Pros: The room was comfortable and spacious the hotel has 3 swimming pools with clean wArm water And the facilities never feel crowded. Breakfast is excellent and as we were on bed and breakfast terms did Not use the main restaurant. Staff were friendly and well trained. The beach facilities were a few yards away with A beach bar loungers and a good lunch time restaurant. I should add that our visit was in October at an earlier Visit in April I found the water not particularly warm. Santa Maria with its shops and restaurants is only a few minutes walk from the hotel.
Cons: Can’t find much criticism but you need to be aware that the island is virtually a desert so everything is brought In apart from the excellent fresh fish landed daily at the pier. The island is also very windy

5.8 Okay
Pros: The dancing shows in the evening are quite good!
Cons: The food is horrible. Plastic, artificial, industrial. I never in my life eat such things how can you serve that in a 5 star hotel?? Same for the drinks. Therefore the “all included” is useless. As for the rest, everything is cheap and low quality.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is beautiful, clean and well looked after. Prime location on the beach and the staff are so friendly and make you feel welcome. There are many options for food and drinks and it was all lovely! I would definitely stay in this hotel again; it was a great holiday on a gorgeous island and a very relaxing vibe. I would recommend doing the Island Tour and snorkelling trip and booking with Nando (Nando Tours) who stands by the hotel beach bar!
Cons: The room is beautiful but the sofa is quite hard and the back cushion sticks out so you don't have much space to sit comfortably. Other than that the hotel was perfect!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was perfect
5.0 Okay
Pros: The hotel is beautiful and the team is welcoming and smiling
Cons: The lack of professionalism of the employees. We had to complain several times about a water problem in our bathroom. Indeed the water was yellow, which is inadmissible in a Hilton. After our complaints they finally decided to change our room, but this was the disaster in a week we changed room four times. And the 4 rooms had this yellow water problem.
6.3 Good
Pros: Breakfast was great and the receptionist Yannik was the best! Nice garden.
Cons: The sunbeds at the beach are old and broken and the lounger pillows need to be replaced. Everything is a bit outwarn. The majority of the stuff wasn’t very friendly. You didn’t even get a smile. Our room was a bit tiny for three people and the free drinking water in the room tasted like Chlorine. The octopus salat at the Bounty Bar was definitely not a salad. The price performance ratio is bad (we didn’t have all inclusive). We would have expected more from the Hilton.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is really nice. The rooms are big, well maintained, providing all the necessary amenities. The pool is nice, the beach as well. The city center is about 20 min walk or you can take a cab for 3€ per one way. The breakfast is really good, you can find any choice you like.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Location, swimming pool
Cons: Bad food, not good bungalow, smell bad in the room because of the humidity
6.3 Good
Pros: In Cape Verde this is probably the upper end of middle re what’s available hotel wise (comparing on a more global basis Id say it’s more at the lower end of middle). Great beach location, pool area looked nice enough (though never used it as was at beach all day). Rooms fine, clean, no frills. Food ok, in the context of comments above.
Cons: Having to pay for wifi and use of the valuables safe in room seemed a bit tight. Slightly perched at the edge of town.
7.1 Good
Pros: Animation staff, their shows and activities. Hotel location off the beach and close to the village.
Cons: Construction works during our stay not pleasant when you are on vacations, guests should be warned of works during the reservation. The hotel ran out of water supply one day (probably caused by the works). An overall hotel renovation is advisable (rooms, swimming pools area, etc.). The meals room have too much noise, improvement recommended. Please, add more fresh fish and fresh fruit to the meals. Expensive internet rates.
6.7 Good
Pros: Comfortable bed. We got 'welcome' wine (without being able to open it- no opener in a room
Cons: Cleaning lady woke us up almost every morning (even if i asked not to disturb). Food overcooked. Noise - we lived with a street view even if i asked different (hotel was full only 30%). Ripping off for internet - 25 euro per week. However we used only 2 full days.
7.9 Good
Pros: We enjoyed!
Cons: The food, beach and services!
6.3 Good
Pros: Good location. Very very nice staff. 3 pools, enough for everyone, never too crowded. Enough beds on the beach.
Cons: First we stayed in a Superior Bungalow: its like a wood container, too much basic and with un awful shower (see pictures). And of course, you can hear everything from outside and your neighbors next door... We spoke with the receptionist that kindly moved us too another room, this time much better. But the price payed for the bungalows it's outrageous!!! It was everything fine until suddenly we started to see lots of cockroaches outside and when we came for dinner surprise! We had them in the room too! Next day same thing. Always asking for spray to kiil them. The staff was always super friendly and comprehensive but it's simply not acceptable that a kind of hotel like this has cockroaches!!! Also the food... Lot of variety but we would prefer less variety and a little bit of quality. Little variety of fruit, not even a natural juice! Honestly, not worth the money!!!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great rooms.
7.9 Good
Cons: Have to pay for WiFi. It’s free everywhere else

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Were very helpful in helping me out locally in needing a room for the night.
6.0 Good
Pros: Not much, apart from friendly staff
Cons: Facilities apart from room pretty dire whole apartment blocks locked down, one very small facility for breakfast about 20 tables catering for over 500 and full of people with no manners ! Reminiscent of Eastern European apartment blocks of 20 years ago. No internet, no mobile Connexxion, no stress? Lots !!
7.9 Good
Pros: Very nicely designed hotel complex. Everything we needed, was near - shop, restoran etc. We had nice walk to bikini beach. It was good to have access to pool. We liked to have apartment, cookwear were included.
Cons: As other write, it was like chostdown. We saw people only in the morning, when was breakfast time. Also there was no dishwashing soap in room, maybe thats why were some dirty dishes in kitchen cabinet.
7.9 Good
Pros: Comfortable bed. Kettle in room. Very helpful, polite staff on reception at night and in the morning
Cons: No reply when I emailed to ask if they could organize a taxi to collect us from the airport as we arrived at 1am.As it turned out, there were plenty of taxis at the airport then so no problem, thankfully
7.1 Good
Pros: Free shuttle to Santa Maria; ability to cook food yourself; grocery store in the village
Cons: Too long distance to the see, noisy neighbours, poor quality restsurants
4.6 Okay
Pros: Swimming pool, and nothing else.
Cons: The location is very very bad, the property is in meddle of nowhere, there is nothing to do at night time, no shops around, internet or WIFi doesn’t work at all in the room, people have to in balcony at later night if they need to you their mobile or any other device.
8.8 Excellent
Cons: Industrial/processed food for breakfast... not even fresh fruit but canned and sweetened fruit. How is this possible?!! Poor coffee. Wifi on extra cost. Once again how is this possible?! I would rather pay a few more euros than having to pay these additional hidden costs. I trust that low cost airline - not to name some here - is not the model followed by this hotel...
6.7 Good
Pros: It's cheaper compared to many other options on this island. There was a lot of space inside the flat and it was good to have a fridge to store food and drinks.
Cons: The staff are a bit unresponsive, I tried contacting them before arriving by sending them e-mails but they didn't respond. I had to find another way of contacting them and so I did. Some things inside the flat were broken but I think it was OK. Not in excellent condition but OK. I think it's best to keep in mind that you don't have a lot of options in terms of restaurants and cafés if you are staying in Vila Verde. Some people recommended me to go to Santa Maria and look for good restaurants with good food.
5.4 Okay
Cons: I had booked in to th hotel for 4 nights, but had to leave after first night and return back to the uk due to an immediate family member taking ill. The hotel would not refund the 3 nights even under those unforeseen circumstances. Find it very poor of the hotel to treat a customer like this. Couldn’t get a flight back to Manchester, so ended get a flight to Gatwick airport which was a late arrival back into the uk, so I had to pay more money for a hotel, then had to get four trains back to Manchester airport to collect my car from the airport, all this cost was never forswen to me. I explained to the hotel what I had to do to get back home early, and the cost implications, yet they still wouldn’t be compassionate and refund the 3 nights!

Pros: The staff were very nice. The rooms spacious, and cleaned every day. The pool and jacuzzi were great! Breakfast was good and plenty of selection.
Cons: Beds were hard and we had an issue with room key which was resolved by getting a pair of extra keys. One of the nights some guests were very loud and drunk which woke up possibly the whole hotel in the middle of the night. Not sure if the staff did anything or if they could however it is very annoying to be woken up by shouting and slamming which lasted for over an hour. Apart from this incident the hotel was peaceful and relaxing.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Modern look and feel, great location away from the main strip.
Cons: The shower facilities could be more cleaner or changed to be in line with the modern look and feel.

Pros: Central Hotel, is very well located in Santa Maria city centre. It is 5 minutes walk from the beach. The breakfast is included at their sister property Cafe Del Mar, so you can enjoy a full sea view at breakfast time. The rooms are simple and quite old, but are very well equipped and very clean. The whole place is sparkling. And the staff is very welcoming and helpful, speaking, english, french, and ready to help to make the most of your stay. I definitely recommend the place!
6.7 Good
Pros: Staff was welcoming. Food provided in "Cafe del Mar" (not situated in the hotel itself) was very tasty and waiting staff over there great! I had breakfast provided at the place even a week before via different accommodation and I had always been looking forward to eating there in the mornings. Definitely have some traditional Capeverdean B-fast, "catchupa" included AND ice-cream. Delicious!
Cons: Location was quite rough - constructions and bad noises from the streets till very late/early hours. Room had too dark interior. Unfortunately, not too much effort was made regarding a little change I was supposed to receive after paying in cash at reception (60 CVE). I mentioned it twice but then just decided to leave it as a tip as it seemed too much hassle...

Pros: The hosts went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay at the resort. Great beach and fab location.
Cons: Everything was fab!!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: everything really. Property had one of the best locations in Santa Maria being right on the beach (although the closest bit of beach wasn't great for swimming because of rocks) it wasn't far to walk to get to nice sandy swimming water.
Cons: Nothing I didn't like. Suggested improvements: perhaps a mirror in the main room, the mirror in the bathroom although large was in a dimly lit room and you had to stretch over a large basin to see in it properly. (Bring your own travel mirror). Being short I found the stools on the balcony a bit uncomfortable, think I would have preferred a little table and chairs. These are minor gripes though

Pros: Ron was super easy to get hold of and very helpful, and the apartment itself was immaculate.

9.2 Excellent
Cons: I would have been nicer to have an area to sit out. The balcony area was not very comfortable due to high wall to sit on bar stools. Having said that at least there was something but the view wasn't very good at all.

Pros: I really liked the pool on the roof, and the view from there!
Cons: Internet worked poorly.
7.9 Good
Pros: The pool is nice. It is very close to the beach.
Cons: I found a lot of cockroaches in the room. The wifi only works outside the room, so it's like not having the service. At night it's very noisy, and some clients would listen to very loud music very early in the morning.
7.5 Good
Pros: locally source and homemade cook food
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very central , close to the vibrant action in Santa Maria, fabulous view from the top floor & great to have the use of the pool , spacious, clean & good facilities in apartment
Cons: Some nights were noisy due to the fact the appartement is directly behind a local nightclub Kalema , but didn’t disturb my sleep
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: We left the property after 2 nights as it was simply impossible to stay, there is a club there that closes at 6am and people around the building are screaming all night long. The owner was suppose to refund the remaining days and still hasn’t done it a month later and after many notifications. We’re now reporting the place.
