I went with a friend in early December and had a great holiday. Loved the quietness of the hotel, friendliness of staff, spotless room and home cooking. Would highly recommend if someone is looking for a quiet hotel. 5 mins walk to the beach, 10 mins in to Santa Maria. Loved it.

Quiet and adults only – just what we wanted. Our room was in a perfect position and cleaned daily to a very high standard. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool was cleaned daily but it was freezing, may I suggest that some solar heating would be a good investment. The food was lovely, cooked to... More

My boyfriend and I went to Cape Verde just before new year for 10days, we weren't just spending new year there but also my boyfriends birthday. Flight was 5 and a half hours and then the transfer from the airport to the Sabura hotel was only about 30 minutes if that (we were the last ones off of the coach).... More

This hotel is for adults only, thus very quiet like i wanted to. Very friendly staff, that will do anything to make your stay pleseant. Rooms have all the comfort you need and are very clean. Going back next year in October.

I have given this hotel 2 only because of the cleanliness and lovely staff, otherwise it would be 0. There were 6 of us in 3 rooms booked in for 2 weeks as an all inclusive holiday. The only drinks we were allowed were white rum, bottled local beer, red and white wine, banana liqueur or bottled soft drinks. The... More

Me and my wife stayed for a week from 11 march. Don't believe bad reviews Sabura is ace for a three star hotel. Food good, staff excellent, rooms clean, drinks limited. If you just want to chill and relax its just the place.

I had read reviews of this hotel so had some idea of what I was going to... It's a very quiet peaceful hotel. If you want noise or hustle bustle go over the road to the riu. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the maids do a 100% job of the rooms every day. The meals are fine with a... More

I recently stayed at Sabura with a friend. Both of us found the staff there friendly and they would always go out of their way to ensure our stay was comfortable. The hotel is 3 star so if you need posh don't stay here. That said it was clean comfortable and quiet. We had everything we needed and more. The... More
