Very Good8.0
Nice but neither worth the money nor the 4* rating
Nice place but not worth the price nor the high rating. Gym pretty much non existent Pool extremely cold No facilities such as table tennis, games etc. Limited space around pool, all in direct sun (tarps against sun protection would be highly recommended) Nice breakfast but very limited selected for this price Room service did not provide towels and took 3h and 2 calls to finally get them

Nice, no resort beach
Very nice place to stay. Within short walking distance to a beach. Would be nice to have better WiFi options.

Beautiful hotel, great swimming pool (salt water which makes total sense given the water issues in Cabo Verde). Attentive staff and very helpful manager who helped me with setting up business contacts. And the restaurant is excellent, try the suckling pig

Nice hotel but lacking in service
Although the hotel is overall fine & our stay went well, it lacks in service for a 4 star hotel. For example, they advertise a free shuttle to the airport upon request. Although we had requested one in advance, our shuttle was nowhere to be found on our arrival. For our return trip to the airport, we had to go through 3 people before getting ''approval from management'' for it. Another example: they advertise room service. However, there is no room service menu in your room & absolutely no breakfast options once they get you the restaurant diner menu. We were a couple and only had 1 bathrobe. Every single day of our 3 day stay, we never had a pool towel available. Nobody offers you drinks at the pool and there are only 2 umbrellas for shade. Etc etc... Basically, clean hotel, we liked our room and had a nice stay, staff was friendly... but definitely not a 4-star hotel service in my book.

Not as nice as the photos
We reserved a room with two queen beds, and were given a room with two iron single beds made up as a double. The poor bellman had to remake the beds into two very uncomfortable and squeaky singles.
