Bad and slow service; Not the dish that i ordered; The food was overcooked; In other cases, the food was undercooked; We came in a big group(over 30 persons) and they only spared one waitress. The result was a disaster, i had to wait nearly 3 hours before my dish arrived (the wrong dish to make matters worse). I dont...

I was very happy to stay in this beautiful Hotel for a lot of good reasons: warm hospitality, good reception staff, sympathy of the owners, good food and good restaurant staff. It's very close to the center of the city and to Laginha beach also, you have handy kind of shops and music all over the day... actually sometimes until...

Hotel Mindel is located in the city of Mindelo. We stayed here for two nights, before leaving to Santo Antao. It is on walking distance (just a few minutes) from the ferry departure to for example Santo Antao. Although the hotel has a small swimming pool on the roof we prefered the public swimming pool near the harbour (a 5...

Truly the pits by any standard. Unclean, terrible food, treated like cattle. Do not stay here. Saturday night live music until 3am that shakes the Hotel. Truly awful ! I cannot express just how happy we were to leave this hotel

We have been twice in this hotel for one night, before and after going to Santo Antao. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and there was hot water. Breakfast was the best we had on our two week trip in Cabo Verde. The hotel is in the centre of Mindelo and only a short walk to the ferry.

Did a spot of island hopping in November between Sal, Sao Vincente and Santa Antao and stayed in this hotel for a night on the return journey, it was in a good location, clean, comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful had a great night in the square and a really good breakfast at the hotel the next morning.

The hotel location near the ferry pier to/from Santo Antao island was definitely a huge plus. After spending a week in quite basic accommodations on S.Antao, I decided to splurge for one night by booking the Mindel Hotel. I was not disappointed: Staff was friendly and helpful, rooms are very clean, the bathroom is piping out hot water like nowhere...

We stayed at Mindel Hotel for one full week. We choose the hotel mainly due to the reasonable price and because it featured a working lift, which was a convenient option for us. But we were not expecting too much, given the available reviews. However, Mindel Hotel was a pleasant surprise. The location, just in the center of Mindelo, is...

Very well located this is one of the landmark hotels in Sao Vicente. It's not fancy but clean and with good service. My main complaint is with the internet which is ridiculously priced and not even very good. For free internet just cross the street and there's wireless in all the main square (slow, but free). There's a rooftop tank...

We just stayed one night here between flights. The hotel is modern, well equipped and has a nice restaurant and helpful staff. There is an excellent breakfast buffet. The bedrooms are small and there are no balconies. There is a small swimming pool on the roof which was a bit windswept and sad looking. They provide a free transfer to...
