    We were very pleased with the property, the amenities, Magellan’s food and Everton at the front desk. He was very helpful throughout the entire week. My kids miss Sal already. We didn’t like the 6hr wait to get in our room even though I requested an early check-in since our flight was supposed to arrive at 5:30 am. Maybe accommodate early Arrival?

    Rooms nice and modern and spacious. Gardens beautiful. Location great. Staff very helpful and friendly but levels of English limited which sometimes lead to misunderstandings. Pool looked gorgeous but was in heated and too cold.

    Hilton hotel is very new in Cabo Verde, one year old, I believe. Service, food, facilities are of very good standard. Very friendly staff. Location is superb. Can’t really recall anything that I didn’t like.

  • 6.0.Good

    After 10AM is almost impossible to get a place at the beach or pool. The chairs often are reserved by guests which are not using it. The hotel’s management takes no action to avoid it!! Guest need to discuss with each other to get a place.
