The location of this hotel is perfect! It is a minute walk from shops, restaurants and the waterfront. The rooms are clean and well furnished and the staff are very friendly. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a central hotel in Mindelo. I would also recommend that if you stop at the bar you pick up a glass... More

The room was clean and comfortable, but no chairs are provided.The en-suite shower was clean and everything worked OK. The window shutters are noisy if the weather is windy, and if you want them open, which is nice, there is no way to keep them open, which is nuisance. Wi-Fi is quite expensive - surely all good hotels should provide... More

First the best bits which for me were the great central location on the square with a nice bar overlooking it (do check out the gelateria just beyond the square- is that right? I mean ice cream cafe anyway). Music & African footie on TV added colour. I also thought that the breakfast buffet was good with a big selection... More

Dear Tastydogs, Thank you for your comment. You are absolutely right when you state that we have to balance the events with guests' s stays. We are changing our policy in order to have less night events. However there are times as Carnival and New Year' s Eve that are important in Mindelo and that we will maintain and inform... More

A good central location in a busy square but surprisingly not over noisy in our room overlooking the square. It was good for 'people watching' and had lovely sunset views. We were worried to find a 'Carnival Queen' competition taking place on arrival on a Saturday night, but the colourful, noisy celebration ended quickly at midnight and we enjoyed sitting... More

The pluses: Very nice rooms, modern and clean. Very helpful staff. Free internet, including in the room. Air conditioning is great. The minuses: The noise from the street is permanent, so bring your earplugs or join the party in the terrace. The pool should be cleaner and it's infrastructure could be renewed. The gym is also dated.

We've stayed in this hotel in December 2013 around new years eve. The hotel itself is nice and very convenient to visit Mindelo and enjoy its interesting cultural life, namely live music places around this lovely little town. All the staff was as nice as locals usually are and ready to comply with the guest requests. However, although we've underlined... More

The Porto Grande is a nicely located fine hotel with restaurant, bar, pool and gyms, decent food, good breakfast and very friendly service. The pace and design reminds of the 70s when it was still cool to have a big brandy after diner and smoke a cigar. Rooms are small, beds a bit tough, but the all-together vibe of a... More
