Extremly nice staff and very clean. Just in front of the ocean, the best room is number 5! But all the others are nice too, little chalets very cosy with a net in front of each bungalow, breakfast is very good with pure home made juices and cakes, really nice, and quality price the best!

This is really a super nice place, well located on the third beach, where it is quiet and still close to everything. i especially loved the bungalows in the tropical garden, right in front of the beach.

Several bungalows built around an exotic garden. The bungalow is simple but provides a pleasent stay, with an A/C, refrigerator, clean toilet and a hot shower. You have a nice porch with a hammock with a great view to the garden. A good location between the vivid 2nd beach and the quiet and romantic 4th beach , right on the... More

I loved Chez max, its a simple no frills bnb , with basic wooden rooms (with a/c though) on the 3rd beach of Morro, so about 5 min walk from the busier second and 5 mins to the quieter 4th ... The setting is so nice and green that you can hardly see any other bungalows from your veranda, all... More

It was a nice pousada to stay. We only needed a place to sleep and have a shower so it was what we where looking for. Expect a lot of humidity in January but air con makes it better (but colder). The guy who owns the place (don't remember the name, Italian guy) was very helpful to accommodate us all... More

Great location, great value, and in a lovely little setting, but the chalets need a little sprucing up. There's nothing drastically wrong, but the chalets are a little worn, though I have to admit they are still kinda cool. There is the option of apartment rooms too though. The Pousada is located on the 3rd beach, the perfect location for... More
