“Very nice place”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

We stayed for a week in this pousada. The place is well taken care of, the owner, Valerio, is an Italian expat who manages the place with the help of his sister. Rooms were clean, and cleaned well daily. The place has a little pool, which the kids loved and several little tables around the deck. Valerio will make you a caiperinha if you ask (highly recommended in my opinion) - you just need to press a little button at the bar to summon him if he isn't around.

We enjoyed the breakfast, which was typical but quite well done for such a small place. When we visited, the clientele was a mix of Brazilians and for some reason Argentinians.

The pousada is walking distance from the beach with the biggest waves, Praia Grande, and the best beach in the area for the afternoon sun. Lots of surfers to watch and fun to body surf in the waves.

All in all, highly recommended.

Room Tip: The best rooms are the ones on the very top - keep in mind that all the stairs will keep you in shap...

We stayed in this beautiful pousada two weeks and we really enjoyed. The pousada is very beautiful and there's great attention to every detail, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and very clean. Very nice are also the outsider space with swimming pool and barbecue, and the breakfast room.
The staff was really nice and kind, and the breakfast was so good, lots of variety of cakes, fruits, and good coffee!!
The pousada is also very close to one of the most beautiful beaches of Arraial, 'Playa Grande', and to many of the facilities of the town.
We really suggest to spend some days here, and we hope to come back soon.
Many thanks!!!!

We stayed at Recanto do Atalaia and really enjoyed our stay.

The staff , Valerio and Guida are very helpfull. They served a very good breakfast and the bedrooms and installations are new and clean.

Stay closes to Praia Grande and Pontal do Atalaia, a nice view and sunset! Stay a little bit far from Praia dos Anjos and Praia do Forno, something like a 15 minute walk.

We liked very much our stay and we congratulate Valerio for his service.

Reviewed 29 July 2011

We stayed here for 4 nights during our one-year world trip. As for price quality ratio it has been the best place we have stayed. All facilities you might need, delicious breakfast, super clean and above all: owners that know what service is. Really friendly, always there to help and aiming to give you the best stay possible. The location is not the closest to the best of beaches (although Praya Grande is next door), but since Arraial do Cabo is a small village, it is still within walking distance. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Higher quality rooms become available for lower prices when there lots of vacancies
