This is a small 8 bedroom family hotel located about a mile from Cidade Velha. There is a swimming pool at the hotel and a small rocky beach below the hotel. Rooms are adequate and air-conditioned. Other than breakfast, food is not included in the...More

I don't give a 1 point rating easily. But then... I've never left a hotel early. We booked this hotel for 6 nights and left after the first. Not that everything was terrible. Just nothing was right. I don't have high expectations of hotels in...More

We live about 20 miles away from this place but only yesterday, June 1st, we were able to go and stay there. Could not believe our eyes as we went in. The swimming pool, clear as cristal, with the Atlantic Ocean in the background, was...More

Was here for a wedding and arrived 2 Am early and yet found the owner waiting for us. Mr Almeida always had a smile and a quick quip. Initially what we though as reluctance to communicate, soon turned out to be embarassment at not speaking...More

In an earlier planing stage we decided to stay at this hotel - not far from the airport - for our first few nights as the reviews have been good and the e-mail contact with the owner was pleasant. When however our flight got cancelled...More

Questions & Answers
Ask a question
I am interested in staying at Hotel Por Do Sol for seven days this coming September. I am a 67-year old man, will be alone, and would need a single, non-smoking room. I hope to use the hotel as a base for exploring Santiago Island. I will be flying into Praia airport from Providence, Rhode Island, USA. Should I get a taxi at the airport? Or does the hotel have a pick up at the airport service (for a fee, of course)? One day I hope to take the whole island tour offered by Cabo Verde Island Tours, which starts in Praia. Are taxies readily available in Ciudad Velha to get me back to Praia in time for the morning start of the tour? Other days I will be returning to the city to visit the Museums and market, and also will make a stop at the nearby university. So, having access to reliable and safe taxi service will be important for me. Are payments at the hotel for rooms and meals only in cash? Or, are a credit card or traveler's checks possible? For safety reasons, I would prefer not to be carrying a fair amount of cash on me all week. I am very interested in Espaco Por do Sol, and am very well traveled and a no problem American guest. I look forward to your response. Alex Gondola
