A fantastic place to stay, set in a secluded location away from the main tourist areas offering a 'behind the scenes' insight into life in Cape Verde. Stan and Rafhaële were exceptional hosts and even though, through my own ignorance, I was unable to speak their language they made every effort to make me feel part of the family. The... More

Unforeseen I passed the residencia Goa visiting the area of Calhau. Just been invited for a coffee in the bar by a friend, I was totally surprised of the peace and tranquility of this small family owned hotel. The earthy architecture of the hotel, the wind protected garden with loungers and hammock, direct views from the rooms and restaurant to... More

we have been traveling quite a lot but staying with Stan and Raphaele is really something special: a really warm, calm and relaxed atmosphere, all time an open ear for questions, and a help whenever you need it. although calhau is a little bit remote on sao vicente, Stan helps you to get to the next restaurant (and back), and...

We spent 4 weeks traveling around Cape Verde and this was our favorite hotel. Very stylish decor with large airy rooms. the food was excellent and thoughtfully prepared and presented. The owners went out of their way to be helpful on several fronts, although there were a few minor charges for things that really should be complimentary. The location is... More

That is the first thing Raphaelle told us when we got there: "Feel at home", and it was true. Great walks, beautiful views... Raphaelle and Stan made our stay a great one, they just did everything to make us feel comfortable. At evening the caipiroska that Stan prepared for us and a nice chat and then Raphaelle's cooking which is... More

My family just finished an 8 day vacation in Cape Verde. We stayed at 5 different hotels on several different islands, and the Residencial Goa was hands-down the most wonderful place of our entire trip. The rooms are huge and airy; the hotel is directly on a gorgeous beach. The owners, Raphaele and Stanislaus, went out of their way to... More

Impeccable. Tranquil. Stylish. What more could you ask? Well, a sandy beach not far away? (It must be every bit of 10 metres from the residencia.) Interesting walks? (Only if you like extinct volcanoes, deserted beaches, a picturesque village, even a mountain or two.) Good food? (Raphaëlle is a superb cook.) But the real magic of Residencial Goa is the... More
