I stayed at the Pousada das Chas for New Years 2014. The staff at the hotel were overwhelmingly friendly, helpful, supportive, etc. In a country where people don't earn tips and service is sub par to the rest of the world, they really stand out.
The rooms, however I would give 2 stars. They are very clean yes, but they are extremely small and basic. We had a 3 person room and luckily the 3rd person cancelled because I have no idea in what planet you could fit a third person in the room, with an extra bed. The rooms are tiny and very basic. Yes they have a flat screen TV and fridge, but that is it. I felt like I was staying in a hostel. The website definitely looks nicer than the rooms actually are. The common areas are nice downstairs and outside, but if I paid $5000 BRL for 4 nights, I demand a higher quality of room. I don't care if it was high season, this place is WAY OVERPRICED.
Also the pool is in the middle of a parking lot....yes the place is closer to the beach and they provide free chairs and umbrellas but they could really do something to improve the pool, i mean maybe some plants around it? Also due to water shortages (yes, not their fault) the outdoor shower wasn't working during the day so we could not rinse our feet after the beach.
All in all, I was not impressed with the Pousada das Chas in terms of rooms and thus I will not be going back. The 3 stars given because their great service somewhat makes up for the basic and overpriced rooms.
