This is the best place to stay in Sal Rei (we tried them all except the pricey ones, and those we visited). Rooms are smallish etc as would be expected from the price but are pleasant, cleaned DAILY and have modernised ensuite facilities. It is completely secure and comfortable. Good breakfast and for a couple of euros you can add fried egg, local sausage and cachupa. Try the dish of the day and the seafood pasta. Best place to eat too!The patron speaks English. Bookings can be made by phone when you are there. Oh - its on the square so the rooms at the front are sometimes noisy as the taxi rank (such as it is) is just outside, inside rooms have tiny windows - but you will be with interesting people - 3 mins to the beach just across the square. Free wi fi in the square!!

The Pensao is right in the center of the street, it is far away from those "all in clusive-all you can stuff in side you type of accomodations" and if you are not looking for that kind of stay on this beautiful island, that Pensao Santa Isabel is the best option available.
Your hosts are an middle aged couple. If you can`t speak portugese, than your interaction with them and the staff will be very limited, but if you speak just a little, that their kindness really comes to life.
The breakfast is from 7:30-¸0:30, and the 8 days we stayed there it was always the same stuff (3 pieces of bread, some orange jam, cheese, coffee, some juice and eggs if you asked for them), but it was always served fresh.
The rooms are daily cleaned, and the sheets on the beds are changed every few days.

The price for couples is 30.000 escudos per night and if you are solo that is 25.000 CVE.
The Pensao has a great location if you are willing to enjoy the center, interact with the locals, have a great exit point for some trips, be close to the beach, and mostly be willing to get bothered (A LOT) from the Senegal merchants :)

Definitly would come back again.

Room Tip: Choose the number 5, it`s the only one with a balcony and a straight view to the city square.
