We went to Cape Verde for the first time after several friends said how good it is, We arrived in the rain(late November) and had a week of non stop cloud. Apparently this is very uncommon as the week previous was sunny and the day we left not a cloud to be seen. The hotel is spotless. The room clean tidy and large. The resort is quite spread out so if you are not good at walking be careful where they place you as there are no lifts. The food is excellent and if anyone moans then they are extremely fussy. Every taste is catered for but as these hotels are the food is repetitive. The themed restaurants are ok the best is the African set down by the swimming pool.
Entertainment at night is what it is go with it.
If going into Sal Rei please beware of a few things. (1), Don't go with your tour company as they charge 25 euros each. You can get a taxi from the hotel for 10 euros each way.(2) When leaving your taxi don't be pulled in by the guy who says he is a waiter at your hotel and is on a day off so he can show you the sights of which there aren't any then he takes you to his brothers shop and wants to charge 150 euros for a picture and a bracelet. Be strong as we only paid 15 euros in the end after a lot of haggling. The people are lovely but stand firm. We said we only had 25 euro and we had to pay 10 to get back.
The Quad biking was fun. Lots of entertainment ie darts, bowls archery pool polo. We enjoyed our stay very relaxing but would not go back to this particular island.
