We enjoyed great breakfasts with fresh fruit, fresh rolls and amazing coffee. Our room was spotless and the bed extremely comfortable. The hosts, who speak excellent English, were extremely helpful and advised us...

Stayed here for four nights sightseeing in the local area. The pousada is ideally situated with easy access to both Itapoan and Salvador. Easy access from the airport.

It takes about 5 minutes to walk to the beach. It is clean and comfortable. The staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast was great. During weekends, the beach is crowded and they are really loud. If you are looking for a quiet time, beware of this situation. You can find some nice restaurants around the hotel. It's a good value...

Pleasant Pousada located near the beach and a relatively short distance from the airport (15 minutes). Pleasant staff, there is a nice pool, good breakfast; the orange juice was particularly nice. The bed was comfortable and provided a good nights sleep. The property was clean and well maintained, restaurants and shops nearby.

We stayed here for one week in October 2013. The place is clean and tidy, the staff is friendly and helpful and breakfast is almost too good. We might have put on some weight of all those tasty bakery and fried bananas and other things we aren't able to verify - but still taste good! However, if you want peace...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Pousada Encanto de Itapoan over the carnival period and it was amazing!!!

The room was very small compared to the other places we stayed in, especially given the price and location. Didn't really think it was value for money but it's a good place for people who just want a place to sleep. On a good note, Daniel who worked at the pousada was very friendly and helpful. The location was OK......

Spent 5 days at the pousada in April 2012 with family of 8 people. Extremely friendly, very serviceminded staff. Very comfortable if you want to see beaches north of Salvador but don't want to go to Praia da Forte, which is waste of time. Quiet neighbourhood and chance to mingle the locals.
