Friendly and clean guesthouse a few steps from the beach. Basic furniture, good shower, ok breakfast. Wifi in the breakfast room. Ask for a room with a terrace overlooking the bay. Overall a good place for a beach vacation.

My wife and I stayed here during May and there were no other guests in the hotel, so it was extremely peaceful and relaxing. We also stayed in room 10 which had the ocean view from the patio. Excellent location, with just a short walk to the beach. Also close to the local restaurants (there are only a handful). Staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was good. There is no wifi from the rooms, however it I sure available downstairs in the dining area. Highly recommend.

I stayed in room number 10 with an ocean view. It was a generous sized room with a double bed and lots of hanging space for clothes plus a big balcony. The bathroom was clean and had a nice shower with good water pressure compared to some of the other places I stayed in CV.

The breakfast is included in the price and it is served in a lovely breakfast room with a view of the ocean. It is a buffet style with continental breakfast including cheese, meat, bread, eggs, fresh fruits, yoghurts and fruit juices.

The hotel is less than 5 minutes walk to a beautiful beach and is surrounded by small local restaurants and bars. The main town for amenities such as banks, pharmacy etc, is also 5 minutes walking.

Would definitely stay here again - the staff are very helpful and friendly and can recommend and organise many things for you to do while in Tarrafal!

We arrived (me and my wife) late afternoon in Tarrafal. There is not that much choice in terms of accommodation in Tarrafal and all the top ranked hotel/guesthouses were full. The fourth place we visited with no vacancy recommended us to check Tarrafal residence. It is located in a small alley. By the way the location on the map is wrong. It refers to some place in Praia.

Rooms: simple but nice. There's a TV (not necessary to my own opinion) and a small fridge in the room. Bathroom is ok. We had a balcony facing the bay. Perfect if you want to spend some quiet time reading with a nice landscape. You fall asleep to the sound of the waves..

Breakfast : quite good. I am of course comparing to what you can expect in Cape verde. Eggs, cake, break, cheese, fruits, all tasty and good enough for me.

Service: No complains. nice and friendly staff

We even came back for 2 days at the end of our trip.

In conclusion, according to the market this is one of the best option to my own opinion. If you are more in your early twenties and looking for a backpacker or youth hostel atmosphere (meeting people) it may not be your first choice but for us (late thirties) who were just looking for a minimum of confort it was perfect.
