This hotel is a lovely find, set directly on Papa Gente beach. We stayed for three nights and it was just what we needed after travelling for 10 days around the country. It is positioned almost next door to the Tamar Project and a 5 min walk from the main shopping and restaurant area.You have to ask reception for the... More

Very good location. Very friendly staff and very good hotel. The swimming pool is right in front of the rooms. I stayed on the main building and not on the bangalos Pictures do not show how good it really is. 50/100 meters from Projeto Tamar. Right on the beach. Recommend!

We loved this litle Pousada. It is right on the sandy beach and the Pousada is within a gated enclave so it is very safe. The beach is better than the "town" beach and it is a real bonus not having to walk to a beach with all your gear. The "swimming" pools at low tide are just by the... More

I and my family and also my sister and her family stayed at this pousada for 5 days. It was right on the beach were you could snorkel. But our first impression of the beach was that it wasn't that nice until we realized there were a lot of corals. If you went further to the north you found umbrellas... More

The photos on their website don't do it justice. This place was beautiful and perfect in every way. We were there during the World Cup and it was a nice respite from the chaos of the big cities. It is right on the beach, has a great pool and wonderful, clean rooms with hammocks to while away the day. The... More

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...
