Breakfast copious but normal for a "resort" The only smiling staff is at the breafast
The young receptionnist didn't find my reservation and almost scolded me. When she gave the key of the room I asked where is the room. She just showed me with her hand ....somewhere. While I was looking for my room I saw a cleaning staff sleeping on a chair in a room. Nobody speaks english. Nobody knows the trails No wifi in the rooms
Very tasty breakfast, really nice big room with a terrace overlooking the sea. The swimming pool area was nice. Last but not least, we arrived in the morning and got the room keys already!
Wifi was very slow and hardly working in the room, aircon in the room didn't work well
We booked again and again during our stay in Santo Antao (we hiked quite a lot and we could not always be in Porto Novo). This is the best hotel we had over 2 weeks in Cabo Verde: clean, nice, with nice services and good internet. The beds were awesomely comfortable: I had great nights of sleep! The bathroom was perfect and the water had always a good pressure and good temperature. The breakfast was also very nice, with very many choices. For the people who say that the staff did not speak other languages, I can say that only one person was able to speak french (beside Portuguese and Criollo) ... and this is a bit funny for a four stars hotel....however I would like to remind you that it's you traveling to another country so it's you that should be able to interact. And keep in mind where you are: you are in a country that is struggling to develop! So try to be patient (people are so kind in here!) and everything will be understood and fixed. Just close bye you will find nice restaurants. A great tip: a grill place a few steps away going toward the center, on your right: they have a nice grill and food was awesome! Two nice cats can visit you at the pool: I loved them, they were so sweet and beautiful!
Once we had dinner. It was nothing special... I preferred to eat outside the following nights. However having a restaurant inside is a great option.
It’s all about expectations. If you don’t expect anything, you get a real African hotel with nice garden and swimming pool, good hot showers and OK food. If you expect a for star resort, you might be disapointed a little bit, it’ more like a 3 star. We loved it more than the new and clean Tiduca hotel.
Clean bedding, one of the greatest restaurants on the island (Sabores Ratatui) is located just down the road when you escape from the hotel
Mostly unfriendly staff, old-fashioned equipment, air conditioning in disturbance, rather filthy bathroom and ground, broken head shower, average breakfast, pretty far from the harbour, this place is a fraud
