I really don't want to be nasty but there are definitely better places to stay. This place is really overpriced; we paid £150 /night for a room for three people. The room looked like it hadn't been modernised since the 1970's, it was dark, dingy and smelled quite musty. The aircon didn't really work well and i'm sorry - people reviewing are right about the shower pressure!
Breakfast was ok. Not proportionately worth the premium in room rates vs other places i've stayed in Brazil / Bahia.
Yes, the 4th beach is beautiful but it really is out of the way and impossible to walk back when the tide is in at night (don't try..we did...it isn't fun) so definitely only for people happy to stay well away from the nightlife. They have a car but it doesn't travel 24 hours and there are strict pickup times. We got stranded at a nearby hotel during a storm and they wouldn't come and get us so we waited hours for a taxi.
Ultimately, I just didn't like the energy of the place. It was a little creepy, and they put doilies (those embroidered things your grandma used to have) on EVERYTHING.
For the money we paid, we expected much, much more and it was a let down. We moved asap to another pousada on 1st beach as soon as we could.More
