  • 4.0.Fair

    Het personeel heeft nog veel te leren wat betreft service gericht denken. Het ontbijt was vaak onvoldoende voorbereid (tafels niet goed gedekt, eten op enz.). Bij navraag werd over het algemeen geïrriteerd gereageerd in plaats van service-gericht en lerend voor de toekomst. Ik vind het niet gepast dat gemorste koffie over de rand van een kopje met een schuurspons uit de wasbak wordt afgeveegd en aan je wordt geserveerd. Best mogelijk dat het servicepeil in Kaapverdië niet mag worden gemeten aan de Europese norm maar ik kon geen enkel leerproces ontdekken. Onze airco was stuk, het duurde 5 dagen voordat deze was gerepareerd. Ook zaten we in eerste instantie in een appartement zonder warm water, zonder stoelen set op het balkon enz. Nee, ik zou dit complex niet aanbevelen.

    Agreable et reposant

    Hotel agréable et service toujours impeccable. Un bémol sur le petit-déjeuner, comme son nom l'indique c'est vraiment un petit déjeuner. Attention à l'entretien de cet hôtel qui pourrait vite se dégrader.

  • 6.0.Good

    Groot hotel, (te) rustig, zwembad vrij klein en koud, natuurzwembad (afgezette inham van oceaan) prima! Personeel spreekt nauwelijks Engels, hetgeen soms tot lastige situaties kan leiden. Ontbijt eenvoudig maar ok. Directe omgeving van hotel niet echt de moeite waard.

  • 6.0.Good

    Das Gebäude und die Infrastruktur ist nicht für Touristen sondern Seminar/Kongress Teilnehmenr ausgelegt. Das Personal ist bemüht und freundlich aber wenig profesionell und geschult. Es kam mehrfach vor das die Türen zum Restaurant/Frühstücksraum verschlossen waren oder man nichts essen konnte. Einzig die Angestellten der Reception arbeiteten gut und speditiv. Durch die geringe Belegung kam man sich oft ganz alleine vor und da es keinerlei Animation oder Veranstaltungen gab wurde das Hotel zum reinen Schlafplatz. Eigentlich schade den die Lage war gut auch ohne Sandstrand in der Nähe.
