Enjoyable Stay
We enjoyed our stay. The staff spoke English well, and everyone was very helpful. The breakfast buffet was excellent. This hotel is in the middle of the city, where it may be less safe for tourists, but the city has guards on every corner to keep us safe. It is close to Quebra Canela Beach and many shops.

Great location, wifi - not so much.
Security great, location is great. Hotel manager, no where to be found when there's an issue. Wifi is bad, and hotel staff is aware of it - hasn't fixed it satisfactorily. Avoid the restaurant waiter with booze on his breath - they'll mess up your dinner order. Hotel knew about him too.

My Ferry from Fogo Island to Santiago Island was cancelled the day I was supposed to travel so I showed up at the hotel a day late and as I did not have any internet connection to communicate with the hotel from Brava Island. They were kind enough to allow me to check in for a few hours when I showed up a day late so that I could get a shower & have a little rest before my flight out that night. I give them 5 stars for this but I also note that this was not high season.& I am grateful for them accommodating me!

hotel confortable
L’hotel est situé dans un immeuble récent avec des commerces et restaurants à proximité ; la plage est à 800m à pied. La chambre était spacieuse avec très grand lit ; l’air conditionné et le wifi fonctionnaient très bien ; il y avait un grand placard bien pratique ; en revanche il n’y avait pas de coffre fort Le personnel était serviable et attentionné ; le petit-déjeuner était varié et bon et servi dans une grande salle ; la piscine sur la terrasse est minuscule

Nous sommes passés deux fois à Praia au Santiago Hôtel et avons été très satisfaits de la qualité du service et de l’attention du personnel. L’hôtel n’était pas très occupé donc très calme et silencieux. Petit déjeuner correct et un dîner avant le départ le jour du Nouvel An où ils ont fait au mieux pour répondre à notre attente. Chambres simples mais fonctionnelles, roof top avec petite piscine sympathique pour s’y retrouver et boire un rafraîchissement. Bonne expérience tout à fait satisfaisante. Merci
