Great place to stay during a business trip but not during a vacation. TV didn't work, WiFi limited to small lobby only, no room service. Hotel restaurant had great food! No swimming pool nor fitness center.

I had a chance to stay there for two different nights on my trip to Sal. The hotel provides shuttle service from the airport to hotel, which will save you some money if taking taxi.

great for stay travelling to or from Praia. Staying in Praia you might like to stay more central. Since my last stay all things are better. Restaurant in same building is a plus, so is free wi-fi.

The accomadacions are not that bad. But not so clean. In all my stay there, never did they change the sits and totles. They have a restaurante, it's good, but not cheap. They also have problems with the room water (hot). It's all I can say, see for your self, or better don't see!
