My husband and I stayed here for a week (9th July - 16th) and had the most wonderful time of our lives! The flight was 5 and a half hours long, and although there is no inflight entertainment, it went quick enough. I purchased a Thomson bag (which I highly recommend) contained a fleece blanket, a neck pillow and an... More

Loved our break from start to finish. The hotel was spotlessly clean, food catered for all tastes and was just too yummy, waist line suffered a little. This was definitely a chill out holiday, if you want excitement, go somewhere else. The trips we did, were perhaps not wise, an island tour by Land Rover was painfull, the rutted teraine... More

Tourism is new to Cape Verde so there aren't many hotels to choose from, basically we had a choice of two Rui hotels, both over 1200 rooms which is not what we would usually go for & although the Rui is nice, it's just too big. I don't think that we were there at peak season but it felt very... More

Cannot fault or recommend this hotel and resort highly enough. Us four ladies travelled there for 1 week in June just gone and it was a perfect pool, beach, sunbathing and sandy holiday. Massive resort, lots and lots of sunbeds dotted around various pools. Swim-up bar which is so refreshing, the other side of the bar being on the beach... More

For starters, I'd just like to say I'm not sure what the bad reviews are about because I really do love this hotel. I'm sorry to hear that anyone had a bad stay at such a wonderful hotel as I did not at all! Me and my family (party of 5) stayed at this hotel for the first time in... More

Just got back after a great two weeks away as a family. First of all I would like to say that I would definitely recommend this hotel resort, however there are a couple of things the hotel could rectify to make this fantastic place even better!! Negatives (only two): 1) When we entered our room there was a smell of... More
