Location excellent a 2 minute walk to plenty of restaurants. Great beach. All areas kept beautifully. Plenty of activities to join in if you want to. Very quiet. Felt incredibly spacious - never fighting for sunbeds. We would go back!

Room Tip: The rooms in the 600's had a private pool area - a real treat. We got upgraded to this - but hea...

We are from belgium, and spend this last week, including new year's day at morabeza hotel. We hired a duplex, with private solarium terrace, a must! The room was marvellous, the food is very good, don't forget to ask whatever you want extra for breakfast, they can do it! Friendly staff, everyone will do what is possible to please you. We took only half-board, it's enough! However beverages are expensive, go to the beach bar or in town, you'll save money. The best supermarket is cuzo, at 500m from entry (go right, first left, pass two streets, when you see farmacia, the green building next), you'll find everything you need food, water, beers, cigars, etc. at best price.
In town, caboverdians are quite sympatic, the senegalese less ! First question they ask : Hi, swedish? English? I speak french so : Français? Belge? MY REPLY : Camerounais . It's delightful!
Morabeza Hotel is for you if you are indepedentant, if you want something , you ask : they do. Or they have an answer. The Guest service never leave you alone. The servers are friendly if they have a tip, otherwise they ignore you : that's a pity

Room Tip: Expensive but worth : a duplex or minimum a room with seaview, sure sunny all day.

Nicely situated, the hotel looks good. Good food although you can also eat very good at the small restaurants at the end of the beach.
Service isn't always that efficient. Without it's location the hotel would be completely overpriced.
As a hotel guest one day someone charges you for the beach beds, next day they don't...

our next travel is to Sal ,to this spendid hotel,called Morabeza.

we made a reservation through the Ghendt Morabeza travel office and everything is arranged to have a marvelous vacation end of the winter.
direct flight from Brussels,pick up at the airport ,and an executive room with sea view.
Only BB,as we have lunch in the surroundings or at the beach restaurant.In the evening we quite often go to the upper bar restaurant after a spendid happy hour.the caiparinas are really great.
the little fishertown Santa Maria is quite busy and have good evening possibilitties for dining local food ,especially fresh fish.

Just back from our 6th visit to the wonderful Morabeza. Nothing else gets near this fabulous hotel, with its delightful friendly staff, beautiful setting, superb food, and ambience. The Bar, managed by Maria, is among the best we have visited anywhere in the world and has a wonderful atmosphere. Already we are looking forward to going back to the Morabeza in February. Our only complaint is that the hotel allows smoking by guests in bars, restaurants and public areas, but so do the other hotels in Cape Verde and so it is a universal problem. Hopefully Cape Verde will fall into line with most of Europe on smoking policy! Overall, we LOVE the Morabeza!

Lovely beach side hotel in Santa Maria, Sal, Cape Verde. Very friendly staff, large twin room with separate large shower/wc room. Good variety of food in the restaurants as well as many nearby restaurants within walking distance. Beach is literally next to the hotel. Saw many kite surfers. Happy hour was great fun, especially the Caiperinhas!! Also many well known spirits available, but not at happy hour prices, although not expensive by UK standards.Three pools to swim in, plenty of sunloungers. November was warm with day time temps 28-30 C, evening time down to 20C, no rain, blue sky etc. I am told there are only 12 rainy days per year. Very dry climate.

As many have said before this is a first-class hotel in an ideal position close to the town of Santa Maria which is scruffy and badly developed but has some good restaurants. The hotel is well run with good big bedrooms and an excellent restaurant. The upstairs bar which also serves good meals has a popular 'Happy Hour' from 6.30pm every day when a number of drinks are reduced in price. The beach is lovely to walk along but you need to be fit and a good swimmer to go in the sea much of the time. The only 'downer' is the often strong wind which they enjoy/suffer from October to April - great if you are a surfer, not so great if you are not. It is the same on the other holiday island of Boa Vista.
