Blue Marlin Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Blue Marlin is a new hotel in town and it is really worth a stay! I don't think any establishment can provide a better to its guests: overlooking the harbor I had a 180 degree view from my balcony (room 8) over the whole bay of Mindelo! I liked the electric blinds that put the room in total darkness, which is helpful to recover after a night flight. The staff is always smiling, professional, kind and very discreet. I had dinner there and I wasn't disappointed. The manager is French and he taught his local chef how to prepare FANTASTIC crêpes. I am a big fan of crêpes and almost an expert, and those I ate at the Blue Marlin did compare to the best ones I ever ate in my life. I asked them to prepare me crêpes for breakfast, and as an afternoon snack, and I was in heaven. There is small pool and a small gym accessible 24/7 with cardio machines, dumbbells and a punching bag. The hotel is a little outside the center in a quiet location, but a few minutes walk away from the city center of Mindelo: ideal locatoin I think. One advice: they should invest in a refrigerated breakfast display... I will come back for sure!

The hotel was situated close to the harbour and only a short walk from both the town and beach. The rooms and public spaces were clean and airy and beautifully decorated. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The pool area was quiet and pleasant and while the pool is small, it was just right for lane swimming. The food in the hotel was great value and beautifully cooked, we ate dinner there 3 times. We tended to miss breakfast, but enjoyed freshly squeezed orange and coffee on the terrace.

We just stayed at the Blue Marlin and we were very pleased. The location is good and offers beautiful views of the harbor. If you plan to walk to town, it is an easy walk down the cobblestone streets. If you can't do stairs, there is an elevator that goes to the underground parking. The rooms are very clean and comfy. Not too many channels to chose from but you didn't come here to watch TV The staff is very friendly and very accommodating. The pool is small but good for swimming laps. The breakfast was good and they are eager to make fresh eggs for you. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again. Enjoy your time in Mendelo!

Great hotel on a great location. Rooms are very clean and fully equipped. Swimming pool isn't very big, but big enough to swim some tracks. The restaurant is next to the lobby and the breakfast is simple but good. Dinner is another story, we where with a big group and they didn't seem to be ready for that. Although more restaurants seem to have this problem.

Du haut de gamme pour visiter Sao Vicente Accueil excellent, hôtel très bien tenu, vastes chambres avec vue sur la baie, excellente cuisine,très bons petits déjeuners , on peut y aller sans hésitation. Merci au patron et à sa femme , au cuisinier exceptionnel et à tout le personnel. Demandez l'adresse du restaurant de la sœur de la patronne à la baie des Gatas vous serez enchantés.

Hotel récent, bien conçu, bien aménagé avec un personnel des plus accueillant, souriant et à l'écoute du client. La chambre était très agréable et confortable avec une belle décoration. Les menus de bonne qualité, le service aussi, le restaurant n'est pas typique. La localisation de l'hôtel est bien, au calme avec une belle vue sur la baie de Mindelo au lever et au coucher du soleil; les propriétaires sont prêt à rendre service

très belle emplacement: vue sur le port et la ville de MINDELO; très calme car en fin de route sans issue; bonne accueil avec personnel francophone; chambre de bonne dimension et bien équipée avec salle de bain moderne prix à négocier

Accueil sympathique, hotel très propre avec bon wifi, à 5 minutes du centre de Mindelo donc un peu plus au calme. Le petit déjeuner était copieux (on nous a proposé une version simplifiée pour notre départ très matinal), et le repas du soir convenable, surtout si vous ne voulez pas retournez en ville et souhaitez avoir un service relativement rapide. A recommander, sachant que toutefois, l'hôtel étant très récent, il n'a pas beaucoup de caractère.

excellent accueil des propriétaires Didier et Toya ,très bel hotel bien exposé avec une superbe vue sur la baie de Mindelo ,personnel charmant et très professionnel , bonne cuisine grace a un petit chef comme Nati ! efficace et de plus toujours souriante. Etablissement a recommander

Ce petit hôtel que l’on voit depuis le ferry en provenance de Santõ Antao est un petit bijou accroché au dessus de la baie de Mindelo. La vue y est magnifique. Ouvert en mars dernier, l’hôtel est très bien équipé et propose même une petite piscine. À 10 minutes à pieds du centre de Mindelo. Petit déjeuner complet. Seul bémol: la clientèle du bar/restaurant qui s’attarde en terrasse (et on la comprend !) située juste sous les fenêtres des chambres. Prévoir des boules Quiès ;-)
