    Solar Windelo is a charming little hotel on top of a small hill with fantastic view across the bay and city below. I say "small hill" as some of the other hills we walked up on Santo Antao were considerably higher and harder to walk up/down. The rooms are clean and tidy, but what makes this place special is the people who run the hotel on a day to day basis. Veronico and his family made me and my boys feel very welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. He even helped me arrange a two day excursion to a neighboring island which was fantastic. Veronico was also instrumental in helping us find some of the best spots to go snorkeling, (Sao Pedro) and being able to swim with Turtles & Sharks. I was a little worried that the hotel did not have a pool on site, but the city beach is only a 10min walk away and is a great excuse to stop by the local ice-cream shop on the way. My only criticism, would be that the breakfast needs to be varied, as having cheese and bread every morning to two weeks get a bit boring.

    Belle vue sur la baie de Mindelo

    Veronico est sympathique et de bon conseil La suite Vasco est spacieuse et confortable Le petit dejeuner est bon, et, si vous pouvez vous installer sur l'une des 2 tables de la terrasse: c'est top Moins de 10 min. à pied du bord de mer

    Spacious room with a nice view

    We spent four nights in Hotel Solar Windelo (room "Suite Vasco"). The hotel is located on a hill and therefore offered a very nice view of the city. The room itself was very spacious and clean. The water pressure in the shower was good. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was simple, but good. The hotel also organized a taxi to the airport for us, which was nice. What can be improved: 1. The internet connection was often bad. I did three speed tests at three different times on three different days. The download rate varied between 0.87 and 14.1 Mbps and the upload rate between 0.00 and 1.00 Mbps. Therefore, for example a Skype call is hardly possible. 2. The bed was uncomfortable and narrow (according to Google Measures 1.35 m). If you're not thin and don't want to stick to your partner all night, it gets tight. When one of us moved, the other person woke up. Not as a critique, just as an information: There is neither a refrigerator nor a television in the room. Enjoy the view!;) Additional tourism tax was 220 Escudos per person and night. Overall, we were happy with our choice and can recommend the hotel!
