“Lovely stay here..”
Reviewed January 7, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We enjoyed our stay at this apartment for 8 nights between December and January 2018. Communication was very good from the owners (Simon and Annie) and collection was organised for us at the airport. It was about a 20 minute drive from the airport and we were met by Lizzy on arrival who gave us a helpful basic induction about the apartment and complex. She had supplied some water and basics which we thought was a nice touch! The apartment is very well equipped and clean with all expected conveniences working well. The Vile Verde complex itself is quite large and initially seems somewhat sprawling but once you get your bearings, it's all fine. Not all the apartments are occupied and it's quiet. Not a problem for us. The swimming pool in our complex area wasn't operational which didn't matter to us as we prefer beach, but we had access to a nearby pool in the complex if required. There is a basic supermarket on site and some restaurants. We mainly used Santa Maria beach which is a leisurely 20 minute stroll on a good path or 3 mins by taxi. The beach is very beautiful with clear water and white strand and lots of easily accessible restaurants / bars etc. There are other beaches Ponta Preta within 5 mins walk also. The only minor thing I could think of was access to wifi, which is only in the main areas but you can get access to a mifi dongle in the apartment if required. All in all, we felt this was a pleasant location and good accommodation as advertised and would have no problem recommending it or indeed returning which we hope to have an opportunity to do soon!! No stress!

“Wonderful Warm Weather Destination”
Reviewed May 10, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

people found this review helpful

The apartment is clean and well presented with all the appliances you need for a holiday let. Even down to a Mifi dongle if you can't live without the internet.
Simon and Annie responded quickly to any questions and the entire booking process was painless, with the bonus of the meet and greet by Lizy when we arrived, meant it really was as simple as getting into our designated taxi and 15mins and 12 euros later we were being shown around the apartment.

The resort is quiet but the standards around the resort are good, the walkways are kept clean and litter free and the grounds and pools are well maintained (although several pools are currently closed). As more people use this resort it undoubtedly will only improve, everything is there really and it just requires a larger volume of people for additional outlets on the resort to begin trading. There is however already a pizzeria/bakery, 2 restaurants, supermarket and bar along with a bank onsite.

The weather is fantastic and the beaches are beautiful, the perfect place for a relaxing holiday, if you wish to be more active and explore the island then there are plenty of options from watersports to island tours, all in all a superb warm weather destination.

“Villa Verde apartment”
Reviewed April 3, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

person found this review helpful

A quiet but very comfortable apartment, made better by the affable chap (Stuart) who met us and explained everything we needed to know about a stay in Cape Verde. Had continual pre-visit contact with apartment owners which was reassuring. And a nice touch was the arrangement of the transfer from the airport! Resort facilities were good if you bother to investigate. Would recommend especially after talking to some other holidaymakers in Santa Maria who went all-inclusive and wished they hadn't.

Had a wonderful week. The apartment was beautiful and clean. It is a lovely setting for a break in the sun the only downside is that the complex felt very quite and isolated at times but if like us you don't mind seclusion it's perfect.

“Good apartment on a quiet location”
Reviewed January 15, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Vila Verde Resort is a quiet complex. Good apartment with everything you need.
By shuttle bus in a couple of minutes to Santa Maria, only disadvantage is a limited number of seats. A taxi will bring you for 4 euro also.
An excellent place to escape from the daily stress.
Supermarket is small and not very well equipped. Downtown there are possibilities enough to do your shopping’s and there are also very good restaurants in Santa Maria where you can eat for a fair price.
Simon and Annie do their utmost to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
