9.2 Excellent
Pros: I loved everything about this hostel! The atmosphere is great, eventhough there are a lot of different people staying there (couples, families, single travellers). The common areas and rooms are cleaned every day, which is very helpful with all the sand being dragged in from the beach ;) The location of the hostel is very nice, right across from the market and some shops. The beach is at walking distance and there are mini busses right across the street that can take you to Assomada or Praia. Last but not least, Wilson (who works in de hostel) was amazing and gave a lot of helpful information. He also showed us around and joined us for dinner/drinks a few times. Overall, I would definitely recommend visiting the amazing little town of Tarrafal, and staying in this hostel!

Cons: Nada
9.6 Excellent
Pros: - the emplacement is perfect for me : near from the market, the supermarker, the sea, the main place, the Bank, the pub, the aluger/taxis stop... - the hotess : kalida is wonderfull. She gives you advices, she helps if you need anything, she discusses with you (she likes talking :p ), she is really close to her guest. - the atmospher of the place is really nice and without stress. - the cleanliness REALLY RECOMANDED !!!
Cons: -The only big point is the problem with the water. Some days you don't have water to cook, make the dishes or take a shower. That's a problem but is the same in hole the city so it s not Kalida's fault. - an other, but smaller, point is that the rooms next to the reception are noisy. The isolation is not so good so you hear everything's happening in the hall.
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: It’s An wonderfull
6.3 Good
Pros: At this hotel restaurant and the food was amazing..
Cons: We booked the hotel for 2 days through booking.com. When we arrived for checkin they said there is no available room at the hotel and they said we are sorry that we can not give you the room. They arranged a room for the first night at the next hotel. We need to change the room/hotel. It was the first experience for us.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was our first time in Cabo Verde, and King Fisher Village made it very easy for us to have a great experience. The room and facilities were wonderful, but above all the extremely friendly, competent and helpful staff made us feel very welcome. Our arrival was delayed, and I was able to arrange a transfer from Praia with short notice. A local driver and staff picked us up at midnight, and we right away were delighted with the attention given to the guests. This set the tone for the rest of our stay, which included many helpful tips, guides being arranged, and relaxed and friendly interactions with the staff which is both young and professional, and always had a smile to share. The breakfast overlooking the ocean was delicious, and being able to have a drink on our own rooftop terrace was an unexpected treat. The walk into the small town of Tarrafal and to the wonderful beach was easy and always full of interesting sights. THANK YOU!!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful, spacious room with seaview from bathroom, bedroom and terrace. It is super relaxing to fall asleep with the sound of the sea. Also for our 6-month old son! Although the breakfast at the hotel is somewhat expensive, it is very complete with both sweet and salty. The homemade yoghurt is a must try, it is delicious! The hotel has a dive center on-site, Georg was very friendly and helpful to accommodate the 2 dives I did during my holiday. Location of King Fisher Village is ideal, outside of Tarrafal centre but walking distance from restaurants, beach and shops.
7.1 Good
Pros: The hardest mattresses in Cape Verde and we have been travelling the islands for a month, ,
Cons: Food mark up too high Tarrafel in March is a ghost town and impoverished
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was incredible, the food was unbelievable, and the service was great! My flight got in very late, and they kindly just brought me straight up to my room so I didn't need to check in. It was just "here's your room, check in at the front desk in the morning. And don't miss breakfast!" After a long and frustrating travel experience, that was the best thing I ever could have hoped for! The room was perfectly clean, with lovely finishes, and the balcony overlooking the ocean was amazing. The staff spoke a variety of languages, which was useful, and provided a useful introduction to the town and where to get anything I needed. And to add, the town and the beach were lovely. I felt largely ignored as a tourist, which I loved-no one was hassling me, but I never felt out of place. I intend to go back to Tarrafal again and again!
Cons: Nothing.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very spacy appartment perfect for a family with children. Close to city center and beach.
Cons: Bad internet / wi-fi in the room.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was bread, marmelade, cheese, ham, banana, joghurt, coffe, tea. You can always ask for more. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The room was very very clean and every day room service that change towl or rug in the bathroom when needed. Fridge was working. Furniture was not new, but ok. Windows had gaze net to safe the room from mosquitoes. The rooftop terasse was very good to enjoy the evening. You can bring your own snacks and drinks. It was possible to use the lines in the back of the roof for drying some clothes. We did not spend much time at the beach, but diving nearby (diving school with a great housereef for makro-photography opposite of former King Fisher hotel). Very safe location next to the big church and nice park nearby. You can reach Taxi stand, big market and biggest supermarket (TATA supermarket) by feed. Recommendation for food is Alto Mira Pizza.
Cons: Would be good to include air condition in the room price. The staff speaks mostly french, so be prepared to use google translator. But they do their best to fullfill your wishes in any kind of way.
6.7 Good
Pros: The hotel is very clean and is located exactly at the main square, the beach is 5 min walk.
Cons: The breakfast was a bit poor (with no fresh juice), the rooms are very basic.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Good location, nice rooms and good value for price. Cool rooftop terrace
Cons: The room smelled a bit when we arrived... Needed to open all the windows and ventilation
4.2 Okay
Pros: Philip is a very gentle guide for tours/excursions - I can strongly recommend him. You need to ask for him at the reception. The cleaning personal is gentle and friendly (although they can't speak english). We shortened our stay by 1 day and got the refund. It was handled gently. We also lost the room keys - it was handled gently by paying 25 €
Cons: We went there 10 days. Maurice is very moody. If you have some unexpected requests, he will eventually shout at you without reason. The breakfast is always the same and very cheap. The price is too high for that level. A former employee said, it was hard to work there to please the owners, and he got only 100€ per month. As most of the former said, the internet will be shut down often at will.. You need to go to the 1st floor and plug in the router yourself. It is very loud at night, the waterpump makes terrible noise, if any toilet or water of the house is used. No English language available. Maurice refuses to speak, but seems to understand. There is no room with a window facing outside! You need to go to the terasse. There is only one room key for 2 persons. You need to pay 50% in advance, be careful for long booking.

Pros: Soooooo clean! Super friendly and helpful staff central too
