It takes about 5 minutes to walk to the beach. It is clean and comfortable. The staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast was great. During weekends, the beach is crowded and they are really loud. If you are looking for a quiet time, beware of this situation. You can find some nice restaurants around the hotel. It's a good value... More

Pleasant Pousada located near the beach and a relatively short distance from the airport (15 minutes). Pleasant staff, there is a nice pool, good breakfast; the orange juice was particularly nice. The bed was comfortable and provided a good nights sleep. The property was clean and well maintained, restaurants and shops nearby.

We stayed here for one week in October 2013. The place is clean and tidy, the staff is friendly and helpful and breakfast is almost too good. We might have put on some weight of all those tasty bakery and fried bananas and other things we aren't able to verify - but still taste good! However, if you want peace... More

Spent 5 nights in this great Pousada out of the main town and quiet. The hosts were great and the staff all friendly. Janet is from England and it was great to get her views on the country. Arranged pick up from the airport even though the flight landed at 12.15am. Comfortable room and very clean. Breakfast was great. Most... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Pousada Encanto de Itapoan over the carnival period and it was amazing!!! I don't know where to start, I am very picky about everything, Pousada Encanto ticked every box and more and I simply cannot wait to return. Before we had even arrived, Octa (the owner) was so warm friendly and helpful and always... More

The room was very small compared to the other places we stayed in, especially given the price and location. Didn't really think it was value for money but it's a good place for people who just want a place to sleep. On a good note, Daniel who worked at the pousada was very friendly and helpful. The location was OK...... More

Spent 5 days at the pousada in April 2012 with family of 8 people. Extremely friendly, very serviceminded staff. Very comfortable if you want to see beaches north of Salvador but don't want to go to Praia da Forte, which is waste of time. Quiet neighbourhood and chance to mingle the locals.

The pousada is very well located, distance to the beach is less than 100 metres, as well there is a pool in the posada's garden. The pousada is not in the center of Itapoan, so it is a quiet place, close to the airport (15 minutes by taxi, which cost around 30,- R$) The rooms are cosy and clean, the... More
