We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Morabeza, where we enjoyed Xmas and New Year. This hotel is simply wonderful and is so far ahead of all the other hotels on Sal, that there really is no comparison. The charm and courtesy of the management and staff combine with the elegance of the whole establishment to elevate the... More

I stayed here two nights instead of going to Fogo (flights there canceled due to the volcano eruption) and maybe this disappointment affected me since I never really liked Sal, Santa Maria or Hotel Morabeza. The room was good however and there was a nice pool. The hotel felt a bit too spread out for my liking and restaurants were... More

Friendly staff, helpful, and the location in front of the beach and the sea, is very good. It is very good located in Santa Maria, next to the main street with restaurants and bars. The room is cleaned, well maintained. Nice day and night Entertainment is ok. The Cap Verdian Saturday evening dinner is to be done. One "bemol" only... More

We spent 9 days at the Morabezza in a ground floor junior suite facing the pool and looking out to sea and the setting is idyllic. Although we had a lovely relaxing stay there with our 13yr old son, the service in the dining rooms and bar areas is very strange.. with some of the staff it's almost as though... More

My husband and I ate at the Morabeza for his birthday on New Years Day. We wanted somewhere a little special. First impressions were great. The restaurant is all white on a terrace and looks beautiful. We weren't greeted particularly nicely and then it all went down hill from there. The food was lovely. The white wine was a little...

Beautiful setting in distinctly run down country - (reminds me of Greece 30 years ago) - hard on the beach. Lots of nice things to say bug you would expect that for the price paid - €200 per night. However it is the things missing that place this as 2/3 star. Cold pools, lack of ice machines, lack of food... More

We went here for a few drinks on Wednesday 7th January at lunchtime and enjoyed the quietness of the bar overlooking the water. The issue came when we paid. The bill for our drinks was 7 euros, we paid 20 euros and then given change back in escudos (which we have no issue with as we understand that is how... More

There is a nice beach club and lots of stuff to do: Tennis courts, 2 beautiful snooker tables, table tennis, fitness, mini golf etc. Few things... More

We stayed here over Christmas and New year, we booked bed and breakfast so we had the option to go out to local restaurants. The position of the hotel is fantastic, right on the beach with a beach bar and very close to the town centre. The hotel itself though had no atmosphere, we walked through several times at night...
