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. +

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. +

So the next Wednesday, 24th June (my 7th visit, but with no translator) I went back to the Nat.Police Station to hopefully collect my 6 month visa. The Police officer looked at my papers and there was note on there written by someone else saying I needed one particular document. +

Staff at each of the places I visited to apply for different documentation for my Residency told me a different day to call back for them the following week (i.e. it will be ready on Monday, ready in 3 days, ready by Wednesday, or in one week etc). I also needed to pay for a number of documents in advance.  +
