Great apartment, clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Complex quiet whilst we were there, some days we had the large pool to ourselves. Short walk into village along beach front. There were three small restaurants and a couple of small shops selling basic groceries just a one minute walk from apartment. We contacted Philip to see if there were any cushions for sun beds which were wooden, unfortunately there were none, Philip managed to purchase two and they were delivered to the apartment, what a great service! Would use this apartment again.
We loved every minute of our stay at Tropical Resort.
Philip's place was perfect for us and the location is ideal, close to bars, restaurants, cafés and less than 5 mins from the beach.
The flat is spacious in excellent condition and we liked the fact that it was ground floor with a generous terrace overlooking the beach and the palm trees.
It's a stone throw away from the beach and the cafes.
We can't wait to go back.
Within a few minutes walk to town and even less to the fabulous beach this apartment was near everything but retained a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Its a small cluster of apartments and a small hotel (yet to open).
The apartment is well maintained and clean with all you need in the kitchen. The bed was very comforatable and a good nights sleep was achieved every night.
Tropical Resort is only 2 minutes from the casino, local bars and restaurants etc. We were collected from the airport by taxi driver Theresa who was extremely helpful and informative.
Santa Maria is in the process of being developed but the resort is tucked away from any disruption.
I heartily recommend this apartment.
Me and my husband really liked staying at Philip's place. It was clean,tidy and everything worked the way how it was supposed to. Philip is a great host,one of the best we have ever had!very hands on,any question you might have he will reply within few minutes! also big thumbs up to Lorena (house manager) who waited for us at the apartment (transfers also organised by Philip!!) and kindly took us to the centre and showed us places where to have a nice meal!she also arranged for someone to come to tell us about all the available trips:) if you are after nice relaxing and quiet place dont look anywhere else!:-)
Lorena (the house manager) picked us up at the airport and drove us to the beautiful tropical resort. The apartment was very clean and Philip answered all question we had during our stay immediately via WhatsApp. The pool is nice and has some shadow places around. The beach is close and easy to reach (even our younger daughter (2 1/2 years) could walk the way). The beach is really beautiful and not many people around. We loved our stay there and would recommend it to everybody. It is quiet as it is not directly in the city Santa Maria but close enough to enjoy all the bars and restaurants as well.

I have never seen before such a good treatment to clients. Nuno Reis (man on reception) found the best and cheap transfer for us, gave us a piece of advice about where to go and see on Sal. It was a pleasure to have a deal with him.
The apartments have a lot of space. It's new and clear with nice furniture. It takes 3-5 minutes to get to the beach.
Saved to my favorites for next time.
We found in Tropical Resort everything we had come for. The flat was very nice and comfortable, all the devices worked perfectly. The area around the pool and the garden are very beautiful and clean. My family enjoyed every minute of our stay in Santa Maria. Philip was contactable at all time, and everything went well!
