“Good Weekend Getaway”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

We were visiting friends in Angola and came here for the weekend. At around $160 USD for a night was extremely steep, but not out of line compared to Luanda. The rooms are small cabins and are very comfortable, they have a small fridge and AC. However no hot water in the shower is unfortunate. Take a shower in the evening as the water is a bit warmer. They have a nice little beach with chairs for rent where we spent most of our time. It also included a really nice breakfast.

We also had dinner at the restaurant which had a great selection of seafood. The food was really good.

Reviewed 27 September 2011

Exclusive ambience and excellent beach.The wooden cabins (4) are compact and comfy for a couple.Only problem was no running hot water in the bathroom - what the hell - when one spends most of the time on the beach ! Peacocks and other beautiful birds are seen on the property.Tenting accomodation is also available.The Portuguese food and personalised service is very good.The Saturday night we spent there was great fun with good food and great music videos from the 70's and 80's projected.Lunch on Sunday was crowded - better place your order and book your table before you take off to the beach.The beach is the best in Cabo Ledo.
