Rooms: Spacious and clean with really good size bathrooms. Only negative is about the beds: HARD! And how great is single blanket for two adults for real??? Fun and giggles on paper but whilst trying to sleep not so great after all... Food/Restaurants: Often REALLY crowded and noisy, with looooong queues to buffet food and pasta kitchen! The dishes are a somewhat pale and tasteless, more spices wouldn't hurt!

Two/three a la carte restauranrs, two just over the main restaurant and Beach Club just by the sand, that also offered lunch and drinks during the day. Every nigjt some evening programis by Animation team, two three times a week very good effort in the theme Africa, Brazilian etc.

We spent a week (around christmas) there and it was great. Almost worth a 5. But some small issues. We booked a partial sea-view room on top floor and we got one of the best rooms: the hotel consists of three wings and room 2094 was at the end of middle wing facing directly the ocean. It was big and modern and beautiful. There was just one thing: it was right at and above the main restaurant and the evening entertainment show. Which was loud... But everything worked fine and food in all restaurants was good/very good. (in the main buffet restaurant later evenings they ran out of glasses etc temporarily) Really a lot to choose from. Themed nights were beautifully set. And they put a lot of effort in everything. The facility was well kept and there were allways staff cleaning places, and covid-measures were strict: entering the site (from beach or main entrance), passing by guards, they required mandatory wearing of masks, temp/fever measurement and use of hand sanitizer. Applied to everybody every time. Well organized and efficient, made us feel safe. The beach was perfect. Beautiful, clean, allways free sun loungers available. Big waves but not too big.

The hotel is friendly and close to the beach and the city of Santa Maria. The staff, in general, is friendly and helpful. Very spacious Sea-View room. The swimming pool is large. It has a general restaurant and 3 themed restaurants for which it is necessary to make an appointment and there is no guarantee that all guests will have access as places are limited. I only tried Tradiçon and Morna Beach Club. The menu is pre-set. At Morna Beach Club is a menu based on the barbecue. Tradiçon the food was terrible. Drinks are fickle, whether we have a Coke with some gas or a Coke with no gas. First that this problem is solved is long. I even had dinner completely without having a fizzy drink. Even the cocktails vary a lot – Salinas (a kind of San Francisco but with Sprite added) was in some bars only orange juice and Sprite, in others, it was orange and pineapple juice without Sprite… it varies depending on the employee. In the main restaurant, the demand for tables and dishes is constant. On the other hand, there is little insistence on the part of officials with tourists who wear masks over the mouth without covering their nose. Something that in my opinion should be forced by the hotel. It's the law and rules, especially in the restaurant. The reception when you have a problem, like a customer throwing towels in the air to sit wherever he wants, only works when we get upset and demand the complaints book. If not the answer is let's talk to management or public relations. It's my second time at the hotel and it still has the old problem that hot water takes a long time to get out in the shower at certain times of the day, which wastes water for minutes. This is a country and on an island where there is a lack of water is regrettable. The information about timetables and hotel services is via QRcode, however, this QR did not exist in my room and even after they told me they were going to put it on until my departure, it never arrived. The lab that does the COVID testing is very disorganized and does not give a receipt even though you ask for it. The methodology they do is not what is written by the test manufacturer. This service is not owned by the hotel. The hotel is nice but lacks some staff.

I stay in Salinas for a week with my wife and 2 kids 9 and 6years. After the bad reviews i read here was almost discouraged about the hotel but my experience in this hotel was good and will not hesitate to visit there again. The staffs are friendly even tho they speak little English which I understand it's a Portuguese speaking country not English. The buffet is always okay will not give it 10 but very okay better thanks most hotels I have stay in Spain Greece and turkey. Rooms are clean and the beach is closed

We have been here for almost two weeks now, and I must say that the negative words I had read before we came must have come from people who will find fault with everything. A busy bee type of stuff are making your holiday enjoyable in every respect. Just close your eyes to tiny imperfections that will in no way ruin your blisful rest as the hotel is safe and clean , plus covid safety measures are well observed, the food diversified, fresh and tasty and the ocean picture perfect, albeit, mind you, pretty powerful. All rooms are spacious and well air-conditioned and the second floor garden view rooms have also enough of a side ocean view. To people who complain about some 'smells" I will say, that many other places would benefit from this hotel's way of recycling water, which is a precious commodity here but , we should be aware, it may become such anywhere in the world. And I would say the beach is quite clean, yet still some people tend to thoughtlessly drop toxic cigarette butts around. So bring your sun cream and soak in the no stress life to gain another perspective on life.

I was in Salinas Sea 4 years ago and this is not the same hotel. I returned because once i was very well treated and we have the best beach in Cabo Verde. Now the service, food and quality are very poor and with lots of lacks. You pay for All Inclusive service but you dont have a simple sparkling water or genuine coke for free. The staff try to do the best but they are so few they cant handle all the work. ( João de Deus is only one the best employee). Another thing that disapointed me was the plastics straws. Today all hotels have straws in papers or other alternative to plastics. I saw lots of straws in the beach and sand. Cabo Verde is one of most important places for turtles in the Atlantic...plastic straws kill lots of turtles every year. Hope the hotel became good again!

Food: For a hotel that offers mostly all-inclusive packages, the quality of the eating experience should be one of the most important factors to consider in regard to overall customer satisfaction. Not in this case, however: Salinas Sea's catering was subpar, having a very limited selection, poor variation (mostly fish and seafood based dishes), and poor quality. The food in the main (all-inclusive) restaurant ranged from unedible to passable for the main courses, only the desserts being generally good. On top of that, the management took advantage of the COVID-19 restrictions to actively discourage consumption by limiting the amount of food being put on the plates and forcing the guests to request extras to personnel that barely understood even the most basic english words. The alternatives were not any better: the snack bar was open for a limited time and the wait times were upwards to an hour for any cooked food. The advertised night bar was actually closed during the night and all one could get was a sandwich from the reception consisting of 85% stale bread. Not recommended for anything more than a basic breakfast. Upkeep: The property was generally clean and well kept but in need of a renovation, the furniture and bathroom fixtures being way past their time. We had an incident where the water was cut completely for an hour and it was yellowish and smelly for a long time afterwards. Hotel staff: Generally polite and helpful, but with a very limited grasp of the english language. Very simple, repeated sentences and lots of patience are usually a must. Amenities: Only basic hotel soap bars and shampoo bottles. The minibar included just a couple of water bottles. Coffee, tea and sugar were not replenished during our one week stay. Room service: Not available. Maybe :) There was no menu in the room and the front desk staff told us to ask for it at the restaurant. The restaurant staff then encouraged us to use the in room menu and upon my insistence that there was no such thing gave us a table top (all-inclusive) menu holder from the snack bar to use instead :) Obviously, when actually trying to order something it turned out that the free snack bar menu was not the room service menu and that we'll have to pay for ordering. For what and how much still remains a mystery... On site activities: We've tried the pool tables in the "games room" - a good way to spend some time if you don't mind hauling the cues and balls from the reception to a small basement on the other side of the property and back. Beach access: Good beach facilities - the nearby sandy beach included free sunbeds, showers and wifi in the bar area. Gym / Fitness room: There's a small, cramped room in the basement with some old, poorly maintained and very dirty equipment. Not recommended -  you'll be better off using the publicly available machines just outside the hotel. CONCLUSION Based on what I've seen and experienced at the Salinas Sea, I would say that the property lies somewhere around the 3+ star rating, certainly nowhere near the advertised 5 stars. Its good beach access and facilities are unfortunately overshadowed by a below average all-inclusive package, poor service and limited amenities. On a positive note: If you're a cat lover, expect to be in good company at the dinner table, on your balcony, on the sofa in your room and even on your sunbed! Be prepared to share :)
