The food was excellent try the African restaurant it was fantastic. They do...

The hotel looks like a sandy castle - only a mile from the airport it is an excellent place if you want to chill out on the beach or by the pools. Very good food, attentive staff, an hour's walk to the town of Sal Rei. Ideal for surfers - the waves and currents making the beach less attractive for...
