We have just left this resort for a hotel in town. The flies are unbearable. This is not a minor problem. You cannot open the patio doors without filling your room with flies. You cannot sit by the pool, sit in the snack bar where there is good wifi or enjoy the restaurant, where the haven't opened the doors or...

I stayed last week at the hotel, for 6 days. When arriving they gave us a small room without terrace, and there was a wall facing the window. As it was late at night, we slept there, but next morning we went to reception to complain, as those were not the hotel pictures I had seen on booking.com. After talking...

Hotel is very convenient from the airport. It is just the right distance from Mindelo town centre to avoid being bothered on the beach. Rooms are well cleaned and reception staff helpful and friendly. Grounds well maintained. Waiting staff could have been friendlier. You felt you were more of a nuisance than customer.

Did not stay here, but ate at the restaurant after spending some time on the beach. Service was good and food was tasty. Staff was really friendly when we asked if we could leave our suitcases with their reception for a few hours before heading to the airport.

Large hotel situated next to a beautiful beach however the beach isn't suitable for swimming and is always empty. The hotel (in August) is generally very quiet apart from day visitors who come to use the pool and bar. The rooms are practical and clean. Wifi is available for free however can only connect around the pools and main area,...

Stayed here in May. This resort hotel is in an ideal location, right on the beach. It is close to the airport and within walking distance of Sao Pedro village which has two small shops and a bar. Were in room 104, on the ground floor. The room was light and airy, a reasonable amount of storage space provided and...

Glorious location right on the beach at Sao Pedro on Sao Vicente, only 5 minutes from Cesaria Evora airport. You can see the resort below you on the final approach to the airport. It's hard to classify and review this hotel, as in many ways it is great, and in others not so... Rooms - we had a double with...

The Foya Branca is in a good but remote location on a beautiful long sandy beach. Staff were generally very pleasant and helpful. Food was very good and I liked the range available; although as I am not used to staying in all-inclusives I cannot compare this very well. There are a range of rooms available, some better than others....

“Other reviewers have mentioned poor soundproofing in their rooms. Ask for a top floor room when you check in. Tip for gay couples- you will automatically be allocated a twin room even if you've booked through an agent. If you ask they'll put the beds together (as all doubles are) - it's not a problem, it's just not on their radar.”
