Just returned from a week here and had a fab time! Perfect for a chilled out relaxing holiday. Hotel and pool area are clean and well maintained. Our room was lovely- very clean with a nice balcony. Excellent choice of food, there is definitely something for everyone. We also ate at the Cape Verde restaurant which was good and nice... More

Cape Verde (or Cabo Verde) is on same latitude as Barbados but 3 hours closer and no red-eye flight back home makes sense if your want a week away in the sun. Saying that, there appears to be a constant wind during the day and was cloudy on a couple of days. But if that was the downside of the... More

Spent 11 nights here in early March. As far as all inclusive hotels go, this was by far the best we have experienced in terms of value for money, choice of food and drink, cleanliness, facilities and friendliness and helpfulness of staff and reps. All of the good things have already been mentioned in previous reviews so no need to... More

This hotel is lovely, the staff are very helpful, food very good. The weather can be cloudy/windy this time of year and the sea can be rough, but this does not spoil anything, as the swimming pools are warm and inviting plus it has a jacuzzi. It's a lovely place to just relax and go whale watching (saw 4) although... More

This is the 3rd time we have been to this hotel and it's still great. We had a nice room with a sea view. All the workers are happy and like to have a chat. The food was good with lots to chose from. The only thing that let it down was the holiday reps but that not down to... More

I was concerned that there is probably not much more I could add about this hotel. It does what it says on the tin., No it isn't 5 star but this is Africa for goodness sake and tourism only started there in 2007. The hotel is however absolutely beautiful with cleanliness that puts our cleaners to shame let me tell... More

Fantastic, helpful ,friendly staff. Nothing is too much trouble you are always greeted with a smile and you don't have to tip the staff every time they just give 100% so at the end of the holiday its a pleasure to be able to give a little something extra. If you are wanting to take anything they are really grateful... More
