Had a lovely relaxing time here , staff are all polite hotel and grounds are spotlessly clean, there are loads of sunbed so not getting up early to reserve them. The hotels beach is clean too well maintained the only problem is if your down on the beach loads of dogs hang around and pee up your sunbeds and towels... 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

Heard mixed reviews about Cape Verde so decided to try it out for ourselves to make up our own minds. Here's our thoughts, positive and negative about Santa Maria and the Morabeza; Negatives - At check in, we were told we had to pay for wifi but that they didn't tell us is that you need to pay per device!...

This is the only time we have ever returned to the same hotel and we were not disappointed. We come for the warm weather and totally relax. This is definitely the best hotel on the island and we came through Captivating Travel again, who are a small travel company whose personal service is beyond anything we have ever experienced. They... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this excellent hotel with its great location right at the beach and only a few steps from the town centre. It's very quiet at night though and you can be sure to get a good night's sleep in the comfy beds. Room and bathroom were kept very clean. Staff was friendly, breakfast was extensive... More

Does everything as it states - it was so peaceful and relaxing but also a few minutes walk to the centre of town to visit all those lovely bars and eating places. No need to reserve sun beds etc and a great breakfast Buffett. Just need to sort out the tea and coffee. Also offer free wifi please. Although this... More

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
