Pestana São Tomé - São Tomé - Building
1
7.7 Good (200 reviews)
C$ 223+
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Pestana São Tomé in Sao Tome Island (Agua Grande), you'll be a 5-minute walk from Estadio Nacional 12 de Julho and 14 minutes by foot from Cathedral of Sao Tome. Featured amenities include a business center, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. This hotel has 5 meeting rooms available for events. Free self parking is available onsite.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: This is a well run, professional and clean hotel. The pool and bar/dining areas are nice. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Our lack of knowledge of Portuguese (and French and Spanish) made some specific requests a little complicated, but it all worked out.
Cons: We are a family of three, with an infant. At an otherwise great resort I found it lacking that there was no daily drinking water provided. It is sold via room service or the bar at €3 for a large bottle. It would also have been good if the room had a water boiler and instant coffee available - we were staying in their suite.
6.7 Good
Pros: pool. breakfast options. most of receiption staff spoke english.
Cons: breakfast was good, lunch and dinner were rather lacking in enthusiasm and taste. bathrooms could have been cleaner, they are a bit rundown.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Nice location
Cons: Racist guests! They make dark skinned guests very uncomfortable with the facial expressions, constant staring and avoiding the buffet are when we are around. I am a british citizen, I have travelled to many places. Your hotel staff and guests attitude to black people is poor and backwards. We will let the whole world know. We are first class citizens with money and a voice. Be careful! We paid in full to use your facilities. Sea view room!
7.0 Good
Cons: No coffee making in the rooms or supplied bottle water
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The facilities are great, staff are warm and welcoming especially even if you don’t speak Portuguese or French. The evening dinner by the pool is excellent with the live music. Pestana really has it all.
Cons: Aside the buffet for dinner, I didn’t quite see variety in their a la crate menu. They could explore more options especially as people might want to make changes in what they eat for dinner.
Omali São Tomé - São Tomé - Outdoors view
2
8.6 Excellent (328 reviews)
C$ 282+
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Omali São Tomé in Sao Tome Island (Agua Grande), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Cathedral of Sao Tome and Fort de Sao Sebastiao. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. A roundtrip airport shuttle is complimentary (available 24 hours).
5.0 Okay
Pros: Friendly staff, spacious hotel room and nice pool.
Cons: I have to admit that in my personal view Omali does not offer sufficient value for the money. The food, which is often praised as a prime reason to stay there, was really bad; I had a seafood spaghetti which was full of sand and causing stomach pain (and worse) throughout the night. The next day I ordered a hamburger but the meat patty was raw inside, the fries tasteless. For room service Omali charges extra 5 Euros for "delivery" without telling you prior to order. Breakfast is also not as rich as you would imagine for 200 Euros/night, lacking options and variety unless you pay extra. A Cappuccino is 5 Euros and not good. Also, the location is not as peaceful as you might think. The beach is across the main road linking the airport with Sao Tome capital, so you have traffic right behind you. Furthermore, the gym is very tiny. Nothing serious in total, but considering the prices, not really acceptable. Therefore, I do not recommend to stay at Omali unless you have money to burn.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Room was big, clean and comfortable. Wifi worked well. Friendly staff. Restaurant had good food - albeit a bit pricey. Very nice, relaxing pool.
Cons: The hotel refused to refill the bottle of water in the room, saying we're only entitled to one per day and any additional water needs to be purchased ($$$). I had never before stayed in a hotel that would not provide as much free drinkable water as you would need - especially in a country where you can't drink tap water. This was very disappointing.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Omali is the best hotel in São Tomé if you are looking for a cozy, environment friendly and comfortable stay during your visit to the São Tomé island. The staff is super friendly and helped me organizing a car and tours during my stay with them. Staff speaks English, which is rare on the island. I travelled with my 10 year old daughter and we changed our plans to stay another few nights at Omali.
Cons: There’s not a thing I could think of I don’t like about Omali.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The place is beautiful, the staff are super friendly, everything is arranged very thoughtfully and the food is delicious
Cons: None - although beware crabs on the lawn after dark!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Immaculate pool and garden, fantastic breakfast buffet, very helpful multilingual staff
Cons: the rooms are not the latest in luxury, but clean and comfortable
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great lodge. Spacious, well decorated and very clean rooms. The staff is very friendly and very helpfull. The garden and the pool are very nice.
Cons: We booked a tour with the hotel to explore Sao Tome. The tour itself was very nice but the car used for the tour is extremly unconfortable and the tour is very long. We left at 9h00 and came back around 18h00 with backpain (the car seats are replaced by small benches where you can barely seat).

7.1 Good
Pros: Direct access to the garden and pool from the room terrace was nice. Breakfast buffet was good with a selection of breads and fruit. Virtually on the seafront and just a short walk to a good restaurant.
Cons: The mattress was new but very(!) firm - kept me awake during the night. The hotel was very quiet while we were there so not much atmosphere and there was noisy building work going on around the reception area.
6.0 Good
Pros: The room was comfortable and the bed was clean almost always and the location of the lighting was good. The hot water and the shower flow was good and security was adequate.
Cons: They have difficulty understanding English which made communication difficult. Their food was one way without any variety. Since it’s an international hotel they should include more international cuisines. Wifi was very bad. The pool isn’t that great and the surrounding of the hotel isn’t good compared to the inside.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Friendly and central
Cons: A bit noisy

7.0 Good
Pros: The staff is wonderful. The place is spotless. I loved relaxing on the upstairs common veranda. The location is in a neighborhood.... i had a motobike so no problem at all. Coming back from the southern part of the island... I really wanted to stay there again, but my need for a solid night sleep took me elsewhere.
Cons: I really loved everything about the place except the mattress, which was very uncomfortable for me.... i felt springs in my back. It was a new mattress but just had hard springs. I slept very poorly. :(
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The guesthouse is a nicely designed space with a very natural feel to it, including a yard, roof terrace and common area - the atmosphere is really relaxed. The whole place is well kept and spotlessly clean, rooms are spacious and comfortable. All of the staff are amazingly friendly, especially the guys at reception, who were wonderful! The location is quite convenient as well, town centre with its shops, restaurants etc is within walking distance. Highly recommended!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The guest house is very clean and comfortable. It is in the city and met the requirements I was looking for. The staff was very friendly and nice. I appreciated that they also offered activities and exchanged our euros. There was no TV in the room but then I didn't plan on watching it. I highly recommend this facility for anyone looking for an affordable and comfortable place to stay in Sao Tome.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff is absolutely fantastic and makes this place so special. It’s very clean and I loved the common area. Every evening people were sitting together on the balcony chatting.
Cons: The breakfast isn’t quite worth the money, but you can easily go to the next bakery.

Pros: Loved sweet guest house. So clean and airy with the cosiest spaces. Staff super friendly
4.0 Okay
Pros: Location is great and there's parking available. It is also clean and there's a very nice common space for guests.
Cons: One member of the staff was quite unpleasant, changing my friends to a worse room just because they complained about an A/C not working. Also, they were always trying to charge us more than they should - adding breakfasts or transfers we did not ask/use, and not being completely honest.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything, besides the staff was really helpful and arranged our transport around the island even when they didn’t had to.
Cons: Nothing.
