My sister and I run a business and chose to return to Cape Verde during COViD to work and relax. During our 7 day stay, The Pestana Tropico staff went over and beyond to accommodate us. We had great WiFi and a clean, cool and perfect room with balcony workspace. The easy access to the pool, via a little staircase, made our morning swims and yoga easy, as well as making our workdays pleasant with such a view. The spaced out tables in the restaurant made us feel comfortable with all the COVID protocols too. The pool got more full as the day progressed with the easy going local Cape Verdeans and their gorgeous, kinda quiet playful kids. The convenient Hertz rental car desk located in the lobby made doing day trips to local beaches, monuments and other cities like Tarafal very easy. The GM Gonçalo Ferro offered great advice about places to shop, safe places to eat and even helped us to figure out the best islands to visit close to Santiago where we could do a long weekend getaway. We were super happy to find Isiah still working and treating guests with fantastic hospitality. Even with a paired down staff due to COVID, we felt perfectly accommodated. The food in the bar and restaurant were fresh and delicious. Looking forward to returning again and again.

Good hotel to stay in Praia, it’s a really good option with a really competitive price. I also enjoyed the attention provided by the workers of the hotel, especially in the reception and the recommendations that they made in order to have a good time and experience in Praia!

Staff very friendly and accommodating, room clean, not elegant but very nice. Had a great stay and recommend. Good food at bar and nice pool too. Staff spoke English well. Ocean view room was not very spectacular--more restful and tranquil to view patio.

I stayed 2 nights in Pestana Tropico and absolutely adored the quietness of the resort. It's an oasis of peace and located close to some of the best restaurants in town. Staff was ADORABLE and I loved that they were pet-friendly! If in Praia, will definitely go back.

My sister and I stayed for two nights on either end of a week on another island, Boa Vista. We arrived in the early hours of the morning, were picked up by the hotel shuttle, and met at reception by Isaiah, a smartly dressed and super helpful young man with impeccable English. He gave us the name of a local guide and driver to help accommodate our day trip around Santiago. Later in the day, we even met the General Manager, Gonçalo Ferro, who gave us suggestions for not-to-miss places like the Quintal da Musica and a few other live music spots. We had an early flight the next morning and management accommodated us to have an early breakfast, which was a huge spread and so delicious. They make the best bread I’ve ever had in my life and it’s made in-house! The GM Gonçalo also suggested we book a day trip for our return at the end of the week. The rooms were super clean, comfortable bedding, great air conditioning and nice showers. The poolside was nice for lounging and yoga. The pool was clean though a little short for laps. On our return the hotel arranged for early check-in, helped arrange the trip to Tarafal in the north of the island and made sure we had a wake up call and shuttle for our 3am flight. From the bellhops to reception to the restaurant, all the way up to the GM, all of the staff were polite, helpful and really exuded the ‘No Stress’ tag line of Cape Verde. Can’t wait to go back!
