Our hotel was a bit of an oasis in the middle of desert – full of palm trees, beautiful fountains, sand coloured buildings and a lovely cool swimming pool.
A swimming pool we very quickly discovered had a swim up bar – plus unlimited drinks as part of our package. Mum and I took full advantage of their delicious, juicy mocktails while we lounged by the pool ready our books – not a bad way to spend a relaxing week away!
One thing we did notice about Cape Verde is that they have a lot of stray cats – and they are all very friendly! (Especially when you have food nearby)
If you do end up going to Cape Verde, I would recommend booking onto a Thomson all inclusive holiday like we did – the hotel was beautiful, the staff were all very friendly locals and the Thomson reps were always around to help.
