I went for a 4 day holiday with my family, I have two young kids. Our room was super nice and very spacious, the bed was really good and confortable, we all slept very well. The highlight for me was the shower, with abundance and easy to control the temperature, after a day at the beach all I want is... More

This was the 5th time I've stayed here over the past 8 years and it is always a great experience! Highly recommend for the location, service, comfortable and clean rooms, and wonderful breakfast! They offer a friendly setting with great food and close to downtown... you can walk along the beach if the tide is low, or through the condo... More

When we come to Praia do Forte we always try to stay here (and only stay elsewhere if there is no availability here). Even though there are nice places around here, Farol has the best view, the cleanest rooms, a delicious breakfast (homemade things and great variety) and great service. This is the place to be in PForte - relaxation... More

This Pousada is well situated right on the beach. The staff are really friendly and the food is excellent. There was plenty of selection at breakfast and lots was freshly baked. Easy 5 minute walk to the main shopping area. The rooms and pool were very clean. My only criticism would be that the gardens leading down to the beach... More

My girlfriend and I spent a week here in Jan 2016 and loved it. The Pousada is ideally located right on the beach and within a 5 mins walk to the 'Projeto Tamar' (Turtle nursery ), which is right next to the church and the start of the main town. Our ground floor room (Apartment 2) was a good size... More

This hotel is a lovely find, set directly on Papa Gente beach. We stayed for three nights and it was just what we needed after travelling for 10 days around the country. It is positioned almost next door to the Tamar Project and a 5 min walk from the main shopping and restaurant area.You have to ask reception for the... More

Very good location. Very friendly staff and very good hotel. The swimming pool is right in front of the rooms. I stayed on the main building and not on the bangalos Pictures do not show how good it really is. 50/100 meters from Projeto Tamar. Right on the beach. Recommend!

We loved this litle Pousada. It is right on the sandy beach and the Pousada is within a gated enclave so it is very safe. The beach is better than the "town" beach and it is a real bonus not having to walk to a beach with all your gear. The "swimming" pools at low tide are just by the... More

I and my family and also my sister and her family stayed at this pousada for 5 days. It was right on the beach were you could snorkel.

The photos on their website don't do it justice. This place was beautiful and perfect in every way. We were there during the World Cup and it was a nice respite from the chaos of the big cities.
