On hearing the pool was closed we tried going elsewhere but first choice were having none of it. This hotel had come recommended by friends who went last summer. I am positive we didn't get the same experience they did, it was disappointing. The hotel is stunning from a distance but tired up close. We thought we were being realistic... More

Was very apprehensive after reading some negative reviews about going here. Need not have worried. Visited end of June for two weeks. Positives: Large attractive hotel. Lovely grounds to walk around. Beautiful beaches. Hardworking staff who always have a smile. No negatives, pools are now being refurbished but I would suggest buying some water shoes to wear in the pool... More

Well me and my partner have just gotten back from a two week stay in this hotel and it was the best holiday we've ever had! So let's get this straight, 5* is given to a hotel because of the resources it provides, not because it has a certain 'feel' so yes, it DOES deserve it's 5* rating! Check in... More

Hotel was lovely, very spacious with more than enough staff who were always happy and helpful. The choice of food was amazing with something different to choose from every day. Our room was one of the furthest from the main building, although many people disliked the walk we found it to be very peaceful, especially in the late afternoon to... More

My husband and I stayed for one week at the beginning of June and had a fantastic time.The flight to Cape Verde is 5.5 hours with no entertainment, so take a book or tablet to watch a movie. Arrived to glorious weather, you can see the hotel from the airport rising like a sandcastle in the distance. Transfer only takes... More
