My wife and I came here (first time to Cape Verde) for eight days to celebrate our 15th anniversary. We made an excellent choice. Excellent location for relaxation, especially since that is all we wanted to do. I spoke to the staff and they arranged a private dinner on the beach for us the evening of our anniversary with candles, a special bouquet of flowers for her, and a special menu. The attention of detail from the staff was amazing.
And to make it even more special, my wife cannot eat gluten, which we had not told them in advance. When we were arranging which restaurant to eat in the first night my wife mentioned it to the coordinator that was scheduling these. A few hours later we were walking through the main entrance area and were greeted by the head of all the catering who personally guided my wife through the various options she had and from that point on they were always watching out for her. They even had gluten-free pasta for her! She was very impressed.
We used the spa facilities three times, always with exceptional service. If you are going to relax and have a true vacation this is the place to be. We are planning to return (this time with our daughter, which we had conveniently left with her grandparents for this trip).

The hotel overall was very good ,the only major criticism was poor language skills of some of the staff. We had to ask directions from hotel reps from other companies to find out where hotel facilities were. They are more geared up to German guests. However, enjoyed Boa Vista and this hotel and would go again. We had a suite with sea views with 2 balconies and really nice. worth the extra for the space and view. Varied selection of food with lots of fruit and fresh veg. Not enough sun loungers round the pool....always taken by very early rising guests.. and not enough sun beds on the beach. Beware of the wind!!! you don't notice just how hot it is because of the cooling wind, so its possible to get burnt very quickly without noticing.!!! Take plenty of sun cream and after sun. This is an ideal place just to chill out for a week or so as its quiet. However, we noticed as we were leaving, an influx of families with children and the hotel was full very quickly due to the beginning of the Easter school holidays. So if you like it more peaceful, chose a time when the kids are in school,

The staff were helpful and flexible from the beginning, letting me into my room early on my arrival day and letting me keep it late before departure. Their resident taxi driver was on hand for transport.
It's a simple guest house with few luxury facilities, but the rooms are spacious and clean, showers and wi-fi work well, breakfast is basic but fresh.
