Reviewed 15 January 2010

I've been to Sitio Sao Francisco last week for a one week holiday last week. I chose this pousada trusting the reviews on TripAdvisor and - believe me - all positive comments are totally true. Excelent location, by the seashore and with public transport you can take in front of the pousada taking you to almost every interesting place in Arraial; next to the best bar on Aracaipe beach undoubtely; only 6 acomodations (what makes the pousada facilities virtually exclusive most of the time); polite and friendly guests (well, this might have been luck as well as the fact that there were no kids or teens); very good taste decoration and soft linen; staff very friendly and professional; a "beach lounge" perfect for resting and watching the beach; honest prices. Sitio is runned by a very nice couple, Mile and Teo, that try and actually pleases the guests in all ways without invading their privacy. And Arraial is very beautiful and safe. I definitely will go back there.

A lovely small hotel with a relaxing ambiance. Its an ideal place to chillout, paint, chat, throw dinner parties. Each individual chalet style room or appartment has been individually decorated for the personal touch. The owners Mile and Teo and their staff offered fantastic, warm and friendly service. Highly recommend a stay there.

Watch out for their new web site coming soon www.pousada-arraial.com - Portuguese version. www.hotel-arraial.com - English and Spanish.

I've been to "Sitio" twice, first time was at X-mas 2007 and the 2nd time at X-mas and New Year 2008/2009. After the first time I knew I'll be back for a longer stay and that's how I'm feeling at the moment as well.
As you might know, Arraial is known of its parties for young people, especially at New Year season. As Sitio is located out of the center area, you can always choose between the "silence"/peaceful holidays and parties. It's still not too far from anywhere, you just take a "kombi" or a bus to the center (you can also go walking, but I wouldn't recommend it at night).
The rooms have personality, I suppose that every suite has a different theme, like my room was "blue suite" and so on. There are larger apartments for families. I really like the decoration of the suites, they are simple but decorated with a good taste. Bath was great too!
Sitio has only some 6 (?) apartments and suites. You may not have an ocean view from your room/balcony, but you are practically on the beach anyway. The pousada area has lots of vegetation, the garden area is beautiful and calm, they take good care of it and there is enough room for everyone. There is a small pool and a little (but so nice) private area in front of the beach. They don't have any bar on the beach, but one of the best beach bars (Corujão) of Arraial is next door to pousada. (Higly recommended too!)
The last but not the least thing at all: the hosts and the staff are great! They are there to help you, but respect if you just want to enjoy the rest and the quiet in that wonderful place. I don't have any bad word to say about them or about the service I received. I just felt home there and I hope to be back soon again.

Just one warning: protect yourselves from mosquitos! Of course it isn't a problem of the pousada, but in general.
