“Best Location in Morro”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

just returned from Brazil and spent two nights in Pousada Passargada. I wish we had more time. It is in the best location. Just top of the harbour where the boats from Salvador arrive. So no need for a taxi ( a strong man with a wheelbarrow!!). We stayed in a master suit and it was worth the extra. The room was huge, massive bathroom and a balcony with a hammock and most amazing view. We slept with the doors open to the sound of the ocean. The breakfast is the best as they cook all their pastries, cakes and bread in house by lovely ladies. Always smiling.

and the infinity swimming pool is the best part of the pousada. Great for a drink and sunset watching!!

Best sunset hotel in Morro, pool area is top and totally worth spending an afternoon by the pool! Room was comfortable and clean but they have to change the lighting - the room has the same light as you would find in an industrial factory hall (cold white light). Overall very friendly and convenient and would always stay there again if you need to be close to the centre/port.

The locations is one of the good things about this bed & breakfast. You are very close to the small downtown and have many restaurant options nearby. The sunset is incredible and ou have the view everyday. Try to get an apartment in front of the sea and you guarantee the sunset just for you. The swimming pool has a great landscape and you will find terrific to use it during the sunset.
The prices of drinking is fair and you will not feel bad when asking for your third caipirinha. At night, the place is silent and you can sleep well.

The location is just perfect. Very close to the arrival dock and the view is just AMAZING! I have never seen a better pool, with an incomparable view and layout! It is close to the main area of Morro and also close to the beaches. Breakfast was perfect and many options! Our room was beautiful and very well kept (we stayed in room 4). Met the owner who is also very nice. I think the only negative are the front desk staff, they could be a little more pleasant and helpful! But overall, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!!

Overall this is a nice pousada. The location may not be for everyone, but for me it was perfect. It's one of the first pousadas you come to from the dock when you arrive in Morro, so if you pack light, you won't need to hire one of the "taxis" (wheelbarrows). A short walk to the main square and street with restaurants, but away from the hustle and bustle (relative for Morro :).

We stayed in the Suite Luxo by the pool. It has an excellent view from a spacious varanda with hammock and a little table and 2 chairs. It is, however, essentially an extension of the pool deck, so if anyone is at the pool there isn't a whole lot of privacy.

Breakfast for me was just average. Your standard Brazilian pousada selection of bread, cheese, fruit, and sweets. There are standard rooms, but going up to Luxo is probably worth it--the standard rooms look pretty dark. There is free Wi-Fi, but it's very slow.

Something else to keep in mind: if you visit Morro in the off season you'll get a cheaper deal on the room, but this is the time of the year when everyone does repair work. Not that you're going to want to spend a lot of time in your room, but in the off season it can rain quite a bit and we had a couple of unpleasant days with loud hammering and sawing starting early in the morning and stinky paint fumes wafting into the room.

Room Tip: Go for Luxo over Standard

This is a nice hotel because it has all the amenities you would expect plus good service and great food. The set back is its location, standing high on the hill top just as you arrive into the village. To go to the beach you have to make your way through the village everyday, the only reason why its location could be a plus is if you are coming for a few days only and want to buy stuff at the village.

I had the best tea time lunch here and it is impossible not to notice the effort they had in providing fresh fruit juices, home made sweet and salty baked pies, yoghurts and fresh bread, unlike other hotels wich have these delivered from bakeries or even bought from Valenca (a town 1 hour away). The rooms are comfortable and spacious, free internet is available, small swimmingpool for hotel guests only.
