The hotel is very well situated in Sal Rei, in a quiet street. The bar, courtyard and rooms are charming, and decorated with a lot of taste. We loved it! Our stay was a real break from the rest of the world and very peaceful. Breakfast is really good and you can also have drinks in the bar during the... More

If you prefer to spend your vacation in a huge hotel with an easy access to the beach, overcrowded pools, outdoor activities and loud music, this is not an option for you. Migrante is quite the opposite: a quiet, peaceful, little guesthouse with tasteful decoration, great food and an easy-going ambiance. The beach is a bit far, like a 20... More

Sal Rey is not the prettiest towns I have visited but this hotel defenitely is! It has been renovated in such a way that it feels like it has been preserved very well and never changed in a 100 years. Run by a lovely couple that make you feel at home straight away. We'd come back any time!

We could not have picked a better place to stay on Boavista. The beautiful colonial house with it's little relaxing spots and corners felt like a home away from home from the moment we stepped in. Clean room and public spaces, comfy beds, good water pressure, cold beer - what more do you need? The owner Toni is a great... More

Walking into the Migrante is like teleporting to another dimension from the hustle and bustle of the Cape Verde streets. This colonial style building with it's peaceful central courtyard has been loving restored from it's former ruins. Toni, the host, is as charming as the building and a wealth of knowledge about what to do and see on the island,... More

We didn't stay here although the accommodation looks lovely, we came to this Guest House just for drinks on both our visits to Boa Vista, lovely to sit in the courtyard and have a nice cool bottle of Coke. Not a lot to do in Sal Rei so it would be a shame for anyone to miss this little gem

A boutique, charming, beautiful, slightly boho guesthouse that is a delight. A very authentic colonial house that is set in the middle of Sal Rei and a real treasure. The hosts are as beautiful and charming as their house and cannot do enough for their guests. They even arranged for my 5 year old, Poppy Loveday, to spend a day... More

Migrante Guesthouse is a beautiful old house in the centre of Sal Rei. It has only four rooms, which are all decorated with style. Christiano, his wife and staff are very helpful. Read the description carefully: this is an old wooden house. Yes, the rooms can be noisy because they are not isolated. But the bar below closes at 10.... More

For the second time in Migrante after three years, this guesthouse has a unique and priceless quality: there you feel at home. Great atmosphere, friendly crew, beautiful and clean rooms and good location (close to the main square and the beginning of Estoril beach but in a quiet position) do the rest.

Migrante was a real highlight of our trip. Situated bang in the middle of Sal Rei, it's within a walking distance from fabulous beaches, nice restaurants and ATMs. The hotel is tiny, with a bar doubling up as a reception and restaurant, a courtyard for socialising and four guest rooms. The hotel is beautifully designed with vintage rustic decor. Our... More
