Great place to stay. Nice, calm and clean. Crew always prepared and fast to take care of the customers needs. Beach not good for bath, but both pools rocks! Also, restaurant is great. Not-so-expensive prices to eat.

Nice hotel on the beach. The rooms are spacious and beautifull. The 2 pools are very nice and the restaurant has good food on reasonable prices. The perfect place to relax! The staff is relaxed and friendly, but most of them don't speak english. Wifi works well, everything is very clean. There is a table tennis and (dutch) books and... More

Positive: friendly staff, the flowers on our bed when we arrived, nice clean room, great environment, spotted a lot of turtleheads while taking a walk on the beach. Negative: waiting an hour for a spaghetti bolognese in the restaurant, quite isolated if you don't have a car.

We stayed at this pousada for a few days over Christmas. There is nothing bad to say about the room, which was clean and had good air-conditioning, in addition to a very welcome hammock on the porch. The only less than perfect aspect was that since the place was very busy for Christmas we felt that the restaurant sometimes got... More

This place is secure, cozy, green, quiet and well-looked-after. We loved the bungalows and think they allow for much greater appreciation of the tropical landscape than hotel rooms. If you just want to relax and be with yourself and the nature, this place is for you. The only weak element seems to be the hotel restaurant. The wait for meals... More

While travelling around Brazil, the quality and size of the various pousadas varied enormously. Praia das Ondas is at the top end of that scale, without being expensive. Located in Itacimirim, it's close enough to Praia do Forte (the nearby touristy town with lots of restaurants and shops), yet located remotely enough to be truly peaceful. The room we booked...

We stayed here for three days and had a wonderful relaxing time here! The rooms are big and look like nice cottages lying in a wonderful big garden. Also the swimmingpool is superb. The location is right next to the beach. You can also book a nice massage at your cottage or at the pool; a mustdo! Prices are much... More

We stayed 5 nights here, it is a lovely pousada with 2 pools, a restaurant with a good selection of varied meals at a very reasonable price, the property is set up around a wonderfully maintained garden. There is also direct access to the beach. The owners are really friendly and speak english. We stayed here as we couldn't justify... More
