I stayed in Casa Velha for a week and I have loved it. The place is located very close to the beach of Estoril and its at the beginning to Sal Rei. You can walk to Sal Rei within minutes and at night time its very quiet and relaxing. My apartment had a very strong smell of mould but it... More

This is a great place to stay - apartments rather than hotel - though you can get breakfast. Most of the apartments (but not all) have really nice verandas and are spacious and comfortable. It is built in a similar style to a Moroccan Riad with an open central courtyard the rooms open onto. There's a roof terrace too. It... More

Recently returned from a magical two weeks in this wonderful place. Having previously visited Cape Verde and staying at one of the RIU all inclusive monoliths, this was a polar opposite experience and in our opinion much better. Cape Verde could develop fast as a tourist destination as holidaymakers seeking winter sun (there's plenty of it there) look for alternatives... More

Considering the price we paid (100 euros a night) we were very disappointed to be in a room which had no outside windows (bottom floor on the back of the property). The room was very hot and no possibility to open windows to get some ventilation. There was no ventilation fan or airco either, so we didn't sleep much. The... More

Beautiful building, this a retro hotel very near the beach, with lovely and helpful staff (they made us a take-away lunch because we didn't have time to go shopping before our boat trip and they found someone to take us snorkelling). The rooms are basic but have everything you need.

Casa Velha is a great place to spend your holiday in Boa Vista. We were in the penthouse apartment, which has a great roof terrace with sea-view. The accommodation is clean, well designed and the manager (Michela) organized trips and gave tips for good restaurants. All staff is very friendly, though some hardly speak English. Breakfast consists of dairy and... More

Casa Velha is a stunning place. Everything is at its right place. The best part: the beautiful peaceful interior patio, perfect to read a book, drink a coffee and hang out with birds.
