The standard at Hotel Central is pretty basic but the rooms are of a decent size and everything is very clean and tidy. The hotel staff is kind and service minded and will give you tips on where to eat, what beaches are the best etc. They can also help you book excursions with local guides if you like. We booked 2 excursions at the hotel (island jeep tour and katamaran sailing) which we were very happy with. Cheaper than if we would have booked via our travel agent and better in the sense that it benefits the local economy. Breakfast is served at Café del Mar, just a short walk away, with views of the sea front. At Hotel Central you live in the heart of Santa Maria and get a much more genuine experience of Cape Verde than if you stay in one of the larger complexes outside the city. If I come back to Sal, it is very likely that I would choose Hotel Central again, because of the location and because of the wonderful welcome we received from the hotel manager and staff.

We travelled with 3 persons, had a nice suite. Was a quite spacious suite, clean. Friendly staff, nice welcome by the manager with local drink. Location is very central, close to everything, inbetween the locals, cosy atmosphere. 24h reception and security. Good basic breakfast in cafe close by. Minus points: not too good matrasses, they seemed quite old/used. Roof terrace seemed not to be finished yet. Some minor problems of missing blankets and balcony chair were however solved the same day by the staff. We would recommend this of you want to be in the center of santa maria in a nice and friendly hotel (and not in a massive resort).

The people who work there, were very kind, they did everything which is possible for the gasts.The bed was good, the rooms also. The shower was not to big, but it was ok. Cleaning was also good. The only thing was it was a bit nosy, we were at the front site, the locals where a bit nosy and also the dogs which barked often. Tip: for tips for all the staff, add a box on the desk/counter!
