  • I had low expectations about this place! Our bungalow was fantastic, the pool was to day for, so it was a nice surprise. Low points: - the food is basic and boring; - It was our second anniversary.....  more »

  • I went to the Isla Roles for the mark of Equator, but it was far better than that. A short trip through equatorial jungles with a local guide. Fantastic view and pictures on the Zero Mark. The mark...  more »

  • I don't like being a captive hotel guest and despite the amazing location, there is only one hotel on the island and they don't treat people very nicely despite the outrageous rates.
  • The most relaxing place on earth with a very beautiful beach. The blow hole I saw too was a bit scary but beautiful. Everything was on point there. I enjoyed my stay there
  • Dirty as everything else in ST&P, but VERY beautiful. The equator landmark is in ruins as expected, but it's still very much worth the trip.
  • Paradise little island, right on the Equator line. The only (official) way to get there is the boat that is running from the Sao Tome island, Ponta Baleia. It is organized by the only resort on Rolas Island, Pestana Equador, but locals from Porto Alegre will sail you, too, for a fee you would agree upon. There are also a few locals living on the Rolas Island, some of them willing to take you around on a guided tour. If you chose to explore on your own, you will find small deserted paradise beaches or beautiful views form the cost line.
  • Beautiful island on the life of guinea swna. We cross the line of the equator. Crossing a boat for beautiful hikes
