Hotel of a good size, not too big. Rooms with the necessary confort, seaview, very quiet and stil only just near the village of Santa Maria. Excellent food in the different restaurants but also possible to go to the village to drink and eat at really good prices. Lot of sportfacilities at the hotel or nearby like kitesurfing, windsurfing, diving,... More

This hotel continues to offer a high standard of service to its guests. We are now on year 7 of returning and that alone speaks for itself! The staff, without exception, are friendly and courteous - which includes everyone from front of house staff to those who work diligently behind the scenes. The hotel improves each year - the gardens... More

This was Our first experience of a sun package holiday and our first trip to Cape Verde. Once we got through passport control and the muddled 'entry tax' fiasco....our competent holiday reps were ready and willing to help and inform. Bus transfer was swift - 15 mins to Hotel? What a lovely hotel Morabeza is and its a great location... More

Very friendly and exceptionally clean throughout … staff sometimes come across as not interested but I believe its just the language difference, that's as much our fault ! Executive rooms with sea view worth the extra cost for the privacy, some of the garden rooms have main paths directly outside just feet away from your outside sitting area, not for... More

The hotel was everything we expected and the whole booking, travel and transfer process was first class thanks to the team at Captivating Travel and Barracuda Tours. I just wish the people in Sal would smile more, with the exception of the staff in both hotel bars who were always cheerful....could have been the Grog......it always seemed like everything was...

One of the most spacious hotels I have ever stayed in. I thought the grounds were exceptional & with 3 pools and herds of sunbeds & flocks of umbrellas there is more than enough for everyone even when the hotel is full. All of this fronts onto a narrow path before a fantastic sandy beach. The food & atmosphere at... More

The hotel was good overall, and we were allocated a two bedroomed apartment for some reason, although there were no cooking facilities. The apartment was a bit dated, with an old fashioned TV. One of the ceiling light fittings in the living area was broken, but even so, everything worked OK. There were too few electric sockets for the 21st... More

The island of Sal is arid and windy. Hotel Morabeza is a peaceful oasis. We were 3 adults staying in a "family suite" (2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, very elegant and spacious) Welcome at reception was friendly and efficient and fuss-free. We were on the Bon Appeitit meal plan, which proved to be a good choice. There's a good variety... More

Food here was great. Only criticism is that there was hardly any salad or veg choice, carrots,cauliflower, beans and lettuce was about it so if you are a picky eater or have an allergy , then this holiday is not for you. Beach was lovely, staff lovely. We didn't like the fact that when its barbecue night , they close... More

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
