When you are in a foreign country the first thing you want is welcomed where you spend the majority of your time - the place you sleep, recharge and plan your days.

We stayed at Marta's place with out two small children. Marta was very accommodating and kind. The location is excellent, right on the beach and the guest house has a spectacular view. We would definitely stay at Marta's Guest House again.

My girlfiend and I decided to stay at Marta's guesthouse after seeing the wonderful reviews and the competitive prices compared to hotels in the area. We chose the emerald room with the ensuite bathroom after Marta answered my countless emails. The room was perfect for our stay and the shower (with what seemed like an endless supply of hot water)... More

Marta is a great woman who even fixed football tickets for the Flu-Fla game in the new Maracana. Our room was big enough for 3 persons with a huge cupboard. The private bathroom was down the hall but that was no problem. Breakfast is served in the living room. Everyday fresh bread, orange juice and homemade cake (or brownies or... More

Since the first time that I was there in 2008, I went again another four times, both alone and with my husband. During my five visits, one of them in the period of the New Year's Eve, I tried 4 different rooms and all of them were very comfortable, clean and silent. The last room where I stayed was the...

The view from the dining area was spectacular and it was great to experience that everyday. My room was clean and comfortable. Marta was flexible with the breakfast and was often checking... More

The rooms were very comfortable, with good bathrooms and plenty of hot water.
