“Great place, convenient and comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this rather sweet bed & breakfast type apartment hotel. The location was great being pretty much on the beach and near to the town. Got a lovely apartment with private balcony which was spacious, clean, comfortable and had a lovely view of the beach and village. A place to recommend and to return too.

Room Tip: The private balcony room was superb, however I have to say after first nearly having stayed in a cor...

Ca'Nicola is a very nice hotel with well maintained apartments. The stuff is very friendly and helpful and tries to make your stay as nice as possible. The location of the hotel is perfect. Just some steps and you're at the beach.
The hotel is located in a small street in Sal Rei, but you don't notice that the town is close by.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a with a balcony on the top and with beach view.

Good location on the beach, short walk downtown. Italian owner and coffee bar by the reception. Good apartments, but still possible to get breakfast. Ask for apartment with privat terrace or balcony. A few apartments share area. Best apartments has seawiev.

Room Tip: Ask for private balcony/ terrace. I had to share area with apartment next by

We stayed here for one week. Great flat - big and modern, good shower in the bathroom, and a big bedroom. The madrass was a bit on the hard side, and the mosquite net didn`t cover the bed.
Also, just a fan over the bed - no AC.

The best thing was the private balcony we had - with a seaview out of the corner.

Would definitly recommend this place - location is great, and the beach is just 100 meters away.

Room Tip: We stayed in 9D

Ca Nicola is nice with clean and safe rooms a few minutes walk from sal rej. I only staid there once but every year I keep trying to go back and flight make it imposible......Breakfast is good and has more than a continental but if you had lobster the previus night there is no need for an american breakfast.Get a Quad Bike and see the landscape your life will change and feel like an explorer in a desert island. Owner is very friendly and will show you around the vilage, book your restaurant and any other travel you might need while there...Go to santa Monica

Room Tip: take a room with a view

Ca Nicola is in a lovely spot close to really spectacular beaches. I travelled alone (I am a 30 year old woman) and felt totally and utterly safe. The staff at Ca Nicola are Italian and although their English is about as good as my Italian (almost non-existant) they looked out for me while I was there with lots of smiles and waves.

I hired a quad bike for 4 days while I was on Boa Vista and visited some amazing beaches. There are not many sealed roads so a 4WD or a quad is essential if you want to explore.

Really a fantastic holiday, lovely clean, safe accomodation, perfect for relaxing and enjoying some winter sun. I'll be back!

We only stayed here for a single night as our flight to one of the other islands had been cancelled. Luckily for us it was right opposite the hotel we were staying in the night before so we only had to cross the road to check in. The layout of this hotel is a little bit more unusual than other hotels in that the room did sort of have a balcony only it was outside the front door of the room and not the back. It was also not quite outside, as it was on the walk way to other rooms and although there is a view facing outwards, this also overlooks the reception and bar area as well below. And when I say room, I think it might be more accurate to describe this place more as an apartment.

This was the first place that we stayed in that had a kitchen area in it too which was useful for making your own food – a handy thing for vegetarians who don’t always manage to find the right things to eat in restaurants. The kitchen area had a full size fridge, proper cooker and sink area as well as a proper table and chairs to eat off. You can also eat on the table and chairs outside the room, but people will be passing all the time coming to and from their rooms.

The bedroom area was clean and tidy, though there was no view from the window. The bathroom was also of a decent size and again like the rest of the apartment was clean with nothing to complain about, though there were a couple of mosquitoes around.

Downstairs is the bar area and the place where the breakfast is served. We did have a couple of beers in the bar in the evening though I don’t think that they were particularly cheap. There were a few people drinking in there in the evening. However, you could also just put some beers in the fridge and sit on your balcony should you wish or go into the nearby Sal Rei.

The breakfast was typical of a lot of the breakfasts you have in hotels in Cape Verde, lots of coffee, cheese, ham, fruit and cakes. The place was quite busy whilst we were there with all the tables being taken up. This might be seen as a child friendly sort of place as there were a lot of children around.

The location is excellent for getting into town as it’s about a five minute walk away. There are also some beach bars in the other direction that serve food and drinks. One is a water sports place that does some decent vegetarian food (pasta) though might be considered pricey for what it is.

The owner of the hotel is the brother of the girl that runs Spinguera – hence there being a lot of promotional leaflets about. For those that haven’t been, I think it is definitely worth a visit.

Overall, a decent place to stay, a good location with nothing to complain about.
