I loved staying with Serge and Catherine, they are such lovely people and they did really help me a lot, both with practicalities as ordering taxis when needed, but also important advice on how to stay safe as a lone traveller in Praia. There was a power cut in Praia on the same morning that I was leaving and my flight was cancelled at the same time, Serge even lent me his internet so that I could buy a new ticket. The rooms are really nice and it really felt like it is important for Serge and Catherine that I was enjoying myself. Oh and the breakfast is fantastic. I can't recommend this place enough!

OK place for a short stay in Praia. Very friendly and helpful owners. If needed, they can arrange a taxi for driving one day around Santiago island, ideal option if you have to wait for your flight back home. The hotel itself is in one of the more quiet areas of the town, but still within reach of the centre.

This lovely place makes you feel very welcome! The rooms are simple, but clean and spacious. Breakfast is being served by the lovely Reinhilda in the nice patio with banana trees. On the roof is also a very nice terrace with relax beds; one can soak up some sun up there! Both hosts, Serge and Catherine, are very nice persons. They speak French, English, Portuguese and Creole. They will help you with all your questions and have plenty of nice travel advice. Everything is done to make you feel at ease! This B&B is situated at the edge of a neighboorhood with embassies and restaurants. There are plenty of nice places to eat, but you have to plan ahead where to go. Otherswise you won't find them. Take advice from your hosts on where to go and where to stay away. The atmosphere is very vibrant: you will hear people practising their drums every evening! We liked the lovely landscape of Praia and surroundings. Nevertheless we were not impressed with the city center (Plateau). Rather exlore the rest of the island: beautiful nature and very nice people!

This is a very friendly hotel with excellent breakfasts. The owners are welcoming and helpful in finding your way around. The area is not spectacular but security in the hotel is good and we had no concerns about walking in the area. Local barbecue restaurants are only 100 metres from the hotel and serve great fish and meats.

The Owners, Serge and Catherine, are very friendly and supportive. They explained everything in and around the house, Praia, and even gave recommendations for stays in other parts of the islands. The rooms are nice, clean, and the breakfast is simply delicious. You can walk to the beaches, some nice restaurants are around the corner. If we return to Praia, O Jardim Do Vinho would be the first choice.
