Don't stay in Calhau on Sau Vicente. There is nothing there, no facilities. dreadful windswept beach. To get any shopping means hiring a car or an aluguer ride into Mindelo.
Mindelo is great. Stay in Mindelo! Mindel Hotel looks good (check other reviews?) Nearest nice beach is Baia da Gatas 11 kilometers away. Evening strolls impossible as there is no street lighting at all.

Andyh59, Owner at Blu Marine, responded to this review, June 22, 2011
I am sorry that you did not appreciate the quiet atmosphere of Calhau. Some people do prefer the city life. It is a shame that you did not make the short walk to the fantastic beach at Praia Grande or the walk through the village to some great snorkelling spots. Calhau also offers some of the best dining experiences on the island.
The fact that you liked the Blu Marine apartments is appreciated, and the high rating you gave us for service and cleanliness is most welcome.
Although you found the trip to be not great value for money, I am sure you found the Blu Marine apartment excellent value.
We hope to see you in the future.

Beautiful accomodation in the ideal location for a quiet break, the apartment was spacious and well presented, the staff were great, what more can anyone ask.
This is a quiet spot but there were lots of island trips available, so no time to get bored.
Can't wait to go back again.
