I would certainly recommend Cape Verde and Tortuga is probably now 'the place to stay' on the island.
