10/10 Exceptional

I really enjoyed this property. I needed to be near the airport, but also wanted to be on the beach. This place is perfect. The grounds on the property are landscaped very nicely and this made for a very pleasant atmosphere. The beach is of course beautiful and right there. Having a restaurant on the property was convenient too, as well as breakfast.

Beautiful setting let down poor communication
Ok let’s start with the positives. The setting for the resort is STUNNING! The grounds of the resort are definitely where the money has been spent. The not so great : - the prearranged transfer that didn’t happen until 1hour 15 after we had arrived at the airport (galling considering the resort is 5 mins drive away). The manager did attempt to resolve by waiving the fee but still something you should be aware of. -The taxi (booked by staff when given the name of the restaurant ) that literally took us to the other end of the island before taking us to the actual restaurant. When we questioned the manager he advised that one of us had told the driver To go there . Ermm... we have never been to island and speak little Portuguese so how we managed that I don’t know. - the attempt to charge us a never mentioned supplement for Christmas Day dinner despite its being on half board and it being similar to what they served the next day at dinner. It was waived by the manager but again one of those things that grated - bar the rare exception staff were incredibly miserable. As a family we had just come from another island and hotel in Cape Verde where the staff would return your greetings or initiate them... nothing! -the leak in the villa toilet that was mentioned to the reception but not ever fixed -fittings in villa So overall, if you’re not going to be in the resort much and just want a place to stay you might consider it but I would not personally recommend.

Beautiful Hotel
I was there with my family and we enjoyed everything the hotel and staff had to offer. The staff at the reception area were very nice, polite, extremely helpful and accommodating. We would go into Mindelo and Sao Vicente during the day and come back to the peaceful tranquillity of the Foya Branca in the evenings. The rooms was nice and clean and no complaints about the WiFi....we had great access in our rooms and pool area.

Off the beaten path but nice
Great hotel on the beach. Only downside is no wifi and lots of wild cats around restaraunts. Relaxing atmosphere with great balcony off room. Lovely ocean view with beautiful stars at night

The only wifi is at the bar. Not a major hardship, but not convenient.
