Everything about this place was fantastic, from the room with the terrace and view over the sea (imagine to sleep with the sound of the sea!), the gorgeous pool or the stunning food served looking at the sea. If you want to treat yourself and get away from it all, that’s the place to go. Also the owners were very friendly as was the staff. Tarrafal is fabulous. Do go hiking to the lighthouse, fun and so gorgeous.
We stayed 8 days in November 2020 and truly loved it. It was perfect to escape the constant corona topic of this year. Safety concept for corona was available with touchless disinfectant and mobile lavatories. The hotel is designed with a very open air concept at a privat bay. We spent a lot of the time reading at the saltwater pool, very relaxing. The open restaurant with terrace invites you to enjoy the ocean view (including unforgettable sunsets) with amazing fresh and local dinner made by Flavio, a swiss chef, and his beautiful team. We also went hiking with Maneca, a great guide with great knowledge about his land. We were able to recharge our batteries at this peaceful place. Definitely not the last time at King Fisher Village.
Beautiful surroundings with an island full of amazing people. Even with some details being finished with refurbishment still enjoyed every single minute. Amazing facilities and views. Definitely considering to return but this time to do more activities.
We have stayed here in July, appartment 1 is located in the same house as the reception. We loved our stay. The appartment was very large with a big terrace overlooking the sea, living room with fridge, two bedrooms with mosquito nets, a nice bathroom with open rooftop. We had our own entrance to the sea via stairs. The restaurant serves very nice food in the evening. Breakfast was fine. Also book a massage, you can hear the sea while relaxing. You can walk to the beach in around 10 minutes. The bakery, mini markets and bank can be found on the way to the beach. Buy a caipirinha at the little info stall that arrives at the beach in the morning!
Stayed one in this very little quaint resort in the middle of “Desolation Boulevard”. Thank you to Dora who provided us with a nice room (Brava ll). This room has a super balcony that takes advantage of being on the second floor on the edge of the little bay. The waves and breeze made for a super sleeping experience. Breakfast was fresh and local and was held on the patio of the original house with the waves crashing while you ate. The resort offers a 1 choice evening meal which work if you were staying longer. In addition, it is a short walk out the gate to the left to a waterfront container cafe and bar to watch the sunset. Continue along the gravel path and you will get to beaches and bays of Tarrafal after 15 minutes. Do not walk this path to the beach at night. It is ok to return to the resort from the cafe but nowhere else. You will get mugged. The resort has a security fence, guard and keyed gate so it is fine. Arrange a guide for any off-site touring from the day staff who all speak enough English. Very few locals speak any English but do have some French. This resort takes credit cards. Thanks again Dora!…
