Morabeza Hotel

Morabeza Hotel is on the sandy beach of Santa Maria on the southern tip of Sal island, in Cape Verde. The long stretch of beach makes Santa Maria a popular destination for holidaymakers, and you might even spot rays and sea turtles in the sea. At Morabeza Hotel, you'll have the choice of three outdoor pools to swim in, or you can take it easy and relax with a drink on the sun terrace. You can also walk around the hotel's gardens or enjoy some fresh seafood at the beach bar. There are three restaurants in the hotel serving a range of international dishes, along with a pool bar and a bar. If you want to enjoy some traditional music and dancing from Cape Verde, there are several evening performances from local musicians and groups every week. If you want to discover eating and drinking spots further afield, you can take a short walk from the hotel to Santa Maria Pier, where you'll be able to see fishermen catching fresh fish to eat that evening. You can continue down the promenade to get a taste of local street life and explore the shops, bars and open-air restaurants in the centre of Santa Maria.

The hotel is on Sal island, which is famous for its sandy beaches, and it sits directly on Santa Maria beach. The centre of Santa Maria town is 100m from the hotel, and here you can find a range of places to eat, drink and shop. If you want to explore Sal beyond Santa Maria, you can take a day trip to see some of the natural wonders of the island. These include the Pedra de Lume, a salt mine in the crater of an active volcano and the Buracona Lagoon, a striking sea cave with blue waters.

The hotel has three a la carte restaurants. You can enjoy live music while you eat at one of the restaurants. For a lunchtime snack, you can head down to the beach restaurant and bar. The hotel also has two more bars to choose from when you fancy a drink.

The hotel has tennis courts, table tennis, a pool table and a gym. You can also play a round of mini golf.

The hotel has three pool areas. On the beach there is the Aquarius bar. If you live in the Bazamore buildings and go to the beach, you have to cross a busy road. If you book for half board and full board sun loungers and parasols on the beach below the hotel are included.

Rooms at Morabeza are bright and airy. They have air conditioning, satellite TV, Wi-Fi and a safe for you to store your valuables.

The hotel has a shop selling beachwear and souvenirs.

Perfect for all that Santa Maria to offer

Apr 2022 | Mr_Jprice

An oasis of relaxed sophistication in a perfect location for Santa Maria. Considering we stayed the second week of the Easter holidays, this hotel was very quiet and calm with only a handful of children who played happily in one of the three pools on site. Unlike many of the other hotels in Sal, Morabeza is only a stones throw from the main street of Santa Maria yet it is kept wonderfully clean, calm and serene. The breakfast buffet was the same every day but there was plenty of choice and although we only stayed for dinner once, it was one of the best meals we had on the island. Each day following breakfast we made our way to the sun loungers available to guests on the beach where the waiters were happy to bring you any refreshments needed and it wasn't over priced. Really good value. All in all I would really recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to be in walking distance to the town, the beach and the activities to offer in Santa Maria. It was kept immaculately, the staff were courteous and professional at all times and it had all the activities you need readily available. I would also recommend hiring a car from the Hertz reception onsite - we covered the main attractions at Sal easily on our own and at our own pace - it is quite an adventure and easy to get around the island.

Beautiful location, beautiful hotel, beautiful people

Incredible location on a beautiful beach but minutes away from shops restaurants as well. Morabeza exceeded all my expectations. Super clean, very helpful staff, and lovely bar with live music, beautiful view, and a great vibe. It was an incredibly peaceful and beautiful stay. I cannot say enough about the kind and helpful staff. They also recommended a wonderful tour guide for us, Nelson. Highly recommend!

Family run friendly lively spot.

We are very much enjoying our stay here. Staff are very friendly and there is a nice atmosphere- more convivial and local than some of the more soulless hotels. Very clean. La Tortue Bar on the balcony is a great space with frequent live music. Excellent location right in the edge of town. We booked bed and breakfast and tried out lots of the fun little cafes on the Main Street. We went horse riding with Santa Marihla Horse Excursions-Teo and his team are excellent, I would highly recommend them. Thanks Morabeza for a great stay.
