  • We had a great stay at Pestana. I must admit, it did not stat well. We stayed on south of Sao Tome and a day before our booking, I called the hotel to ask if they have a free boat…

  • 6.0.Good

    Uma ou duas noites é o ideal

    O hotel tem praias lindíssimas ao seu redor e permite um acesso fácil ao marco do equador. Passar lá uma noite, ou no máximo duas e o ideal. Necessita de um refresh ao nível da decoração e de uma maior investimento na manutenção. O preço da travessia obrigatória, de barco, no próprio barco do hotel deveria estar incluída no preço da estadia. Ter de pagar cerca de 16,5€ por pessoa sem contar, não é de todo muito agradável...

    Obrigatorio para quem quer ficar no ilheu, é o unico hotel que la existe. Espaço agradavel, quartos grandes, as refeições estão incluidas na estadia o que faz com que não seja tão caro quanto parece, no entanto as bebidas são à parte e estão a um preço ( a meu ver) exagerado para a realidade
