Can't believe more people don't stay here!
Everything about the stay was perfect except I wasn't aware of the fact that the hotel was not staffed 24 hours and no one answered the helpline. With this said, if you need a taxi for an early morning flight and you do not book in advance you will be in big trouble. Had I known this in advance, the end of my stay would have been less stressful.The hotel is lively and there is a bar underneath but for me this was perfect because I felt the party came to me. Actually it's more accurate to call this hotel more like a serviced apartment as the front desk is closed along with access to the lobby/gift shop at night thru the early morning.

Each room was individually decorated in a music theme with local artistry. It was very cleverly done. The cafe and restaurant were excellent and again very cleverly done. Above all the staff could not have been any more pleasant and accommodating. Loved The Ocean Cafe!

Thank you for your hospitality, ocean suites!!
Everyone is different, first thing first, if you are a light sleeper and would like to have your peace and quiet to sleep early, then this place might not be for you, as the live music goes til late and the bar downstairs is a very popular place in town. As a solo traveler, this place is great as it is right in the center of town and few steps away from the beach, choices of restaurants and services are plentiful. I like the friendliness of the bar and suite managers as well as their employees, always nice, kind and smiling. The room has rustic and modern twist to it and very spacious (I would say so as for a couple of people in the same room). Personally I like their attentions and care they showed to their guests, even the need of late check-in/out due to the flight schedules, they always tried to accommodate and help.

Fun place
Great place! Not fancy, but with a touch of art (at least my room). Spacious room, the design concept is quite unique and well done, comfortable bed, shower, etc If they fix the AC (works, but it is installed inside the closet - so, does not work sooo well) and train the staff to provide more local info, this place would be perfect.

Leisurely holiday!
Wonderful staff who were friendly and welcoming! A brilliant location and bar beneath. Breakfast was tasty! The beds weren’t too comfortable. The bathroom could do with more hooks to hang clothes. The TV reception wasn’t great to watch the World Cup games, lucky we didn’t need to stay in much. The Santa Maria beach was just behind the apartment. Really loved visiting Cape Verde. The dancing and music at Ocean Cafe was fabulous to watch, many tourists love to attend here. Pleased with the location and service above all. Great drinks menu! Appreciated the free drink for each guest for staying at the apartment.
