We were really pleasantly surprised. We were met on arrival and shown to our room. It was really nicely finished and had a balcony overlooking the beach and sea and across to part of the town. The room had a able top fridge which was stocked with beer and soft drinks. We also used it for our own wine and... More

We enormously enjoyed our 7-day stay here. We stayed in two rooms, one of which had a lovely terrace with a sea view and a hammock. We were literally on the beach, and a five minute walk to the centre of Sal Rei. Breakfasts were excellent, served in a garden patio. Everything was spotlessly clean and comfortable, the hosts were... More

This place has lovely views and great owners sadly that did not overcome the issues with animals. As another review has said the family are great and such nice people but they love animals way too much. The write up says there are animals and we accept we may of overlooked reading TA reviews but they are allowed in eating... More

This place has stunning views and set in an ideal position. You can see the beach from your room and relax on a hammock and relax. Rooms are functional if a tad basic . There's a fridge but no kettle which is strange. Internet connection is basically useless and you need to find a local bar to get emails. I've... More

As we first put a step on the terrasse of our room, we were astonished by the view. First you can directly look at the sea and second there is a big turtle (Zafira) walking around in front of the terrasse. The atmosphere is very warm since the owners family lives on the property and they really care about everyone's... More

Very clean with nice beds, good view, friendly owner and good breakfast. Just a few steps from a great swimming beach -- can't beat the location, in fact. 5 minute walk into Sal Rei, where there are lots of nice restaurants and decent bars. Or walk down the beach in the opposite direction for beach bars and pure solitude. The... More

Excellent little guesthouse right on the shore of a beautiful beach. Rooms opening onto a lovely courtyard with palms and greenery. Good breakfast with homemade yoghurt and cheese. The hosts,a jovial Belgian (Garry?) and warm and friendly Cape Verdean (after whom the guesthouse named) made us most welcome. Walk left along the beach is just blissful. Lots of pure white... More

We spent a week in the top floor room, which was clean, spacious and had a very nice terrace with 180 degree view over the bay. The guest house is well placed, just a stones throw from the beach and a few minutes walk along the sand to the centre of town. There were two hammocks on the balcony and... More

A really nice guest house near the centre of Sal Rei and right on the beach. Excellent and spotlessly clean rooms with bigger than usual bathrooms. Mosquito screens are installed in the window openings. Wonderful sea view from (most of) the rooms. Very helpful owners with a small travel info center on their premises. Good price-quality ratio. Simple but good... More
