When we arrived we were not please with our room and promptly the front office find another one that fits our preferences. The front office staff were extremely helpful and friendly always with a smile ( Neuza, Euclides, Andréia, Mariza among others) Zenilda from house keeping was an “angel” cleaning the room in which we stay and always available to bring us the pool towels that we asked. Last but not least staff from the restaurant. All of them very helpful trying to match our needs in special Celia and Adilson that makes top mojitos and bringing them to the pool with a smile. Without doubts a hotel to remember and to recommend

This is my second time at this hotel with a gap of 6 years between the two visits. It is a basic hotel that has not been upgraded in a number of years but it does the job. Great courtyard and Spanish architecture and good sea views from many rooms. Great water pressure and bath toiletries. Central location. However breakfast gets monotonous and overall for longer stays might not be ideal.

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.

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.
