I stay here whenever I come to Sao Tome. I generally come for work but I have also brought my family here and found it to be great for both scenarios. The rooms feel less like hotel rooms and more like small suites. The open-air aspect of the hotel is wonderful and makes for a quiet stay. The staff mostly speak English, which is a rarity in Sao Tome and nice after working all day with translators, and are super friendly and helpful. The restaurant is the best thing about the hotel. I know that if I am tired from a long day's work that at least I can get a good, quick meal at the restaurant. The bar is set up in a cozy way, making for a great place to read your book, use their wifi, or chat with folks hanging out there. The staff is very helpful when you want to plan tourist activities as well. They set me up with a Sao Tomean tour guide who spoke French and some English and he gave me a great tour of the south part of the island. My only complaints are small: often the wifi in the rooms is not working and the breakfast buffet is mediocre. The wifi is admittedly a challenge for everyone in Sao Tome and the breakfast could be greatly improved with the addition of an omelet bar. Some complain about the far out location of the hotel but I find the staff can get you a taxi that will escort you wherever you want to go for a reasonable cost so the distance doesn't bother me.
