Not brilliant, but fine for a week's stay. Situated in a quiet residential area on the easterly side of Praia between the town beach (not good) and the small beach (much better) at Prainhaf. Just passed the beach is the nearest supermarket, a ten minute walk away. The reception staff were always friendly, helpful and had a good command of... More

A typical Pestana property with all the usual luxury elements and class you can expect from a Pestana hotel/resort. Located close to the beach and not too far from local hangouts like Kebra cabana. Access to airport is also quite easy and overall a great place to base out of during your stay in praia. Ask for rooms with waterfront... More

When in Satiago Island, Pestana Trópico is the only hotel for me. I keep coming back to Praia every six months for eleven years now and I do not search for any other hotel. It's a bit like home for me.

We stayed here last year & throughly enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. This year has been the same. The staff are extremely helpful & those that lack language skills, make up for it with enthusiasm & enjoy our attempts at speaking the language. Sometimes the staff demeanour may come across stern, but actually they are really lovely. Especially the pool side... More

This hotel has a good location, all the facilities one would expect, and decent sized rooms. The beds aren't all that great, but that is also true of other hotels in this corner of the world. This is also a large complex, so it feels a little impersonal. That being said, all of the main bases are covered, so staying... More
