This was our first visit to Cape Verde and we were so impressed with the location: right on the beach and within walking distance of the town of Santa Maria. The hotel is immaculately clean and we had a good sized room with a modern, well appointed bathroom with a powerful shower and lots of hot water. This was our first experience of all inclusive and we enjoyed it. There was an amazing choice of foods at all meals but sometimes when displayed in large trays it does not look as appetizing as it tastes. The staff were very good at clearing tables quickly. I particularly enjoyed the fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice. The hotel staff were all so pleasant and eager to help.
