The pousada is beautiful: The service-Team is very very friendly and attentive, everything is designed with love. But the atmosphere given by the owners is cold and very uncomfortable (that's why I rated service with 2). I think they are their best guests themselves and with my 40 years they made me feel like a naughty kid, spending holidays with... More

just an awful experience overall. the owner/manager was totally unfriendly. the room was tiny, dirty and needed some serious works. the bathroom was leaking water from every hole. and finally the place wax overcrowded with mosquitos and bugs of various species!!! in general this hotel is not worth a penny of what they are asking for!

Centrally located within Imbassai - walkable distance to the supermarket, beach and main road bus stop where you can catch the bus to Praia de Forte (15 min.) or Salvador (1 hour). Comfortable beds, and spacious room - favourite part was the private hammock on the patio. Negatives: The bathroom shower door stays half open and everything would get soaked... More

One of those places you just don't want to leave. It's beautiful, simple, comfortable, atmospheric. The food was amazing. The pool is large with lots of space to relax. The staff were friendly. The beach at Imbassai is gorgeous - wide, white sand, goes on for miles. The perfect place for strolls on the beach and sundowners. Would LOVE to... More

I've had the pleasure of staying at Vilangelim a number of times,and I must say that I have not been disappointed, in fact,I would love it if they would consider selling one of their bungalows to me . The grounds are filled with tropical delights,and the restaurant and bar is one of the best in the area,staffed by a marvelously... More

Couldn't ask for better - beautiful environment, helpful staff and owners but not intrusive. Close to the beach/river and to "town". For a really terrific experience, this is your place!

My boyfriend and I spent the last four days of our Brazil trip in Imbassai at Vilangelim. It was the perfect end to our vacation. Very relaxing, nice, clean cottages, great restaurant, very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended. Imbassai is a gem ... there was a lot of construction going on in the town ... I'm curious to see... More
