Recently stayed here for two nights. A/C very poor and room small. I would give this hotel 2-3 stars being generous. Stayed in Cape Verde before and don’t expect much but when advertising a 4 star hotel is expect better. No mini bar either. AVOID!

Date of stay: October 2019

I gave high ratings only because of the service

The rooms were average for price charged

The showers had Low pressure and warm water took ages to arrive
The toilet door was heavy noisy and clunky
Housekeeping was spotty - we get 1 towel even though there’s 2 of us in the room and no refill of bath gel
Aircon was really hot even though we put at 18 degrees
Breakfast was the same for 3 days - mushrooms, baked beans, bacon etc

But the service was awesome
Friendly attentive and smiley all around
Rooftop pool was nice.
Good location next to the shopping mall and beach

My wife and I are celebrating 21 years of marriage. We are at the VIP Praia Hotel. Just finished breakfast and we had a wonderful one. There is no way someone could be critical of it, unless it is a setup! Omelet is made upon request. All kind of fruits (from the local bananas to pear, apples, grapes, papaya, pineapple, peach, kiwi, more than a dozen kind of fruit!!!)
The gorgeous view is second to none, the place is CLEAN, neat and modern. Let me put this way: I got a room for a friend that does missionary work here, for one night. After a few hours at the hotel, his request: "if you let me stay another night here, I will stay doing my work for another 2 years!" The place for sure is awesome, the best gym in the city with an ocean view, great perks like 50% discount on the local cinema, name it, VIP Praia Hotel has to offer and that made my wife and I, as well our 3 teenager children, very happy to be here and celebrate this especial date for us!!! Looking forward to come back...

Room tip: Almost all rooms have an Ocean View. If is possible, ask for the top floors which can provide even a greater view.

Absolutely terrible! If there was a way to give negative stars this place would earn them, where to start.....
- Breakfast starts at 0630, it is never ready and the selection is questionable. The food is old or from the night before and all of the liquids are warm. Use a refrigerator!
- Beds are more like box springs and not mattresses.
- Showers “open concept” is a huge fail! If someone opens the door to the room there you are showering in front of everyone.
- Customer service throughout the hotel is the worst I have ever experienced. Most just look at you and nod and tell you ok but nothing is ever taken care of and you have to follow up constantly until you get something close to what you ask for.
- Just because it’s close to “shopping” don’t take the bait! This means it’s much more loud at night. The small restaurants play music very loud until 10-11pm most nights so if you value quietness don’t come here.
Overall there is really no redeeming values to this hotel. Very much in the top 3 of most horrible hotels I have stayed in throughout my travels around the world.

Right by the shopping center, if you feel like roaming around, taxis are to be found readily, but if you feel like visiting the other side of the island, you might rent a car.
I was there for work, and the Hotel VIP Praia was just what I needed.
