I stayed here from 4th July - 11th July on a HB Basis. Although I had read the reviews before booking the accommodation I came with an open mind and was pleasantly surprised. As a solo traveller and this being my maiden voyage so to speak this was my reasoning behind choosing the hotel. In my opinion I got it spot on..The staff were amazing and made me feel safe and welcome. The rooms were basic yes I agree but comfortable and clean. The food was a little repetitive it's true and when I return again which I have every intention of doing, then I wouldn't go HB. Like other reviews the pizza place across the road was very good although they only serve limited snacks during the daytime and the full menu in the evenings. ..caught me out as I thought I would have a meal there before my evening flight but only got an omelette. .The beaches are beautiful to visit and there are beach restaurants all though the one at Castillo beach was very pricey and not very good. I had the half roast piri piri chicken and it was more like a sparrow. There is an English pool bar called Scoobys which is on the top road..its ok if you are desperate for a taste of home. .food is reasonable and good. The local bus service is good costing 2.50euro to get to town or a taxis costs approx 8-10 euro. I booked a trip on the seafaris catamaran to visit the caves and a beach BBQ. I thought it was a long day and we had to wait almost 2 hours on the beach as the passengers were ferried across from the boat before they served the food..It wasn't really what I thought it would be and the visit around the caves was disappointing. .but you live and learn. On the whole I thoroughly enjoyed myself and got exactly what I wanted out of the holiday which was to feel safe..have some sunshine and a nice relaxing time. Thank you Torre Velha..you gave me that.
