Lar do Ouro is a beautiful guest house, with an excellent service and comfortable en-suite rooms. The overall place is cozy and is structured around a nice inner garden with a small pool, where all rooms and facilities are located. The restaurant and living room are open to the garden, providing a relaxant and nice environment.
Lar do Ouro is located a little bit far from the center of Ponta, but in a quiter place than most other lodges. Please weight "far" relative to the small size of Ponta: in fact it is no more than 5-7 minutes walking away from the center of Ponta and 10 minutes walking from the beach.
The normal rate includes an excellent breakfast and a very good 3-course dinner, with an excellent presentation and service. Teresa and Janice, the owners, are helpful and efficient, and it is clear that they are almost always present and that they run the place carefully and taking care of all small details.
In short, a very nice place with an excellent quality/price ratio.
