Oasis Porto Grande is a comfortable hotel next to the central square of vibrant Mindelo, one of the most important cultural centres of Cape Verde.
Our Guest’s Opinion
- Mrs Nicholls
You couldn’t be better located - situated in the central square of Mindelo.
It’s a win-win whatever room you choose; either overlook the bustling square or face towards the pool.
A recently refurbished and fantastically located hotel right in the heart of Mindelo, São Vicente’s vibrant cultural capital, a stay at Oasis Porto Grande will provide complete comfort and convenience. The hotel’s bedrooms, all of which are refurbished, are set across two floors and enjoy attractive views, while the public areas also benefit from a recent upgrade. Evenings can be spent recharging in the lobby bar and listening to live music, or enjoying a drink on the terrace overlooking the atmospheric square. The hotel’s à la carte restaurant offers a mix of international and local traditional food.
During the day, you can relax around the inviting pool, or take an easy 15-minute stroll to Laginha Beach, where white sands and calm, turquoise water await, along with impressive views of Santa Antão, its magnificent silhouette in the distance. Or alternatively, you can simply make use of the great location by heading out to explore the shops, markets, eateries and architecture of marvellous Mindelo.
Another particularly rewarding experience of staying at Porto Grande is that being in the centre of Mindelo, there are ample cafes, bars and restaurants which offer live music most evenings, which will not disappoint.
