A really nice guest house near the centre of Sal Rei and right on the beach. Excellent and spotlessly clean rooms with bigger than usual bathrooms. Mosquito screens are installed in the window openings. Wonderful sea view from (most of) the rooms. Very helpful owners with a small travel info center on their premises. Good price-quality ratio. Simple but good... More

We spent a week on Boa Vista, Orquidea Guest House. We had booked the penthouse. The room was nicely decorated and had everything we needed: bed, bathroom, closet, fridge, private balcony with two hammocks, ocean view. It was paradise! A perfect place to relax for a week. Personnel was kind, breakfast in the courtyard was a treat. The guesthouse is... More

We spent a wonderful week staying as this gentle, relaxed, family-run guest house. Breakfast in the shady courtyard was a daily treat as was the hammock on our spacious verandah. We really felt we were staying in exactly the right place in order to experience Boa Vista for real and the guesthouse is ideally located next to beach and on... More

We had a lovely 10-days stay at this hospitable guesthouse. Situated on a perfect location just outside the city along the beach of the Sal Rei bay. We had the top room which is well equipped and has a beautiful view on the bay with the small island in the middle. A good breakfast is served in the botanical garden... More

Stayed for a week in March 2014. Fantastic location right on the beach and very convenient for the town of Sal Rei. Surroundings were a bit scuffy but that's Sal Rei not the hotel! We had a room with a huge terrace and a fantastic 180 degree view of the beach and sea beyond. Terrace has a table, two chairs,... More

I can honestly echo everything good which has been said about Orquidea Guest House. It is well situated, spotlessly clean and comfortable. We had a spacious room with balcony and hammock, lovely breakfast, friendly staff. As well as all of this we want to thank Orquidea and Jerry for their help when we had a middle of the night medical... More

Orquidea is a guest house conveniently located between the beach and the major plaza of Sal Rei, both of them are reachable in a 5 min walk. Nice and spacious rooms, equipped with A/C and fan. Nice balcony, where you can lie on a comfortable Amaca. The breakfast is good. Friendly staff includes two wonderful parrots, some tortugasa and a... More

Recommended to me by several of the local friends I have made in Cape Verde (have visited CV six times since 2010), I knew it would be good. As a single traveller this time, I needed a safe haven. Travel reviews don't really do it justice! It surpassed all expectations, having always stayed in one of the big hotels. Ideally... More

Guesthouse Orquidea is wonderful. The family who run it are welcoming, helpful, friendly. Our room was spacious with a lovely, big balcony overlooking the beach. Fantastic just to lie in the hammock and enjoy the sound of the waves. The breakfast area is a beautiful courtyard filled with banana trees and bougainvillea tumbling from the landings above. My husband and... More
