Beautiful pousada, we really enjoyed our stay there, and we also want to come back in the future. Good price, amazing view of the landscape, and very nice staff. Unfortunatelly Arraial Do Cabo is unsafe, because someone copied my debit card in ATM and got up money from my bank account. I always tried to be carefull about it, but... More

You can't beat the view and, the hotel is at a very peaceful spot, exactly what we were looking for. However, there are some points to be considered: you do need a car to have access to this location. The room I stayed at was very, I mean, very outdated. I'm not a picky person and we were there only... More

Hotel location in a top of a hill guarantees a great view, although means difficulty to get there to. GPS apps like WAZE do not find it with certainty. It's necessary to follow small indicative signs after reaching main entrance of the private condiminium where hotel is located. Rooms are very simple. Furniture is rustic with wood bed frame and...

Front desk staff and the view should be the only reason you stay here. We booked two triple rooms after reading reviews and looking at the pictures. We got there around 10pm after looking around for an hour or so, address is quite complicated and crazy to find at night. Once we got there the guy at the reception charged... More

The best place to stay in Arraial do Cabo!!! There`s no other hotel in the area with the same view. Since we went there for the first time, we never changed our location. You will love Arraial and you wont forget this hotel, because the people who work there make you feel like you`re at home. They have delicious cakes... More

I stayed at Tantomar for 3 nights (low season rate: R$85). Rooms are indeed clean, comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was also good. You need a car to get to all beaches on Arraial do Cabo. There is a beach within walking distance from the hotel (Praia Brava) but you can only get there on a short period of the month... More
