Over priced
Ants crawling all over the place. Location isn't amazing. Way over priced for what it is. Breakfast is basic. No hot water in shower. No sheet on the bed, only a blanket. But on a positive note. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Funcionários bem prestativos, boa vista de Arraial, ponto negativo, a água do chuveiro demora um pouco a esquentar por se tratar de boiler, com isso, acabamos tendo desperdício de água.

Muito bom
Funcionários super bem educados, localização perto de tudo, tem 2 praias que da pra ir a pé de boa. Cafe da manhã, maravilhoso. Tudo extremamente gostoso e fresco. Quarto amplo, espaco pra colocar as coisas, quarto com tv, banheiro um pouco menor mas nada que desabone a estadia. Com toda certeza voltarei.

4/10 Fair

Pousada bem simples, local difícil acesso,camas sem virol, só lençol e uma colcha, café da manhã bom , porém começa as 7:30 e pedimos a comanda pra escolher as 7:25 hs , foi informado que só entregaria 7:30hs, chuveiro precisa de manutenção assim como pia do banheiro entupida, enfim não ficaria lá novamente!
