We stumbled across Cape Verde during an exhausting holiday search earlier in the year and after much online research we settled on the Island of Sal rather than neighboring Boa Vista. We chose the Melia Tortuga Beach resort after also considering the Melia Dunas next door and a Riu in Santa Maria. Upon our arrival we were greeted with the...

The staff are lovely and helpful. Entertainment was varied during the day and evening. The pools (2 adult and 2 kids) are nice sizes and kept clean. the...

Overall we had a fantastic time and I’d certainly recommend this resort, and Santa Maria and Sal overall. When we were leaving, someone said Melia Tortuga was "5 star accommodation with 3 star service", and I think that was quite a good description (3 may be a *little* bit harsh). The 2 bedroom family suite (modern and spotlessly clean) was...

Overall the hotel was clean, friendly and well-appointed and a good holiday resort worth visiting. The reception on arrival was friendly and efficient, though I discovered later that pool towel cards are arranged at reception so it is worth arranging these on check in.
