We spent two nights in Rossymar Inn at the end of December. We booked our room by email directly with the owner Rosalina, who confirmed us the following services: breakfast of our choice, private bath, room service, nice terrace and transportation from the airport. The first surprise was that nobody was waiting for us at Praia airport. However, it was... More

We had just 1 night stay in Praia on the way to the way to Maio. I read trip advisor on where to stay for the night and RosyMar Inn came up. Great place to stay. Rosalyn picks you up from the airport and takes you to her place. Comfortable bed and great breakfast at a time that suits you.... More

I spent one night here and we loved this place. Even if we did a late check in, Rosalina managed to prepare a nice breakfast for both of us. The room is clean and nice (the price is affordable) and it is close to everything but don't expect too much since you are not paying for a five star hotel.

The negative ratings here really need to be adjusted for unrealistic expectations: the Rosymar Inn is a family-run residencial (B&B, guesthouse, pension, etc) not a luxury hotel. The facilities are simple but clean and better than many similar places I've stayed at in Europe. Having spent a couple of nights in other hotels in Praia (which is on the expensive... More

Rosalina's place is quite an experience, if you are flexible and relaxed and open to the fact that really you are staying in someone's home. This is not a hotel; but all the better for it, if you value meeting interesting people over the guarantee of a perfect shower at all hours. The location in the middle of Plato is... More

This is really more of a review of the hotel owner, Rosalina, then of the hotel. She is quite simply the best. She will - for a small fee - pick you up from the airport or dock, give you great advise, be flexible about checking in/out and cooks great meals. The hotel itself is undergoing some renovations currently, but... More

Rosaline is very helpful and certainly make you feel at home , However the rooms are not a very good standard , and not clean enough , hot water and showers are also a poor standard. I would suggest this hotel needs a bit of TLC . When your paying for a room then you are entitled to a certain... More

The location is on a quiet back street smack in the centre of town and the price reflects the value, but the real gem of this place is the warm, friendly and slightly eccentric proprietress, who's really willing to walk the extra mile to make your stay as memorable and enjoyable as possible. Rosalina, a Cape Verdian recently returned from... More

Rosaline is a friendly, helpful person who created a nice and very comfortable place in the middle of Praia. It is clean and the rooms colourful. The breakfast is more than you can expect, coffee, fresh juice and handmade omlettes. We really felt at home :)

I'm giving the RosyMar an excellent review due to the owner Rosalee and her son Isaac - they where beyond helpful on our recent trip to Cabo Verde from California, US. We were overwhelmed when we first got off the plane and headed here because we heard the owner spoke English and we needed some guidance. She took us in... More
