this was our third leg of our Bahia tour, and it was beautiful. Nice big room with a terrace and hot tub, good facilities with a nice pool and restaurant. The service is very "hands off" and compared with the other places we stayed lacked that "wow" appeal. If you're looking for a comfortable base, or something nice without being... More

The Posada is right next to the most visited area in Trancoso called Quadrado. It is literally less than 1 min walk away. The room was comfortable with double bed and air conditioning, however if you are looking for a peaceful place away Capin Santo is not for you, as they have a very busy restaurant during early January, you...

We spent Christmas here after reading good things about Trancoso. It was a treat, above our usual budget, but what you get for your money is quite extraordinary. The rooms and the hotel grounds are beautiful, with plants everywhere and a very attractive swimming pool. Rooms are well hidden from one another, so you have your privacy, and they are... More

I was traveling on business and my clients put me up for 6 days at Capim Santo. I had a beautiful bungalow that was situated in a jungle setting with lush flora and fauna all around. My unit was spacious and clean. I was greeted by friendly owners who speak English very well. The restaurant is open air and clean... More

I arrived late at night without a reservation and after a 6 hours drive from Itacaré in the middle of the horrible roads of Brazil. The only place I was told and recommended was Capim Santo. And what a wonderful recommendation. I was greeted by Fernanda with a great smile and in a question of few minutes I got room... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and the suite we got was very spacious and beautiful. The staff is helpful, they speak english at the reception and at the restaurant which is a good point! You can book the hot tub for free and this is something you have to try : bathing in the middle of a tropical garden... More

It is a cosy restaurant where the food is very good, the staff friendly and polite. What I liked the most was the large variety of juice options and the fact that there is pleasant music. It is the perfect location for couples as the music is low enough so that people can hear each other.

I said best option at the Quadrado only, because for the ones that want to stay right on the beach there are a few other nice options. Also this Pousada has the best restaurant in town by far, fair prices and the quality of the food superb. Is very nice to stay at this place and share some time with... More

We were very happy to find Capim Santo through Hidden Pousadas and loved everything about it - excellent design, stylish room, friendly and professional staff, relaxed vibe, wonderful food, superb breakfast and overall great value. Very good access to the Quadrado area and to the superb beach too. Highly recommended. I wished we could have stayed longer than a few... More

We rencently stayed at Capim Santo and it completely exceeded our expectations. Lets start by saying that the pictures you see on the web do not do it justice. The common areas are simply beautiful. It is rustic (as everything in Trancoso is) yet very stylish and Chic. The extremely friendly and attentive staff made us feel at home. The... More
