I stayed there just for 30 hours over New Year after being stranded on the island by TACV. This establishment is so chilled out. The room I had was huge and had opening windows and A/C. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. Breakfast was in the garden and a great breakfast it was. The staff are friendly...

A very nice hotel in the center of Sao Filipe with nice hosts and a cosy atmosphere. Old style (bathroom across the patio), fine bar and good food in the restaurant. You feel a little at home here, and the hosts do everything to make the stay a special experience for you.

The Colonial has kept all its charming character from when it was the home of a wealthy merchant. The staff is always helpful and smiling, and the owners friendly. You'll wake up in the morning to the smell of home baked rolls and can enjoy the excellent food.

This hotel has lots of character, from the front, to the middle stairways to the room. We had room 6 - it was enormous, nothing fancy but set the old fashioned scene great. No TV - no great problem as we weren't here to watch telly. On this point - room 6 is on the top floor but is at...

We stayed at the Colonial for four nights and had a great experience. Friendly, helpful staff, excellent food and a good central location. We went on two excursions which were both better than we had imagined, and we were made to feel at home. We will be back!

It was very quiet when we went so we had a private pool! Fabulous, large, old rooms leading directly to the pool area. Bathrooms are not ensuite and that wasn't an issue. Friendly and helpful staff. Drinks and food were very expensive and the food menu is limited. Breakfast was excellent!

This hotel is more like a bed and breakfast type hotel, the room was a good size and it led to the balcony and pool area, plus we had a balcony on the front. The area was a good location walking around tends to be a little hilly. The food was good. There is the Imperial restaurant up from the...

staying here, is experiencing heritage in a splendid way. If you need some luxery, stay here! Some rooms are big and are with a beatiful bathroom, others are smaller and without bathroom. The swimmingpool is lovely, a bit small and filled with salt water, but in this way eco.

This is a charming and authentic property. I love the old style of this complex. If you need to just sit around and not be disturb, this is the place to go. Drinks are good. The owners are very lay back people. They must make good food on the grill. He owns a big grill in the court yard. I...

Our family (kids age 15 and 13) stayed 6 days with Luisa and Vincent at their cosy place, Colonial House in Sao Filipe, Fogo Island, Cape Verde. Old house kept in original style. Friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. We went on island trip and volcano hiking and even got two days at sea catching a 50 kg tuna and a...
