    Hello Typical,
    I think you are getting a bit confused with this road its nothing to do with Turinvest, this road is being funded by the Cape Verdean goverment it runs all the way from the start of Santa Maria right along to the Riu it just so happens that it runs by the Djasal blocks which is fortunate for us, thats why I said in my previous post that Turinvest have had permission from the council to connect their pipes upto the new roads pipe when its completed in doing this Turinvest can start pumping the water from under the blocks, hope this clears the confusion up.

    Hello Folks,
    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I have had it on good authority from a resident in Block C that the workers have been laid off in Block D and Club 1 has now closed, he said that the work will begin again in Block D in January and Club 1 will re-open too, Turinvests hotel the Criola is still open.

    Hello Typical,
    With regards to the missing items we recieved a microwave that doubled up as a grill which was a replacement for the oven, we still have items missing but these are just a set of medium towels, 1 set of single and double bed linen and various kitchen utensils we recieved everything else that was on the list I am hoping when we eventually pay our water and electric bill that I will be able to come to some deal with Turinvest that I get money off the water and electric for the items that are still missing in my apartment.
    On the whole I am very satisfied with my apartment we have now used it four times since May last year and have no complaints its very spacious inside for two people, fortunately we don’t have the problem with damp as we are on the first floor so all the walls are damp free but when you look into some of the ground floor apartments the walls are rotten with damp.
    I just hope Turinvest do get their finances sorted out and the 5 blocks get completed and the damp problem gets sorted out once and for all because this complex is on one of the best locations on the island which has the best beach within a 5 minutes walk it will be a massive improvement to the area when the new road has been completed outside the blocks which is coming along very fast.

    Hello Typical,
    Regarding the services in the Blocks you have a homeware shop,a launderette and a hairdressers in Block A, you have two food shops and two restuarants one italian and one british in Block B and in Block C where I have my apartment you just have the Thompsons office.
    As for the Aquapark you can forget this I don’t think this will ever happen Turinvest will probably just sell of this land to try and bring in some more money.
    As for the town of Santa Maria you can see improvements here and there since I was there in March such as new shops and bars opening,new plants and flowers being planted in and around the town and new roads being built, hope this answers your questions.

    Hello folks,
    Just back from Djadsal from my 2 week holiday and I have uploaded the following photos please click on the link below.

    http://www.caboverde24.com/property-photos/categories.php?cat_id=7&sessionid=a8c1c3762179ebb8d377414f1630444f

    During my stay we had a brief meeting with Antonio who has taken over from Christiane and during the meeting we spoke about the water thats under the blocks and according to him Turinvest have had permission from the local council to connect their pipes that are outside Blocks C and E to the main storm drain of the new road thats being build outside the blocks, when the new road is finished he said they would start pumping the water from under the Blocks which in turn will put a stop to the damp problem.
    When I was using my apartment in March there was much more work going on in Block D but this time there was hardly anything going on which was a bit concerning but Antonio did say that work would be accelarated once the new road has been completed outside the Block personally I would take this with a pinch of salt as I wont believe until I see it,the way things are going with the Block with respect to the workforce I would say the middle of 2013 is more realistic.
    Anyway thats about it if you have any questions then please ask and I will try and answer them for you.

    Hello Rupert,
    What you do is wait a couple of weeks before you actually leave then go on the thompson website and check the flight prices they will definatley be cheaper than what they are now for November, last year when I checked the flight prices for November you could get a return flight for about £189 each and that was near the end of October last year when I checked, patience is the key but you will get a bargain if you hold off, hope this helps you.

    Hello Dave,
    Thats good news about the Blocks thanks for the update,I know your a busy guy but since you live and work there all the time is there any chance you could give 5 minutes of your time every week and write a few lines on the progress thats being made, this would be much appreciated by myself and probably the rest of the Djadsal owners who have invested in these Blocks.

    Thanks,

    Hello Mac,
    I look forward to you burning your furniture next to the pool should be interesting, I think you have totally lost the plot pal, keep taking your tablets as you are wired to the moon at the moment, the quicker you come back down to earth the better, by the way im 5ft 10″ and have slept in the single beds with no problem, I don’t know what height 13 year olds are in Holland but they must be putting growth hormones into their cornflakes if they can’t sleep in one of these beds.
    Anyway I am not wasting anymore time with you this is the last time im replying to you I will let people on the forum make their own minds up about you with the comments you have made.

    Bye Bye

    P.S.
    I can get to Espargos for 1000 escudos in a taxi and 200 escudos in a minibus so I don’t think you can get that for half the price.
    Keep puffing those magic fags Mac. [:o)]

    Hello Mac,
    I think your comments about the furniture package are unjustified,I have stayed in my apartment for a total of 5 weeks now and I am vey happy, the beds are comfortable as they all have these memory foam mattresses so I think lying on the floor is a bit harsh, as for the Microwave all I can say is that they are the standard size in the UK and they have an added feature of having a grill and Westpoint is not a bad make, the TV is also fine as we watched a few DVD’S at night I must admit they do look weird its half way between a flatscreen and an old CRT but it does the job, the toastie machine is great and we have made many toasties with it so enough said there, the tables and chairs are very good quality, as for the towels you will always get covered in fluff during your first use all you have to do is put them in the washing machine and they are fine to use after that NO FLUFF take my word for it we have used our towels many times.As for paying 9000 euros for the furniture package I think you may be wrong as we only payed 6000 euros and at this price we have no complaints it would have cost a lot more if you imported all your own furniture,I admit some of the furniture is basic but functional and everything is there to have an enjoyable stay which we have.
    I think you should stop smoking those funny cigarettes that thay have in Holland while you are writing these comments on the forum as your not helping people who have invested their hard earned cash into this development as they could make costly decisions from what you have wrote which in my view are misleading.
    I get the feeling C.V. is not for you Mac its still very raw and rough round the edges but its full of charm and eventually these rough edges will be smooth and C.V will be a gem in years to come as the potential here is massive.

    Anyway thats me finished my rant goodbye for now.

    Hello Folks,
    Just to put your minds at rest the workers have returned to Block D as I was staying in my apartment last week in Block C and without fail got woken up every morning apart from Sunday at about 7:30 am, in a way I was glad because I knew work was getting done and eventually I will be able to look out my bedroom windows and see a completed Block instead of a half finished one, the work continued right through to about 4:30pm and I would say there were about 20 workers on site at one time these ranged from painters, stone masons and general labourers.
    I have also uploaded some photos just click on this link below.
