A very good experience, and, considering the local offer, certainly the best choice. Reception should give advise against burlar on the beach just in front, instead of finding it funny... In general the service was very good at all levels.

We had originally booked into an alternative (cheaper) hotel for our 9 night stay in Sal. Our original hotel was a building site (literally) - awful. We put up with it for 4 nights and then, in desperation, checked out and booked into the Morabeza for the final 5 nights of our stay, which we had walked past and seen... More

I was here some years ago and it was great! The best thing it was being very close to the beach. The rooms were clean, very professional staff, and the food was very tasty. i don´t remember much...that the hotel was just fine. I spend more time on the lovely beach than inside the hotel. I´ll would go back for... More

This was the second time that we stayed at Morabeza, after our fantastic experience last year. This year we decided to do something different, so we travelled to Santa Maria on purpose to stay at Morabeza. And we were not disappointed. The service remains excellent, the staff is absolutely friendly, and the location is idilic. It is true that Morabeza... More

We arrived very late and had a quick and efficient check-in. The hotel is located on a very nice beach close to the center of Santa Marta. So you have both, a quiet beach if you walk 100 meters(and onwards) to the right, and a busy beach with a jetty, restaurants/bars and lots of nice locals 100 meters to the... More

My partner and I stayed in this hotel last year. We thought it would be the only hotel in Sal (Cape Verde) where we would be able to rest and enjoy the beautiful setting. It was so. This year, for the first time, we went to the same country and the same hotel. That about says it all. Never in... More

After initially being allocated a room that wasn't what we booked, things looked up. We had a sea view with a great view of the beach, which offers great people watching opportunities as the locals tend to congregate there in the early evening. None of the restaurants offer particularly good value, but the quality of the food is good. Staff... More

I generally though this was a lovely place. We've been staying here on two separate occasions, and it enjoyed it both times. It has a reasonably high standard but still retains a familial feel, which, together with its great location, is one of the main reasons why we came back. I must agree with some prevs reviws that the food... More
