“Gem in the wild........”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

The first thing you notice is the view, perched high on the cliff top overlooking the ocean, location is first class.
The location gives the whole experience a calming feel, you really know you are on holidays.
The 6 pousadas in total are well appointed with very comfortable king beds and new bathrooms.
The beauty is in its simplicity........
If you happen to catch Darren the owner, he can be a great tour guide for the local area (and a great host!), as he knows all the best beaches to visit and the local food, from cheap to expensive.
Tibul do Sul is anything you want it to be, chilled out or party time.

Rio Mar would have to be one of the nicest most comfortable place to stay. We really felt like we were home with the gorgeous staff ready to help you with anything. The rooms are plush not to mention the super large and super comfortable beds!!
The best thing about it all is the picturesque view from the minute you rise to the amazing sunsets every day! Truly paradise and I cannot wait to return.

This hotel is made up of 6 posh beach huts with an amazing view over the sea. I stayed in one of the bigger huts at the front and my first impression was 'wow'. It has a king size bed inside with a small wicker table and chairs for two, flat screen TV, wet room, fridge, wardrobes down one wall, a safe to put your valuables and a wet room with shower. They use all white linen for the extra touch of chic and the shower is solar powered making them Eco conscious too.

Outside of the hut you have your own little terrace with table and chairs for meals al fresco and a hammock.

There is a small but beautifully maintained pool with sunbeds for those days when all you feel like doing is lazing round the pool. Breakfast is served every morning by the pool which consists of traditional fruit, bread, ham, cheese, tea, coffee etc. There is also a small bar area by the pool which I can only presume serves cocktails at sunset ( in high season) where you can sit and watch the beautiful sunset of an evening. I was there out of season so it was lovely and quiet and the weather wasn't quite as hot but still in the 30's!!!

All the staff are lovely and friendly and the guy who part owns it, Darren is lovely. Many of them also speak English so they can help you with anything you need during your stay. It was one of my friends birthdays while we were there and Eliza, the housekeeper made her a beautiful traditional cake with chocolate and coconut..yum.

There is free wifi in the reception area which is beautifully decorated with cushions with monkeys on to reflect the little monkeys who come down on the trees to visit you for breakfast.

All in all, I had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend it to anyone who likes a bit of luxury whilst away. I would even contemplate going back there just to stay at the Rio Mar again!!

Room Tip: I had a sneaky peak into one of the 'smaller' double rooms and it was just as beautiful as m...
