We very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Strela, although a bit hard to find at first the place is well maintained, clean and comfortable. The sea is just outside and a short walk to beaches suitable for swimming.
Good food offered , breakfast is hearty and tasty as well.

Very clean and cosy guest house with a very nice terrace on the roof with sea view where a good breakfast is served. Very friendly hospitability. The young lady at the reception was very helpful giving us very good advices. Unfortunately the area around is still under costruction.
The swimmingpool in the Villa is super small and situated in the shadow but having the sea at your disposal it's not so important !!!

Friendly guesthouse with good terras on the roof. We stayed for three nights and it was very relaxed. You can get your drinks from the fridge. Paul makes good diners. They arranged a driver to make a days trip around the north part of the island. One thing: the view at the sea is good, the neighbourhood is a dissaster: most houses are not ready - so this is a desolate area.

Dear Yolande

Thank you very much for your review! We are happy you liked your stay with us. Our neighbourhood we try to work with the local government but it is very hard to improve anything. Have a good spring!

When we first arrived in Tarrafal we felt we had arrived into a building site which essentially it is with many unfinished buildings & roads. However Casa Strela is on the outskirts of the town & there wasn't much building work going on during our stay. We found a pleasant walk into town along the coast via Santiago Lounge Bar overloooking the Atlantic to the beaches. A great place for an afternoon drink & sundowner.
I had a lovely room called Viana with en suite & a balcony on the first floor.
Breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace also with an ocean view.
Good to have hot water & wifi although the signal was not strong enough to Skype. What did we do before the internet???
Eileen from Slovakia looked after us well.
We had use of the swimming pool at the Villa Strela although I feel it's wrong to have a swimming pool on an island where there is a shortage of water unless it is filled with salt water but I don't think it was!
Did one trek in Serra Malagueta with Adi booked through Casa Strela. He also does mountain biking tours. Worth doing. It is not advisable to go trekking on your own even to the lighthouse due to muggings!! Try & arrange in advance.
Thanks for a lovely stay over my birthday!!

Dear Michele

Thank you very much for your lovely review. We are glad that you had a nice time in Tarrafal. In Tarrafal we have a confortable situation with alot of water source in the mountains (huge groundwater lakes) so that's why we did decide to have the pool with sweet water.

hope you had a good trip back home.

Sunny greetings from Tarrafal
Andreas
