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

If you are looking for a truly beach paradise removed from the crowds, yet surrounded by a classy, friendly, sophisticated and unpretentious group of people; look no further than Praia do Espelho. And among the many cozy and inviting pousadas, Enseada do Espelho stands out. Located right on the beach, accommodation is stylish and comfortable without being over the top.... More

Not only is the location of this pousada wonderful, but the staff is friendly and their attention to detail is excellent. The food is gourmet quality and the man who manages the bar/restaurant is an artist of the caipirinha. Small, but lovely, this is the best place to stay in Espelho.

This was our second trip to Brazil. We wanted to explore some of the beaches in Northern Brazil that we'd heard about on our first trip, and it is generally warmer in the north during our winters, so I got online to look at our options and found this place which was not far from Trancoso, a very popular destination...

My fiancé and I were planning a romantic getaway for our Easter Holidays and could not decide which beach to choose from the great ones we have in Brazil... finally, we decided to go to Praia do Espelho in Porto Seguro, Bahia, and, I must say it was one of the best travel experiences we ever had (and we do...
