Quirky beach chalet on a stunning beach!
This beach is amazing, truly stunning so who cares about the accommodation?! Actually though a little dated, which was actually characterful, I really enjoyed our stay here. Michela, who looks after the place was wonderful and exceptionally helpful. The 2 bedroomed place we stayed was definitely on the quirky side but was right on the beach, had comfortable beds, good showers a well equipped kitchen (though the 2 ring electric hob got a little getting use to). There was good storage too. The patio area was great with comfortable seating and sun loungers. The wifi isn't so good here, but it was great to have the kids off it and I didn't care - if you need better wifi you can sit on the patio outside the office, that's pretty good. There isn't a supermarket near by so bring supplies or organise a taxi to take you into Sal Rei to the main places. Boa Vista is practically a desert, so don't expect the place to be over flowing with fresh goods (though the fish is abundant), however we cooked quite a few evenings & most breakfasts without issue, just a little creativity! Michela can also organise for a local lady to cook local food to be eaten at home, she is also a great source of info on where to go for live music and the local town Rabil, is a great little place with a small shop. This was an excellent base for time on this wonderful beach and to top it off the best ever beachside restaurant is just around the corner past the small dune!!! Exceptional!

Close to beach but very minimal
It's a nice and clean room and the staff are very helpful and nice. It's also right on the beach which is obviously great. However, since there's no shop or place to buy anything nearby, except for one restaurant that stops serving food at 4/5pm, the rooms could have a bit more in terms of food preparation material/surfaces. It's basic but comfortable, but in a place where you need to eat out every meal, it could provide something for you to make your own food

Wir hatten ein Sehr schönes strand nahes Haus, allerdings haben wir ein Haus direkt am Strand gebucht was leider nicht den angaben entsprechend so war.. Das Wlan ging so gut wie gar nicht.. Obwohl die Putzfrau wusste dass wir 3 Personen sind hatten wir manchmal nur ein Handtuch bekommen manchmal wurden sogar alle mit genommen aber kein einzig neues hingelegt. Der Strand vorm Haus ist eher nicht zum schwimmen geeignet deshalb ein tipp- zum Hotelstrand neben an ;) im großen und ganzen hatten wir einen tollen Aufenthalt!

Calm and private
The manager is very nice and it’s easy to get transfer to and from the apartment/hotel. Nice breakfast for a fair price, order it because there is nothing around where you can buy stuff. Would be nice to have wi-fi at the room but there is on the area but works so and so, like wi-fi does on the island. AC and clean sheets every day, and the location on the beach is fantastic.

bella struttura, sono organizzati bene
la struttura è bella, le stanze sono direttamente sulla spiaggia, il personale è bel organizzato, manca ancora un locale per il reception, ristorante, di proprietà, ma si appoggiano su un ristorante poco distante sulla spiaggia, che è d buona qualità, però un po' caro, per essere a capo verde. giudizio generale, è buono ci tornerei .
