The Sol Dunas Resort is tip top for relaxing – it’s got three pools and you’re a stone’s throw from a sandy stretch of beach.
We love this hotel’s location – it’s just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach. When you get there be sure to have your camera ready – the views of the Atlantic Ocean are amazing.
Kids will love the splash park and playground, but don’t fret – this place hasn’t forgotten about the grown-ups. There are four bars across the site and a luxury spa.

A Proper Hotel.
There are a lot of Reviews on this Hotel, some good, some not so good, but I am happy to say this will be one that is very very good. Don't think I have ever stayed in a Hotel before where I have felt at ease about the entire holiday. Myself and a family of 12 returned from the Sol Dunas only yesterday, and I immediately felt the need to write a review. When you first enter the Hotel you are not one hundred percent sure which desk to go too as the hotel itself is in fact split into 2 hotels, but you are straight away put at ease with the friendly staff directing you to where you need to go. Followed by your luggage being taken to your room while you can start you holiday straight away. With the whether around 29 degrees, we had no problem getting loungers around the pool at any time of there day, there was no early morning rushing to pick the best spots, as the entire pool was a good spot. The restaurants catered for every type of food lover, weather your a carnivore like myself who loves a plate of meat or a salad lover like some others and a mountain of different breads and pasta's for everyone to enjoy, plus there was never a shortage of food either. We was all inclusive for the week, and the staff are not scared to make sure that the alcoholic measures are a GOOD measure!!!! As for the room, when we first arrived we was given a top floor room, but on seeing we had 2 small children we was quickly changed to a ground floor apartment to make like a lot easier. I really really cant say enough about this hotel, the staff make you feel so happy and want you to enjoy your holiday, you can participate in as little or as much as you like in the water sports activities without feeling you must take part. The Evening entertainment was out of this world, me and my son sat the with our mouths open, while there was a reenactment of the Lion King, which we loved. Us as a family are already planning a second trip later this year, just because of the experience we had there. One extra note, the beaches are the cleanest I have ever seen, crystal clear water and soft to touch sand. It may sound like I am going a bit over board with the praise of the Hotel, but once you have been there and sampled the experience for yourself, you too will understand what I am talking about.More

Sol Dunas, Santa Maria , cape verde
Hotel: looked at reviews before visit and was worried about my expensive trip, bearing in mind it was Christmas. But... hotel was good although our room was as far away as could have got. Good exercise after all inclusive food. Food was varied and enjoyed trip with Gus on the beach. Do not book your trip with thomson as double the price and with Gus , you visit amazing places and it's safe. . Great guides throughout the day. Hotel pools freezing. Sea was warmer but pretty rough at times so lifeguards stopped any swimming. Watch out for sea urchins as I had a foot full of spikes after touching rocks. Santa Maria was nice but be careful of touts that claim to be security at your hotel and show you to their shops. Not too pushy but you feel you have to buy something. Very remote, baron place but a lovely place to chill out. More
We stayed here for a week at the end of jan 2017 with Thomson all inclusive deal. The staff were fantastic, so friendly. The setting is absolutely fabulous although there was a shortage of sun loungers on the beach for a couple of days but the staff will bring you more if you ask them. The beach could do with a few more parasols. The evening entertainment was very good;the pools were more than adequate and the children's section was very impressive.More
I am writing this sat on my sun bed enjoying the sun.We have been here for nearly 2 weeks.Our check in was quick and we were taken to our room9050 in a buggy by a very helpful and polite man.The pool we stay by is the one furthest from reception near the Italian restaurant.It is quiet and the bar staff are fantastic.We haven't got children but they are very well entertained by the kids club staff.We have been very impressed with the food.For breakfast there is fresh fruit in abundance,cereals,yoghurts,omelettes,fried eggs poached eggs,bacon,beans,sausages,croissants,cakes etc how people can say it is repetitive is beyond me.The restaurant staff work hard to clear plates and keep a very tidy restaurant.All the staff are friendly and extremely polite.There is absolutely NO STRESS here.Its fantastic.Thankyou to everyone for making our stay a lovely one xMore

We had a 2 bedroom ground floor apartment with a back garden overlooking the pool. On the day of arrival we had a warm welcome with cool delicious drinks on arrival. There are different restaurants to eat , wether it's a buffet or waiters service. It's all you can eat & drink everywhere . Pool & spa facilities . It's just divine . Great service , beach resort. You must visit the bikini beach club.More
