The apartment was very clean, located in the center of Santa Maria. We really liked to stay there and it was a good home base for a longer stay in Sal.
Everything you need, is nearby, be it bars & restaurants or souvenir shops and supermarkets.
You can be at the beach within 5 minutes walking distance.
Directly, next to the apartment is a pub, which has quite loud music every night. We recommend to bring ear plugs for sleeping silently at night ;)
Ildo, the taxi driver, fetched us very clocklike (even though we arrived nearly at midnight) from the airport, same goes for the return, that's really convenient!
The communication with Linda & Gary was very fast and friendly.
The apartment was nice and spacious and directly in the centre. Linda and Gary were also very helpful and answered also very quickly.
We really had a good time in the apartment, although the driver was a little bit late, he showed us the hotspots from Santa Maria and was very hospitable. The apartment was beautiful and had everything you would need for a longer stay. Attractive design and everything was in good condition. The location is perfect; in the centre of the small town and close to the beach.
The only minus point was the fact that we asked for the TV remote and an extra blanket, we never received it and did not hear back.
Again, this was a minor issue. We can highly recommend the Top Floor apartments and will definitely come back! Many thanks to Linda & Gary
We asked our cleaner to leave out the extra blanket, because we never heard anything more we thought everything was okay. Our apologies.
Also, our keyholder has advised that the remote has been missing for a little while now. Hope this did not inconvenience you too much.

Great place to stay in Santa Maria. Central location, spacious, clean and the rooftop pool with great view just tops it all.
Some noise of the surrounding bars could be noted, but for us this wasn't an issue. Just something to keep in mind when booking if you're a light sleeper.
Linda and Gary are very helpful with everything and reply quickly to questions. On Sunday the circuit breaker gave up, and they made sure it was fixed the same day.
All in all a great place to stay!
Hier mal mein Entwurf :
We had a lovely two weeks at this well equipped appartment. It provides everything you might need: chairs & table at the balcony, toaster, washing machine, gas for cooking, hairdryer etc.
As it is described, it is right in the center of santa maria and offers all possibilities you need for breakfast, dinner, shopping etc.
A bit noisy sometimes because of the cute local kids that love playing in the building and the bars around the corner at night.
It is not far from the beach as well and the view from the rooftop is very nice.
For our likings the matress could have been a little bit harder, but apart from that we can really recommend this accomodation.
The hosts were very friendly and provided helpful information and organized the airport-pickup etc.
Thanx a lot!
Thanks Linda and Gery!
We enjoyed a very comfortable stay at your apartment. Very clean and everything works fine. Nice pickup at the airport with Ildho.
Shure we will come back.
Sincerly, Danny from Switzerland
