If you love the ocean, privacy, walking on desolate beaches, have kingfishers hunt on your porch, watch butterflies while you swim in a beautiful pool, be greeted by smiling staff, listen to waves while you doze off, explore a tropical jungle, go to a neighborhood plantation for lunch, witness dazzling colors of the sunset while waves lap, enjoy creative cuisine,...

Best place ever, not just the resort, but the whole island. It is a jewel in Atlantic and it's people are the most beautiful part of it! Simplicity joined with beauty and big hearts! A smile from these children is everything!

Great place for a quiet holidays. Lovely beach just out side the cabin, a lots of other "virgin" beaches around this place, to some of them you can easily kayaking instead of taking a boat. In the close vicinity there are nice spots to snorkeling. Food is great, this place is not cheap but believe me this "King Kong" Island...

The geographical center of the earth is a long way from anywhere, involving trans-Atlantic travel, chaotic one-building airports, and a trip through a Jurassic-park rainforest. I'm tempted to therefore tell you to stay away, to cravenly save it for those of us that know. But no. Bom Bom's location is as perfect as could be: lush greenery, two soft-sand beaches,...

Located on a secluded beach, this place has it all .... ambiance, comfort, service, and amenities galore. The island restaurant is the real gem along with generally friendly staff. For even more seclusion, try a cottage overlooking the ocean (not on the beach as you'll have people practically on your patio all day) .... you'll still have very easy access...

São Tomé and Principe offers a winter sun holiday unique to many other countries we have visited at this time of year. Yes it's a bit of a faff to get to via Lisbon (with TAP Portugal) but well worth the travelling time. It's the most Carribean like African country we have visited with its forest trimmed beaches, but warm,...

We went for a whole week and my only regret is that the price list is not amenable to longer stays. Accomodation is very good without being luxurious. Given the obvious supply constraints, the food was quite good, although it could do with more variety, as regards both foodstuffs and cooking - although it was better than similar experiences I...

A quiet resort very nicely situated, with 18 confortable bungalows facing the sea. Spectacular views, superb nearby beaches but few bathers, excellent food, friendly staff : a premium hide-away for one's holiday !

There was a warm welcome , attentive service and the chalet-like room was spacious, beautiful decorated and had all comfort which you expect in this category. The restaurant serves excellent, delicious and well prepared meals. You have always the choice between two dishes. There is a snack menu if you don't want to eat a three-course menu at lunch time....

Just had five days here with friends. Not easy to get to, most people have never heard of the place (including me a year ago). It is pretty gorgeous. The rooms are basically large huts (well built of concrete covered with wood), comfortable but basic. Those near the beach are best, and naturally more expensive. The restaurant is on the...
