There are no maior hotels on São Nicolau.
However there are a few small comfortable B&Bs and guesthouses to choose from.
This delightful pension is set on the hillside in Ribeira Brava
You reach it after a short walk from the road and up some steep steps. The owners are very welcoming and keep everything spotlessly clean.

On the top floor are the breakfast room, bar and restaurant, serving good Cape Verdean food.
