“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 13 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Stayed here for a week and it couldn't have been better! The host, Ayanna, was so welcoming and helpful and nothing was a problem! The apartment is in a fantastic location right on the beach and within easy walking distance of the main town square. There are lots of restaurants and cafes close by to choose from and the nearby beach clubs were great! Nice atmosphere in the town and plenty of sunshine :)

This is a prefect 5 STAR Rating for Polvo's proximity to the Estoril Beach and Sal Rei City, and its No-STRESS ambience. It is exactly what we were looking for to recharge the batteries. Ayanna, the owner and manager is absolutely welcoming and we felt at home from the first minute. I was going to wait until I ended my stay to write a review, but why wait??? You are going to love this place because you will have all your amenities, privacy, excellent choices of restaurants, and beach rentals walking distance away, etc...

Remember that you chose Boa Vista to get away from the herd. Then why would you go anywhere else like an inclusive and restricted resort to be fed poor food and be herded like sheep? Instead come to any of Polvo's sister apartments, relax and Do it You Way. and you will not regret it.

Just to give you an example, on our first night, we walked 10 minutes without any plans in Sal Rei, ate a great Pizza, played a night time game of beach Soccer (football) near Front Beach or Praia de Frente. On the walk back we were greated by a DJ'ed party in the main square or Praça de Sal Rei, where our 10 year old son played tag or apanhada with other local children. THIS WAS 100% unscripted. Of course you can chose a private tour, and with Ayanna's help, we are going to watch SeaTurtles and tour the island on guided tours.

Also, check out their other family-owned and operated property less than a block away named Orquidea Guest House, which is a stunning Miami Beach styled Mansion lush with vegetation and a pair of cockatoos.

Happy Journey to Boa Vista, Cabo Verde
