We decided to stay at Perola a few nights before our morning departure back to the States. We had a list of hotels in a guide book for Cape Verde. Before deciding we called the hotel up to ask about the amenities and price. The gentleman on the phone gave us a reasonable price, and so we booked with them.... More

I thought this was a perfectly nice hotel, with helpful staff and good rooms, at a fair price. the proprietress was particularly helpful. she answered a number of questions and provided detailed descriptions of how to get around the island, and everything she mentioned was accurate. overall, I think Cape Verdeans are just exceptionally nice people, from a warm culture,...

The Perola hotel is located near to the center of Praia and close to the diplomatic area. For a short stay of 1-3 nights it's fine but in general it looks like the best times are some years ago. Close behind it looks like a new hotel building is in construction and in 1-2 years the Perola should be "up... More

I found this hotel quite charming, and it was perfect for my purposes. Our group of 9 from the U.S. travelled to Cape Verde in May 2013, 4 islands during the first week including Brava, the homeland island of my family, and arrived in Praia on Day 6, a Sunday, The rest of the group left for Boston on the...

The hotel is on the sea side, maybe 500m from the old town (there are public buses that plow the route often). Noise is not really a problem, and staff is friendly and helpful. There is an excellent restaurant right next door, and basic food can be found in a gas station nearby. Functional rooms, some of which are truly... More

The hotel scene in Praia is quite limited, especially in the 3 star range. Perola is probably among best of the lot, but rather due this lack of competition than own merits. The rooms are OK, though some pieces of furniture may be a bit old. Depending on the room, it can get a bit noisy (I spent three nights... More

I cam to Praia for three nights and arrived quite late in the evening. The short (12 minute) drive from the airport brought me to the hotel. The staff were welcoming and gave me a great room which looked onto the street, but also towards the bay. The room (101) was spacious, extremely clean and comfortable. Breakfast leaves a lot... More

I stayed here for the first time. The hotel staff was very accomodating, and tried to meet any needs that arose. Its a great location. The room was a little small but really clean and comfortable. They provided a full breakfast. Nice open and clean common areas. Would stay again.
