Cape Verde Jetaway's Comments

This is a recently built hotel in a very convenient location close to the new Italian shoe shop. Most bedrooms are on the first floor or higher, with stairs to reach the rooms and dining room. The hotel is built in an "L" shape with a pool facing south, with sunbeds, a "beach" with white sand, and a garden. There are mature plants by the pool including hibiscus. It looked very gleaming and spotless. Bedrooms are a very reasonable size. It is the only value hotel we know with such a central position and a south facing land area of this size, and it suits those on a budget holiday or wishing to inspect property - much of which is in the process of being built. It is right behind the Hotel Morabeza. It is currently at the edge of Santa Maria, and to the north of it are sand dunes. You can see the Djadsal development from here, and from certain parts of the higher floors you can get a glimpse of the ocean. There are just a few sunloungers by the swimming pool. There has been building work going on near to the hotel. Sometimes the water fails here and also the hot water. Tthe hotel is perhaps more suitable for those who will be out and about during the day, such as property hunters, or those participating in watersports.

Customer comments

The trip to Santa Maria Cape Verde was brilliant, we loved it. The Hotel Pontao was very good and well worth the money, clean, new, friendly. We couldn't have been better looked after. The manager and staff very helpful. It just needs the grounds landscaping. I dropped enough hints!! We talked to the chap who will be in charge of the animation in a couple of weeks time. He has plans for developing the hotel amenities in the future. We would recommend a stay there to anyone. J from Bristol.

The hotel's OK and the rooms are quite good, nice high ceilings... in a good location, I was quite impressed with the Pontao. A from Windsor

The hotel was very nice clean and everybody made us welcome and was very helpful. The people who suggested that the pool area should be landscaped would be pleased as they have already started and it looked better even in the short time we were there. Y from Bishops Stortford.

The Pontoon was very clean - breakfast very basic. C from Dundee

The hotel was fine.  I didn't spend too much time there anyway.  Big room, bathroom and air con, fridge etc..  Breakfast was simple but good. A from London
