Great base for exploring Sao Vincente
Fab hotel which blends a beach cabin vibe with Scandi style. The team, particularly Stephen, were very helpful. Right next to a great beach - beautiful but the waves are too strong for yourlng children.

Close to the airport and comfortable
The hotel is literally a stone throw from the beach. It met the expectations from the photos, and reviews which was great. The room to my experience had everything I needed. The Wi-Fi from the ground floor will not reach the 2nd floor unless you are outside on the balcony, but for me, this was perfect! No wi-fi signals (except CV mobile Telecom), sea-fresh air, and generally very quiet atmosphere. If you require amenities like an iron to press creased luggage clothes, they can supply one for you. Most staff are bi-lingual with Portuguese and English, and are very friendly and welcoming to get on with. They can provide sound recommendations of the sights to see on the island, in addition to calling taxi services for you to wherever you wish to go. The intermittent sounds are school children playing in the daytime, aircraft landing and taking-off once or twice an hour which is a far and distant noise not to worry about. I was fortunate enough to experience the 'I love Sao Pedro' community party (mid-September) where the town all come together, and have an enjoyable time from Friday-Sunday afternoon. If you like music like I do of a younger crowd, you will enjoy the moment right through until 5am! The hotel is only 3-years-old, and definitely has the potential in this area to become more popular than it is. I would say in my opinion that it is suited far more to single travellers like myself, and couples.

4/10 Fair

The hotel is situated close to the beach, but it doesn’t offer a view to it , no Terrasse, no sun beds or umbrellas. The restaurant of the hotel was closed, the restaurant nex door as well. We even couldn’t get a biscuit with our coffee in the afternoon. At night the room was really hot and loud because there were many dogs barking in the neighborhood . The room was small, basic but stylish .

This place is amazing!
The hotel itself is wonderful. I loved the simplicity of this building and everything felt very clean and open. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a simple fruit, yoghurt, eggs and coffee affair but freshly made by the lovely staff with local ingredients. Fantastic! There was only one thing that caught me off guard with this place, and that was the little town where the hotel is situated, Sao Pedro. The town is very basic with many buildings in somewhat dilapidated condition. This is probably just a reflection of the simple way of life in this small fishing village and my first impressions are probably more a reflection of my rather sheltered travels in recent years. The town seemed safe and the locals nice enough. Just be aware before you go that this is a simple town that has seen little wealth. To many people this could just be another draw card for staying in the wonderful Aquiles Eco Hotel. Other than that, the beach is breathtaking, the landscape is fascinating and the lighthouse built on the cliff at the end of the beach captures the imagination. Overall, I loved my stay here.

Quirky and Innovative
We booked the suite. This was on the top floor and had a large terrace with brilliant beach, mountain and sea views with lovely sunsets. The photographs and hotel description on the website do not fully prepare the visitor for this very unusual hotel where all the rooms are basically very well equipped wooden sheds. We loved ours but were aware that other rooms were smaller and did not have the benefit of a large sea-facing terrace. I would advise travellers to book the suite - or the 'penthouse shed' as we came to call it.
