We stayed at Pousada do Pilar for 3 nights in Jan 2011 with two very young children. We arrived late night from the Amazon and as soon as we came to our room - we were delighted. It was large and open and we had a giant balcony. We had one of the suites with the ocean view and there were two extra beds for the children and there was just so much room for the kids to run around! We loved it!
We were picked up at the airport by the pousada driver and as we were driving up to the Pelo` I started having doubts about my choice so I had my fingers crossed. But the pousada is so charming. They serve breakfast on the terrace, and its a really nice continental breakfast. The ladies are very sweet. They even did our laundry (hand-washed!!!), we saw them drying from our balcony.
Its a little bit away from the main square but we did the walk quite easily carrying our babies so its not that big a deal! Cabs are easily available. Beware of taking cabs though, there are many one ways and cabs will happily take you for a ride around town once they know you're a tourist!
Oh, the best thing about this pousada is Filipe. I was already impressed with him by the efficiency of his replies to my various requests by email. But he is just the most helpful, polite and friendly person. He even drove us to the Barra in his brand new car. He was always full of advice and recommendation, and spent an hour on the phone, translating for my husband, confirming the rest of our trip! He is very nice!
I saw the last two reviews about the linen and mattress -we did not have the same issues but may be they stayed in a different room. We found the room very comfortable with a great view of the bay!
