Exceptional 10.0
Nice place! Loved My Cottage!
It exceeded my expectations... The cottages are lovely and cozy and clean! I wish I had a hammock with me! The beach Praia Cafe which is a walk from the main hotel beach area was breathtaking and empty! The staff is very friendly. English speakers are maybe 1-2 person and they are still limited. Oddly enough, WiFi was more consistent than mainland. Pay ahead of time for your hotel stay so you don’t have to worry about a large payment. WiFi for credit cards was not working when I checked out but they used the sister hotel Pestano SaoTome to process payment. Dobra or Euro only used for small souvenirs. Bottled water is not included with meals. Overall, excellent experience. I would return!

single reservation despite double booking
In their system they saw my double booking through as a single booking through Expedia !!! It took me time convincing them that I was right. Nobody speaks English. All inclusive booking with three meals, but they make you pay 3,5 EUR for drinking water at lunch and dinner. Ridiculous. Never again

Good 6.0
Uma ou duas noites é o ideal
O hotel tem praias lindíssimas ao seu redor e permite um acesso fácil ao marco do equador. Passar lá uma noite, ou no máximo duas e o ideal. Necessita de um refresh ao nível da decoração e de uma maior investimento na manutenção. O preço da travessia obrigatória, de barco, no próprio barco do hotel deveria estar incluída no preço da estadia. Ter de pagar cerca de 16,5€ por pessoa sem contar, não é de todo muito agradável...

Obrigatorio para quem quer ficar no ilheu, é o unico hotel que la existe. Espaço agradavel, quartos grandes, as refeições estão incluidas na estadia o que faz com que não seja tão caro quanto parece, no entanto as bebidas são à parte e estão a um preço ( a meu ver) exagerado para a realidade
