Without doubt the Hotel Morabeza is the one of the best private hotels in Cape Verde. The word ‘Morabeza’ is Portuguese for ‘hospitality’ and this is a hotel lives up to its name. Elegant and with excellent facilities, this establishment has evolved through three generations to become one of Cape Verde’s most desirable hotels.
Although its 140 rooms make it one of Sal’s larger establishments, the Morabeza retains a personal feel with an attentive, multilingual management and many long-serving staff. The hotel faces onto Santa Maria’s main beach, a hive of activity or a perfect place for relaxation – or even for dining, as one of the hotel’s three restaurants is actually on the beach. Inside the hotel, you’re welcomed by a spacious and tasteful reception, featuring colourful local artworks. Each of the excellent bedrooms has a veranda with either a sea or garden view.
As well as the recommended restaurants, which serve both Cape Verde and international dishes and offer child-friendly options, the hotel has three bars, with the first-floor Tortue being a popular venue for an evening cocktail. There is also regular evening entertainment featuring local dancers and musicians– a pleasant introduction to Cape Verdean culture.
By any standards, facilities are comprehensive, with spacious relaxation areas, three swimming-pools, a games room, two tennis courts, archery, mini-golf and petanque. Yoga classes are also arranged and in season, there is children’s entertainment.
The Hotel Morebeza has a wide range of accommodation options, all with ensuite bathrooms (with shower or bath), satellite TV, air conditioning, minibar, safe, telephone, hairdryer, WiFi connection. Cots are available on request.
Hotel Morabeza is located at Santa Maria beach on Sal - Cape Verde island's most famous beach.
Beach and water sports sums up Hotel Morabeza. The hotel is right on the beach and has it's own private beach bar and offers a wide range of water-based activities.
