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

Hotel Sabura is a very restful place to stay. Very clean, friendly and helpful staff, food average and adequate. Only draw back it is a very windy place. Otherwise we recommend it to any one who wishes to have a relaxing holiday. Pam and Bob W

Still here actually! Pro's: clean comfortable, good food and drink, friendly helpful staff. Staff work hard all day maintaining the accommodation inside and out. Near to town, close to the beach. Town is a 30 minute walk away. Staff English and other languages is as good if not better than island locals, despite other traveller reviews. Cons: wifi is available... More

Hotel Sabura is a good low cost option for staying on Sal. That said, I would avoid at all costs going Full Board (we were B&B) as the dining room has a very depressing ambiance and there are many far nicer places to eat in the local town which is around a 15min walk or EUR 4 taxi trip.
