Without a doubt, the Hotel Morabeza is one of the best hotels in Cape Verde.

The Hotel is perfectly situated, just a few steps from the expansive white sands of Santa Maria Beach and a short stroll to reach the cobbled streets of the town, giving you easy access to a variety of local cafes and restaurants.

Morabeza has been run by the same family for three generations and has become known as one of  Cape Verde’s most desirable hotels. With 140 rooms, it’s one of Sal’s larger establishments but still retains its local identity and charm, with its sunny aspect, little arched entranceways, poolside loungers and beautiful beach views. The word morabeza is Portuguese for hospitality and they certainly live up to their name, with multilingual management and local staff  who are always on hand to help.

The Hotel is elegant and has excellent facilities, including three fresh water swimming pools, spacious relaxation areas, two tennis courts, volleyball, archery, mini-golf and petanque. There is a games room with two snooker tables, table tennis, darts and board games and they also offer two free yoga classes every week.

The en-suite rooms (with shower or bath) all have a veranda with either a sea or garden view. All rooms have  satellite TV, air conditioning, minibar, safe, telephone, hairdryer and Wi-Fi connection. Cots are available on request. There are a variety of rooms, apartments and suits available at the hotel, so you can choose your level of luxury and price.

As well as the recommended restaurants, which serve both Cape Verdean and international dishes, the hotel has three bars, with the first-floor Tortue being a popular venue for an evening cocktail.
