All reasons to stay at Roça Sundy: - It’s a functioning Roça (farm) including a local community in the immediate surroundings; it includes a small chocolate factory. - You can live side by side with the lovely locals (who are mainly working at the hotel or at agriculture of the Roça). Do not be shy - we went to an open air cinema session at the backyard with the locals and my son played soccer with the kids. It’s a real immersion experience (as it should be!). - Beautifully refurbished building in a colonial style (they recovered all the original elements). - Room amenities: Nuxe, great quality - Bed & lining: super comfy - Half board: good à la carte breakfast and dinner at 3 course menu (choose main course from 2 options) - Bar: very good cocktails! - Free transfer from / to the airport - Free transfer to Bombom beach (25 minutes ride) - guests can use all Bombom facilities (swimming pool, great massages and beaches) - must go! Bombom it’s paradise on earth! - Note that Sundy has no swimming pool (we were told it will have a pool in 2020). And you have to pay an extra for the transfer to the closest beach, Sundy Beach (instead of a 20 minutes walking trail). Better to go to Bombom beaches for free :-). Fully recommend Roça Sundy! What a heartfelt experience! Note: if in doubt between Roça Belo Monte and Roça Sundy, stay at Sundy. Much better.

I spent two nights in this hotel, a great plantation house surrounded by nature and forest. Many local people are still living around the hotel, so it is like a small village, there is even a kindergarden for the people who work at the nearby resorts! The rooms are modern, they have a comfortable bed, nice furniture and a flatscreen TV with many international channels. The hotel offers a free transfer to S. Antonio and Bom Bom Resort twice a day (at 8:00 and 11:30, return at 5:30pm). At Bom Bom you can book a full- or halfday tour by car or boat (which are really great, I tried them all!). You can walk to Hotel Sundy Praia if it does/did not rain recently (otherwise it is too slippery), it is a nice but steep 20 minutes walk in the forest. All these hotels have the same South African owner. Half board (without drinks) is included in the stay. Breakfast is great (small buffet). But concerning dinner I have to be honest, it was not very good: there is too little choice and the portions are very small, you get served a big plate with almost nothing on it! As there is no other restaurant or supermarket nearby, you can not buy anything else to eat, I was always hungry after dinner! I hope you will consider improving the dinner quality and quantity!

We loved the location,in the middle of the rainforest,the renovated building with details from the colonial era that were kept,the food and the amazingly nice staff. It's really a PLUS that guests are allowed to use Bom Bom Resort's facilities during the Day (beach,restaurant,swimming pool,...). Also great are the daily free shuttles: to the airport, to Bom Bom Resort and to the City. Finally, Just a reference to how helpful the staff was Also in recommending activities to do, where to eat, etc.

We stayed for 2 nights overhere. It’s a fun ride from the airport to here, Roca sundy is an old plantation house, really nicely restored, it still is surrounded by the local village (about 400 people) which gives a special atmosphere. We had a room with balcony, great view, food (lunch/dinners) was excellent, breakfast was ok, our second breakfast was even full of mini ants so we had to skip most of this one, the staff member we had didn’t understand the point we wanted to make on it, some of the staff didn’t speak very good english (we know in the mean time that management is making efforts to improve this). anyway we loved our stay over here (even if there is no pool), it offers a special ambience, you can do some nice walks around and we had a great tour of the island with fillipa (she really made the difference for us !!) So , a must go place for us when in principe !
