I felt that I had good helpful advice on accommodation options and sailing venues from the team at Planet Kitesurf. I decided to stay at the Iberostar on Boa Vista and the team at Planet Kitesurf were concerned that this meant no recommended kite centre or safety cover. They also mentioned the shore break which was a real factor. The Iberostar is typical of an all-inclusive resort but is one of the better ones overall. They had plenty of variety on food, helpful staff and a relaxed atmosphere. Red wine only just drinkable as a negative and the accommodation at the back had a slight smell on the balcony and noise from what I think was their treatment works. It was not an issue for me but it could be for some. WiFi was limited and very expensive, plus you had to pay for the use of the safe in your room. The beach at the Iberostar is superb but the sea is not safe at this time of year for children due to the shore break but the lifeguard was very attentive and did assist me in recovering my kite when I screwed up in the shore break. Very happy with Planet Kitesurf - I felt my discussion was informed and helpful rather than trying to force me into a decision so whilst I made mistakes I am happy with that and feel that I got great advice and service.

The overall service I received from Planet Kitesurf in booking my holiday was helpful but they could have been a bit more proactive in assessing different travel options. The Ca Nicola Guesthouse was as I expected - the only downside was a lack of WiFi.

I was given good advice and recommendations and all the necessary information from Planet Kitesurf. Ca Nicola Guesthouse has plenty of room and is near the beach and windsurfing centre. The staff were very helpful and my instructor was excellent.

I received very clear and helpful advice from Planet Kitesurf. They identified the right location for the time of year I wanted to travel and my kitesurfing abilities. Luca Kalema is a little basic but is in a cracking location. It took a couple of days to dial into the conditions as it was a tad tricky for the first few hundred metres but then I headed downwind to sail at Morabeza. Rolling lazy swell and mirror flat at both ends of that bay for gybing. Amazing weather and reliable wind (if a tad gusty even in exposed sections) - 18 to 25 plus knots all day every day apart from two late afternoons where it glassed off for surfing. Three days I was overpowered on a 5m. Not sure it is right for beginners or early intermediates though. What struck me was the lovely mellow vibe around the beach - no intensity or pressure. The centre was really good and staff so helpful. Thanks again, we will definitely return. It was a really great trip to Boa Vista.
