This hotel is far from a 5* and it should not be advertised as such. If you're expecting luxury and 5* go elsewhere. Me and my boyfriends were in Rui (28/01 - 02/02/2016) at check in we were told that we had an upgrade, I thought "yay!!, amazing!!" after being delayed in Sal for 3 days but the room was... More

We went for an all inclusive ,two week holiday in January, to this remote but beautiful hotel. We were having a great holiday enjoying the food and lovely weather. The hotel beach was a favourite spot and most days we paddled as the red flag suggested the surf was too strong for swimming. However on our second Sunday the yellow... More

This was our first visit to Cape Verde and certainly won,t be our last. The hotel exceeded our expectations, from the quick and easy check in, bags ported to our room, and the cleanliness of the hotel and room. All the staff we came across were extremely polite helpful and friendly, nothing was ever too much trouble and they always... More

The hotel whilst on the large side was still easily managed. The room was on the 2nd floor with a sea view (we asked for this in advance) it was fairly basic but we didn't intend spending too much time in there, didn't notice if there was a tv, can watch this at home when it's raining. The beach is... More

This Hotel is quite tired looking. Tiles round pool need attention, but pool itself very spacious. Food very good and always hot, after a week could do with a change of menu. Room very good, bed quite confortable. Would we go back, maybe not to this Hotel, would like to try the other side of the island. Sea very rough,... More

The hotel is very large but exceptionally well run by a Portugese management team and 400 plus staff of which 80 per cent are locals all are very friendly and are always up for a chat. The hotel and grounds are spotless and very well maintained, our room 2175 overlooked the beach on the 3rd floor, no lifts, was very... More

Hotel is a massive resort with 2 storey blocks spread out across the resort. We were in a block on the ground floor on the far right hand side away from the main building. This didn't bother us too much but could imagine if had children and left something in the room would be irritating having to keep walking backwards... More
