The Hotel Oasis Atlantico Porto Grande sits elegantly on Mindelo’s main square, a few hundred metres from the seafront and five minutes’ walk to most of the principal restaurants, bars and nightspots. The town beach, known as Laginha, is a short, ten-minute stroll to the east.
This popular hotel offers a wide variety of services, not always available elsewhere in the archipelago. As well a swimming pool and children’s pool, there is a 24-hour reception, a gym, evening entertainment, laundry, room service, WiFi and currency exchange.
Porto Grande has 48 rooms and 2 Suites, each equipped with A/C, satellite TV, hairdryer, phone, minibar and room safe. Each room has a balcony with views of either the main square or the swimming pool. There is a limited number of connecting rooms and a baby crib or extra bed is available on request.
In the Pérola do Atlântico Restaurant, located next to the hotel terrace, you can sample the local cuisine or enjoy sophisticated Portuguese and international choices. Light meals and drinks are provided on the Syrius terrace (summer only). Live music is often played in the Lobby Bar, which occupies a terrace overlooking the square.
If you’re a night owl and like to boogie, then you could visit the recently renovated Syrius Disco within the hotel building and is open from Wednesday to Sunday.
Hotel Porto Grande is located in the heart of Mindelo, the islands capital.
This well-situated hotel overlooks the Praca Amilcar Cabral main square and is the ideal base for exploring the city, day trips and visits to the adjacent island of Santo Antão.
