Hotel Morabeza

Hotel Morabeza is one of Cape Verde’s best hotel and was the very first hotel on the island of Sal. The hotel opened in 1967 as South African Airways started flights to the island and the airlines staff and crew needed a comfortable hotel to stay. The hotel is located right at the beautiful Santa Maria Beach and is within easy walking distance to restaurants, bars and shops.

Hotel Morabeza has 140 rooms and the location is the big selling point in my opinion. The staff and service was as good as it gets in Cape Verde with friendly staff in all areas, although many could need more training to provide more professional service. Morabeza gets a lot of European charter tourists and for that it’s just perfect. Cape Verde is just not a destination for people looking for outstanding hotel experiences. The food is good and better than Melia and overall this is my favorite hotel in The Cape Verde Islands.

My opinion: Good+ experience.
