Santa Maria Beach Hotel: "Do not go there" Cape Verde Hotel Tip by BombayGin

Cape Verde Hotels: 30 reviews and 31 photos

We were prebooked and had vouchers for Santa Maria Beach Hotel and when we got there, we were bundled off to Pensao Nha Terra as the owner had over booked his hotel. He shrugged his shoulders, offered not much in a way of explanation and we had no choice of where we were going or what else we could do to resolve this. It was even more frustrating as we had to leave the lovely and friendly Morabeza Hotel on Christmas Day to end up with a bad experience with Santa Maria Beach Hotel. This could have been avoided if the owner wasn't being greedy and over booking, hoping to make a quick buck. He even admitted putting other hotel guests in his own house and said it was perfectly normal to overbook. It's a case of a hotel owner not being able to say no. Avoid this hotel, as you're not guaranteed a roof over your head even after paying for your accommodation.
