My 2 adult children and I recently stayed at Mar do Leste for 3 nights. Eloy was helpful. We arrived very late at night and he was there to welcome us. He also arranged for our taxi back to the airport. Our room had 3 beds and a kitchenette. Decor was functional. It was plenty of space for the 3... More

The pros of this pousada are the location close to the beach and helpful staff (although the reception is only open from 8 am-8 pm). Barra da Lagoa is a beautiful beach although the eating options in the village are not that great or plentiful. Although the room/suite was big, there was very little natural light as the window had... More

Thanks for such a great review. Unfortunately we can not allow guests to turn on the AC while they are not in the room. This is necessary as we are concerned about preserving the nature. But we did changed the box air conditioning unit for a new split one that is very silent and efficient. We are happy you enjoyed... More

I was very well treated at Pousada Mar do Leste. The proprietor offered personal assistance and checked in with me daily at breakfast to see what I might need. I am a woman traveling alone and he made me feel safe and even offered a ride to a bank. I spent most of my time on the beach but was... More

My two traveling companions and I had a very nice stay at this pleasant pousada. It is very simple and tidy, and the ladies that run it are laid-back and accommodating.

Moved to Barra from Praia Mole because it seemed to have more life. At this time of year the season is over, so we had a good choice of accommodation. The Mar del Este looks very clean and tidy from outside and that was true throughout the buildings. Our room $R160 a night, was well-equipped and included a microwave and... More
