The word morabeza is Portuguese for hospitality and this is a hotel that lives up to its name. Elegant and with excellent facilities and direct access to the beach, the Morabeza has evolved through its ownership by three generations of the same family, to become one of Cape Verde’s most desirable hotels.
With 140 rooms it’s one of Sal’s larger establishments, but it retains a personal feel with attentive, multilingual management and long-serving staff. Inside the hotel, you’re welcomed by a spacious and tasteful reception featuring colourful local artworks.

As well as the recommended restaurants, which serve both Cape Verdean and international dishes, the hotel has three bars, with the first-floor Tortue a popular venue for an evening cocktail.
The facilities are comprehensive, with spacious relaxation areas, three swimming pools, a games room, two tennis courts, archery, mini-golf and petanque. Yoga classes can also be arranged and there is children’s entertainment.
Capping this all off is the Hotel Morabeza’s ideal location. Leave in one direction and you’re in town for cafes and restaurants, the other and you’re on the famous and fabulous Santa Maria beach.
