Staff is kind and available, who speak good English and fluid Portugese. Victor spent 45 minutes with me, outlining places to go in the City and wider Island. The pool is clean, amply sized, and unique (see pics). Breakfast is healthy, balanced, and well cooked and presented. Rooms are spacious, well-appointed, with good beds. Town is a short walk through a safe, if a little trashy, neighborhood. An excellent supermarket, cafe and bar is within 5 blocks.
