"Morabeza" is just a different hotel : top class with it's own very special authentic style, deeply reflecting the true CaboVerdian "no-stress" mentality. You literally feel the "family-spirit" of the hotel through the warmth and kindness of the personnel and staff with their special attention to you and deep proudness of making, keeping Morabeza what it is : unique !...

This was the most wonderful Hotel and great staff. We had a lovely room and the beach club was just perfect. The only problem that no one warned us about was the Bruma Seca which is the sand from the sahara. It blew in on our first day and stayed for the whole 10 days. We ended up wearing our... More

Very friendly people, great service, great food and an amazing beach. During the last years we've meet a lot of great people inside and outside of the hotel. And even if the island is very meagre landscape there are a lot of great spots to explore.

Just returned from 2 week stay at Morabeza. Overall very good. Staff friendly, rooms clean, pool areas ok, nice buffet breakfast and surround and perfect location to venture out into Sal and its wonderful beach. If I went back to CapeVerde I would go back to Morabeza. Only drawback the Wifi is a bit temperamental and they offer 3 packages... More

Just returned from 7 nights at the Morabeza and can honestly say this is a lovely hotel in an amazing location adjacent to the beautiful beach. We stayed on a B&B package as we wanted to try some of the local restaurants and not be tied to the hotel. The breakfast was adequate and on a par with European hotels... More

Our second visit in 5 Years and we will be back. The hotel is perfectly positioned for the Restaurants and bars of Santa Maria. Far enough from the same to be peaceful and relaxing. It has Old style charm mixed with contemporary service. The best thing is that the inebriate oiks can't afford it. Not a tattoo or football shirt... More

Hotel Morabeza was apparently the role model in it's day but has seen the effects of time. It feels a bit dated and is nothing fancy. Rooms are spacious but simple, moderate quality in furniture, bedding and towels. Quality of food at buffet breakfast is marginal - again, nothing fancy. However the beach side restaurant serves some of the most... More

We stayed in the "adults only" building, room 626, on the 1st floor, with a terrace which overlooks one of the 3 pools and a good part of the beach. The room was spacious, with enough big cupboards, but opening and closing them was very noisy (another system would be preferable). The bathroom is spacious as well, with a very... More
