This is really more of a review of the hotel owner, Rosalina, then of the hotel. She is quite simply the best. She will - for a small fee - pick you up from the airport or dock, give you great advise, be flexible about checking in/out and cooks great meals. The hotel itself is undergoing some renovations currently, but... More

Rosaline is very helpful and certainly make you feel at home , However the rooms are not a very good standard , and not clean enough , hot water and showers are also a poor standard. I would suggest this hotel needs a bit of TLC . When your paying for a room then you are entitled to a certain... More

The location is on a quiet back street smack in the centre of town and the price reflects the value, but the real gem of this place is the warm, friendly and slightly eccentric proprietress, who's really willing to walk the extra mile to make your stay as memorable and enjoyable as possible. Rosalina, a Cape Verdian recently returned from... More

Rosaline is a friendly, helpful person who created a nice and very comfortable place in the middle of Praia. It is clean and the rooms colourful. The breakfast is more than you can expect, coffee, fresh juice and handmade omlettes. We really felt at home :)

I'm giving the RosyMar an excellent review due to the owner Rosalee and her son Isaac - they where beyond helpful on our recent trip to Cabo Verde from California, US. We were overwhelmed when we first got off the plane and headed here because we heard the owner spoke English and we needed some guidance. She took us in... More

I booked to stay at this b&b after reading the reviews on Trip advisor. The friendliness of the staff does not compare to the other places available in Cape Verde. Dont expect hot running water unless you request for it when you are booking a room, and even then do not expect the confirmation email to be truthful - I... More

I stayed here with my wife on the last night of our one-week trip to Cape Verde. We arrived later in the day and left very early the next morning, so I didn't spend much time at the hotel. Here's the useful stuff I noted: The staff was very helpful. They provided advice to us via email before our arrival... More

Be careful, the website promises far more than you will find. No Internet in the room,s no hair dryer , microwave etc. A lot of promises however not provided. We have been such disappointed that we left even before we stayed for one night.
