“Basic hotel, very bad breackfast”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

The hotel´s location is good and the furnithure are OK, as well as the bathroom. Though the shower cabin didn´t close well and the whole bathroom gets wet when you take a shower. Everything else is ok usable, there is a fridge too, but no safe. Could be quite loud at weekends, because of both bars right next to it. Nice sea view. But the worse thing at all was the "breakfast"! There is actually NO BREACKFAST at all- some milk,coffe and hot water cans, some cheap juice and breackfast choko flakes, one small plate butter, some boiled eggs, one small plate bad ham- thats all. And the most of this doesn´t get refilled. If you can spare the first meal of the day- than it could be ok to stay at.

Room Tip: ask to get a seaview room

Reviewed 5 February 2012

After trying to book into a few other hotel with no luck the taxi driver suggested Hotel Terra so we went to the front desk and tried are luck. The man at the desk was what you wouldnt call a friendly type at first although as are stay went on he seemed to be more friendly and helpful. We hoped to have a room for 7 nights starting on the 31st, the manager said he could only do till the friday so we booked the 3 nights and thought if worst comes to worst we would just go back to hotel central, come the friday I asked if we could have another 4 nights and they said yes, the price of the rooms is 46 euros a night which I would say was a little to much, the breakfast here is the biggest let down of the hotel along with them having not hot water for the showers. Although the rooms are cleaned day and have ac, tv, and nice bed. On the whole it's a good hotel although a little expensive for what you get. Cape verde is a nice place to come as far as sun for money at this time of year (jan) although if we come again we are just going to book the flight and sort accommodation out on arrival.

we stayed in Santa Maria at Hotel Nha Terra in Sept. 2010. The room was cleaned and the service carefully complied all our requests, the location just in front of the Santa Maria beach and a few steps from the centre of the village.

Do not stay at Nha Terra. The cleaners stole 100 euro from my travel bag. When we reported this to the Sal police, they told us that it was not the first time.

Plus: it's basic, and that's what you pay for.
Cons: Atmosphere, not really friendly. Facilities in general; Pool, bar, AC, restaurant. Closed or not working.
A huge apartment complex is now being built in front of the hotel. So there goes the location as well.
Warning: Do not book this hote trough hotels.com
The owner does not honor reservations and payments trough that service.
