I have completely fallen in love with all of the staff here! I want to take them all home with me! SO happy! If anyone knows any of the animation team please get in touch!

Flew from gatwick airport on the 16th june 2014 with my husband, flight was ok but think on board entertainment should have been available. The hotel is visable from the plane if sitting on the left hand side of the plane, check in for the hotel was the best i have ever experienced there was about 6 six people on the desk checking people in so no waiting time, we were veryb surprised on checking in as we were upgraded so didnt know what to expect, we were greeted by a fruit punch on arrival in the hotel which was very nice, our laugage was taken to our room within 5 mins of getting into our room, we were given an upgrade and our room was amazing we had a living area , bathroom with 2 sinks , seperate toilet , then our bedroom massive with loads of storage, once settle we recieved a phone call making sure everthing was ok for us.The hotel is immaculatly clean, the people are very friendly, you are not alowed to keep sun beds before 9am if any beds are kept prior to this time the towels etc were removed and put outside the towel hut, the pool is quit cool but very spacious, the beach is lovely and clean. The food you are spoilt for choice always something there to eat and on a sunday you could have champagne with your breakfast. Although your transfer time is only 3 and hour minutes from the airport you never hear any noise from aircrafts.Drinks always available on tap if wanted.If you want any duty free i would suggest getting from the airport your travelling from or the flight into Cape Verde as there is not much there at there airport or the complex for that type of thing.

Room Tip: lower floor rooms are nice

Loved every minute of this holiday from start to finish. The location is beautiful the hotel staff and warm and friendly. The food was excellent. Could do with another bar area in the hotel we thought. Perfect for a relax and chill out. The rooms are a little tiered wasn't keen on the beaded wardrobe doors. Overall can't say a bad word about the location. Will be returning.

What can I say, this is a fantastic hotel, the rooms are clean and plenty of drawer space, one tip though, the hair dryer isn't very powerful . The food is fantastic, my husband is a fussy eater and he found something every day. I have booked again for next year, for longer this time, the people are so friendly and there is always something going on .

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor with a sea view and it was fine

Excellent hotel, really friendly staff, food and dining excellent. The Asian restaurant was really something special.

We asked for a room upgrade because we had no view, and after 2 nights wee given one of the best rooms in the hotel.

Make use of the activities as there is not a lot to do outside the hotel, however the 4x4 trip was good fun.

Lovely walk along the beach for an hour to Sal Rai, a lovely beach bar along the way.

One note of caution, the taxi drivers in the town were aggressive and it was quite threatening having them pushing and pulling you towards their taxis, I wouldn't go there at night.

To sum up, a lovely relaxing holiday, enjoyed the Air Rifle shooting competition in the afternoons, the Bingo was free too, but no prizes, lol

You also cannot beat the 3 minute transfer from the airport

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms are lovely, if you don't like the view just ask for an upgrade, you may have to...
