Hotel Dunas de Sal is the most sustainable and environmentally friendly hotel on this location comparing to other more resort like luxurious palaces. The building is an example of a minimal, yet friendly and convivial architecture, because it is built around a garden featuring a decorative swimming pool with
palm trees and a lawn, to which all rooms have direct access and where one can find lounger chairs for sunbathing and enjoying cocktails or fruit juices prepared in the design bar open at all times but lunch and dinner time when there is restaurant with the most delicious, locally sourced food I have ever tasted in terms of hotel food and for the price, meaning price quality ratio is more than optimal for those enjoying fresh fish and salads. Special praise goes to breakfasts that are just amazing with home made jams, wonderful cakes, fruit and special pancakes with chocolate on offer.
Last but not least, such pure, friendly, smiling yet discreet hotel staff is hard to find anywhere else in "developed world" where there are skills but heart(iness) often missing. Definitely recommended for those seeking either peace and tranquillity, like seniors or on the other hand, those enjoying water sports like kite surfing are also welcome because there is space where equipment can be rinsed and stored without disturbing anyone. Perhaps the location itself is not best for families with small children because of the constant winds and the only less positive side would be the quality of beds and towels that was not optimal but forgiven due to the slight remoteness of the island location as such with less products of all kinds available and that goes for the shops in the village as well. That said, I would most warmly recommend this establishment especially to those traveling to Africa for the first time like myself, because it would for sure leave every traveler with the wish to discover more of that wonderful continent.
