  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Honestly, find somewhere else to stay. This hotel charged my card without my consent and/or knowledge and refused to refund the money. management has not been responding to my phone calls or emails. Hotel Da Luz's shady behavior, coupled with Cabo Verde airlines even shadier behavior made for an absolutely shitty experience.

Convenient and quiet location

The property is very clean and well staffed. It is quiet day and night yet only a short walk to the restaurants, beaches and souvenir shops of Santa Maria.

Average

Breakfast spread was really scanty. On my last morning we literally only had bread, egg, cheese. No bacon, no sausages, no cereal, no fresh juice, no yoghurt I couldn’t sit in my ground floor room balcony because water from the AC units in the top rooms was channeled to my balcony. Disgusting.

Lovely stay! Clean, modern, beautiful hotel. Lovely location, close to the beach and some great restaurants but out the way enough that you feel like one of the locals. Really happy friendly staff, from reception, kitchen to house keeping. Everyone says good morning and couldn’t help you enough! Towels were provided everyday, aircon worked beautifully, shower was lovely, beds really comfy. I can’t fault our stay if I tried. And I would definitely consider staying again!
