The Hotel is exceptional for room standard, entertainment, and Food, although the breakfast buffet wasn't up to the standard of other hotels I have stayed in. The Beach club lunches were superb, and the dinners, both in the Palmiers restaurant and the Tortue were excellent. My only criticism, we booked the Palmier suite, thinking it was the best accommodation but found it's proximity to one of the pools, which we had been told was adults only, in fact wasn't, and within two days of arrival was overwhelmed by a very large and noisy family. My recommendation, if you prefer less shrieks and screams, book accommodation in the Executive block the other end of the resort.
The hotel is beautiful with every facility you could ask for. We had breakfast included which was delicious, the room was very clean, and staff were so nice. The location is ideal-just a few minutes to the Main Street and right on the beach front. The hotel has pools and also has their own beach beds which was great to have. We had an incredible stay and only wished we had longer!
Went island hopping in Cape Verde and this was the best hotel we stayed in. 3 pools, beach club and very convenient for Santa Maria town. Breakfast with full range of hot/cold options to suit all tastes. Outside barbeque for fresh fish in the evening. Attended the Valentine's Day evening and they go it spot on. Suberb range of veg/fish/meat options and then live Cape Verdean band with professional dancers who got all the guests up for an african style shindig. Would have stayed longer here had I known what it was going to be like.
We visited for my wife’s Grandad’s 90th birthday so there were nineteen in our party! We had a great time and that is important to note! So again, an in-depth review of good and bad, and just like any bag of nuts it depends on the mix, you get and how much of each nuts you like and don’t, to determine if it was a good or bad bag is nuts! Our preference for hotels are smaller and cosy with a nicer quite ambience, so this hotel ticks all the boxes! It is a lovely quite cosy hotel with good rooms! The rooms are spacious and the air-con work well! The bed was comfy and the showers and baths were good! The only complaint was the shower water and bath water really has a very bad smell so not sure how clean we really came out of them! The facilities in the hotel are fantastic two full size snooker tables, tennis courts x2, Crazy golf, gym plus more it was quite something! I was impressed! The food and drink, this is why I have only given the hotel three stars because the food was not good, the only meal I really enjoyed was breakfast and that’s because I had cereal! The lunches are ok but really nothing to write home about, also quite expensive for what it is, however saying that other members of the group enjoyed the food, which I think is fair however if you are not a fan of fish, the choice is limited! The service and staff are quite slow so be prepared to wait three or four weeks for a drink, however they are friendly! There were one or two members of staff that were grumpy Which let down the hotel in general as the rest of the staff were good! My wife’s favourite was the beach bar on the beach which was comfy and welcoming, however still quite expensive! They do need more cakes! My wife’s opinion! The drinks at night did seem to be quite expensive four drinks for some reason came to 34 euros which if in London would be fine but a little expensive for here, especially as in town the drinks are far Cheaper for the same brands! Overall, great hotel sort the food out and it will be great! …
Very good hotel, in an excellent location only a 5 minute walk from the main drag with all its restaurants. The hotel has a good decked main pool area, and two other separate private pool areas. Access to the beach is easy and the hotel even has a beach club if you want to lie directly on the sand. The sea was warm and very batheable - although strong currents make me question if it so child-friendly. The room was pleasant enough, clean and tidy, with a large balcony overlooking the garden. A ceiling fan helps to cool it down. Bathroom ok. The one comment I have for the hotel is that they should change the door to the toilet. Currently it is a louvre door, for ventilation I assume, but it made toilet visits very unprivate and loud! Simply changing to an insulated door would make a great improvement. Overall, I would recommend this hotel. We had a very relaxing and well-needed break here. …
