Wonderful beach Location, very quiet, not easy to reach but worth the trip! There are not many Restaurants, so find out which opens at night. During the day all should be open as there are day-tourists arriving.

From the moment we arrived at the charming Enseada do Espelho we were treated like royalty for the week we stayed. After the warmest of welcomes from the staff we found tropical flowers grown on site on our beds and towels, not to mention cool jazz music playing as we walked into our room. The view from the deck, garden... More

Beautiful accommodation, beautiful beach, brilliant hosts. We were there in the quiet season so it was very tranquil. The restaurant was very good and the attention to detail that the bar staff had to every drink they made was amazing. Rose recommended that we also tried the thai restaurant and it was easily the best meal we ate in Brazil.... More

Rose and Mario (and Flo, their 24+ y/o red/blue McCaw) own and manage a beautiful boutique pousada on a picturesque bay about an hour drive from Trancoso. Once off the paved road from Trancoso you must travel approx. 45 minutes over an unpaved, dirt road that to say is bumpy-is a understatement. However, it is well worth the ride because... More

The journey from the airport to the hotel is a bit tricky but the place make it worth. Lovely hospitality, great service and high quality food! The hotel has as a privileged location just few yards from the beach. Counting days to return!!

Very well run, the owner Mario clearly takes pride and gets to know everyone. His team are exceptional - service is fast, friendly and comes with a smile. What sets this place apart is the location - it is incredibly stunning with miles and miles of beaches. Often, there were only 3 or 4 people along miles of beach. Perfect... More

What a place. The setting is beautiful. Miles of lovely beaches backed by low cliffs with reefs off the coast covered at high tide and exposed at low tide to form a series of tranquil basins ideal for swimming. The pousada itself is so welcoming. The details in the rooms are delightful and a great deal of thought and affection... More

Pousada Enseada do Espelho absolutely deserves all the praise it's getting on Tripadvisor. Great premises and service, amazing beach and such good food. Staff and managers did always go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and welcome. In short, quintessential Brazilian hospitality. It's definitely so worth the trip down the bumpy road from Porto Seguro/Trancoso.

Everything about Enseada do Espelho was amazing: the hotel, the staff, the food, the managers/owners. My wife and I have never felt more at home and appreciated as guests. I have stayed at 5 star hotels in NYC, Maui, and across the USA, none of them compare to Enseada do Espelho. Food was very reasonably priced and incredibly tasty. Authentic... More
