As almost every reviewer observes, it is the spectacular views that make this pousada an outstanding place to visit. But that does not mean that service suffers. Upon our arrival for a two-day visit we were given a warm welcome and we and our bags were whisked away to our sea-view room in no time.
The common areas of the building are most appealing with decor that complements the architecture, history and atmosphere of the place. The rooms are less appealing but are quite adequate. They are minimally equipped, no minibar or coffee and the bathroom was under-ventilated and was sauna-like after a shower. There was an in-room safe. But honestly, the balcony and the views up the coast and out to the ocean overwhelmed any minor omissions in the room.
We had breakfast and dinner in the pousada's restaurant and both were very good with friendly, efficient service from all the staff.
