Beautiful pousada. Been coming to California for twelve years now, always come back to this one. Clean, friendly staff, and an oasis to stay at. Love it here. Beautiful and filling breakfast provided.

We selected this pousada because of the many excellent evaluations on TripAdvisor and LonelyPlanet (2010 edition) recommendation and spent three nights in room 32. The reception was kind and the Dutch manager polite and hospitable. The infrastructure of the building and room has become slightly outdated and needs renovation and refurbishment to keep up the pace in my view. Next... More

The Hotel is in two locations opposite each other on a quiet road. The Other side to us had a small pool which we didn't use. Our room was quite dark and the air conditioning was so noisy we couldn't use it at night. I cannot comment on the other rooms. The Location was quite good being one street from... More

We were lucky enough to stay in Pousada California for nearly a month and loved every minute of it. David (manager) makes the pousada. I could not imagine it without him. Friendly, helpful and sincere. Lovely staff and amazing breakfast. I highly highly recommend this Pousada for couples and families.

Pousada California is a nice small hotel in the centre of the village and closed to the beach. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast is very good, with fresh fruit juices and great coffee. The small bar serves delicious caipirinhas and the whole atmosphere is very relax. Some rooms still need to be renovated, but the beds are... More

We've stayed 3 nights in this hotel, enjoying every moment. The place has character, the staff is friendly and helpful, and breakfast is good (plus free coffee/tea and fruits available throughout the day, and other details that made the stay more enjoyable). The manager seems to be flexible and available to discuss individual needs. We highly recommend the place for... More

This place is really calm and beautiful, the ocean water is warm and there are pretty orange barriers on the beach. We accomodated at the 'Pousada California' wich is near from the... More
