Hilton Cabo Verde Sal Resort

Hilton Santa Maria is a luxury beachfront hotel in Cape Verde. The C-shaped hotel building wraps around its gardens and family pool area, with the open side leading out through the palm trees and onto the beach. The pool bar is just steps from the sand, where you can relax with a drink while enjoying the view. Other leisure facilities at the resort include the hotel spa and gym. In the evenings, you can have dinner in the buffet restaurant, and relax with a drink in the bar. For extra holiday atmosphere, you could try the beachside a la carte restaurant. As for the hotel's modern bedrooms, they're light and minimalist with wooden accents. Luxury toiletries are provided. Hilton Santa Maria is in the resort of Santa Maria, on the sandy southern tip of Sal Island. Sal is a tourist destination in Cape Verde, an independent island archipelago on West Africa's Atlantic coast. The hotel is within walking distance of the resort centre. Aside from the beach, you can explore the island's history and the unusual Pedra de Lume, a salt lake inside the crater of an extinct volcano in the north of the island.

The hotel is on the beach and 1.2km from the centre of the resort. Sal is one of 10 islands in the Republic of Cape Verde, off the north western coast of Africa, and popularly known as the continent's answer to the Caribbean. The entire island is less than 30km long, and 12km across at its widest point, so many of its attractions are within easy reach. You could explore Sal's salt flats, which made it an important stop on central Atlantic trade routes. The main language on the island is Portuguese, with its cuisine and architecture inspired by Brazil, Portugal and the neighbouring countries of mainland West Africa.

The hotel's beachfront a la carte restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, and you can dine with views of the Atlantic Ocean. The buffet restaurant welcomes guests for breakfast and dinner. The hotel is also home to a pool bar offering light snacks and grilled dishes, and an evening bar hosting live local musicians.

Spa treatments and facilities are available. The hotel also has a kids' club and playroom, and a dedicated children's pool area along with the main pool.

Large and lush pool area that overlooks the beautiful beach. The smaller children's pool is secluded near the children's club.
