- Very cheap - decent location
- The sheets on the bed were horrible and very old. That was the main thing that annoyed us. Otherwise the accommodation was quite reasonable - The map provided on this website does not show where Dourada Studios actually is. It is not in the centre of town and is actually about a 15 min walk outside of town - There was no towels provided (although I suspected and we had our own) but also no cleaning equipment for dishes, no washing up liquid etc.
Paula is super friendly and the studio provided all I required, it is a short walk from the town and far enough away not to be kept awake by its sometimes late hussle and bussle.
Nothing comes to mind. The price is fair and the standard meets that.
Location was great, owner was lovely, room was big with plenty of space and a decent shower, security was good with two sets of keys to enter the building, good for the amount of money you pay.
Hot water ran out pretty quickly in the showers.
Local people in the area not many tourists. was able to just do our own thing and cook in the apartment which was cleaned every other day. Simple facilities, everything you need. Lovely hostess.
Only thing was some guests had a lot of trouble opening the door, very noisy when coming home at night
The staff, Paula, was very kind.
The building was very difficult to find. A little far from the beach. No TV or WiFi.
The room and the bed was big. It is simple but good enough. Paula was very kind and helpfull. Our plane was leaving very late, and she let us to check out much later.
Althought it was not in the center, it take just 5-10 minutes to be there. The only towel was too old and it did not dry you.
Not so much
Shower leaking on the bathroom floor all the time.. Hardly able to speak a word english
Price was very reasonable and the room was a decent size. The owners were friendly and did their best to help The location is a 5 minute walk from the main centre and dose to the vegetable market. Room 1 is much nicer than room 2.
The terrace was an exaggeration - two people would not have been able to sit on it.
Fabulous place among the people of capoverde, Paula always very polite
It was a simple, big and clean room. We stayed only one day before and one day after our trip to the other nice island.
The room on the back side have a view on the next building. There are no showercurtain.
We really liked the location - among local poeple, there is a fruit and vegetables market just around the corner, beach and the city center is 5 minutes walk away. Very clean apartment. Paula is a very friendly helpful person, very attentive and kind. You can ask her for any help. The apartment is very plain and good relation price - quality.
Kitchen was not equipped for cooking, too basic.
Dourada Stidios is placed in the area of local people. There is lots of space, and it's very clean! Walking home at night is ok, of you're not on your own. There is no room service or reception, but Paula, living next door, takes care for you!
Very helpful and nice hostess Paola. Cheap and plain.
Not very close to the beach. A little noisy at night.
Nice and helpful people. We landed past midnight and Paola had organised for a taxi to pick us up. She had bottled water ready for us as well, which was welcome at that time of the night after a long plane trip! Hotel is a little outside the main roads, but that is great, since it is less "touristy". One can see a different side of Santa Maria than one with the massive hotels. Also, one of Paola's lovely neighbour runs a little restaurant 'Ponto do mercado" close by. She cooks basic but nice food at affordable prices.
A little investment will soon be needed to get more confortable mattresses!
Really nice straff! I called Paola my first night when i couldn't find the way and she came and met me :) clean and big apartments!
Nice room with shower (hot water is there usually or you can use water heater), kitchen and balcony! We stayed at 3rd floor and it was quite a huge space there! Location is 10min walking to the sea shore but quiet. Very helpful and friendly staff!
really good place to stay at 500m from the center...the staff Paola And Fabio gave is good as vices to stay in Santa Maria
Dont book rooms at the back: neighbour underneath has a 4-5 goats inside a backyard the size of a balcony. ( not a joke) they are cute but stink.
Very friendly staff, clean and good value for money on sal island
No wifi - but you can get a sim card from unitel cv
very kind managerin
barking dogs the whole night, even earplugs didn't help. you could get a better located and much better equipped appartment for one month for the price you pay here for one week!
