Beautiful if you bear in mind this is the `third world`. Very clean hotel, staff were always sweeping and mopping floors in public areas. Good location on a fantastic beach. Good swimming pools. The food was excellent quality and varied in the buffet restaurants. The Mandalay `asian` restaurant and the Cabo Verdean specialist restaurant were both excellent. The staff were smiling and friendly. All in all, an excellent time had by our family, we would definitely return. Take the Island tour from the beach, it`s a good day out for 25 euros p/person. We went with Fidel, booked on the beach, he is local and very knowledgeable.
