Thomson rep, Amy was first class !! What the brochure says is correct. A very quiet ,restful hotel. How different to the two sprawled out hotels 200 yards away with almost 1000 guests. The cleanliness of the place could only be described as obssessive. I have never seen cleaner premises. Considering that everything has to be imported, the food was... More

Arriving late at night, check in was without any problems. Minibar empty for the rest of the week. Impossible to get any service after 23h. Clean over all, but rooms made up after 15h every day except for the check out day...Ok breakfast with omelet - pancake service. Pool very clean and quite. Taxi to Santa Maria is 3€ daytime,...

We stayed at the sabura for 11 nights in mid October. We had a fantastic time but with a few niggles (see below) the hotel was not full with only 6 couples (on average) and all of us were Mostly English. We chose this hotel as we wanted a quiet time with no children, it was great for this. We... More

We stayed here in January 2012 and were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The rooms were of a high standard, hot showers and good bar service. The food was at times interesting but always edible. If we got something that we didn't like there was no problem with sending it back and getting something else. The lunch and dinner service... More

It was our own fault in a way, not having done enough research about Sal, not having done enough research about the hotel, using TUI and booking an all inclusive holiday. My wife and I usually arrange our own holidays, booking flights and finding self catering cottages or villas wherever possible. We enjoy getting into the communities we visit, shopping... More

A reasonable place for a short stay in Sal, maybe if you're waiting for a flight to a more interesting island. Santa Maria doesn't really do independent hotels - almost everyone stays in big all-inclusives - and there's not really anything to do except the beach, but there are a few surfers, kiters in this place, convenient for Ponta Preta....

Great Budget-Hotel on the northern edge of Santa Maria, belgian owner. Appr. 5-10 min to the beach and city-centre. Comparatively spacious rooms, own warmwater provider (not always usual in Africa), very clean (daily clean service) and trustable (I left a camera and some money for some days). Rooms are nice and and simple, huge balcony, fairly silent, great view (north),... More

I stayed 10 days at the Sobrado. The hotel was full and I enjoyed my stay. The price is low, the hotel very well placed with a few minutes walk from the beach. I had a large room, cleaned everyday, towels changed every 2 days, bed linen once a week. I have discussed a few times with the owners who... More

First impressions of the building itself structurally was fine. Inside decoration was acceptable. The area was a completely barren building site completely surrounding the hotel, noise from tractors going back and forth constantly. Dirt everywhere from the construction - not able to use pool or feel comfortable in the outgrounds of the hotel. Receptionist was pleasant. Cleanliness - grubby bathroom,... More
