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

It's the closest hotel to the boat docks (to and from Porto Seguro) and even so with the van service across the street (communitary 'cabs') you can reach the night life, restaurants and lovely shopping alleys of Mucuge Street in 20 minutes or so!The beach is nice but with coarse sand and the hotel has beach service. Small rooms a... More

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!
