We stayed three nights in the Porto Grande which unfortunately coincided with a large medical conference. The hotel seemed far more interested in satisfying the needs of the conference delegates and as a result we did feel we were very much second class guests. One particular night we were asked to move from where we were sitting in the bar because the group would all be coming in to listen to the live music and wanted our table! .... Having said that the hotel is in a great location with good facilities although if you are on the second floor bear in mind there are no lifts! The rooms are basic but adequate for a short stay, there is a good gym and the pool has plenty of sunbeds with free towels available from reception. The time we were there was very windy which was a shame as this restricted beach visits, but we did enjoy a day touring the island - there is not much to do in Mindelo itself, a walk round the fish market and the centre only takes a morning or so! Be warned that there are a lot of child beggars hanging around outside the hotel - we were told not to give them money but rather pens, paper or simply sweets.
