We stayed for 8 nights in February. The lodge is absolutely beautiful and sited in a remote location which is approached across a wild unspoilt desert landscape. The rooms are perfectly luxurious and the staff without exception charming, professional and go out of their way to be kind and helpful. The owner is very personally involved and is always around...

This place was a true find of peace and tranquility; where nothing was too much for the owner, Larissa and her staff. We were welcomed to her home, and it did feel like being home. It really is a place to escape to hear one's own breathing and recharge one's battery. This ecolodge does all it can to respect its...

Remote and beautifully decorated with items the owners have found washed up on the beaches. The hotel runs on solar and wind power. The food is gorgeous (though a bit expensive). The hotel beach has individual 'cabins' to give shade, which is much needed, hammocks and sofas. You feel like you are completely alone in the world. One of the...

This is a remote hidden gem. Only for lovers of remote places, who love the sea, the calm, excellent and healthy italian food & the people of Boa Vista. It is absolutely not a standard hotel. You need to be a bit adventurous. Having a car to discover the surroundings makes your stay unforgettable. On top of that, the owner...

My wife and I stayed at the hotel during our trip to Cape Verde in March 2015. We spent a total of 3 nights there and would be reluctant in recommending it to anyone looking for a hotel on Boavista. The hotel was very clean and we found the rooms to be well equipped. We stayed in a great room...

Spinguera is everything you would imagine it to be from the pictures and the reviews... And then some! The hotel and the decor are incredibly beautiful, there is wonderful local staff, the meals are great, etc. You really can't fault anything, as long as you keep in mind that isn't a 5 star resort (but something much more charming!).

We stayed seven nights including Christmas (2014). Transfers were kindly organized by Larissa, owner of the site. She and her team take great care of guests, in a friendly, unfussy way. The location is remote, making it a very peaceful and relaxing place to spend time. On three days, we walked to the nearby beach (a steady 30-minute walk), and...
