We stayed at the Colonial for four nights and had a great experience. Friendly, helpful staff, excellent food and a good central location. We went on two excursions which were both better than we had imagined, and we were made to feel at home. We will be back!

It was very quiet when we went so we had a private pool! Fabulous, large, old rooms leading directly to the pool area. Bathrooms are not ensuite and that wasn't an issue. Friendly and helpful staff. Drinks and food were very expensive and the food menu is limited. Breakfast was excellent!

This hotel is more like a bed and breakfast type hotel, the room was a good size and it led to the balcony and pool area, plus we had a balcony on the front. The area was a good location walking around tends to be a little hilly. The food was good. There is the Imperial restaurant up from the...

staying here, is experiencing heritage in a splendid way. If you need some luxery, stay here! Some rooms are big and are with a beatiful bathroom, others are smaller and without bathroom. The swimmingpool is lovely, a bit small and filled with salt water, but in this way eco.

This is a charming and authentic property. I love the old style of this complex. If you need to just sit around and not be disturb, this is the place to go. Drinks are good. The owners are very lay back people. They must make good food on the grill. He owns a big grill in the court yard. I...

Friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. We went on island trip and volcano hiking and even got two days at sea catching a 50 kg tuna and a...

You get a very warm welcome on the nice terras in front of the hotel. This nice big terras combines the terras, bar, restaurant. A place where you can dream away with the nice music. In the rooms/hotel you immedialty feel yourself back in the early 20th century. The furniture and decoration of that time are well preserved. On the...

A warm welcome at arrival by a friendly hostess Helga. Together with the Colonial style build guest house, the spacy room a great restaurant, and a nice pool, I really could relax. Even when my flight back was cancelled the Guest House hostess took care of everything; new room, transport to and from the airport and good food. But above...

What an excellent place to stay for discovering Fogo island? To our great surprise, the hotel staff welcomed us already at the airport. In the room you feel set back to the colonial time. Tastefully decorated and furnished, high -ceiling rooms. Ours gave directly to the upstairs patio with a small pool away from the huzzel of the city. The...

We have really appreciated the professionalism of the people we met in this hotel, especially Helga, very helpful. Our room N°4 was in front of the swiming pool (bathroom was outside the room but bath robes are provided by the hotel), bed are big and very comfortable, and the hotel is well situated, quiet and peaceful. Thanks again for all....
