I have spent a month in this Residencial and I really enjoyed it. It is very confortable with vast rooms and good beds. You are just in the middle between the beach front and the city center. It will take you only 5 minutes to walk there. The service is very good and the rooms are seriously cleaned every day.... More

This place sits high on a hill with views to the water from some of the back rooms. My room was a good size and clean. The access at night via a poorly lit dirt track might worry some. But like much of the rest of Cape Verde, staying here rather begs the question of "why bother?". Cape Verde is... More

We stayed at Residencial Alto Fortim two times in July 2014 (1 and 2 nights) when stopping over on our way to / from Santo Antão. The French owner is extremely helpful with information, driving guests to the port or airport etc. On our first evening, we even could get a dinner there. The rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast... More

With the crew, Dani & Salik, he took a novice to a competent Marlin fisherman. The hotel although basic is clean, tidy and comfortable. Being high you have excellent... More

We stayed here 3 nights and 2 days. We almost moved after the first night to the Porto Nova in town, but we were worried about too much noise from the nightclub for our children and hoped that this hotel would get better. Pluses: somewhat nice view of the bay, quiet location, nice owners, a chance to practice French. Many... More

I have just spent a week at Alto Mindelo and my husband was there, before me, for an extra week. We found this Residencial excellent. The owners run the business really well. They keep to arrangements, provide help and advice when asked, and provide a great introduction to the Cape Verde islands. They are also very welcoming. The rooms are... More

Really nice hotel. Great ocean view, good location, 4 minutes walk to the beach, which will do you good after eating lots and lots of very delicious food. Friendly staff,really makes you feel welcome and at home, they also give you good tips where to take a walk or which way to the market. We totally enjoyed our stay here.... More
