Comments from Cape Verde Jetaway

Having stayed in many hotels in Cape Verde, this gave a particularly warm and efficient welcome. For those wishing to visit the capital of the Cape Verde Islands, this hotel offers the advantages of being in a better district (the president lives close by), yet with easy access to the bustle. The hotel is on a headland, with the sea on one side. The hotels in central Praia have not been developed as tourist hotels, and if you want to be near the sea you will need to be outside the central district. It is also a lot safer than the central area of Praia. There is a pale sandy beach within a few hundred yards of the Pestano Tropico, which is mainly used by locals. If you want a beach holiday, take a day trip to Tarrafal, or consider staying there or on a different island. Primarily, our guests come here in order to have a stop-over in Santiago on their way to Maio, or for a property inspection trip. There is ADSL internet available in some rooms, and the hotel is with reach of the major planned developments and properties for sale on Santiago such as Sambala and Santiago Golf Resort.

Guest comments

Although I imagined that this would be purely a business hotel, it combined a blend of business and holiday makers. The number of holiday makers has risen since the airport at Santiago has taken international flights. The decor has obviously taken some thought, and the whole effect is rather pleasing. C from London.
