I've spend a weekend in Farol das Tartarugas in July with my girlfriend, during the FIFA Wolrd Cup 2014. It was wonderfulul. Amazing view, great staff, great breakfast, very clean rooms. The food was very tasty, although you have to order use hour before, because the restaurant isn't open for general public. I strongly recommend the shrimp talharim. I will... More

I've been to this hotel a couple of months ago and was amazed! The surroundings were gorgeous, the little marmoset monkeys running around sometimes were the highlight of my day! The breakfast was delicious too and I really liked the variety! I'll be def coming back :)

I strongly recommend this pousada. We stayed in the ´Papa Gente´ chalet which is by beachfront and it is spacious, clean and very comfortable. The bed is excellent and the shower a well. It´s also nicely designed with relatively new furniture. The breakfast was impressive with a very good selection and quality: freshly squeezed fruit juices, many tropical fruits, home... More

We stayed in the beachfront cottage, with views over the beach & sea & a 10 minute walk into town. The other hotels are very close. We had our own private large Jacuzzi bath in the bedroom, which had a very comfortable bed, and a separate shower. The breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice. Weather wasn't great whilst we... More

We stayed 3 nights in early January -- right in the middle of Brazilian school vacation. Part of the relaxed ambiance was the number of families with small children staying here. The nice ladies in the kitchen will prepare snacks on request, including fresh mango, caju and goiaba juices and, with advance notice, prepare delicious dinners. The breakfast buffet featured...

Visited the pousda in August. Place was clean, has nice pool, good food and is in good location. Only issue was with owners who seemed not to be hospitable. Really irked us that they wanted good tables at breakfast reserved for themselves and sometimes they didnt even appear. With so much choice available we would not return.

This is my last day here and it has been sooooo relaxing, very quiet but near to nightlife if you want it. I was expecting to travel with a friend but came here on my own instead and it is totally fine to be here as a single woman. Service is friendly, rooms are beautiful and spacious and the wi-fi...

We spent a weekend with our kids at this very nice hotel. The rooms are spacious and services very attentive. Upon reservation they already made reservations for a taxi with a child seat to pick us up at the airport. Allowed as a late checkout without any problems. Had several umbrellas to lend during rainy days. Served a very good... More
