Nice hotel on the beach. The rooms are spacious and beautifull. The 2 pools are very nice and the restaurant has good food on reasonable prices. The perfect place to relax! The staff is relaxed and friendly, but most of them don't speak english. Wifi works well, everything is very clean. There is a table tennis and (dutch) books and plays to choose from. We really had a nice stay here.

Positive: friendly staff, the flowers on our bed when we arrived, nice clean room, great environment, spotted a lot of turtleheads while taking a walk on the beach.

Negative: waiting an hour for a spaghetti bolognese in the restaurant, quite isolated if you don't have a car.

My husband and I spent 2 wonderful days at this beautiful and well organized pousada. High quality service, excellent breakbast and great restaurant at very reasonable prices. The infinite pool is very nice and the endless beach breeze is very relaxing. Will definetly return!

We stayed at this pousada for a few days over Christmas.

There is nothing bad to say about the room, which was clean and had good air-conditioning, in addition to a very welcome hammock on the porch.

The only less than perfect aspect was that since the place was very busy for Christmas we felt that the restaurant sometimes got a bit too crowded and the service got slowed down. Also the staff, despite being polite enough, have very rudimentary English skills (most of the clients were Brazilian though, so I guess that makes sense).

The beach outside the pousada is very nice to walk along, and there are very few people. There are two swimming pools that are very well kept. It is possible to walk to the small town nearby to by groceries.

This place is secure, cozy, green, quiet and well-looked-after.

We loved the bungalows and think they allow for much greater appreciation of the tropical landscape than hotel rooms.

If you just want to relax and be with yourself and the nature, this place is for you.

The only weak element seems to be the hotel restaurant. The wait for meals is rather long and the only meals they seem to make really well are the traditional dishes. I would not venture into other dishes again, like pastas or salads.

A tip: there is a large supermarket with everything just across the highway.

Room Tip: Bungalows near the entrance are quieter.

While travelling around Brazil, the quality and size of the various pousadas varied enormously. Praia das Ondas is at the top end of that scale, without being expensive. Located in Itacimirim, it's close enough to Praia do Forte (the nearby touristy town with lots of restaurants and shops), yet located remotely enough to be truly peaceful.

The room we booked (the Superior Suite) was only slightly more expensive than other rooms, but the double balcony and sea view made it an easy choice. The room was very spacious and the solar heated water never posed an issue, as we always had hot water! Wifi was included as well, which is very helpful if you're travelling around. We did have an issue with our TV and safe not working when we arrived, but these were fixed very quickly!

The pousada has it's own beach access and a pool with differing depths to accommodate adults and children alike. One note, you will need to bring your own towels for the pool, as these are not provided by the pousada.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the restaurant for both the included breakfast and the additional dinner menu, especially if you don't want to drive to a neighbouring town for food.

The only downside I could find was that there was rarely anyone at reception that could speak any English, although this didn't really cause too many issues!

Praia das Ondas was without question the best place we stayed during our whole trip to Brazil, so don't hesitate to give it a try. Also, the pictures provided by the management don't do it justice - it really is a lovely place!

Room Tip: For the additional money, the Superior Suite is well worth it, especially as our first floor room ha...
