A group of us are just coming towards the end of our stay here (leave on Monday - damn, back to reality). We've had a really good time in this very relaxed hotel. One of the things you need to get your head around is that this is not a "European set-up" and that does mean that the service is...

Disorganised and overpriced hotel. Transfer from airport was not delivered despite email reminder and friends in direct contact with reception. Several reception staff were not helpful, partly unfriendly - and with limited proficiency in foreign languages (e.g. English). Coffemaker for breakfast did not work on several occasions. Dinner offers were uninspiring; it is better to go for other restaurants. The...

Dear Chris, Thank you veru much for your comments. I would like to explain what happened with the transfer. We do offer, free of charge, the shuttle service. But it's not permanent. This means that if your flight turns too be late, we cannot wait for you indefinitely at the airport, except if we've been warned on due time. Please...

4 families of 12 members stayed at this place for 4 days, and spent 2017 New Year Eve. Very spacious rooms, with caring staff. Ideally located, not far from city center. You are disappointed, if you expect a sandy beach here !!!

The swimming pool is great, and the bar as well, but the rooms are very humid and therefore not so comfortable. Be sure to have enough water with you before going to the bedroom, you will need it for everything and the hotel only gives you 1,5 l.

A hotel with style and probably the best Caipirinha served on the Island or even in the world. A lot of space and a large bed in the suite. Good burgers and club sandwiches served at the bar. Falling asleep with the sound of the breaking waves was painless... :)

We had a 14 hour layover in Praia, between flights. The staff at the Pestana Tropico hotel were very hospitable and accommodating, as we needed a room just for the day, not for the night. They kindly gave us a special rate. Lunch buffet was copious and delicious. We might have wanted to try the Dinner Grill buffet, but lunch...

Very nice staff and friendly atmosphere. Best location in Santiago either to visit the capital Praia or to extend your visits to the best places in the island. Family oriented amenities help make your stay worthwhile.

Nice and very familiar ambient, very good accommodation and a excellent service in all areas. Pleasant stay for short or long periods and very familiar ambient. I recommend it for business or family vacations with a nice swimming pool and very open wide facility, facing the beach.

The pictures show amazing ocean views. Reality tells a different story: There is a fence (prison like) in the perimeter of the hotel and beyond that a rocky shore. However, the staff is pleasant and the restaurant is good. The pool is also nice. If you want a beach this is not your place!

Dear AVM2016, Thank you for your very positive evaluation. Concerning your remarks, please allow me to explain. The fence is there for Guests safety, despite that, I agree that it doen't give a very good feeling. But it's vital. We do have a nice beach just 180 meters away ("Prainha"), with white and thin sand. And we also have, of...
