I visit Porto Seguro each year since that is where my husband is from and we frequently visit this hotel to use the beach and beach bar.

It's the closest hotel to the boat docks (to and from Porto Seguro) and even so with the van service across the street (communitary 'cabs') you can reach the night life, restaurants and lovely shopping alleys of Mucuge Street in 20 minutes or so!The beach is nice but with coarse sand and the hotel has beach service. Small rooms a...

The service was good and the members of the staff were friendly and professional. For a week we could...

A real little piece of heaven. This is a cosy, brilliantly managed hotel. Having breakfasts my my feet on the beach send. Great food, fresh, clean and well presented room. amazing people that makes you feel like home. Spotless staying and unforgettable holidays. A quick tip: Try the "moqueca de camarao". It's delicious!

“We used a triple room. Was located in the middle of the hotel area. Has a slight view to the sea. I believe that rooms from the front may be a little noisy, due to the "Balsa".”
