This is the best Pousada in Arraial do Cabo. You have the most beautiful view from both sides. You can relax by the pool, you can eat at the Restaurant located in the hotel. The bedroom is well equipped. The only problem are the stairs.

Every hotel has its rules and most of them are common sense, but that the "norms of our establishment" are presented upon check-in and you are only receiving your key upon signing them as a "responsible guest" is a unique feature of Caminho do Sol in Arraial do Cabo. At least, it never happened to me in my many years... More

This a small, peaceful hotel just a couple of minutes walk from the wonderful Praia Grande beach. Very relaxed and set around its own private garden and pool the hotel is an excellent retreat, although we spent limited time there as the beaches are so wonderful. The rooms are large and clean, with massive beds. Amazing selection of quiches and... More

We stayed two nights at this pousada and enjoyed it very much. It's a lovely and very clean pousada, with a nice terrace overlooking the city and just a walking minute away from the beach Praia Grande. The staff was very attentive. Breakfast was good and we were surprised by the quantity of cakes they serve. We also had dinner... More

The pousada location is very convenient: 10 minutes by taxi to the bus station (R$ 15, fixed price) and 1 minute walking to Praia Grande. We stayed in a suite standart plus (number 26), very clean and spacious, with a nice view to the garden, the village roofs and the distant Praia dos Anjos, with 2 beds together (weird but... More

Great place- felt like we were very looked after. More of a hotel than a guest house, with a lovely pool area and decked area for the pool bar. Rooms very clean and enormous bed. Lovely balcony with great view over the city. Staff were helpful and booked a boat trip for us which we highly recommend- some amazing beaches... More

Stayed here from June 28 - june 30, 2013. Nice pousada just up the hill from praia grande. This was my first trip here and liked it very much. The beaches are awesome. I know Buzios has a better night-life, but I still like this place better. A more relaxed feel to it. The room itself is of decent size.... More

This is a very nice looking, actually - quite impressive - pousada, for this small and (outside Brazil) unknown beach town - Arraial do Cabo. This town is only 25 km from famous Buzios, but a world apart. The owner is German, we were told, and one can see that in the general layout, beauty and organization of the buildings... More

We spent two nights at Caminho do Sol. The place is nice, the food is very good. Don't expect much from the bar, but the restaurant is great! The breakfast is the best thing about it! All kinds of cakes! Delicious! Very friendly staff. The odd is the room. Not quiet. We stayed at #29 and there was a lot... More

This was definitely the best pousada during our four week stay in Brazil! Nice views over Arraial do Cabo (due to its location on a hill) but also not too far away from the centre and the beaches. Good breakfast and dinner. At least one of the receptionists spoke English. They accept credit cards.
