You can stay in no matter how many hotels in the world and they would all look the same. This is not the case for this Pousada. Even though nicely decorated rooms are not super big and comfortable. This is not what you should look for in this place. The most important fact about this place is the atmosphere, it... More

Marco and Natalie are warm welcoming hosts, who will ensure that your stay in Salvador is memorable. There is a lovely family atmosphere at the Pousada, great food every morning for breakfast, and Marco and Natalie are happy to help plan day trips and ongoing travel plans. The rooms are large, comfortable and clean. The location is good, and within... More

Marco, and Nathalie are in the hospitality business! The property is safe, clean, stylish and in a very good location for exploring old Salvador. The old part of Salvador is very close and charming. It has cafes, bars, shops and interesting old churches to explore.

I stayed at Esmeralda with several friends during the World Cup and Natalie and Marco were absolutely brilliant. Friendly, helpful with lots of suggestion and fun conversation - sharing good stories (and pictures) of their previous adventures in Madagascar and other places. We were a group of 4 and were on different schedules some days, eating breakfast anywhere between 7:30am... More

I recently traveled through Brasil for 6 weeks, changing inns/hotels/pousadas/etc. every few days, and staying with Marco and Natalie at their Pousada Esmeralda was my absolute favorite. Natalie and Marco were incredible hosts, very kind and willing to share travel recommendations and providing an incredible home for us to stay comfortably. The food was delicious (lot of Natalie's own creations),... More

From the moment Marco picked us up from the airport and took us to his and Nathalie's lovely, clean, welcoming posada, we felt at home. This couple took us under their wings for our month long stay in Brazil, sending us to their friends' posadas on the beach, driving us to bus stops or to the mall to organize our... More

This is a lovely Pousada ( bed & Breakfast) within walking distance of the historic district of Salvador. The owner and host was as warm and helpful as he could be. He helped us park, helped us get tickets to the fantastic dance performance, he upgraded our room to a very large room without us even asking and he got... More

We recently stayed at the Pousada Esmeralda and we loved our stay there. It is a simple and comfortable Pousada a stone throw away from the Pelourinho. It is located in the barrio of San Antonio which is charming and has a relaxed and authentic atmosphere. It offers plenty of good quality and good value restaurants most with great views... More
