    Tem pousadas melhores

    Localização boa porém só isso não vale , café da manhã ruim , café vai até as 9:30 e as 8:30 já tinha acabado quase tudo e não iriam repor mais , pouquíssima variedade (só pão), quarto extremamente pequeno , ficamos sem água no banheiro , mas o pior é a acústica , se escuta o q se fala lá na recepção e quando os funcionários chegam da cozinha bem cedo parece que estão dentro do quarto ! Não volto e muito menos recomendo.

    Pode melhorar!!!

    Pousada razoável!!! Precisa melhorar em: Limpeza na parte da piscina! Trocar as toalhas na limpeza dos quartos! E precisa repor os alimentos na hora do café da manhã, para que todos os hóspedes se alimentem bem, sem contar que é muito fraco as opções de tomar café!

    Pousada muito boa

    Pousada muito bem localizada, recepção dos funcionários muito boa e limpeza muito boa. A única coisa que pesa contra é o número de mesas no refeitório que considero em pouca quantidade.

    Pousada com excelente Custo-Benefício

    Pontos positivos: Gostei muito da estadia, pousada nova em excelentes condições, limpa, café da manhã excelente, atendimento dos funcionarios perfeito, com simpatia e disponibilidade,Wi-fi funciona direitinho, ótima localização, próximo ao nome "Eu amo Jampa", ar condicionado funcionando bem, tv com smart e netflix, porém somente canais aberto, camas em bom estado(único desconforto foi que a cama de casal eram duascamas de solteiro causando desnivel na dormida, porém tolerável), roupa de cama limpa, inclusive com edredom. Voltarei outras vezes, recomendadíssimo. Pontos negativos: 1-Piscina suja não podendo usá-la, prometeram limpara porém ficou somente na promessa, acho que a bomba estava quebrada. Embora ser perto de praia, os hospedes gostam de se refrescar na piscina. Anunciou tem que oferecer(Sugestão) 2- No segundo dia surgiu um cheiro desagradável que imaginei ter sido do retorno do esgoto pelo ralo porém foi resolvido com a limpeza diária. Sugestão seria Bom colocar ralos anti refluxo, pois é um cheiro dessagradável ao entrar no quarto. Conclusão Fiquei dois dias com minha família e amei a pousada e o lugar, os pontos negativos são contornáveis e fica como sugestão para melhorar ainda mais. Quem se hospedar não vai se arrepender.

    O quarto que ficamos foi no térreo, então era bastante barulhento, o café da manhã é tarde, pois os passeios eram as 7 e tinha q chegar antes das 7 no local, assim fiquei sem tomar café
