Bring own toiletries!

The day before our arrival to Santa Maria i got an email saying that due to some problems with one of the rooms and we were moved to Leme Bedje hotel which is 5-6 min from Porto Antigo. Fine. We understood that. When we arrived at the hotel there was only 1 soap in the bathroom (2 people, 5 days!!!) And i asked for shampoo and shower gel and i was told that they only give in the 1st day and made an exception. Then i find in the bathroom 2 more soaps... at that stage i just gave up to explain what i wanted. If you want people to bring own toiletries (i would had not minded to bring own) that is ok. Just don't call 1 soap for 5 days for 2 people as "free toiletries"..

Large room, great pool and direct beach access.

Great room with a large fridge-freezer which we did use for storing and chilling drinks and fruit, and a hob and over which we didn't use. One substantial downside was a horribly uncomfortable mattress with very obvious and noticeable springs. As well as being uncomfortable the mattress also made a loud noise whenever we moved positions. This would have been a five star review if the mattress had been OK but the problem was significant hence the downgrading. Lovely grounds with a great pool and lots of sun loungers so it was never a battle to get one. Also some shady areas which we made great use of as it was very hot and sunny. Direct beach access.

Pros: Location, close to lots of restaurants and bars, direct beach access, lovely grounds with great pool, lots of sun loungers, space in the room.

Cons: The mattress, which was horrible!

Location: Beach, bars, very central

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

Condition of the room we stayed was not good. The door was too complicated to open, no AC in a bedroom, TV was very small and old, with few local channels. We booked it for three nights but decided to leave the next day. They said they can't pay us back any money. Overall a terrible service - won't come back here .

3.0 out of 5 Okay

    Die Lage ist gut, Personal ist freundlich. Man sollte alles mit CaboVerde-Spirit entspannt annehmen und keine zu hohe Erwartungen pflegen.
