Ótimo hotel para estar em família. Muitas actividades diurnas e nocturnas. Praia e óptima. Sem ondas e boa temperatura. Restaurantes são muito bons e muita variedade. Já estive neste hotel 2 vezes. Novembro e em Janeiro. Funcionários muito prestáveis. Quartos são muito bons com chaleira, chás, frigobar, shampoo, gel de banho. Hotel tem serviço de toalhas de praia sem caução.

Stunning resort. Open, airy and very big! The hotel wasn't at full capacity so there was a lot of areas to relax in. No need to rush out to loungers. From the beginning to throughout my whole stay the staff are so friendly and attentive. Nothing is a hassle and you are always greeted with smiles and humble locals. My room was located near reception so the beach and a la carte restaurants were a bit of a walk away but the grounds are so well maintained and pretty I didn't mind the walk! There is a piano bar by reception, handy when grabbing a beverage on way to my room after a peaceful day on the beach. This is 1 of 2 places for evening entertainment too. Live bands and a 'White' party were guests got involved with salsa dancing. The amphitheatre is located a short walk from reception. Entertainment was focused around children but was good to go and see some shows. Initially I thought the beach was dirty but turned out the sand is mixed. White and black sand. Strange but beautiful. Again, plenty of loungers. Note, it's very windy so hair clips and beach towel clips are recommended. There are toilets located behind the beach bar and they were kept clean. There is a good selection of restaurants. As a Level Guest I was spoilt as I was able to dine at the a la carte restaurants as often as I wanted. This includes breakfast served until 11am at Atlantic. The food was so fresh, everything tasted amazing. I had a culinary experience I was not expecting. I am a foodie so this was heaven for me. The buffet catered for all, breakfast here was good too. Choice of everything from Cereal, eggs whichever way you prefer, salads and fruit. I treated myself to a devine massage. The masseuse was fab. There are other spa facilities and a well equipped gym onsite. As a solo female traveller I felt Very safe. The men are very respectful to women. The beach is guarded and there is always people about. I loved my trip to Cabo Verde and look forward to going back.
