6 reasons why our guests keep coming back to Morabeza



We’re a family run hotel 

Our clients enjoy the fact that it’s not part of a big hotel chain. Authenticity and “feeling at home” are the comments we regularly receive. Today, the hotel is run by the third generation of the Vynckier family. 


The tranquility 

You will never feel like it is crowded at Morabeza, even when the hotel is full. Just under 10 Acres of land with 127 accommodations… In addition, there are 3 pools for you to unwind in. You will hear the sound of the waves at night as well as birds chirping in the morning. 


The hospitality of our staff

Our staff is known for their friendliness and warmness. Out of  170 employees, we have 14 who have been with us for more than 30 years and 60 for more than 20 years. We believe that happy employees means happy guests. We have got families who have transmitted their gift for hospitality to their children who have then embarked in the Morabeza team for three generations.  


Sustainable efforts

Since its very beginning in 1967, Hotel Morabeza has been renowned as a pioneering company for its determination to use and develop renewable energy sources on the one hand, and on the other hand its wish to respect the particularly vulnerable natural environment of Sal.  


Our history

The hotel was opened in 1967 and it started from a holiday house. Morabeza became an emblematic hotel of Cabo Verde not only due to its Morabeza (which means hospitality) but also due to it being one of the longest established hotels in Sal. However, it is constantly improving the existing installations.   Read more about it’s history here



The hotel is located just next to the main pier of Santa Maria with its magnificent white sand beach as well as a stone’s throw from the city center.
