This property is an odd combination of good and downright odd. The rooms are fine, although one would not expect to see the paint peeling so quickly on what appears to be a new building, and the on-site staff friendly and quick to help. The oddities, however, are more numerous. There was one small ceiling light in a large room,... More

The town of Tarrafal is horrible - squalid and over-run with stray dogs.

I cannot praise the Cachoeira Hotel staff enough for their hospitality and friendliness! My four friends and I stayed there for five memorable days. I had initially booked a double room but when I saw the view of Monti Graciosa from one of the suite, I knew I wanted to have breakfast on the balcony with that view everyday and... More
