Upon arriving, the lady at the reception was helpful by recommending where the main attractions were. The location was perhaps the most disappointing, as the surrounding building site was desolate and without a view of the beach from the communal terrace. At night there is very limited lighting to the apartment and the majority of employees speak only French or...

Building beautiful from the outside and from the inside, with the charm of colonial architecture, very tasteful decoration. Location is great: close to the beach with its nice beach cafés and close to the center with its restaurants. Next door: an excellent Italian bakery (the best croissants I have ever had! I recommend to have breakfast there - I don't...

The apartments are incredibly spacious and decorated in a very simplistic chic style that was lovely but in need of a little sprucing up. Peaceful location only a short walk to the beach and 10 minute walk out of town across a large piece of wasteland, not ideally suited to single travelers though as quite isolated and dark if going...

I stayed in Casa Velha for a week and I have loved it. The place is located very close to the beach of Estoril and its at the beginning to Sal Rei. You can walk to Sal Rei within minutes and at night time its very quiet and relaxing. My apartment had a very strong smell of mould but it...

This is a great place to stay - apartments rather than hotel - though you can get breakfast. Most of the apartments (but not all) have really nice verandas and are spacious and comfortable. It is built in a similar style to a Moroccan Riad with an open central courtyard the rooms open onto. There's a roof terrace too. It...

Recently returned from a magical two weeks in this wonderful place. Having previously visited Cape Verde and staying at one of the RIU all inclusive monoliths, this was a polar opposite experience and in our opinion much better. Cape Verde could develop fast as a tourist destination as holidaymakers seeking winter sun (there's plenty of it there) look for alternatives...

Considering the price we paid (100 euros a night) we were very disappointed to be in a room which had no outside windows (bottom floor on the back of the property). The room was very hot and no possibility to open windows to get some ventilation. There was no ventilation fan or airco either, so we didn't sleep much. The...

Beautiful building, this a retro hotel very near the beach, with lovely and helpful staff (they made us a take-away lunch because we didn't have time to go shopping before our boat trip and they found someone to take us snorkelling). The rooms are basic but have everything you need.
