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

We stayed at the Morabeza for a week B&B with our five year old in early April. Having never been to the hotel or for that matter to Cape Verde before, we weren't sure what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised on all fronts. The setting of the hotel is fantastic - it's grown from a private 1960s holiday... More

We stayed for a week and had a very pleasant experience. The Hotel is Clean. Service is efficient and discrete. It has the islands best bar and one of the best restaurants. The room might not be the most personal or cozy and the bed is overly soft but hey, who stays in the room... Breakfast is very good with... More

The hotel is probably among the best in town, with a lovely beach-side setting and plenty of space so that it never really seems over-crowded. Our suite was excellent, with loads of room for two of us, including a private balcony. For the most part, staff were friendly and reasonably efficient. The only real negative was the food. Breakfast was... More

Not much to add about this hotel that has not been written in the other reviews, but it clearly deserves its 'excellent' rating. The hotel has a wonderful position being an easy walk to Santa Maria but very quiet, with an excellent beach in front of the hotel. Our room was in the executive wing which has larger rooms; its...
