I visit Porto Seguro each year since that is where my husband is from and we frequently visit this hotel to use the beach and beach bar. They have just built a number of new rooms which overlook the sea and have put in another pool, plus a nice area to relax with large wooden sofas with cushions and a... More

This is a very nice hotel, nice spacious rooms, very good breakfast. It's right Ina very nice beach and just across the street from the ferry. Take shampoo as the hotel doesn't provide. Food for lunch is pricey but the portions of the hot plates are big!!!

The staff are very nice. The breakfast is very good. There is a restaurant in the hotel. The hotel is near... More

I've been in Aquarela during the first week of April 2014. We arrived from Porto Seguro airport and the hotel is located just before crossing the "Balsa" (boat that transport for Porto Seguro to Arraial D'Ajuda). In the surroundings, you have a pizza restaurant, some groceries that take credit cards, and the most important... the "vans" public transportation to Arraial... More

Small rooms a... More

Last year I spent a week in the Aquarela Praia hotel with my partner. We had not had a holiday for a while and we needed a relaxing time. The room we were given was comfortable and of a good size. The service was good and the members of the staff were friendly and professional. For a week we could... More

A real little piece of heaven. This is a cosy, brilliantly managed hotel. Having breakfasts my my feet on the beach send. Great food, fresh, clean and well presented room. amazing people that makes you feel like home. Spotless staying and unforgettable holidays. A quick tip: Try the "moqueca de camarao". It's delicious!
