Sea Views And Freshwater Pool, Apartment Complex Is Sat On The Beach - Porto Antigo Sleeps 4 (1 Bedroom)



Updated: 10-Oct-2016
Apartments in Porto Antigo Santa Maria, Sal Island, Cape Verde - The Superb Beach Is Unspoilt And 7 Km Of Sands Ideal For Swimming, Surfing And Also Windsurfing

Porto Antigo apartments are the nicest apartment complex's in Santa Maria. 1, 2 and 3 complex is sat upon the beach, so no walking across roads etc. It is very central and 3 mins level walk to all shops, supermarkets, banks, restaurants in one direction and 3 mins level walk to all the water sport facilities and tuition centre in the other direction. Each property has air con, and a shower, patio furniture and comes with all towels and sheets etc. The Kitchens are equipped, (but restaurants are so varied and good you may not use kitchen). Bakery is one street away, and so is fresh fruit and vegetables. Each of the apartments I own have wonderful sea views from Patio or Balcony and its a dream place to sit of an evening with a glass of wine and watch the last of the days sun sparkling on the sea.Your days can be filled with water activities of every imaginable kind, or just relax by the pool or lay on beach, catch the sun rays or read a book

Relax and enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the week we spent in Santa Maria in Apartment 9 very much indeed. The situation was ideal and we were able to have a very relaxing time, often just enjoying watching the world go by from the patio with a cup of tea, or a cold beer, in hand. The owner, Dianne, answered our queries promptly and her agent Blinky gave us a warm welcome to the apartment, which was spotless with very comfortable beds, and was very helpful with good advice. Overall we found Porto Antigo 2 to be a beautiful and well cared for development. Roaming around we didn't find anywhere else at all that compared to it for location and upkeep, the grounds and swimming pool were always very clean.

The apartment itself had everything we needed, and would have needed even if we had planned to do more self-catering, but the proximity to a wide range of reasonably priced cafes and restaurants meant that we chose to eat out most days.

We felt safe at all times out and about in Santa Maria and certainly hope to visit Sal again before too long.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at my apartment, and I am thrilled that you would consider returning, that is a compliment that we treasure. Thank you. My agent does a grand job with my guests and whilst the apartment and location is fantastic, its an added bonus to have someone as helpful and as keen to assist as she is. We are most grateful for the time taken to write, most people just enjoy their stay and then race back to the world of works and pressures of daily living, and the only communication is later when they re book, at that stage we understand how much they enjoyed their time with us and in my properties, but it is grand and we are thrilled when someone actually confirms the enjoyment of the experience they have had... Again Thank you and we would welcome you back at any time.. Kindest Regards Diane

Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week in apartment 9 and found the apartment simple but spacious for 2 people. Comfortable king size bed. Lovely view from our terrace of the beach and sea. Thirty second walk to the beach and pool around the corner. Only cooked a couple of breakfasts at the apartment as food locally is so cheap and good. Blinky, the agent, gave us some good recommendations for restaurants and was on hand for advice. Apartment was everything we wanted and, in our opinion, a fantastic location on a lovely quiet complex. With all the flowers and plants around the apartments it was a peaceful haven. Would have no hesitation in re-booking this or any other apartment this owner has in this complex.

Owner's Response: How very kind to take the time to post a review. The location of these apartments as you pointed out are a big help, the support I have with my agent Blinky is a further benefit. Porto Antigo 3 is the most peaceful of all, with the pool and beach around the corner some 30 seconds away.. I am delighted to have had you stay, and I would welcome you again at anytime..You were a delight to deal with, and Blinky sends her regards. Again so many thanks for your time in writing this review. Diane

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Porto Antigo 2 is the perfect location, directly on the beach but with a swimming pool as well. The restaurants, cafes and bars are minutes walk away, so although the complex is quiet and feels away from things, everything you need in on your doorstep. We stayed in unit no. 42 which has a wonderful balcony with a view of the garden, pool and sea. The apartment is simple and spacious. which is what we expected. We had daily cleaning provided and there is good security in the complex, not that I ever felt we needed it. The booking experience was a delight as our landlady Dianne was so helpful, prompt, honest and full of tips. I would highly recommend this apartment if what you are looking for is relaxation and simplicity. If you want luxury and frills then perhaps the all inclusive hotels are for you.

From the Owner

These properties were purchased because of the unique location. It is rare indeed to find a location sat right on the large and unspoilt bay/beach, with the town and all its benefits such as restaurants, banks, bars, and music all within 3/5 mins level walking distance.

Activity and Interests


The beach is a dream and the resort is built upon this dream beach.

No driving or walking needed for either the beach or the shops as most everything you would need for any type of family holiday whether its active watersports, such as wind surfing, scuba diving, surfing, swimming) pony rides, quad bikes, safari trips over the dunes etc, walking, deep sea fishing, reading or just lazing on the beach or around the pool.


The airport is a 15 min drive by taxi (very accessible) and cost approx 12 euros.


The nearest town is Santa Maria and is 3 mins level walking from end to end

Further Details:

All banks, shops, restaurants etc. Are within 3 mins level walk of the complex. Apartments are clean on arrival and extra cleaning,linen and towel changes can be arranged and paid for direct with agent

  • Notes on accommodation: The apartments have sea views from balcony/ patio areas, colour TV and equipped kitchens, they are on the small and friendly complex with freshwater pool and the complex is sat on the beach. Very close to the town/village centre and all the restaurants and shops, banks etc. There is a water sports facility within 3 mins level walk that hires most equipment and provides tuition for the wind surfing that Cape Verde is famous for. Quad bikes and Safari rides are available also from numerous centres. I do not charge extra for air con water or electricity charges. Outside: The complex has very pretty gardens and each has patio furniture. The pool is a freshwater pool and rarely busy, as the beach is in such close proximity and the complex small. Porto Antigo 1 has its own small "walled" beach that is very useful for smaller children as the sea is rarely rough and ideally suited to the less able swimmer.
