We stayed here for a week at the beginning of February. The hotel is fine, not outstanding, but nothing wrong with it. We had a ground floor room in the new building, which had a large patio area, well protected from the wind. It has to be said that a week was too long here, as there is nothing for...

We have just spent 5 comfortable nights at Foya Branca beach side resort. Our room had a view overlooking a deserted, golden sandy beach with sea rich turquoise and deep blues. Our room had a spacious and private balcony and the room itself was well appointed. We were on a bed and breakfast package and chose to eat at other...

Our first reaction when seeing this hotel is that the ocean view and pools were beautiful. The room was nothing special. The location and hotel grew on us. It was quiet, spacious, clean, everything worked. There were no outlets in the bedroom but one of the hotel crew brought me an extension cord. We had a sitting area-tv didnt work...

We have just left this resort for a hotel in town. The flies are unbearable. This is not a minor problem. You cannot open the patio doors without filling your room with flies. You cannot sit by the pool, sit in the snack bar where there is good wifi or enjoy the restaurant, where the haven't opened the doors or...

I stayed last week at the hotel, for 6 days. When arriving they gave us a small room without terrace, and there was a wall facing the window. As it was late at night, we slept there, but next morning we went to reception to complain, as those were not the hotel pictures I had seen on booking.com. After talking...

Hotel is very convenient from the airport. It is just the right distance from Mindelo town centre to avoid being bothered on the beach. Rooms are well cleaned and reception staff helpful and friendly. Grounds well maintained. Waiting staff could have been friendlier. You felt you were more of a nuisance than customer.

Did not stay here, but ate at the restaurant after spending some time on the beach. Service was good and food was tasty. Staff was really friendly when we asked if we could leave our suitcases with their reception for a few hours before heading to the airport.

Large hotel situated next to a beautiful beach however the beach isn't suitable for swimming and is always empty. The hotel (in August) is generally very quiet apart from day visitors who come to use the pool and bar. The rooms are practical and clean. Wifi is available for free however can only connect around the pools and main area,...
