Our Guest's Opinion
- Mr Raybould
It’s well worth upgrading to the Sea View Villas. You won’t regret waking up and opening the doors to the view every morning.
- Not suited to anyone with walking difficulties, as some of the steps around the grounds are fairly steep and uneven.
Boasting a blissful hillside setting, and almost blending into the ocean over which it towers, you’ll struggle to find a more paradisiacal location on the island of Boa Vista. By day, wander the bougainvillea-filled grounds to the large pool, which offers the perfect place to soak up the African sunshine, or for beach lovers, there’s plenty of space on the soft sand to lay down your beach towel or relax on a sunlounger.
The bedrooms are scattered on the small hillside, and enjoy a good range of facilities, including air-conditioning, a television, safe and minibar, the latter two payable locally. Guests also have the option of upgrading their room, opting for a sea view.
An impressive viewing pier jutting out towards the ocean is arguably this hotel’s most alluring feature, where you could choose to enjoy your current read, or plan your next adventure, all whilst watching the warming orange and pink hues of the sunset. Meals are taken in the main buffet restaurant or at the poolside restaurant Rochino, and as well as opting for half board, there is a full board and soft drinks option available at a supplement for those who prefer to dine in-house.
Beyond the stunning views and undeniable lure of the pool, guests can enjoy a selection of beauty treatments, a daily activity programme and plenty of evening entertainment. If you can tear yourself away from all of this, take a short taxi ride into Boa Vista’s capital, Sal Rei, where there’s a handful of shops, restaurants and bars to discover, or explore some of the island on a bicycle, which you can hire from the hotel.

Unspoilt expanses of beach and sea Boa Vista is home to some of the most dazzling beaches on the archipelago covering a staggering 55km. Closest to the African mainland, Boa Vista is not only renowned for its stunning beaches but its marine life too. Nightlife here is very low key and quiet with just a scattering of local restaurants and bars.
Boa Vista is quite literally covered in sand and many buildings have been completely absorbed leaving an endless blanket of sand. A great example of this is on Praia da Chaves, an old ceramic factory covered in sand is still intact with machines in situ! Sahara like dunes in the interior of the island with sprouting date palms are an impressive sight and well worth a visit.
Depending on the time of year you may even spot some turtles on the islands southern beaches. Boa Vista is thought to be third most important loggerhead nesting site in the world, with the favoured time of year for turtles to nest usually being during the months of June through to September.
The miles of unspoilt coast line are excellent for you to enjoy uninterrupted walks as well as being a popular location for windsurfing enthusiasts. Other water sports are available in addition to quad biking tours and line and deep-sea fishing.
The island of Boa Vista is also home to some of the most spectacular beaches in the archipelago with a dazzling 55km stretch of white powdery sands. The most spectacular is Praia de Chaves, where the sand dunes have been sculpted by the winds into some amazing arcs.
There are a few festivals on the island. Plans change from year to year but normally there is the common music festival that takes place in Santa Cruz in August. The other main colourful festival is:
Santa Isabel (Municipality Day) 4 July - the day of Santa Isabel, the patron saint of the island. Celebrated with processions, swimming, horse racing, tours and a public ball.
