Just back from our third visit to this hotel and would just like to say it gets better every year. Already booked for next January, no better place to go for sunshine in British winter time. Great staff, immaculately clean, great range of food. Beautiful sand beaches.

This hotel is lovely laid out and has beautiful grounds/features. The hotel is built in the style of an African palace and looks lovely fitting with the scenery especially when you view this from the beach. The rooms are spacious and split into bathroom bedroom, living area and balcony I think we were staying in a superior suite. The room...

Our first visit to Cape Verde was everything we expected and more. The Hotel was great, the staff were 100% intent on making sure everybody had a good time. I cannot fault the staff or the service, food, entertainment. When we were there, a Saharan Dust Cloud descended which grounded all flights in or out. Many people were stranded for...

Great holiday. Everything about the hotel was great for all ages. Food lovely especially the speciality restaurants. Lots going on which is good as nothing much outside the hotel. Would go again. Also went to the melia dunas resort in sal which preferred but only because it was newer.

I read some of the reviews prior to departure and set off with an open mind. The flight was very basic and I was glad I had booked extra leg room seats, there appeared to be many passengers behind me struggling with the lack of space and distance. The crew were lovely. The food on the plane was adequate but...

Positive points first: Staff amazingly helpful, professional and plentiful. I have never seen such a well staffed hotel and I have stayed 5 star before. It is harder not to find a staff member then to find one. Both food choice and quality is very good. You are able to eat almost continually for 24 hours. Lots of fish. All...
