Hi this hotel is not a 5 star and the pool tiles have so many missing causing you to cut yourself on the ones left, i ripped my shorts on them. Also we had a spring coming through the matress and a few other problems. Paid €22.50 for a lilo that you cant use in the hotel or sea as its too rough so if you have children that will go in the pool expect cut feet and hands! Pictures to show how bad it really is!

Booked Cape Verde with some thoughts around will there be enough to do, standard of service etc,

Wow, couldn’t have been more wrong, fantastic holiday from start to finish, fantastic, friendly service from staff who could not be more helpful.
Hotel is to a great standard, the photos on the internet do not do it justice as all the gardens are now mature and creat shaded walks around the site and to the beach.......the beach!....Caribbean standard at half the price! Even the beach sellers are friendly and do not hassle you and are happy to talk to you even if you don’t buy anything.
No complaints at all, yeh a couple of tiles missing from the pool......but really?.
This is a fantastic hotel and island and we will be returning without doubt, which is something we rarely do

Fantastic 10night holiday

To say this was a severe disappointment is an understatement.
Please see below.
Cracked mirror in 2 corners.
Light fitting hanging down at one end above the sink.
Plug jammed in right hand sink, has been cleaned but not repaired.
Mould around curtain in shower above bath.
Tiles dirty around sink, killed an insect and is still there after 4 days!
Light unit loose in toilet.
Floors have not been washed all week, spill marks still evident and on table on balcony.
Also a screw poking out on the wall in hallway outside room, should be securing the light.
Food options are very limited and no real variations day to day, chicken nuggets on an adult buffet on a Saturday night! TUI staff and flight crews use this hotel and must notice this!
Cleanliness poor.
Pool dangerous, tiles missing and injuries daily.
Value for money definitely not.
Very dated and in need of severe TLC.
Many have complained about these issues and more, book and go at your own risk.

This was a family holiday and we all loved this Hotel. The food was exceptional, the rooms and complex were clean, well maintained and tidy and the staff were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile.

If you're a hotel person and enjoy all inclusive resorts, you'd struggle in my opinion to fault this hotel. Outside the complex and bar the beach however, there is practically nothing. The island's capital is very limited, and whilst - again- the people are lovely - there is very little to do, few shops or places to drink and the centre is an aged but expanding building site.
