Cons: If i may suggest: Improvement could be made with a less noisy ventilator. And it would be nice if staff spoke some more French or English :-).

Pros: It can all be said in just one word: Paradice. Tortuga is really a pearl. Hard to believe that such a place exist So beautiful placed 'in the middle of nowhere' directly on the beach by ...

Cons: No wifi in the rooms, had to sit in certain area of outdoor lounge to use it. The massage was kind of relaxing, but didn't seem very professional, used too much oil. The fact that we couldn't ...

Cons: a side lamp would have been useful. Wifi and breakfast would have helped
Pros: Location was the only good thing, and though it was expensive by Cape Verde standards, it was cheap compared to other hotels in Sao Felipe.
Cons: Main problem was that staff simply didn't care - it was run to make money and they didn't care if you got there (and check in is some way off), if the toilet paper ran out, if people couldn&#...
Pros: Good shared space at the hostel. Warm shower. Restaurant nearby for breakfast was also catered for locals and was good.

Pros: From the time we met Mr. Vincent, the charming Danish/Cape Verdean owner, for check-in through our departure from Fogo Island, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My wife and I were on a brief ...
