Location directly at the ocean with great view of sunset from all rooms. Stony coast but with comfortable access to the water. Diving school. Nice apartments finished in traditional, rural style. Very large terraces with comfortable sunbeds. Good comunication in english in reception. Generally remember that african standards often don't meet european expectations.

Had a wonderful day cruise of the harbor on Friday Feb 17th 2017. The best time watching dolphins out in the harbor. The captain rick, was very nice and Karen and mike answered our questions through it the day.

It had been a spontaneous decision to pass by here and ask for a vacancy. We were lucky that Ursula was present, who later told us that she is from Kiel in Northern Germany and that she and her late husband (of whom there is a bust in the resort) had started this place back in 1995, slowly expanding it...

"This Is Africa"! So don't expect European standards. I'll start with the possibly negative things: - Santiago or Cape Verde at all is quite poor, and has not much infrastructure. Some of the rocky roads in Tarafal are lighted, but not all. Restaurants have not always "everything". - King Fisher is above local standard, but still basic - we saw...

It is the best hotel in Tarrafal (the only sandy beach in Santiago) but it is not the top of the pops hotel. The hotel has a rock spot for swimming, which is nice and sunny. Great for snorkeling. The rooms do not have black out courtins, so the sun comes in very early. It is very nice to hear...

The room was clean and although we hadn't booked one it was self catering. Should we have wanted to we could have cooked and there was also a small table top fridge. We had a roof terrace which was accessed by going out of the room and up a separate flight of stairs. Their were views towards the sea however...

The resort itself is nice but serious attitude problem from the german manager (owner?). She just didn't seem to care at all. Security staff was very nice and helpful when inquired about directions or other information. The dive was fine - how can someone be unpleasant underwater and lovely above the surface? The divemaster was so nice to talk to...

Wonderful accommodation on the perfect spot! We stayed at Coqueiro (2 double rooms, kitchen, bath and a lovely terrace. No barbeque but Pedro (receptionist) provided one! Very well equipped; nothing was missing. No air conditionning but room fans provide some fresh air. We decided to cook our own meals and loved to go to the market and local shops. If...

A good apartment - name grotto. Two separate beedrooms and a wonderful balcony. The reason why its only gets two stars is: a terrible bad cleaing of the apartment. The frezzer, the sink and the toilet did not work okay. If the management had fixed this it would have been a four star.
