Recently returned from a magical two weeks in this wonderful place. Having previously visited Cape Verde and staying at one of the RIU all inclusive monoliths, this was a polar opposite experience and in our opinion much better. Cape Verde could develop fast as a tourist destination as holidaymakers seeking winter sun (there's plenty of it there) look for alternatives... More

Considering the price we paid (100 euros a night) we were very disappointed to be in a room which had no outside windows (bottom floor on the back of the property). The room was very hot and no possibility to open windows to get some ventilation. There was no ventilation fan or airco either, so we didn't sleep much. The... More

Beautiful building, this a retro hotel very near the beach, with lovely and helpful staff (they made us a take-away lunch because we didn't have time to go shopping before our boat trip and they found someone to take us snorkelling). The rooms are basic but have everything you need.

Casa Velha is a great place to spend your holiday in Boa Vista. We were in the penthouse apartment, which has a great roof terrace with sea-view. The accommodation is clean, well designed and the manager (Michela) organized trips and gave tips for good restaurants. All staff is very friendly, though some hardly speak English. Breakfast consists of dairy and... More

Casa Velha is a stunning place. Everything is at its right place. The best part: the beautiful peaceful interior patio, perfect to read a book, drink a coffee and hang out with birds. The beach and surf clubs are just a short walk away and the staff is friendly and they make the best butter cookies. I would definitely recommend... More

Casa Velha was a really good place to be. Simple but clean accommodation with friendly staff. The appartment was equiped quite well, we missed only the detergencies and towels for the dish washing. The Casa Velha is only some hundred meters from Sal Rai with some nice restaurants and only hundred meters from a nice beach. Only drawback is the... More

What's not to love about this place, this island and it's beautiful people? We've been to Boa Vista 4 times now, in 2 years, just returned. Casa Velha, located a stone's throw from the stunning Estoril and Chaves Beaches with their smattering of laid back beach bars and cool surfer dudes, is always our first choice in Boa Vista. We...

Downstairs apartment a little dark and lacking utensils but the hospitality and location were stunning. Staff are so friendly and nothing is any trouble at all. Walk to town centre is 8 mins and many fab restaurants and supermarkets

This was my first to Casa Velha and the place on arrival.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and were available to assist in arranging places to eat as well as tours. The apartments are spacious and designed with an eye for detail and kept immaculately clean. The roof terrace is a lovely peaceful space to relax and enjoy... More
