Cape Verde Jetaway's comments

The hotel has been well decorated, and has a spacious feel, in a quiet position. The bedroom balconies are a decent size, and quite large enough to have lunch on (room service), or spend time outside. We had lovely views towards Brava, which sometimes disappears almost completely under its mountain cloud. Many of the guests came here to see the volcano on Fogo, and climbed to one or two of the high points in the crater. The Hotel Xaguate is a much more comfortable place to stay than anywhere inside the crater and we were very pleasantly surprised at how much better the hotel was than it appeared in its photos and the staff were all helpful. You can walk into Sao Filipe and down to its huge black sandy beach within about 10 minutes. There are some good local restaurants, the nearest of which was about 4 minutes walk, called Calerom. The volcano has erupted as recently as 1995, and the lava flows over the years are shown on a map to have been to the other side of the island which is reassuring for those staying in Sao Filipe. We particularly enjoyed the Fogo wines, the rose being one of our favourites (not quite up to Baron Philippe but not far). A hotel you will need to combine with other Cape Verde Islands, in order to reach Fogo.
