This is the perfect place to stay while in Itacaré. The hotel has great atmosphere, the rooms are clean, spacious and the service is impeccable. It has a restaurante led by a great chef, some of the best food we had was right there at the hotel. I highly recommend it.

After staying at a couple of other places in itacare and not liking them I stumbled into this tiny boutique hotel. It’s oceanfront and 2 minutes from the center. Small and quaint, simple and modern, very clean and super chill. In fact it’s so relaxing and chill that I wanted to hike to the beach I ended up just lounging around the sofa overlooking the tiny pool and large terrace area listening to the music and reading all day. Just being barefoot in shorts all day was just what I needed I just didn’t want to leave. The people here are all very sweet. The food is great, so is the breakfast, and when the irony comes f being tired of just relaxing hits you, you can walk out the front door and the loud vibrant world of itacarè will welcome you back.

Exceptional ambience, delightful staff (Fernanda as our hostess) and amazing dishes (Madrugada was our chef). Felt like we were the only two people in the restaurant. A very exclusive experience that will make all other meals harder.

No matter where I travel I look for small, stylish hotels that fit the ultimate definition of boutique. This hotel is all that and more. Perfect location, great food, stylish decor, spacious rooms, perfect service. We arranged our dates to fit their availability because I wanted to make sure I could stay there. Itacare is filled with less expensive pousadas and this is one of the few hotels in its class. Make sure to stay if you’re lucky enough to travel to this part of the world!
