Hotel Oasis Porto Grande
Ranked #2 of 13 Hotels in Mindelo
Reviewed June 17, 2007

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.

Reviewed September 2, 2006

I stayed in the hotel for 3 nights.It looked as if this was the best hotel in Mindelo. It has a nice pool area and the breakfast was good. I really enjoyed Mindelo. It's off the tourist track which is a big plus. It's renowned for its music and there were groups playing all over the place.
A word of warning about the music. Don't go to Mindelo if you want to go to sleep early! The live music in the Hotel starts at about 11.30 pm and goes on until 2.00am and the diso club goes on until 6.00am. If you want a quiet room then ask for a room in the back overlooking the pool.
If you visit Mindelo you must take a ferriy over to Santo Antao where the scenery is absolutely breathtaking
