The Robinson Club Cabo Verde is an ‘Adults Only’ resort, attracting couples and single travelers over the age of 18years from all over the world.

TUI guests from Austria, Germany and Switzerland currently make up a large proportion of the guests staying at the Robinson Club Cabo Verde with other Tour Operators in the UK and other countries taking up the rest.

The guest accommodation consists of 307 rooms which include 16 suites. Within the vast grounds and open spaces there is a large gym facility which accommodates a group fitness room, a Body & Mind room for yoga & Pilates, indoor cycling and walking/jogging machines.

The two outdoor swimming pools can be enjoyed by both non-swimmers and swimmers. There are shaded areas for relaxing in the sun or can choose to have your own Bali bed which can be shaded or non-shaded.

Many of the staff at the Robinson Club Cabo Verde are those who were previously employed at the Crioulo Hotel before it closed down. All the staff enjoy the family philosophy of the Robinson Club. Don’t be surprised either, to see some of the management staff serving drinks, helping in the restaurant or joining in with the activities at Robcarpet, its’ all part of the Robinson Club philosophy.

This wasn't the regular type of tour offered by many, but one I thought you may be interested in. The tour included a visit to Sal island prison and Alto Santa Cruz. But firstly we had to be informed what this type of tour involved and about some of the items we could or shouldn't take. +

It can take a considerable amount of time and perseverance to obtain some info. It took me 7 months of visits to Espargos at least twice a month to get one official and necessary document amended due to an error that was made on a record system at the Camara Municipal.  +

Hi Ed. After much consideration and weighing up the pros and cons as to who to chose to host my site, I have decided that I should go along with yourself and use Adobe Business Catalyst software with Eclipse Online Solutions. I think it is the right product for me to try at this time. +

The reason for choosing Eclypse Online Solutions over others were several. I was approached by Chris in Jan 2009 about an online system. I'd met Chris when he's visited Cape Verde in 2008. He told me about his brother's web business in Perth, Australia. +

Having watched the TV programme 'A Place in the Sun' early in 2005 about the islands of Cabo Verde (Cape Verde), I was immediately interested in what the islands offered.... as well as, or near enough, 'all year round sunshine'. +

After some months of considering what was to be done as regards the upgrade of this website, the decision was made in 2015 to choose a new template for the site instead of completely re-designing it (little did I know what was ahead). +

Hi Ed. I started off this morning on one thing from the notes I took when we met. I was adding links within the Site Info page, but as usual I ended up going off in different directions, mainly due to the fact that I realised that there were some things I didn't have anything to link too. +

Understanding the concept of various functionalities and the coding of this system can only be done if I spend more time and effort reading about them, but more importantly, understanding what I have just read!  +

Cape Verde and what tourists or investors know about the islands
Cheryl Thomas - 28, Monday, August 28, 2017

I sometimes wonder how or when many of those that promote Cape Verde will start referring to the individual island in promotional business, travel articles or other. +
