Just returned from Sal having spent 7 days at Halos casa
Great hotel all staff from management to cleaning staff work very hard to make your stay enjoyable .
We stayed on b/b the breakfast very good full English and lots of other choices all good quality, can’t comment on the lunch and evening meal menu we dined in Santa Maria each evening.
Rooms very nice and cleaned thoroughly daily by the lovely cleaning ladies who always had a smile and greeting , got to say the most comfortable bed slept in abroad (memory foam mattress) king size.
Very chilled around the pool during the day drinks at the bar good quality , you can even get the local brewed bitter on tap only problem the glasses are a bit small.
The entertainment team worked very hard in the bar on an evening , we enjoyed a couple of shows mainly done in Italian but nether the less very entertaining.
Mainly Italian guests at the hotel but all very polite and friendly.
We will be definitely returning to Halos casa got to give a special mention to the barman Kevin he was a great laugh .
Thankyou for a nice relaxing week,
Abrigada pa bo morebeza

The accommodation was very comfortable. Everything was as described.
The staff was always helpful and very friendly. They were always there for us when something was needed.
The beach and the sea are simply breathtaking and the town of Santa Maria is beatiful as well.
The cuisine was very tasty and always a lot of food to choose from. Such as fresh fishes, lots of fruits, vegetables, and sweets.
The italian manager of the restaurant and bars, Attilio, is a great person who always makes sure that noone is missing anything. I can say the same about the outstanding chef Carlos.
The animation team was amazing too. Jessica and Eliezer became very good friends of us during the stay.
We really enjoyed our vacation and can't wait to come back to this island and Halos Resort!!!

Nice hotel, good value. Good pool, big rooms, clean facilities, well located just 7 minutes walk to the centre or 3 minutes to the beach. No hills for those who prefer to walk on the flat. Good area on the beach with plenty of shade and wifi, the beach bar was a well kept secret however. Bed and breakfast or all inclusive available, would advise all inclusive, although I'm not normally an all inc fan, the quality of the food available makes it a no brainer, even if you eat out occasionaly for a change. Good entertainment in the complex 3 times per week. Good mix of nationalities in the hotel, personally I prefer this to a predominately British clientele. Better still the staff, the cleaners, waiters, bar staff, reception staff are all brilliant, helpful, calm and relaxed. Big heads up to the guy in the outside bar who always had my drink waiting before I got to the bar, and the main main in entertainments (the local guy) who was a cocktail of energy, enthusiasm and friendship. If I had to find a minor fault the local beer and coffee weren't to my taste, although you could but replacements at 2 euros or cheaper in the hotel or in town. Would advise you to give it a go rather than pay double in the Riu hotels. Dubliner bar close by worth a go, not a typical Irish bar, more relaxed with good food and drink (it was full of Riu residents looking for a change).

The hotel is super close to town, beach across the street, friendly and attentive staff.
Had all inclusive , food was nice however if you go 9am for breakfast most things have run out. On lunch and dinner dessert was almost gone every single day.
Breakfast didn't change for the entire stay so it does get a bit boring after a few days.
Is not a self serving service so the queues sometimes are quite long. Having to queue for get a bottle of water or coffee.
Gets a bit warm in the dinning/breakfast area too.
Room wise was clean, AC always working, water inthe afternoons sometimes wasn't working for maintenance for bare that in mind. The kitchen area was a bit lacking, only 2 glasses available, no cutlery, no plates. Absolutely nothing as we were AI wasn't a bit of a problem depends on your board.
Pool area was definitely my favourite, clean, beautiful.
I believe is an Italian orientated resort so most things are for Italians, so music and food might not be for everyone's taste.
Unfortunately coffe isn't included in the AI and only a few drinks. During the day the only snacks available are at the bar or at the beach and is always pizza.
Wi fi worked everywhere in the hotel and beach no hairdryer or pressing board, we had to pay to have shirts ironed.
Overall was nice but a few things did need to improve.
Towels are changed every 3 days.

Halos Casa is not a 4 star resort. The pool and beach are definitely 4 star but the rest of the facilities merit only 2 stars ( quality of the food, poor decor and shabby lobby area)…..so a 3 star average. Breakfast is from 7.30 am until 10 am but arrive after 9 and there is very little left. On different days we found no bread, no tomato, no yoghurt or no juice. Ask and the response is…. finished!!!! If breakfast is until 10, then all food should be available until this time. We stayed bed and breakfast as we like to eat out in the evening. Our booking said the apartment came with a full kitchen but the kitchen was empty of all utensils. We asked for a kettle, cutlery, plates and saucers and were told, NO. We pointed out the terms of the booking but to no avail. Only when we went to our booking company who in turn contacted Halos Casa did we get them and this was on day 4 of our break….so unnecessary. If you only want to do AI then don’t offer B. and B. and a full kitchen.

Nice location, but next time I would choose another hotel. Weak for 4 stars, the shower is moldy and the door cannot be opened. Meals are repeated after 3 days. The pool is small for such a number of guests, but there are enough sunbeds on the beach, the bar is also great, you can taste the local grogue. The work of the bartenders and animators is excellent, and now three things that disappointed me the first, before leaving on the last day, I returned to the room and my toothbrush was really from the soap even in the part where the bristles are, which means that the maid happily uses your personal things for cleaning, this is absolutely unacceptable and no one should allow this! Another thing is poorly described dishes, it would be better to translate them all into English or several languages, but properly! As an example, I will give "chicken schnitzels" while eating, I found out that among the schnitzels there are pieces with wrapped and fried ham. (someone could confuse it with undercooked chicken) and why is there another food under this name at all. Then also a weak current of water, but maybe that is the problem of the whole island? I would really like the hotel to work on these things in the future, because Cabo Verde is great. :) Recommended to visit: Santa Maria, water sports, Murdeira, Buracona, Buggy trip, Sharkbay, Zipline, Solinas lake, shell cemetery

Lovely clean and spacious apartments, comfy beds, well-located (only 10 mins walk into town), lovely pool with plenty of sun loungers, has its own part of the beach with sun loungers (just across the road from the hotel). Friendly staff,enthusiastic entertainment team with daily activities such as Pilates, aqua fit (though they mainly speak in French). We went breakfast only so can’t comment on the other meals but the breakfast had a good selection each day including omelettes/eggs made to order.

Only negatives were we booked an airport pick up booked but it never arrived. This didn’t matter as we just got a taxi.
Apartments are meant be self-contained but only 3 glasses were supplied. Cooking utensils meant to be available on request but after asking for a kettle or even just a pan 3 or 4 times we gave up!

Nicest staff ever! From management to bar/restaurant, animation en housekeeping; they all do their best to give you a wonderful stay.
Rooms and location are very clean. If you want a small scale, but cozy resort, this is the place to be.
Breakfast is continental, but lunch and dinner is a mix of local food,wich include fresh fish every day.
And be sure to book a massage at the spa, Danny gives the best massages and it's very well priced!

Apartment was great and despite the sand we trailed in was kept very clean. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. In particular Scooby was lovely and gave us a great tour of the island - hugely informative but really relaxing to be with - well worth doing. He spent a lot of time turtle spotting for us despite it being too early in the season and it paid off much to my daughters delight. Entertainment staff were also fantastic - afraid don't remember all the names but Patricia and Eliezer deserve a special mention. Beach is pretty close to the resort and has great sand and plenty of people are swimming or doing water sports. The reserved section has lots of sun loungers and the various games played daily such as beach volleyball are very inclusive. Found Ocean and Americas restaurant so good visited them multiple times.

Thank you to all the staff
