Brochure Guide


Imagine a place where the pace of life is even slower than a snails, if that's possible! Cape Verde is that kind of place. Whoever coined the phrase 'no stress' summed these islands up perfectly. A group of ten idylic, unspoilt islands off the west coast of Africa each one strikingly different in scenery from the other but where life is so laid back you might as well be horizontal. The beaches are pristine and endless and practically deserted, brilliant for working on that tan.

Extremely poor. Not suitable for any age group This resort has absolutely nothing to offer any age group. It has a lunar landscape & a similar population

Very quiet. We went for a rest and it fitted the bill, but would have been bored if we had booked for more than 1 week. Managed to see all there was to see in half a day!

Not much to see apart from lovely sandy beaches and sunshine. It is a place of relaxation that starts with the arrival airport which is friendly with a big notice of welcome. The people are so friendly and helpful.

There is not actually a resort in Boa Vista. The hotel is situated many miles away from anything and with the lack of roads you are best advised to go via a “Planned Trip”.

Isolated, nothing to do,nightlife very limited. 1 week is long enough not enough to do. The tours are limited and far too expensive. Felt we were being taken advantage of because no other competition.

Santa Maria review

"Location"

78%
of reviewers would recommend this
resort to a friend

Open quote

Reasonable walking distance from Riu in daytime but due to poor lighting and undeveloped areas between the Hotel and town, a taxi is probably the best option at night. Sea front developments very pleasant, with some nice hotels and bars. The recommendation to a friend would be confined to this. Others areas of variable quality, with some buildings poorly maintained. However, only seen in daytime, so cannot comment on any nightlife.

Boa Vista review

"Boa Vista itself"

79%

resort to a friend

Open quote

Only went on one trip to the Capital of Boa Vista, Sal Rei, I did not feel this was value for money and would suggest if anyone wanted to go, arrange a taxi for youself, but agree price before you leave and pay on return. The capital itself is small with little to see, I was looking for gifts for my grandchildren, but they were the same in every workshop/outlet and very overpriced. On the way back, the rep pointed out a supermarket, which stocked everything and said this is where they shop, it would have been nice to know whilst we had chance to visit said supermarket.

Very rugged and baron, we didn't see a blade of grass. Quite quaint seeing a new resort taking shape. Little tarmac roads, a lot of cobbled roads and then no road.

Two good trips, beach walk with rep, taking in Sal Rei and the 4x4 morning tour.

Boa Vista review

"Breath Taking Beach"

79%
of reviewers would recommend this
resort to a friend

Open quote

The beach is breath taking and you could walk undisturbed for miles, the sea was rough with the red flag flying most days, I love the sea but I didn't take the risk.

There was a constant cool breeze that is very deceiving as the sun was very strong so the need for a good sun lotion is very important

This area is relatively unspoiled so if you want to visit before the area gets over developed with hotels then do it soon
