We didn’t stay here but we ate here several times during our stay. The food was consistently average and the staff was helpful. This is a good place to eat if you are on a budget. The place is packed on game nights, especially when Benfica plays.

I had a chance to stay there for two different nights on my trip to Sal. The hotel provides shuttle service from the airport to hotel, which will save you some money if taking taxi. The room is not that big but you got everything you need. If your room is along the street side you may hear the power...

great for stay travelling to or from Praia. Staying in Praia you might like to stay more central. Since my last stay all things are better. Restaurant in same building is a plus, so is free wi-fi.

I actually prefer residences to the big hotels (like Tropico). The rooms are adequate, and there is free wi-fi (unlike at Tropico, which charges 200 escudos an hour for substandard wi-fi). The restaurant attached to Benfica is outside, casual, but has great grilled seafood. My only gripe is that it's a little further than the other hotels- about a mile...

The accomadacions are not that bad. But not so clean. In all my stay there, never did they change the sits and totles. They have a restaurante, it's good, but not cheap. They also have problems with the room water (hot). It's all I can say, see for your self, or better don't see!
