Always stay at Lar do Ouro when I visit Ponta - which is about 3-4 times a year either in holidays with the family or for work. No luxury, just down to earth hospitality, clean and safe rooms and an excellent breakfast. Never had any complaints.

The guesthouse rooms are simple but more than adequate. They are beautifully presented as is the rest of the lodge. The food was good for both vegetarians and carnivores alike and the staff were friendly and helpful. The lodge is in a good, quiet location in Ponto do Ouro. The town itself was a great place to visit in order...

“We stayed near opposite the pool - it was fine. There is no fitness centre or room service as its a bed and breakfast and you would not expect this. A good choice if you want peace and quiet and don't mind a walk to the beach or village or are keen to hire a quad bike. Its away from the beach .”
