We stayed twice in this posada during our holiday in Brazil. The first week we were very lucky, the weather was fantastic and we enjoyed a lot our fantastic terrace with gorgeous see view. We had a room on the upper floor, a great room. The second week we had a room on the ground floor. This room was less... More

Very eye-catching scenery, right on the beach, surrounded by abundant vegetation, palm-trees, clear ocean water(beware the sharp stones when bathing), 10 minutes walk to area of restaurants, shops and lively atmosphere at evening time. Hotel is cosy, not providing luxury, still charming and striking in the good sense, especially the location itself. Breakfast not very abundant, still over basic conditions,... More

The hotel was very nice, comfortable and relaxing. Room cleaned and the view over our window was amazing Staff and service were excelent, breakfast exaggerated to suit all tastes. Near by the city was too comercial, shops, restaurant and every place studied just for the turism. You can visit the park of the turtles that is nice. Only flaw in... More

Found this little place when travelling around Brazil, and just can't fault it at all. Right on the beech, near a turtle sanctuary, beautiful fishing village down the way, and warm, pristine waters. Paradise!

My family recently had the pleasure of spending 2 whole weeks at this hotel. I regularly review on tripadvisor and do not hand excellent reviews on all fronts lightly, but without hesitation I will for this wonderful small hotel.

We spent the last three nights of a hectic 3 week tour of Brazil here and it was exactly what we needed. The reception staff on arrival were so friendly but were shy about speaking English which they did beautifully, we were made to feel very welcome. We had a room on the second floor, this was large, clean and... More

Our 2 weeks at the Pousada were absolutely wonderful. We were a family party of 5 - grandmother, couple and 2 children 9&6. The location of the hotel is excellent as you only have walk across the lawn onto the beach. There is a magical reef just offshore where you can walk at low tide and it has pools you... More

Beautiful place and lovely staff make this a great destination, however, until they solve a serious vibration issue stemming from their water pumps (or whatever it may be), staying in room 211 is what I imagine living in a fridge would be like, minus the cold (the AC is very good though, so could be achieved!). In addition to the... More

I have stayed at Pousada Porto da Lua in my recent visit to Brazil. I booked this hotel based on the reviews and the pictures in their website. The hotel was more expensive than other but we decided for this one as the pictures and reviews. I was very disappointed with this hotel. The problem started when we were arriving... More

After a few quick and fun filled days in Salvador, it was time for some relaxation in Praia do Forte to celebrate our one year anniversary. We came here because of the surf nearby (for my husband) and fell in love with the beauty all around us. The hotel is right on the beach -- we had a third floor... More
