Although Boa Vista is entirely directed towards mass tourism driven by the large hotel chains, the real island experience is to be found in the local fishermans life of Sal Rei. Orquidea is the best and most reliable place to stay if you want to discover more of the island than just the pool of a ubiquitous hotel. The rooms...

Our first trip to Boa Vista having visited Sal last year. The islands are literally desert islands. Made of sand and volcanic rock. Boa Vista has a very laid back vibe and the local slogan is No Stress. The lovely people who run this delightful guest house have created a little green oasis on the beach. Every day they tend...

The owners' warm welcome set the tone for our holidays in Cape Verde. We truly enjoyed the guest house's small scale and great location, virtually on the beach. Our rooms were simple but clean. Although views from the terrace were somewhat limited, the hammocks were a bonus. Breakfast in the courtyard more than ok - that is if you don't...

We were really pleasantly surprised. We were met on arrival and shown to our room. It was really nicely finished and had a balcony overlooking the beach and sea and across to part of the town. The room had a able top fridge which was stocked with beer and soft drinks. We also used it for our own wine and...

We enormously enjoyed our 7-day stay here. We stayed in two rooms, one of which had a lovely terrace with a sea view and a hammock. We were literally on the beach, and a five minute walk to the centre of Sal Rei. Breakfasts were excellent, served in a garden patio. Everything was spotlessly clean and comfortable, the hosts were...

This place has lovely views and great owners sadly that did not overcome the issues with animals. As another review has said the family are great and such nice people but they love animals way too much. The write up says there are animals and we accept we may of overlooked reading TA reviews but they are allowed in eating...

This place has stunning views and set in an ideal position. You can see the beach from your room and relax on a hammock and relax. Rooms are functional if a tad basic . There's a fridge but no kettle which is strange. Internet connection is basically useless and you need to find a local bar to get emails. I've...
