I don't give a 1 point rating easily. But then... I've never left a hotel early. We booked this hotel for 6 nights and left after the first. Not that everything was terrible. Just nothing was right. I don't have high expectations of hotels in countries like Cape Verde but this one was even below my "as long as I... More

We live about 20 miles away from this place but only yesterday, June 1st, we were able to go and stay there. Could not believe our eyes as we went in. The swimming pool, clear as cristal, with the Atlantic Ocean in the background, was something else! Our family enjoyed the simplicity of the place and the beauty all around.... More

Was here for a wedding and arrived 2 Am early and yet found the owner waiting for us. Mr Almeida always had a smile and a quick quip. Initially what we though as reluctance to communicate, soon turned out to be embarassment at not speaking English, but Shisto Almeida with his exuberance and willingness to help , made us want...

In an earlier planing stage we decided to stay at this hotel - not far from the airport - for our first few nights as the reviews have been good and the e-mail contact with the owner was pleasant. When however our flight got cancelled and we changed our plans we had to cancel the reservation and the owner confirmed... More

There are plenty of reasons that this could have been a great hotel - beautiful location with a swimming pool and the owners live on the premise - which could have given the hotel a welcoming feel. Our experience however was very disappointing. The owners seemed quite disinterested in the guests and in two weeks of traveling in Cape Verde... More

The place is fantastic, the rooms are cold as can be for a very good night sleep or a day nap, the food is excellente and the bar is supper. The owner Dulce Almeida is extremlly friendly and acts like family to her guests. Did not expect to find such a nice place where there is an abundance of peace... More

fantastic location right on the sea edge, 2 km from Cidade Velha. Owner lives on the premises but seems uninterested in his guests. Failed to meet us @ the airport and seemed surprised when we arrived, despite written confirmation from travel agent who was 100% reliable for the rest of our trip.. Mean with hotel pillows, toiletries ( one plastic... More

Stayed here with my wife as we were contemplating buying into a development nearer Cidade Velha. Xisto Almeida the owner came to meet us at the airport- a real welcome to this island. The hotel is quite new and the quality and service far exceeded expectations. We were almost treated like family. The food is excellent especially the fish but... More

Great site overlooking a small bay with clear clean water and very few swimmers (if any). A little out of Cidade Velha (not a bad thing) by around a kilometer. Has a nice pool and the best food in Cidade Velha. Nice size double rooms - not really set up for twin accomodation. Run more like a large family house.... More
