Super nice and friendly. Close to the beach. Ok food. Not so spicy. Nice rooms. Good cleaning. Very nice personell. And very nice entertaining personell. Good evening shows. Quite exensive prices in the shops in town.
Amazing stay! Had such a lovely time, breakfast was good, close to the beach and Santa Maria, good price for the room, clean and nicely decorated, beds a little hard but that’s my preference anyway. I can’t say if the all inclusive was good, seeing I only had breakfast, but support the local restaurants is my tip! I hope to come back after the corona crisis, I’m worried for you all. Stay safe, all the best wishes.
Great hotel! Hotel location is really good. The beach is nearby and good for swimming and sunbathing. The island's strong winds don't harm on this beach. The city center with its services is a very short walk away. We stayed there seven days. The rooms were clean and the cleaning worked well throughout the hotel. It was also nice to have some drinking water in the room. The pool area was large enough. There were plenty of sun loungers for all the hotel residents and the towel change service worked well. There were many kind of professionally-guided activities, etc. water gymnastics, dance and zumba at the pool area. In the evenings, the Animation -program group presented great program. The dance performances were great to watch and after that they taught the dances to the hotel guests as well. The hotel had its own beach club and guests were able to continue evening there. If you do not want an all inclusive service, there are many restaurants nearby. All inclusive included a variety of theme days including Italian, Mexican and Cape Verdean theme nights. If something could improve, breakfast could be a little more varied. There were lots of different products and they all tasted great, but in a week they were getting used to. A variety of bread products, cold cuts, fruits, juices, omelettes, cereals and desserts were available. The products were fresh and well presented. All guests found certainly a worthwhile enough to eat, but I guess I'm a little too selective and the same breakfast every day started a little get boring. The service was so good that we felt we were the very special guests at the hotel. We talked to other guests and they told us they felt the same way. So the service worked very well. …
Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of good things going on for this hotel. The proximity to a great beach, the cleanliness of public and private areas, the amazing beach bar and the friendliness of all the staff are honestly great. However, we are talking about of a 5-star and standards must be high. And sadly there’s a point where this hotel fails and is definitely not up to the standards of a 5-star hotel: THE FOOD. Although breakfast is decent with plenty of choices, 80% of the choices for lunch and dinner are mediocre. Most of the times I ate at the beach bar where grilled meats and fish were hard to go wrong. It’s wise to skip most desserts and stick to fruit. The thematic dinners are bad and Asian food is particularly a disaster. The pool area didn’t feel like a 5-star too, felt cramped and crowded, but I spent most of the time on the beach so it wasn’t as important for me. Other minor details: the animation team shouldn’t mock inexperienced guests when they play volleyball and the sun beds are super uncomfortable. Overall very relaxing holidays in a super laid-back island but the hotel felt like a 4-star place. I loved it, but if you want to be among the best, change/train your chefs, choose quality ingredients and deliver a quality experience.…
this is no more than four star. Internet in the pool area is impossible. the sunbed is not good. breakfast is little to brag about. An hour before, it starts to lack different food varieties. But the biggest problem at Cape Verde is that nobody cares about garbage. plastic and garbage everywhere. the cars just throw the garbage directly out of the windows. should not be tourists on this island until they get settled in the problem. many go after the tourists to bother them with all kinds of nonsense.
