It all depends on what you're looking for.

DO NOT stay downtown - there aren't any beaches there.

I usually say Jurere Internacional, Praia Mole and Praia Brava.

You should also take a look at Lagoa da Conceição. It's very lively and close to restaurants/bars and Praia Mole is not far. but just note that although very beautiful, it's not a beach.

You can also find nightlife there too.

Take a look at this post:

If you want to stay close to nightlife, there are 2 major places, either the LAgoa da Conceicao town (charming town close to the eastern beaches), or Jurere, where most of the beach clubs are. In the Lagoa area, a good option is the http://www.colinasdalagoa.com/ or the http://www.samukahotel.com/

The options in Jurere are more expensive, take a look at some options:

Have a great time in the island!

Unfortunetely, the only place where you could "join" beach and night life is the very expensive Jurere Internacional.

But my favorite beach is Praia Brava (excellent and full of beautiful people, but without night life) and that is where I usually try to rent an apartment.

The liveliest place at night is the Lagoa da Conceicao, but, there, you won´t be at a foot distance of a good and trendy beach scene.
