Let's be fair. There is no other place around to compare this pousada with. But don't get me wrong, this place has many great highlights. Nice location, helpful and attentive staff, great pool and very well maintained. Perhaps a little less rusticness in the rooms might level up the overall comfort, but nevertheless, I do understand that a small hotel,...

Landing by night on this sand beach by the moonlight was an incredible start. From there on it was a dream stay : canoeing on the laguna, crossing the peninsula by food, enjoying the great meals and feeling welcome by the French-brazilian couple that is now owning the place (but maybe not for long)

I'll break this review into 2 1. The Pousada: - Yves and his staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. We predominately dealt with one young man who served us...

The location on the riverside is almost perfect with a magnificent view! We had a double booking on arrival and our friends had to stay in another pousada. The owner resolved the problem correctly. The food is a bit overpriced and so are the rooms, comparing with other places with similar facilities on the north coast of Bahia. But there...

What an amazing place to spend your vacations... This is the best located pousada in and around town! Owned by Yves, a Frenchman, and his beautiful and great Brazilian wife with their 2 kids, they not only helped us get to this marvellous remote location, but welcomed us as if we were friends. We spend an amazing week their, enjoying...
