The staff make this hotel brilliant! They truly went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time there. Thank you to the amazing ents team who are always filled with good energy! Natty, Jess, Elly, Evans & Fraco - keep up the great work! Also the lovely Atillio, Hugo & Elaine on the bar. The restaurant staff &chefs, security/reception & Danny at the spa - thank you all. We booked 2 excursions through the hotel and Parissa did a great job ensuring we had the best time. I'd recommend the catamaran & you can't miss the full day island tour with Scooby - it was by far the highlight. What a memorable day!
The food was great, lots of options for breakfast and lunch and we eat fresh fish daily. Defo worth going 'all-in'. Unlike some hotels I've stayed at who have a bad habit of catering to what they consider will please the British palettes & serving pretty bland food, Halos (being an Italian hotel with CV chef) provided flavourful food. We had local foods (inc hard foods e.g sweet potato & cassava) on their Cape Verdean night. Evening entertainment at the bar was varied & good fun.The beach is a couple of mins walk with plenty of loungers/shade & the bar nearby. We preferred the beach as the hotel pool was icy! I believe this was fixed before we left as it did feel much warmer so we got in & had a nice swim.
The hotel is conveniently located about 5 mins walk into town.
Message to the hotel owner: please purchase some new pillows for the guests to have a good nights sleep.
