“Nice hotel in the wrong place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

While on a return trip from some island hopping we had booked Cabo Verde for an overnight stay before flying back home. We thought the location would be nice along the beach while still fairly close to the airport and port of rafina. Howeve the surroundings of the hotel was very disappointing and without much activity. The hotel bar and restaurant were huge disappointments, even though one should think the 4 stars would guarantee some. The restaurant had 4-5 main dishes on the menu, only one of which was available.
The rooms, breakfast and the service of the front desk were fantastic though!

We stayed in Cabo Verde for one night only on our way back home. The staff of the hotel is very kind, but the hotel is nothing special. The rooms are big enough, but very plain. The whole hotel is starkly furnished. The poolbar looked nice, but empty, so we went somewhere else for drinks. Because of a wedding in another place we could not sleep with the windows open, but the airconditioning did not do much for cooling the room. Breakfast was very average with not many items to choose. We got the impression that with a little more attention Cabo Verde could improve a lot. The area around the hotel is not very nice. There are a few eateries, but none of them was very inviting.
The hotel is ok for a last night close to the airport, but there are probably nicer places available.

We stayed in this hotel before flying out from the airport the next day. The hotel was easy to find and we received a very friendly welcome. Clean and bright with lovely views over the bay. A nice pool and bar area. The room was spotless and spacious with a great balcony view. Not somewhere to go for the nightlife, but great if you prefer somewhere quieter like we do. Note that parking is on the road outside the hotel, but it's a quiet road so that wasn't a problem for us. Bar prices a bit steep, but that's not unexpected. Probably a lot cheaper in one of the nearby Tavernas. Restaurant was closed so I can't comment on the food, other than to say that breakfast was simple but good quality.

Very clean and nice hotel. The lady in the reception was very kind and friendly. The room is quite normal with a nice balcony viewed to the sea. A valuable 4 stars hotel especially in out of season. There is not much to do in the local area around the hotel except, just to walk in the nearby beautiful marine (photos enclosed). Breakfast was basic with a little amount of fresh vegetables. The hotel located about 40 minutes from the airport on a simple and clear direction – really good choice for a hotel near the airport.

We stayed here for one night after a 10 day trip to Greece. The reasons we choose this hotel - we had a hire car so it was easy to get to, didn't want a hotel right in the airport but it was only 30mins to the airport, by the sea and not in central Athens and a very reasonable price. We paid £50 for a double room with breakfast.
This hotel exceeded our expectations. Great value, excellent choices at breakfast with lovely sea views, comfortable clean rooms with balcony and views of the pool and sea, free wifi in the rooms. The staff were excellent - very friendly and helpful and very good customer service especially the guy who checked us in.
We went for a wander in the evening and after checking out other restaurants decided to return to the hotel for dinner. While the menu was not extensive the food we had was great and good value.
Would definitely stay here again and recommend it if you wanted a good value hotel by the sea within striking distance of the airport.

My wife and I spent just one night at Cabo Verde, the night we arrived in Athens airport (4/11/13) to begin a 33 day driving trip of Greece. The hotel was a bit challenging to find as we arrived in the general area after dark. It is a very nice hotel on the seashore of the Aegean Sea. It was very clean and has wonderful facilities. It would be a great place to vacation for a week or so. The staff was extraordinary. They understand the concept of customer satisfaction. If we are ever back in that area we will definitely stay there again. We highly recommend this non-luxurious but wonderful hotel. A special thanks to George and Akis (spelling). :-))
