We stayed here from 19 Oct to 29 Oct and really this hotel is good value for money. The staff are excellent and the rooms clean. We ate a couple of times at the bar and couldn’t fault the food and at the BBQ which was excellent value and very good. We had a hire car so we’re able to visit many places recommended by staff during our stay. Overall this is a decent hotel and as mentioned good value for money.

The exterior comepletely lets the hotel down, we almost asked the shuttle to keep driving when it stopped here.
Staff friendly but a funny smell of grease fills up the hotel corridors and rooms. Pool was clean and good sized just very cold which was too bad in the heat as it was quite refreshing.
No entertainment. There is a bbq twice a week but the man only wore an apron and wa sweating over the stove so we didn’t try the meats although we heard it was lovely.
Twenty minute walk downhill to the beach and restaurants which was a healthy option for us however would be a struggle for some people.
Needs work done but the holiday is what you make it :)

Hello!
Opinions are opinions, everyone is entitled one and it counts what it counts.
We appreciate feedback when it is constructive, not when it is criticism for criticism's sake!
All I can consider constructive is your comments on the outside, which are a bit vague. Perhaps you should know, before anything else, that this is a building composed by 13 fractions, which one of these 13 fractions is the hotel. Like any building of this kind, there are areas that belonge to the building, areas that belong to the private fraction owners and areas that belong to the hotel. It does not depend on us alone to change any communal, we cannot change privately own areas, all we can do is maintain and improve the areas that belong to the hotel.
It's easy to criticize when you do not know the reality and what exactly you are talking about. I will not dignify a response to the rest of the things I have read as I do not think they are worthy of a reply.

Hotel set in lovely gardens with a view of the sea.Staff in hotel very friendly could not be faulted.Food at snack bar Very good and better priced than in resort.No bars or facilities near hotel ,fifteen minutes walk downhill to supermarkets.Taxis back to hotel from Praia about five euros and worth it when hot.Hotel advertised as being in Lagos but it is a thirty minute ride away and buses are not very frequent.Rooms in hotel very clean,some with a sea view.Hotel website says all rooms have a terrace or balcony but there are two rooms which do not if booked if booked on some online sites.All in all a good budget hotel.

Lovely hotel/apartment complex. As others have said, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Place is really clean. Snack bar is just what you want. Pool and grounds are well maintained and cleaned almost every day.

Only downside is the distance from the town. I'm a fit 59 and its a 12 minute walk (downhill) into town for some shopping ( Spar supermarket is excellent and comes with my recommendation). Uphill, even early in the morning, is a hike and you are going the sweat ( and I'm saying that in October).

We were just here overnight. Pros: very large room, incredibly friendly staff, clean. Cons: long walk into Luz. Decent value for money but don’t stay here without a car! I imagine most visitors have one though.
