The Pousada has everything you need for a vacation. It's rooms are clean, with a balcony, the breakfast is good, the staff are friendly and helpful, especially front desk. The swimming pool is good enough for a dip after a hot day on the beach. It's location is perfect, as it is neither right on the beach nor is it in the town centre. It's close enough to both though, so really convenient. The car hire is next door and so is a supermarket.
We spent a very happy week in the Pousada and can recommend this place wholeheartedly

We had a wonderful experience. The hotel staff is super nice, but this was not unusual in Brazil where everyone treated us well. Most people do not speak English in Brazil but that did not get in the way of a good stay. The rooms are "rustic" with hard floors, '70s style, and while the size is adequate, they are small. We had two of our best meals there at this hotel. The service and the setting are ordinary, but the food was simply great. They offer free tea and coffee at 4pm daily. Internet access is free. If you are considering this hotel, remember that this is a resort type place and is located within a village like setting with some unpaved roads and when it rains it is a mess (but we considered that a part of the fun! People walk to the village center which consist of numerous shops and restaurants to walk around and shop. The mood is informal with 95% of people walking in flip flops. Two negatives about this area and this hotel if that there is no swimming pool and the beach appears rocky in some areas at low tide. It had rained for three days before we got there so the ocean was choppy, windy, and muddy. Still we saw people swimming. In low tide, pools are water are created within the rocks which is a marvel to explore on foot and see small creatures. The other negative is the cab ride cost of about US$100 each way to Salvador airport (65km). Our driver spoke English which was a nice change and the cost was small as compared to our overall expenditures in Brazil!
Loved everything, from the champagne offered when checking in to the late check-out made possible by the very friendly staff at the reception desk. The place is simply beautiful and even when it's fully packed with tourists it's still possible to find a very peaceful place to enjoy on your own and relax, as it is a huge property.
Dinner is absolutely fantastic with the best local tastes and some international cuisine as well. Wine menu has a large variety of offers to suit all pockets. And the very talented lady playing guitar and singing during dinner at the GOA restaurant is an invaluable complement to the whole gastronomic experience.
Can't wait to come back to this place.
