Building beautiful from the outside and from the inside, with the charm of colonial architecture, very tasteful decoration. Location is great: close to the beach with its nice beach cafés and close to the center with its restaurants. Next door: an excellent Italian bakery (the best croissants I have ever had! I recommend to have breakfast there - I don't like breakfast in hotels). Will return there when I come back to Boa Vista (soon, I hope!). Btw., I prefer Boa Vista to Sal. Less touristy, and (perhaps as a consequence) the locals are much nicer. And, in contrast with Sal, the big hotels are far away. And yes, this is a hotel for the individual traveler (i.e., this is not where the big travel agencies (TUI, ...) unload their groups.

The apartments are incredibly spacious and decorated in a very simplistic chic style that was lovely but in need of a little sprucing up. Peaceful location only a short walk to the beach and 10 minute walk out of town across a large piece of wasteland, not ideally suited to single travelers though as quite isolated and dark if going out at night.
The night watchman were friendly but the other staff even given the language barrier could definitely have been more personable and cracked a smile occasionally.
I would not recommend the breakfast which was the limited.. same thing everyday and really lacking imagination.
Beware of the hotel tax which was charged when we were leaving and had not accounted for in our currency.
I enjoyed my stay at Casa Vehla apartment and hope this review helps others to also.

Room tip: All rooms are quite and have a view of the barren landscape as far as I'm aware.

I stayed in Casa Velha for a week and I have loved it. The place is located very close to the beach of Estoril and its at the beginning to Sal Rei.
You can walk to Sal Rei within minutes and at night time its very quiet and relaxing.

My apartment had a very strong smell of mould but it wasn't a major problem asI spent a lot of time out etc. Also, the fridge was a bit too noisy at night time.

A part from these 2 issues that place is perfect.

This is a great place to stay - apartments rather than hotel - though you can get breakfast. Most of the apartments (but not all) have really nice verandas and are spacious and comfortable. It is built in a similar style to a Moroccan Riad with an open central courtyard the rooms open onto. There's a roof terrace too. It is in a good location, close to a good beach and the town. Biggest problem is poor wifi - it sort of works but you have to to stand in a corner to get any signal at all and it really shouldn't be too difficult to at least have it work in the sitting areas (if not the apartments. Other than that - very good
