Stayed at Blue Bell in February and had a great time during my stay. The place just changed the management recently and you can see that everybody is working hard to make your experience as good as possible. Friendly team and probably the best restaurant in town. The morning breakfast offered a good variety of products which gave us enough... More

we stayed for two nights and had a good time. The hotel recently changed owner and a lot of improvements are done. The beds were good, the food was excellent and the staff was wonderful. We also had WiFi in the dining room and reception. When taking a shower we told the staff and they started a pump right away.... More

Based on previous reviews we were a little disappointed when our accommodation had to be changed to this hotel. However, the management has recently changed and the new staff are working hard to please. Undoubtedly there is much work to do in the hotel, but it is clean, airy, the bed is comfortable and the room has the basics required.... More

In most places, this hotel would be woefully inadequate. But by the standards that seem to prevail in the lesser known Cape Verde islands, it was quite pleasant. The rooms were spacious, some had balconies and all had decent sized windows. The breakfasts and dinners were whimsical but filling. The staff were pleasant. The hotel was centrally situated in the... More

We came here for dinner on Christmas Day. The food was good but the music, though well-intentioned, was much, much too loud. (Does a violin really need to be amplified?!) The result was that conversation was impossible and we left as soon as we could.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Arranged with an aluguer driver an early morning pick up. Driver showed up at the hotel late at night to cancel arrangement. The hotel staff decided not to wake me up for this and arranged another aluguer so that I could do the next morning's trip as intended. All this while I slept. Rooms are... More

A big big big yes to Marcel, Director of this modest but most welcoming of accommodations on our trip and stay at t the Blue Bell in Cap Vert. A welcome drink and the warmest reception, delicious cocktails, real coffee, perfect breakfasts and dinners. The Blue Bell is a two-star place in the guide books, but top marks for service... More
