“Great for a Romantic Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

We were very pleasantly surprised by the comfort, cleanliness and location of this pousada. The location was fantastic, a 5 minute walk to the beach. The room was fantastic with 2 verandas, a hydromassage and a very large couch on one of the verandas. The staff were always very attentive and helpful. There is free parking on premises. The only minor drawbacks were the lack of television stations, and that the wifi was very poor.

I would highly recommend this pousada to anyone staying in Praia do Forte

Room Tip: Upper floor suite with hydromassage is the way to go...

We stayed at this pousada 1 week in November. The rooms were simple and quite small, although very clean and tidy. The only negative point to this hotel would be the noise in the evening and night. We traveled with a small child and noise from the car park next door was waking us up at night.

However the food was great, pool was lovely. And the hotel is in a excellent location - about 5 min walk to the village and 12 min walk to the beach. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Excellent pousada for those looking for quiet but not isolated at Praia do Forte. Installations are top quality but still with a rustic charm. Breakfast is divine - everything fresh and delicious. The rooms are well equipped, isolated from noise and very comfortable. Almost everything is at waling distance, including the beaches.

Room Tip: Rooms at ground floor have a charming varanda that opens to the pool, but even though are quiet and...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

My partner and I spent 2 nights in this very pleasant, rustic Pousada. It was just a few minutes walk to the village, 10 minutes walk to the beach. Very good location, our room was very clean and comfortable, with a frigobar, airconditioning, cable TV, and a balcony with a hamock, overlooking the lovely swimming pool. All the staff was very friendly and the staff at reception speak English!! The breakfast was plentiful and fresh and very nice. They also have a good restaurant and Bar where we enjoyed sitting in the warm evenings sipping very tasty caipirinha. We wish we had more time to stay longer and we definetely recommend this Pousada, especially for young families. Kids really enjoyed the swimming pool and consequently could be a little noisy as kids do on holidays . They even have a small play area for very young children with toys. We highly reccomend a visit to Praia do Forte which is a beautiful holiday destination in my opinion, and stay at this nice Pousada.

This Hotel was about 5 minutes from the village centre and the beach and we felt the location was fine but maybe it would have been better to stay more centrally and next to the beach where we could have had the benefit of sea breezes.......The Hotel was spotless and comfortable with friendly helpful staff. The breakfast was just Ok and no evening dinner seemed to be on offer as the Hotel was quite empty and quiet. Nice pool to relax by.

4 Night stay while on vacation in area. Room was a small king bed overlooking pool on second floor. Property has a rustic feel with a lot of wood, very clean and comfortable. Water had a foul smell from time to time but we used an air freshener to help, Room had a small fridge which was very useful for our bevs.

They serve a beautiful breakfast each morning with a lot to choose from, fresh fruits, breads and hot foods choices. We ate at the on site restaurant 3 times and enjoyed each meal very much.

Service by staff was stellar with standouts being Weydson and all front desk staff. I can't say enough positive things about everyone here it made our stay just perfect! I would highly suggest this convenient located pousada while visiting the Praia Do Forte area. Within a short walk to the town as well :)

Room Tip: Try to score a larger room if possible and within budget, ours was small. Face pool.

My husband stayed at Pousada Casa do Forte for five days. It was the rainy season in Praia do Forte (August) and it rained every day! We were happy that we stayed at this comfortable Pousada. The room is not the biggest (we were a couple with a 3yo and a 1yo baby) but it was cozy enough, with a good shower room, cable TV and a nice veranda with a hammock facing the pool (we were on the ground floor) and right next to the bar. It was just what we needed for with the kids and all the rain we couldn't contemplate going out at night, but because we had this area and the bar so at hand we could put the kids to sleep and still enjoy some nice time together, have a few drinks and relax by the pool. Breakfast is just so good and plentiful that we could not have lunch before 3PM. Great variety of regional food and morning classics: cereals, cakes, bread (all sorts), cheese, ham, fruits, quiches, tapiocas, yogurts and puddings. Absolutely fabulous. We took our portable sound system and that made our stay even nicer. The pousada has this homely felling and the children have a play area with some toys right at the entrance, attached to the breakfast area, so that we could give our kids breakfast and then let them play and have some time for our own breakfast. The staff was always helpful and they know a lot about the area. They gave us the necessary tips to enjoy the dry hours of our days (not too many, unfortunately). The pousada is so close to the local village we just went to the main strip of shops everyday. The nice beaches can be reached by 'bicitaxy', a kind of hickshaw that costs you 30 reais (around £10) to take you there and back. You can walk to the nicest beaches but that would take some time, it is not that close. However, the beach where Projeto Tamar is, the one that hosts the sea turtles and their nests, is a five minute walk, if that. I will definitely come back if I have the chance.

Room Tip: couples with kids should go with the ground floor rooms facing the pool: you can enjoy a few drinks...
