Overview Of Morabeza Hotel

The hotel is located on the beautiful Santa Maria Beach on the southern most part of the island of Sal, Cape Verde. It is like a small village quarter full of trees and flowers.

Morabeza means welcome in the local Creole language. And that's exactly how you'll feel at this family-run old-timer. It started life over 40 years ago as a private family home, and today this converted villa has blossomed into the perfect blend of home and hip.

From the outside, the reception building is every inch the Portuguese farmhouse all sand-colored stone, wooden balconies and terracotta roof tiles. But inside they've taken a more modern approach.

Drink & Dine

The bars and restaurants are a showcase of beach cool, too.

Take Aquarius for instance. It is part of the hotel's Beach Club and comes with a seaview terrace and laid-back surf vibe. 

Hotel Morabeza's breakfast buffet is a great way to start your day. You can enjoy a fine breakfast inside, or outside on our Esplanade.

Santa Maria's seaside Beach Club restaurant is definitely the most pleasant lunch spot. The menu mainly consists of local fish dishes enabling the visitor to discover such local specialties. Emphasis is placed on local music, and the village musicians come about the hotel daily at around aperitif time, or during the evening. The Aquarius bar is adjoining to the Beach Club.

The Tortue Bar is an undeniable spot, to begin or end your evening. This bar offers a small a la carte restaurant for dinner (at menu price), where one can enjoy a world of exotic tastes. Its Tortue that's the real talking point here. This bar-come-restaurant has a roof terrace setting and its particularly pretty at night. Don't miss the musical appointment and thematic evening!

Les Palmiers restaurant will delight you with its refined, gourmet gastronomy. A varied daily menu is offered to the half-board clients, bringing dinner and buffet breakfast and white wicker chic to the poolside.


Your stay at Hotel Morabeza can be as active or as relaxing as desired. The hotel has three freshwater swimming pools, two tennis courts, volleyball, a fitness course and a gymnasium. Massage, archery, mini-golf, pétanque, a games room with two snooker tables, table tennis, darts and board games are also available.
