This place can be somewhat frustrating after seeing the photos. The area is enclosed by high walls, since security is a big concern in the area. In fact, the streets around are not really safe, particularly after dark. The area inside is a bit cramped. The parking area is small, but I managed to park inside, The attendant keeps all the car keys and moves them around as needed. The room was very small, with a minimal space around the bed (see photos). It was barely enough for one person. Same thing with the bathroom, too small. The only opening of the room is a glass French door/window, so you can't have daylight and privacy at the same time. There is a small swimming pool, and an area for breakfast, which was OK, nothing special. Everything was very clean. There is free Wi-Fi, but the reception in my room was iffy, so I had to stay in the common areas to get a good signal. The beach is quite a walk away, on poorly maintained streets with lots of trash around. I found that appalling, since this is the area with the largest concentration of hotels, and tourist trade in general, in the city. There are some restaurants within walking distance, and none of them are remarkable. In short, the pousada is not that great, kind of simple and cramped, and the location is not that great either. On the other hand, the owners were very friendly and helpful, constantly asking what I needed. When I asked for a rental car, they had one delivered to me in 15 minutes flat. And I drove happily all around the beautiful coastline of the state :) So the people made the difference. Otherwise, I would have found the entire stay somewhat disappointing.
