Unprofessional staff , unorganized, poor Wi-Fi There was no access to the pool due to a wedding event, not a lot food options. Had to cut the amount of days stayed due to me and my family being unsatisfied.

Amazing customer service - over and above!!!
This hotel is just awesome!! The staff especially were so friendly and helpful!!! Room 202 with the balcony view is incredible and those rooms are amazing for sunrise views with lovely little well thought about balconies! It’s a cute little hotel with gorgeous views, the staff let us pick the room that we wanted when we asked. One of the guys at reception literally answered all of our questions even when they were unrelated to his service or even the island! He looked up tour companies for us on other islands as we were short on time! The customer service was really impressive and this hotel ensured that our stay started off on the best possible note! Thank you so much for all your hard work and well done!

Oú sont les quatre étoiles ?
Tout d’abord, lorsque je suis entrée dans la chambre, le personnel n’est même pas capable de me dire bonjour ou même bon séjour. Ensuite, je suis arrivé pour déjeuner vers 14h50 sachant que le buffet ferme à 15h30 lorsque je suis allé me servir il n’y avait que du riz j’ai dû beaucoup attendre. Alors que, le lendemain je suis reparti au buffet qui ouvrait à 12h30 celui ci ne fut ouvert qu’à 14h. Cependant j’ai eu la bonne surprise d’être servi par une personne très agréable et attentionnée qui m’a accompagné tout au long du séjour. Néanmoins, j’ai comme même bien mangé, bien profité de la piscine. De plus la climatisation ne marchait pas et il y avait des insectes de partout. Je n’ai pas aimé la réception le personnel peu professionnel. Pour conclure je ne dirais Pas que ce n’est un bon hôtel , puisque que pour passer la journée c’est très bien je dirais juste qu’il ne correspond pas à un quatre étoiles. De

Het personeel heeft nog veel te leren wat betreft service gericht denken. Het ontbijt was vaak onvoldoende voorbereid (tafels niet goed gedekt, eten op enz.). Bij navraag werd over het algemeen geïrriteerd gereageerd in plaats van service-gericht en lerend voor de toekomst. Ik vind het niet gepast dat gemorste koffie over de rand van een kopje met een schuurspons uit de wasbak wordt afgeveegd en aan je wordt geserveerd. Best mogelijk dat het servicepeil in Kaapverdië niet mag worden gemeten aan de Europese norm maar ik kon geen enkel leerproces ontdekken. Onze airco was stuk, het duurde 5 dagen voordat deze was gerepareerd. Ook zaten we in eerste instantie in een appartement zonder warm water, zonder stoelen set op het balkon enz. Nee, ik zou dit complex niet aanbevelen.
