8/10 Very good

The staff was unbelievably kind and hospitable! They were also English speaking which is hard to come by and a welcoming change. Nice and quite, perfect if you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Salvador, but nothing too luxurious. You won’t find many touristy shops nearby and the walk is about 45 min to the main party town, but doable during low tide. A short 20 min boat is available for 4R and easy and at least every hour. The staff and people staying there were all wonderful, and they are dog and pet friendly!

A estadia foi ótima! A pousada é linda, aconchegante. Tem um jardim encantador que nos faz ter mais contato com a natureza. A limpeza é impecável. Sempre quando voltava ao fim do dia, o quarto estava limpo e arrumado. A Sra Ana e sua filha Helena nos fizeram se sentir em casa. São muito atenciosas e aparentemente apaixonadas pelo que fazem e pelo lugar. A localização também é boa p/ quem fica na Gamboa. Acabei comprando nessa praia sem perceber, a intenção era me hospedar no Morro. Mas não me arrependi. A única coisa que me impede de dar a nota mil, é que o hotel não tem café da manhã na baixa temporada (viajei agora em Outubro). Pra mim, a falta do café da manhã foi difícil, ainda mais por ter criança e na Gamboa não há o leque de opções que existe no Morro. Mas tirando esse ‘detalhe’, foi tudo perfeito e encantador!

Nossa experiência, no geral, foi positiva. O local é bem arborizado e próximo à praia. Todavia, em quatro dias de estadia, nosso chalé não recebeu a benfazeja visita da senhora limpeza. Além disso, alguns mobiliários do chalé são antigos e reclamam por substituição. Na telvisão, somente alguns poucos canais com sinal aberto. O "saguão" estava em reforma, gerando algum desconforto. Os proprietários são atenciosos e prestativos.
