I booked to stay at this b&b after reading the reviews on Trip advisor. The friendliness of the staff does not compare to the other places available in Cape Verde. Dont expect hot running water unless you request for it when you are booking a room, and even then do not expect the confirmation email to be truthful - I received confirmation that I would be picked up from the airport by the owner herself, only to be charged for a taxi fare, which according to the staff was 10euros. The next day when I booked the taxi myself the charge was approx. 3 euros. It was also confirmed that I would have a sea-view. When I was shown the room and told the staff it had been confirmed I had a sea-view room, the staff were confused and said there was no such thing and I was shown there was no such thing as a room with a sea view. The owner lives in America, and is less than helpful, very money oriented, having spoken to her. If you want to make calls the staff are not allowed to use the phone and you will have to give them money to go to a shop and buy a phonecard for you. Aweful aweful aweful - if you're thinking of booking here, you've been warned. This was the only problem I ever came across whilst staying in Cape Verde, and I visited various islands. The owner is dishonest and gobby; would not recommend this in the slightest. The choice for breakfast was stingy and basically left overs.
