I've experienced some of the kindest treatment of all my travels since coming to Cape Verde, and this hotel is no exception. the staff is warm and helpful and just nice in many, many ways. The hotel itself is clean, well-run, and the food and services are good, overall. there are some small details with rooms and bathrooms that could... 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

The decor of this hotel was very modern and well decorated, both common areas and rooms. The rooms were a bit small and cramped but very nice just not a lot of room to move around. The food was very good and the staff was helpful and pleasant and spoke very good English. It was advertised that the hotel had... More

We liked it for a short stay. Its a good base as its just off the main square which surprisingly has free wifi. The hotel also has wifi at a reasonable cost. Walk around the front of the hotel grounds and turn left to discover a lovely pool area. The sun beds are a little iffy so test before you... More

On our first two nights in the Hotel in August last year the pool was closed and we were treated to a fashion parade and a graduation ceremony with accompanying very loud disco music until after midnight. On our last day someone removed money from my room. Upon being informed the manager made two comments. Firstly that it was my... More

Although the manager said later that guests were offered some other pool, nobody offered us nothing!! Moreover, since the hotel was in renovation, we had cold water in shower very often!!! At the...

The hotel was just what you need as a base for exploring downtown Mindelo and the harbor, or if you intend to travel on to Santa Antao, or visit the island of Sao Vicente. Restaurant and Service were excellent. The rooms are rather small (but we are used to that in Europe). On the other hand, the swimming pool and... More

Have travelled a few times to Mindelo and without doubt this hotel is the best on offer on the island. - Certainly better than the Foya Branca which is out of town. Reasonable rooms, good lively bar area and decent restaurant for breakfast. Service is all relative of course -generally speedy by local standards. Well located in the centre of... More

Clean and with a good service, always with African ritms... Ask for a room in the back if you want to sleep: the front in on the principal sqare of the town. Stand up early in the morning if you want to have breakfast.
