Arrived for a week of pre-Christmas sunshine and Dunas de Sal was just what we needed. Meticulously clean and well maintained grounds. Rooms are quite basic and minimalist but spotlessly clean and always hot water for the shower. Staff always helpful and courteous to guests. Lovely touch creating 2 amazing 'swans' out of towels on my wife's birthday....unexpected surprise when...

Go to Dunas de Sal if you want a relaxing holiday with personal and always friendly service. Take a superior room, you won't regret it. Conveniently situated near the sea and a15' on foot to the village of Santa Maria. Delicious breakfast inside or outside. Dinner a la carte is a real treat. Quality/price is excellent.

This is the best hotel in Santa Maria, Sal, Cape Verde. The location is near to the beach, but at short walk to the city center. For me no problem, I prefer to not have everything within 200 meters, it´s a nice walk. The design is cool and so are the poolarea. The breakfast is also very delicious.

I was making a booking for a group 9 of us. I looked at all the big massive impersonal all inclusive places, but my gut instinct drew me to the Dunas de Sal purely because it was a smaller, quieter and more intimate hotel and I definitely made the right choice.
