We stayed at Hotel Sobrado for twelve nights. Currently, given the Covid situation, there were only very few guests, and it is no business as usual. Still, the whole staff was very professional as usual and made sure we had a pleasant stay. Most places are easily reachable by foot within maximum 15 minutes. To the pier (and the famous Brazilian Kiosk 😉) it is about 10 minutes to walk. Sobrado guests may use the Halos Hotel Beach (10-minute walk), where sun loungers and sun blinds are available. Generally, the Halos beach has a nice view and is also good for swimming/bathing. The breakfast was fine. Coffee/Cappuccino, juices, eggs (scrambled, fried, Omelet), Croissants, bred, yogurt and fruits were offered. Our room was of decent size and quite modern. The mattress was a bit soft for us but still ok. We had a nice bathroom (with a rain shower) and a small balcony. One day we had a small leak in the bathroom which was immediately fixed by the staff after we reported it. In the hotel there is also the restaurant Piri Piri which offers delicious Pizza at reasonable prices. We ate there a few times. They make their Pizza in a real Pizza oven and they also provide good draft beer. Still, we also went into town several times if we were more in the mood for seafood which is obviously delicious and should be tried on Sal. For us, as we were looking for a bed and breakfast style accommodation to sleep, Hotel Sobrado completely met these requirements. As written before, the staff was always very helpful, professional, and nice. We very much enjoyed our stay there and can clearly recommend the hotel 😊

My first impression of the hotel was that it is on the outskirts of a resort that is still a 'work in progress'; half-completed buildings and empty plots of land. It is about 10 minutes' walk to the beach (= possibly 5 minutes if you know the way!). It is 3-star accommodation with clean, reasonably-furnished rooms which include a mini-fridge and a safe. The majority of the staff are courteous and helpful, especially those on Reception. The breakfast is virtually the same every day - as we were staying for a week, I feel there should be more variety of hot food, and the restaurant manager should ensure supplies do not run out (butter and fruit were completely finished by 9.15am on Monday morning!). The bar area is pleasant, but the main disappointment is the pool ... as other reviewers have mentioned, it is miniscule. I recommend that it is transformed into a water feature or failing that, a jacuzzi. Then a new, larger, proper pool should be constructed - I'm sure there is a way to do this on the site. The gym is underwhelming and would be better if it included a sauna and a steam room instead of dated gym equipment. Having said all this, the hotel was very good value for money.

I can not give positive opinion about the hotel Sobrado, breakfast is very poor, waiting for omled every day 20 min because the have one Electric Pan. Rooms are ok very clean, unfortunatelly its very loud from the Street since 7 in the morning. One Iron for the hotel, AC doesnt work on the gym+ very old equipment.

Neat rooms, good and well furnished rooms. I always look forward to breakfast time as they have assorted items on display to choose from. The manager: Louis always ready and available to help out with his smiles, an amazing professional. Perfect hotel to stay for your holidays.

We had a great stay at the Sobrado. We wanted a hotel that was away from the crowds, music, nightclubs, etc. and this one fit the bill. It is located about 5min walk from the beach and the main drag of tourist shops and restaurants, so still very close. However we found it to be very quiet and peaceful. There is a Shell petrol station and shop only 200m away where you can pick up snacks and drinks. One of the best things about this hotel is that it is very modern, less than a year old, so everything is new and in good condition. The rooms are very clean, bright, and comfortable, and ours had a nice little balcony with some sun loungers. The free Wifi worked very well and the TV had a lot of good English language programming. We really liked the fact that there were plenty of power points as well as USB recharging ports above the bedside tables – very easy for recharging devices. The shower was good but the hot water is somewhat limited, with each room having its own small electric water heater. We also had a fridge which was very nice for keeping our drinks cold. There are no views at all to speak of, as it is set in a residential area. The reception staff were all very friendly and helpful and spoke good English. The breakfast buffet was very good, one of the best ones we experienced in Cape Verde, with a large range of hot and cold breakfast foods. We also tried some pizzas one night at the Piri-Piri restaurant (the hotel restaurant) which were very good. There is a small fitness room with some very basic equipment and also a very small pool area which really isn’t all that great. The outdoor pool area really needs some landscaping, shady areas, bigger pool, etc.- so much unrealized potential there! Overall we had a fantastic stay here and would definitely recommend it to others looking to get away from the noise and hustle of the beach area.
