Well structured hotel around the pool. Easy to move around and reach the room quickly. All the staff is very professional and helpful. Fast and efficient service. Rooms are big and spacious. Breakfast buffet with high quality products. Perfect location to mix business and comfort/relax. Highly recommended

As a luxury travel blogger for World-adventurer.com, I've stayed in many hotels and resorts across Africa. Pestana Tropico was a very pleasant surprise. Here's what I loved about the stay: Location: Though not in the heart of the old city, it is easily reached by taxi or even on foot. The hotel instead is located on a quiet coast area... More

A great hotel in Praia. My third visit and always a consistently good. The staff are polite and helpful. Very clean hotel and rooms. A lovely breakfast selection included.

Was pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly from arrival to departure. SO many things that I like about this hotel. I like that on 3 sides of the hotel you are surrounded by water view.

Rooms are misdescribed, only 11 rooms (as far as I could tell) have a balcony with a pool view (those also have a bit of a sea view) in many of the other 18 you cannot see the pool due to the thoughtful planting of Oleanders to hide the pool and they have verandas as they are on the ground...

Dear Mr.TysonSamarkand, First of all, thank you for such detailed comments regarding our unit. I would like to make a few comments regarding them, if I may. The ground floor rooms are very close to the pool (aprox. 10 meters). That's why many Clients asked us to place a few plants in front, to give them a bit more privacy.... More

This place has amazing views of the ocean. The windows open WIDE and I never used the A/C, just opened the windows. The staff is really nice, for the most part. I did have a slow and odd bartender who felt a need to serve EVERYONE else before me but, that's his problem. I thoroughly enjoyed this facility.

During our three Island holidays we chose a hotel as our son wanted to have a pool for a couple of days. The hotel is a business and holiday hotel at the same time. As it was not very booked, there haven't ever been tons of people at the pool. Food was ok, next door is a highly recommended Fish... More

Very friendly and accomodating staff. Very well located, even if it´s a little bit off the Plateau or the other main neighborhoods. Very quiet and relaxing place to stay in the city. It doesnt have Access to any nice beach, but the place itself is very nice. Brekfast is ok, and it has an ok bar too.
