Although we were a bit disappointed by mindelo itself, this hotel was more than a pleasant surprise. Very nice atmosphere, exceptionally welcoming staff, beautiful rooms and a good breakfast. They speak many languages and are very helpful with their tips.

Had 2 very enjoyable nights here. The staff were warm, friendly and very helpful. The ground floor room was clean, tidy and handy for a cooling dip in the small pool. The bed was really comfortable. Quiet, yet handy location. The building is really stylish. We highly recommend the Casa Colonial.

Our favorite place to stay during our two-week Cape Verde trip. A beautifully restored home on a quiet street in the heart of downtown Mindelo. We stayed one night in a room on the second floor in the rear of the hotel and then again in a room on the second floor that faced the street. Both rooms were great.... More

Dear Sir/Madame So sorry to hear your stay with us was not as enjoyable as we hoped. Could you let me know which room you were in so that we can make a not of that. Also, sorry about the tea - was it too cold or too weak. I'm actually Scottish (the Old Alliance) so whisky's more my drink.... More

Lovely converted colourful traditional house in centre of town owned by a British family. Small but very stylishly decorated room looking out onto small central courtyard with pool (more a cooling off than swimming pool on account of size). Roof terrace for breakfast.

I had a wonderful room by the swimming pool. It was quiet with a great bed. Breakfast is served either by the pool or on the rooftop. I was made to feel very welcome and as I was there for a full week, I got to hang out with the family a bit and felt quite comfy. Samira is a... More

We spent only one night in Mindelo because the focus of our holiday was hiking on St. Antao then beach sports on Sal. This restored colonial house in the centre of Mindelo really is beautiful and unusual. We were greeted with great warmth and met some nice people over the welcome drink. Arriving in the pretty open-air courtyard with its... More

Four of us stayed at Casa Colonial for 6 nights. From the minute we arrived the manager Samira made us feel welcomed with a bottle of ponche poolside. She is a warm and gracious manager. This is the best renovation of a colonial house we've seen--gorgeous dark wood floors, beautiful paint colors, tasteful furniture that's both modern but traditional, and... More

We stayed there a few nights. The building and rooms are very nice - renovated old colonial building (as the same suggests) with a small pool in open central area. We didn't use the pool but the day we left some dutch guys were trying to make a pool party and i feel this was an opportunity missed. In terms... More

Casa Colonial and especially her manager (SAMIRA) are superhelpful and friendly and a great location to stay. Whether you want to rent a car, get arround, kitesurf or need something. They are always there to help. Rooms are nice and atmosphere is great!
