With just 48 rooms and one suite, guests at the Hotel Dunas de Sal are able to enjoy an attentive, personal service in this relatively small establishment. As you would expect from a hotel of this standard, the well-equipped rooms are ensuite with private balconies and have air conditioning, satellite TV, room safe, hairdyer and minibar. The suite has a hydro-massage bath.
A highlight of the hotel is the pool area (fresh water), with an adults’ pool plus two swimming areas for children. Surrounded by sun-loungers and parasols, this is an ideal place to catch up on your holiday reading or just to soak up the delicious sunshine. Beach towels are provided.
There is also an outdoor cafe to add to the sophisticated ambience. A communal lounge with widescreen TV is available for guests’ convenience. For those who favour a bit more activity, the hotel has a small gym and hosts occasional yoga classes. A particular feature of the Dunas de Sal is that it is home to its own scuba diving centre, which organises trips to the best of Sal’s dive sites. Snorkeling excursions are also a possibility.
The hotel restaurant has a good reputation and offers both Cape Verdean specialities and international favourites. With a programme of live entertainment, you can also enjoy a gentle musical accompaniment to your dining.
Situated just one street from the lovely Santa Maria Beach, this hotel is close enough to allow easy access to the sea, but also a little secluded from the busy beach life.
Like all the hotels on Sal, there is much to do when it comes to water sports. However, being just off the beach you would be ideally situated for some chill out time if you found watching all this activity too much!
