9,6 Excellent
Pros: The room was comfortable and spacious the hotel has 3 swimming pools with clean wArm water And the facilities never feel crowded. Breakfast is excellent and as we were on bed and breakfast terms did Not use the main restaurant. Staff were friendly and well trained. The beach facilities were a few yards away with A beach bar loungers and a good lunch time restaurant. I should add that our visit was in October at an earlier Visit in April I found the water not particularly warm. Santa Maria with its shops and restaurants is only a few minutes walk from the hotel.
Cons: Can’t find much criticism but you need to be aware that the island is virtually a desert so everything is brought In apart from the excellent fresh fish landed daily at the pier. The island is also very windy

5,0 Okay
Pros: Location, swimming pool
Cons: Bad food, not good bungalow, smell bad in the room because of the humidity
6,3 Good
Pros: In Cape Verde this is probably the upper end of middle re what’s available hotel wise (comparing on a more global basis Id say it’s more at the lower end of middle). Great beach location, pool area looked nice enough (though never used it as was at beach all day). Rooms fine, clean, no frills. Food ok, in the context of comments above.
Cons: Having to pay for wifi and use of the valuables safe in room seemed a bit tight. Slightly perched at the edge of town.
7,1 Good
Pros: Animation staff, their shows and activities. Hotel location off the beach and close to the village.
Cons: Construction works during our stay not pleasant when you are on vacations, guests should be warned of works during the reservation. The hotel ran out of water supply one day (probably caused by the works). An overall hotel renovation is advisable (rooms, swimming pools area, etc.). The meals room have too much noise, improvement recommended. Please, add more fresh fish and fresh fruit to the meals. Expensive internet rates.
6,7 Good
Pros: Comfortable bed. We got 'welcome' wine (without being able to open it- no opener in a room
Cons: Cleaning lady woke us up almost every morning (even if i asked not to disturb). Food overcooked. Noise - we lived with a street view even if i asked different (hotel was full only 30%). Ripping off for internet - 25 euro per week. However we used only 2 full days.
7,9 Good
Pros: We enjoyed!
Cons: The food, beach and services!
6,3 Good
Pros: Good location. Very very nice staff. 3 pools, enough for everyone, never too crowded. Enough beds on the beach.
Cons: First we stayed in a Superior Bungalow: its like a wood container, too much basic and with un awful shower (see pictures). And of course, you can hear everything from outside and your neighbors next door... We spoke with the receptionist that kindly moved us too another room, this time much better. But the price payed for the bungalows it's outrageous!!! It was everything fine until suddenly we started to see lots of cockroaches outside and when we came for dinner surprise! We had them in the room too! Next day same thing. Always asking for spray to kiil them. The staff was always super friendly and comprehensive but it's simply not acceptable that a kind of hotel like this has cockroaches!!! Also the food... Lot of variety but we would prefer less variety and a little bit of quality. Little variety of fruit, not even a natural juice! Honestly, not worth the money!!!!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great rooms.
7,9 Good
Cons: Have to pay for WiFi. It’s free everywhere else

9,6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very nice. The rooms spacious, and cleaned every day. The pool and jacuzzi were great! Breakfast was good and plenty of selection.
Cons: Beds were hard and we had an issue with room key which was resolved by getting a pair of extra keys. One of the nights some guests were very loud and drunk which woke up possibly the whole hotel in the middle of the night. Not sure if the staff did anything or if they could however it is very annoying to be woken up by shouting and slamming which lasted for over an hour. Apart from this incident the hotel was peaceful and relaxing.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Modern look and feel, great location away from the main strip.
Cons: The shower facilities could be more cleaner or changed to be in line with the modern look and feel.

Pros: This is a really good option if you want to be right by the beach but don't want to be in an all inclusive resort.
