Stayed for 3 nights in Suite 102. On entering you were met with a large sitting room with an amazing fresco on the ceiling. The suite did not look to the outside so they have created a window "box" (more like a box with a skylight about 3 x 4) that can be accessed from the sitting room or bedroom so this would be the only light coming into the room. Large bathroom and bedroom. Very clean and well equipped. Several terraced areas were easily accessible from our room.
The outstanding thing about this Pousada would be the staff. They are engaging, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.....they warrant at least 5 stars.
CONS: there are steps up the bedroom areas which may not suit everyone (especially in the middle of the night!!). All electrical shuts down when lights are turned out....this was not good for my spouse who uses a BIPAP machine. The staff tried to help, but we ended up unscrewing all bulbs in the room (several times otherwise no lights) so we could sleep. The room had a heavily perfumed smell every day, which we found to be somewhat overpowering. The safe indicated "low battery" on the 2nd day and would not close, however because it was a weekend it could not be fixed....again the staff stepped in to come up with a solution that met our needs as we did not want to leave our valuables at the front desk. Laundry given before 10:00 am is guaranteed back in 24 hours, but ours was only given back to us late on our last night after over 35 hours & our asking 2x so we could pack. Lastly, given that this was a suite & costs are higher than the standard rooms, we felt we should have had a window.
