Remote and beautifully decorated with items the owners have found washed up on the beaches. The hotel runs on solar and wind power. The food is gorgeous (though a bit expensive). The hotel beach has individual 'cabins' to give shade, which is much needed, hammocks and sofas. You feel like you are completely alone in the world. One of the... More

This is a remote hidden gem. Only for lovers of remote places, who love the sea, the calm, excellent and healthy italian food & the people of Boa Vista. It is absolutely not a standard hotel. You need to be a bit adventurous. Having a car to discover the surroundings makes your stay unforgettable. On top of that, the owner... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel during our trip to Cape Verde in March 2015. We spent a total of 3 nights there and would be reluctant in recommending it to anyone looking for a hotel on Boavista. The hotel was very clean and we found the rooms to be well equipped. We stayed in a great room... More

Spinguera is everything you would imagine it to be from the pictures and the reviews... And then some! The hotel and the decor are incredibly beautiful, there is wonderful local staff, the meals are great, etc. You really can't fault anything, as long as you keep in mind that isn't a 5 star resort (but something much more charming!).

Great attention to detail, great staff, lovely dog and wonderful evening meals. Make sure you go when it's hot for the full benefit! It is, as everybody says, a fabulous place to relax, chill and recharge in about an isolated a place as you will ever find so close to an airport. Met some lovely people there and will definitely...

We stayed seven nights including Christmas (2014). Transfers were kindly organized by Larissa, owner of the site. She and her team take great care of guests, in a friendly, unfussy way. The location is remote, making it a very peaceful and relaxing place to spend time. On three days, we walked to the nearby beach (a steady 30-minute walk), and... More

We stayed a week in Spinguera and really enjoyed it. Larissa, the owner was very helpful in both planning the trip and whilst we were there. The fact that she has built this place literally from the ground and with eco / sustainable credentials is hugely impressive. Theres a real personal touch to the place and an eye for design... More

Quiet, peaceful, close to nature. Charming and original housing, great and friendly service, good food. We loved it here! It's a 30 minute walk to a very beautiful beach - first day we where there we where all alone! Other days there where some kite-surfers because of lively, big waves (still possible to swim though, with a bit of caution)... More

We stayed for a week at Spinguera with the sole purpose of wanting to relax and get away from it all. What we found was exactly that, but in even more beautiful surroundings than I imagined. The place has been beautifully renovated with much love and attention to detail; it's truly a joy to spend your time there- even after... More
