We spent 3 nights here and were satisfied. Simple, but clean and spacious 3-bedded room with balcony and bathroom, friendly young woman at the reception (speaking reasonable French and English). Excellent breakfast (best one we had in Cape Verde) with toast, nice local goat's cheese, cake, fresh fruit (papaya, banana) and fresh fruit juice (papaya, sometimes mixed with orange or... More

The "Residencial Ponta do Sol" is a very good place to stay. The location is at the entrance of Ponta do Sol, which is a very small village, so everything is close by: The square with a mini market, souvenirshop, ATM and the aluguers (shared taxis) is only 150 metres and the nice harbour with some good restaurants is 350...

This is a simple hotel, but it's spotlessly clean and freshly decorated. Breakfast is perfectly adequate (rolls, cheese, jam, banana) and they'll make you up a packed lunch. Hot water is fine as long as you avoid peak times. The village is very quiet, with a few basic shops and cafes, and is almost hassle-free.

We stayed at this 'residencial' as part of a walking holiday with Ramblers. The hotel was ok but like other places in Cape Verde certain simple things let the hotel down. However Ponta do Sol is a place we recommend visiting - the dramatic waves, the cliff walks and the little harbour with the fishermen & their boats.......and the port... More
