Boasting a fantastic location in the heart of Mindelo, the vibrant capital of São Vicente, Don Paco Hotel is a comfortable and convenient base for anyone heading to the island.
Enjoying a superb position just steps from the central square of Mindelo, the Don Paco Hotel is a city-style property that is an ideal choice for any visitor wishing to explore the archipelago’s capital of culture. Quality service and friendly staff are at the roots of Don Paco, and guests can expect a stay that’s full of smiles and assistance.
The hotel itself is contemporarily furnished with comfortable, stylish rooms and large suites. The hotel’s restaurant, Restaurant Toni Duarte, serves Cape Verdean and international cuisine with a menu of the day or à la carte, whilst the Castilian-style bar is ideal for a cocktail or two after a day exploring the local area or heading over to neighbouring Santo Antão (which we highly recommend).
Outside the doors of the hotel is Mindelo, home to a colonial history which can be encountered throughout the town, with its wide streets, cobbled squares and 19th-century architecture. Ensure you embrace and indulge in the vibrancy of the capital, whether through exploring a colourful local market or catching a live music performance, the choice is yours.
