Casa Velha Resort, born in 2007 in Praia Estoril, just 200 meters from the beach and 500 meters from the square of Sal Rei. The building, constructed in the Portuguese colonial style, consists of various types of apartments, with one or two rooms, which overlook the characteristic quintal. Each apartment is equipped with kitchen and private veranda. Above, the beautiful terrace overlooking the sea; the lovely bar on the ground floor for the abundant breakfast buffet with fresh local produce and traditional dishes made by our staff and for drinks with a romantic candlelight with live Cape Verdean music. Casa Velha Resort, ideal for families, authentics traveler and sports lovers (thanks the proximity to the most important club of kite surfing and windsurfing).

Upon arriving, the lady at the reception was helpful by recommending where the main attractions were. The location was perhaps the most disappointing, as the surrounding building site was desolate and without a view of the beach from the communal terrace. At night there is very limited lighting to the apartment and the majority of employees speak only French or Portuguese, which was difficult for me. And the laundry is rediculous!!!!!!!!!

Building beautiful from the outside and from the inside, with the charm of colonial architecture, very tasteful decoration. Location is great: close to the beach with its nice beach cafés and close to the center with its restaurants. Next door: an excellent Italian bakery (the best croissants I have ever had! I recommend to have breakfast there - I don't like breakfast in hotels). Will return there when I come back to Boa Vista (soon, I hope!). Btw., I prefer Boa Vista to Sal. Less touristy, and (perhaps as a consequence) the locals are much nicer. And, in contrast with Sal, the big hotels are far away. And yes, this is a hotel for the individual traveler (i.e., this is not where the big travel agencies (TUI, ...) unload their groups.

The apartments are incredibly spacious and decorated in a very simplistic chic style that was lovely but in need of a little sprucing up. Peaceful location only a short walk to the beach and 10 minute walk out of town across a large piece of wasteland, not ideally suited to single travelers though as quite isolated and dark if going out at night. The night watchman were friendly but the other staff even given the language barrier could definitely have been more personable and cracked a smile occasionally. I would not recommend the breakfast which was the limited.. same thing everyday and really lacking imagination. Beware of the hotel tax which was charged when we were leaving and had not accounted for in our currency. I enjoyed my stay at Casa Vehla apartment and hope this review helps others to also.

I stayed in Casa Velha for a week and I have loved it. The place is located very close to the beach of Estoril and its at the beginning to Sal Rei. You can walk to Sal Rei within minutes and at night time its very quiet and relaxing. My apartment had a very strong smell of mould but it wasn't a major problem asI spent a lot of time out etc. Also, the fridge was a bit too noisy at night time. A part from these 2 issues that place is perfect.
