WIFI available from the pool bar at a cost of €2 per day (or €10 per week) Linen and towels provided A cool bag, beach towels and picnicware are provided to allow you to enjoy dining al fresco at the beach TV/DVD Player with a selection of English DVD's, board games, books and magazines Welcome pack providing you with local information, recommendations, useful phone numbers etc.. THE COMPLEX Swimming Pool, Children's Pool, Sunbeds and Pool/Snack bar - Elcibar Cafe/Bar Mini-market, Gym and Beauty Salon 24 Hour Security Onsite Management Company Free Parking THE LOCATION A thirty second walk to beautiful Praia Cabral Walking distance to the island capital of Sal Rei which can be reached on foot during the day in around 10 minutes and in the evenings, by taxi costing 200 CVE (less than €2) A short taxi ride from the International airport at Rabil. This costs a fixed fee of €10 and there are always plenty of local aluguers (taxis) waiting outside the airport at all times. If however, you would prefer this pre-booked, then we will be more than happy to arrange on your behalf THE ISLAND Although still completely unspoilt, Boavista has developed dramatically since our first visit in 2008 when there were no direct flights from Europe. The international airport has since been improved and there are now twice weekly direct flights from 3 UK airports, taking less than six hours. Various other airlines also operate direct flights from Italy, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands. Despite the current economic climate, growth on the island continues, with better infrastructure and more facilities being opened in the nearby area. We were quite excited to discover on our last visit that there are now even some roads!!! Around the island, there are lots of traditional villages; diverse landscape; deserts and stunningly beautiful beaches to explore. For the more adventurous, hire a quad bike, scooter or 4WD or participate in scuba diving, windsurfing or kite-surfing. For nature lovers, take a trip whale watching or watch the famous loggerhead turtles hatching (both seasonal). We can recommend local independent tour guides who live locally, or alternatively, you can hire a local taxi if you want to create an itinerary to suit yourselves. We're happy to help with any travel arrangements. There really is something for everyone in Boa Vista - enjoy! ADDITIONAL INFORMATION A fully refundable deposit of €100 is required upon check in which will be refunded upon check out Please note that electricity and water are valuable resources in Cape Verde and as such, is charged extra to encourage guests to use sparingly! Expect to pay around €20-€30 a week in total based on average usage. This will be deducted from your deposit on check out. Thank you for your understanding :-) More
