Great Location to visit beaches and town. Close to Praia Grande. Pousada very clean, excellent fresh breakfast and staff polite and always available for any needs. Good money value. One of the best place in Arraial do cabo.

My wife and I were here with my mum and we made the reservation through mail with the owner. The answers always arrived quickly and we were offered different ways to pay the balance. We chose to make a bank transfer of the total payment. This was the only mistake we can attach to the experience with this hotel. As... More

We've recently stayed 4 nights at this pousada. We're used to staying at Hyatt/Hilton level and although its not as luxurious, this is definitely worth the money. It's extremely clean (including the bathroom), spacious, quiet, and quaint. I'd recommend paying the extra money for a balcony/higher floor. This pousada sits high and you have an awesome view of the city... More

My wife and I just came back from a three day Easter weekend at Pousada Recanto do Atalaia. Valerio is a great host. He is there every time you need him, but disappears when you don't. The rooms were very nice, especially the big shower/bathroom and the tables on the common balcony overlooking the distant water. We really liked the... More

We stayed for a week in this pousada. The place is well taken care of, the owner, Valerio, is an Italian expat who manages the place with the help of his sister. Rooms were clean, and cleaned well daily. The place has a little pool, which the kids loved and several little tables around the deck. Valerio will make you... More
