Nice place to stay at Cidade Velha. We spend there only one night. A litlle bit steep to carry your luggadge but the room was nice and clean. Breakfast was ok. Only the swimming pool was a litlle too "green" for us to feel like jumping in...

Standards, it must be said, of hotels in Cabo Verde are low, and the main difficulty, observation suggests, is maintenance. Checking into this hotel, we asked for a balcony only to be told that there were none available; we got a sea-view room, predictably shabby and with only one sheet, but saw only a couple of other guests staying. \Perhaps...

The hotels on the lesser known Cape Verde islands are poor, so this one stood up well to its competitors. It had a pool and pretty gardens. The food was fine. The bar was well stocked. The staff were rather apathetic, but friendly. The rooms were spacious and cleanish. On the downside, the blocks of accommodation were widely scattered, the... More

At first the hotel seems nice, nice views and a pool. But then the nice things end. The pool is occupied bij locals all day, who pay $500 escudo to use the pool. The water is unclean and the pool could use some paintwork. The service at the restaurant is poor, the people barely speak english. Lunch and dinner is... More

We stayed just one night here before flying back home from Praia. In general, the hotel was OK - our room was spacious, with a balcony overlooking the sea and the garden. The bathroom however seemed a little run-down and it was not possible to take a shower without the whole bathroom getting wet. The garden surrounding the hotel is... More

After a pretty bad 2 hour experience at the airport getting visas, the four of us were not so happy to discover that this hotel we booked was a 30 minute drive ($40 for the hotel shuttle each way) from the airport on scary roads. We arrived in the dark, so to be fair this might have made the place... More

The Limeria Hotel is well located just outside of Cidade Velha. The garden is very nice constructed and maintained with lots of local plants. The rooms itself needs some renovation, the best times are over.

We stayed here for three nights. Our room was clean and spacious, with a balcony and lovely view of the coast and over towards Cidade Velha. Food was freshly cooked, and good. Excellent bread at breakfast, and cachupa (tasty bean dish). Attentive, pleasant staff. Cidade Velha used to be the most important town in Cape Verde, so a trip there... More

We stayed for 2 nights early October so quite early in the season and beside us there was just an other couple. Nice looking buildings and a great park. View on the see from pool and restaurant. Very friendly staff. Breakfast and dinner were simple but great quality - even we were the only guests eating. Room was simple but... More

After spending a horrendous stay at another hotel in Cidade Velha, my girlfriend and I decided to try the Limeira Hotel. All of the employees from the security staff to the front desk, to the restaurant staff made us feel incredibly welcome and went out of their way to make sure we got a room that was ready.
