Staff and owner are very sympathetic and helpful. The dishes from Bahia at their restaurant is a good choice. There is a pleasant green grass area and the walk at the back of the hotel to the beach is a nice one.

Spent a night there in April, 2014 we enjoyed id do much that we promptly asked to return a few days later. However, we then had the un-agreable surprise to be requested to pay 350 reals per night instead of 250, the reason being that prices with a celebrated internet booking agency were far more... competitive! Other than this, the... More

Very good crew, close to the beach and a nice and relaxing pool! The other makes you feel at home! The room was ok, but better than other hotels of the region. The breakfeast was good with lots of fruits and cakes. If you are not looking for a resort, it might be a good choice!

Since the beggining, the negotiation was done by email with very quickly answers. All the employees were very polited and happy to provide the service, and the location of the hotel is amazing, walking 5 minutes up to the main street or 5 minutes to the natural pools. There`s a small, but good pool and a beautifull garden.

We chose the hotel purely through Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. Really clean, airy and spacious feel to the hotel (and the rooms). Ideally, make sure you get a room overlooking the pool or the garden (although not a ground floor room, as people can see right in and you are more likely to be woken by early... More
