Quite nice "pousada", bed & breakfast style. It is located at the "Praia da Espera" beach in Itacimirim, a nice place, not crowded (at least at the period we stayed at - September) and with no high volume music (thanks God).
A not-so-good thing about the place is the cleanliness of the beach/sand, especially right in front of the "pousada". During our stay we noticed that there were some used cans, coconuts and plastic bags in the sand, but neither public services or "pousada's" employees had it cleaned. It was not too much trash, but additional caring is welcome. Another thing: we saw some dogs freely circulating in the beach (seemed to belong to locals as they were there almost everyday) so, if you are a beachwalker, be careful when walking on the sand for not stepping in... dog's **** (we saw some, unfortunately).
The "pousada" has a swimming pool - not big but nice - and a restaurant (average food and slightly high prices - breakfast is good and included in room rate). The owners administer the place by themselves so they are always nearby (for this reason I expected a quite better warming atmosphere, which was not true at times).
About the room, we stayed at number 12, which is beach-facing. It is the room to be stayed at if you want to be next to sand and want to sleep hearing the waves, but due to the proximity to the beach and the winds, it is very humid... Make sure to have the windows opened during the day for the air to circulate.
About the waves, they are strong so take care when going into water, and do not allow children to go alone.
