Excellent little guesthouse right on the shore of a beautiful beach. Rooms opening onto a lovely courtyard with palms and greenery. Good breakfast with homemade yoghurt and cheese. The hosts,a jovial Belgian (Garry?) and warm and friendly Cape Verdean (after whom the guesthouse named) made us most welcome. Walk left along the beach is just blissful. Lots of pure white...

We spent a week in the top floor room, which was clean, spacious and had a very nice terrace with 180 degree view over the bay. The guest house is well placed, just a stones throw from the beach and a few minutes walk along the sand to the centre of town. There were two hammocks on the balcony and...

A really nice guest house near the centre of Sal Rei and right on the beach. Excellent and spotlessly clean rooms with bigger than usual bathrooms. Mosquito screens are installed in the window openings. Wonderful sea view from (most of) the rooms. Very helpful owners with a small travel info center on their premises. Good price-quality ratio. Simple but good...

We spent a week on Boa Vista, Orquidea Guest House. We had booked the penthouse. The room was nicely decorated and had everything we needed: bed, bathroom, closet, fridge, private balcony with two hammocks, ocean view. It was paradise! A perfect place to relax for a week. Personnel was kind, breakfast in the courtyard was a treat. The guesthouse is...

We spent a wonderful week staying as this gentle, relaxed, family-run guest house. Breakfast in the shady courtyard was a daily treat as was the hammock on our spacious verandah. We really felt we were staying in exactly the right place in order to experience Boa Vista for real and the guesthouse is ideally located next to beach and on...

We had a lovely 10-days stay at this hospitable guesthouse. Situated on a perfect location just outside the city along the beach of the Sal Rei bay. We had the top room which is well equipped and has a beautiful view on the bay with the small island in the middle. A good breakfast is served in the botanical garden...

Stayed for a week in March 2014. Fantastic location right on the beach and very convenient for the town of Sal Rei. Surroundings were a bit scuffy but that's Sal Rei not the hotel! We had a room with a huge terrace and a fantastic 180 degree view of the beach and sea beyond. Terrace has a table, two chairs,...

I can honestly echo everything good which has been said about Orquidea Guest House. It is well situated, spotlessly clean and comfortable. We had a spacious room with balcony and hammock, lovely breakfast, friendly staff.

Orquidea is a guest house conveniently located between the beach and the major plaza of Sal Rei, both of them are reachable in a 5 min walk. Nice and spacious rooms, equipped with A/C and fan. Nice balcony, where you can lie on a comfortable Amaca. The breakfast is good. Friendly staff includes two wonderful parrots, some tortugasa and a...
