The story is fascinating and huge credit to the owners for rebuilding the hotel so soon after the volcanic devastation. The floor is still very warm, even hot, as the lava deep below has yet to cool. Good food and a selection of beers and wine, including the owner's own brew. We spent a night here before climbing the volcano... More

Came here as part of my honeymoon and had a wonderful couple of nights at the base of a volcano, which we climbed. The food is great, and the hosts are exceptionally friendly and helpful. It's quite basic but that's to be expected. Our only gripe was that the bed was VERY creaky so we struggled to sleep, but otherwise... More

Casa Marisa is the only hotel in Chã das Caldeiras thats been rebuilt since the volcanic eruption in 2014 devastated Portela and Bangueira. The rooms all open onto a shared courtyard, with en-suite bathroom. The restaurant is fantastic, with a "plate of the day" for 700 ecv that can easily feed two and every wine produced on the island of... More

Very good local food. Most of the village was destroyed during the last eruption and it is therefore a very special place. If... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa Marisa 2.0 is constructed over a huge lava stream of the recent volcanic eruption of 2014. during this eruption Casa Marisa was totally destroyed. The reconstruction was finished 10 months after destruction of the original house. It is the only establishment in the Caldeiras with 24/7 electricity (solar) and warm water (solar, geothermic). The floors of the house are still warm from the cooling lava. It is perfectly suited for the start of the most popular excursions and professional information and organisation of all kind of activities are the expertise of the team. The activities range from easy walks up to professional niveau climbing and alpinism. Breakfast service starts from 5:30am! We speak Portuguese, Creole, German, English and French - and we do speak with you. The size of 14 rooms and a huge restaurant still provides a familial atmosphere and gives us time to contact all our clients personally. Cha Das Caldeiras is a remote, simple and very authentic place - and so is Casa Marisa. The luxury of the house is an excellent kitchen and local vine products and a very personal service, not luxury suites. We do give maximum attention to be sustainable. Almost all our food is from the rural products of the Caldeiras and the Islands of Cabo Verde, Marisa and all our team are born and grown up in the Caldeiras and we reuse water, all bottles and our energy is 100% renewable. We are happy to be established again in the Caldeiras and look forward to meeting all the inspiring people from all over the world. ... more   less
