2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
O Recanto do Arraial Pousada é sinônimo de tranquilidade, exclusividade, conforto e alegria em bem receber cada hóspede de maneira única e amorosa. Proporciona uma atmosfera romântica, sustentável e incrivelmente harmonizada com a natureza exuberante de seu belo jardim, com plantas tropicais e diversidade de pássaros. Possui uma arquitetura rústica, decoração exclusiva, de charme e bom gosto, com quadros de artistas locais, bem ao estilo das praias nordestinas. A valorização da identidade e cultura local, o respeito ao meio ambiente e o carinho em pequenos detalhes, são características que definem a hospitalidade da Recanto do Arraial Pousada. A pousada está localizada bem no centro do Arraial D’Ajuda, em uma rua bem tranquila, próximo a rua principal, que é a Rua Mucugê, onde está a maioria dos restaurantes, bares e lojas, que a noite recebe os turista que vão passear e aproveitar da excelente gastronomia local. Está bem próximo às praias, e também da praça da Igreja e Santuário de Nossa Senhora da Ajuda, onde é muito agradável e pitoresco um passeio ao fim de tarde, ou a noite para conhecer outros bares, lojas, cafés, e excelentes restaurantes, além de ver a bela vista atrás da Igreja, onde apreciam a lua nascer sentindo a brisa do mar, ouvir músicos de rua e de vez em quando, assistir rodas de capoeira.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent a week at this beautiful and peaceful pousada in Arraial, the accommodation and gardens were lovely and the breakfast was memorable with great choices and all super fresh and well presented. Staff were friendly and helpful with suggestions for days out and restaurants and cafes to enjoy. We really appreciated the no under 12 years policy, and wish more pousadas adopt this measure.

This place is very cozy and peaceful. The rooms are located around the garden and the pool; which is beautiful either during day or night hours. The place is well taken care of, it can be clearly noticed through the little details regarding the room decoration, the common areas (their unique garden) and the healthy and tasty breakfast served in the morning. Great taste and presentation! The location of the Pousada is very near to the most popular street of Arraial: Rua Mucuge. The staff is also great! It was a pleasure to eat the tasteful dishes prepared by Mrs. Sueli and receive the warmth, respectful and hospitable service of Ms. Jaque. If you look for a comfortable and peaceful place, surrounded by coconut trees and a beautiful garden. Recanto do Arraial will overcome your expectations.

Walking distance from village center and located on a quiet side street this Inn provides expansive grounds to relax and a beautiful pool. The Inn is well maintained (rooms and facilities) and the management and staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Everyday something different choices along with the basic items.

Recanto was the perfect place for a few days relaxing at Arraial! Walking distance from the city center and greatest bars/restaurants, but located in a quiet area surrounded by nature- perfect for a good night sleep! Rooms are very clean and comfortable, pool area is the perfect spot to rest after a day at the beach. Also, don’t miss their breakfast, def a highlight ;)

Im not sure where to start this review, the property itself is 2nd to none to put it simply its just so beautiful and releaxing and a real peice of heaven, you wont be disapointed. The location is perfect, just far enough away from the center for peace and quite but close enough for a 5 min walk to all the action. The breakfast is the best I've ever had in Brasil just amazing and you get it every morning, the staff are increadable and you can tell they love what they do and I guess finally I'll say the owners Cristina and Marcus are meant to do what they do, truly amazing people who love what they do, a real pleasure to know and I cant wait to see them again in the future, Its not possible to say enough good abouth them or their propety, a pleasure to stay at this Pousada.

Pousada Recanto do Arraial won't disappoint. Its high marks and reviews are well deserved. The grounds are excellent, the rooms are comfortable, the furnishings are very nice, the breakfasts are awesome with options prepared for you fresh each morning, the location is good - an easy walk to Rua Mucuge, and the pool is well maintained. Cristina, Marcus and Jacqueline go out of their way to answer any questions you may have and ensure you are satisfied. Recommended highly.

We had a great time staying here. You have a choice of 3 levels of luxury with option 1 being a simple type cabin w/queen size bed bathroom, the room is kind of small but if your there to see the town and hit the beaches it's really all you need. We stayed in this room and it was good for us. The second option is your rooms a little bigger and the third option is the house on the grounds which is perfect for up to 4 couples, its really quite amazing. The grounds of this Pousada are really beautiful and the breakfast that's included was amazing. the owners are extremely friendly and will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. I also think you can only get a max of about 10-15 people here max so its very quite. The walk to Mucuge St takes about 5-10 min so the location is very good. you can walk to Praia Mucuge that takes about 10 to 15 min but in my opinion of all the beaches in the area its the worst one. I recommend renting a car/bike or bugy to tour the area and see all the beaches in the area. If we ever go again on our own or with friends we will stay here again, no question. My only minor beef is the same beef I normally have and that's the speed of the internet is very slow but I understand why, I'm supposed to be at the beach.
