5 star? I Don't think so!

May 2022 | Thehotelisrubbish

Very excited to be having this holiday after the last few years, got to the hotel late so didn't have chance to see much, well I've been here 10 days and can honestly say I wish I had only booked a week, counting the days to go home. The resort is tired and run down, food is plentiful but meh, and repetitive, entertainment, well there doest seem to be any to speak of, the different coloured arm bands confusing, and the towels for yellow arm bands inferior to reds, on the plus side the staff are amazing, although there still seems to be a lack of communication. Tida on reception deserves a special mention for being such a The pools are plentiful and lovely too. Don't expect snacks from the snack bar, it's meals, they don't seem to know what a snack is, I've resorted to buying my own crisps at 4e a pack I won't be coming back to Cape verdi, which is a shame as I had such high hopes of the place, so to summarise, overpriced and overhyped.

Nice Hotel

First time Cape Verde, very nice hotel. Sergio from reception was very nice and helped us very good! There is an ATM in hotel that’s super! Restaurant was very good. Soo much food an variety. You can also eat ala carte in 4 restaurants..personel was friendly, but RENY and his sister where the best!! Good English, very helpful, always happy faced and sooo friendly. Pool bar guy HELY was also very good and friendly.. our drinks and koffie was ready when he saw us. For our child it was sad that the glides didn’t worked. But the pool was good and the sea also.. many fishes good snorkeling. Weather was hot and very windy..Room was good and clean.. bed was a bit hard. Entertainment team for kids was not very for kids

Needn’t have worried!

Have just returned from a week’s stay at Sol Dunas, our second visit but the first with our 3 year olds. Having read the reviews since the hotel re-opened I was a bit apprehensive but I shouldn’t have been. Room was clean and well appointed. Food was plentiful (although repetitive as is the case with most all-inclusive buffets I have been too) and we had no problems with any undercooked food as others noted. The boys enjoyed time at the kids club, and we enjoyed drinks whilst they did! My only fault of the holiday was they didn’t have any pina colada mix whilst we were there so no complaints at all!
