Casa Aquario is runned by 84 years “young” Henny from the Netherlands. The pensao is famous for the dinners! 3 courses with very good wines. The pensao itself is rather basic but clean and cosy to sit on the veranda or central room. If you like luxury look for another place to be. Situated at a small beach at a 10 min walk from Tarrafal centre. Henny knows everything about Cabo Verde and you’ll like having a talk about his rich life. The pensao has very good wifi. Breakfast is good and if you go out for a hike Henny arranges picknick and an aluguer that picks you up at the pensao. This pensao gives you the feeling to be al real guest and friend! Thank you, Henny! By the way: just having a fantastic dinner is possible too. Go there around 11 in the morning to arrange!

We stayed in 9 different hotels in Cape Verde all of which were good,very good, or had something to commend them....except this one. The website is misleading to say the least. The plumbing was broken, the doors and windows did not open, or close, a dirty rag served as a curtain. The much claimed cooking turned from disappointment at dinner to disbelief at the dessert (tinned fruit salad with condensed milk). The owner is manipulative, familiar, and implausible. We canceled and left after one bitten night. This was also the most expensive of all 9 hotels.

Response from henny k, Proprietário at Casa Aquario

Onze ramen zijn schuiframen. De deuren hebben een totale glasruit met een keurig gordijn ervoor. De ramen hebben kleine groene gordijntjes en geen oude lappen. Zie vele rapporten over ons restaurant. Was men gewend zij eigen ontlasting te eten? Dessert: gemengd fruit (blik) in room, suiker en rum. Casa-aquario is een eenvoudig familiair pension met een klasserewstaurant. Dit is een ontwikkelingsprojekt, een kleine school voor koks
