I liked the hotel very much. It is built in a horse-shoe shape around a big and nice pool area opening up to a view of the Atlantic Ocean. The quality of materials and cleanliness were great. Ambiance also very good as this was obviously the preferred hotel for the business community and visiting dignitaries from mainland Africa. Breakfast was pretty good. We tried the restaurant and it was fantastic. Best Food we had in all of Cape Verde, which was a big surprise as hotel restaurants rarely are worth the time and money. Staff was very warm and friendly, they are always ready with all of your needs and requests. Overall experience was very nice. Highly recommended if you need a Place to stay in Praia.
