I stayed in the Omali after several stays at the Pestana, the competitor in the same price range. Omali certainly offers a greater level of comfort in the rooms. They are well maintained, supplied and very large. The price I had was a corporate one, which makes a lot of sense. At regular prices, this hotel may still be somewhat overpriced. It has great food, especially dinners. Breakfast is somewhat thin (here Pestana is clearly in the lead), although decent. For most items you have to pay extra. Internet at the time of my stay was reachable only at the reception and still very slow (the latter is common for the entire island). Staff are helpful, nice and speak English. There are other things you can do, such as diving provided by the same hotel complex (and highly recommended). Finally, the hotel is not so central, but everything in Sao Tome is within a 5 minute ride. The airport is within walking distance, literally. Basically, it's a great choice if you're prepared to pay a little extra.
