Me and my girlfriend stayed at the pousada on february 2006. We had high expectations on Angra and it didn't dissapoint us!
The place is small, it must have about 10 rooms. We stayed on the balcony suite with an amazing view of the beach and islands. The room was comfortable, and more than you would expect from a two-star place, in a third world country.
Granted, the bathroom was small with a little shower, but we had a/c, a fan, tv, a small fridge and a wardrobe to put our clothes in.
The rooms were cleaned every day, no matter the time. You just left the keys in the reception area whenever you were out and they came in and cleaned. Mind you, it rained a lot during our stay, so we stayed in the room a lot, and it was clean nonetheless.
Food: you can't expect to go to a pousada in Brazil and eat as if you were at the Hilton. We had continental breakfast, very good, and the other meals had to be ordered in advance. You got the menu every day in your room and selected whatever you wanted to eat. Dishes are typically brazilian or at least south american.
You can also have lunch in the pousada right next to it, a la carte and very cheap.
This town doesn't have a lot of stores (i think i recall just 1 restaurant which we never visited, 1 pasteleria where you could buy small fried tarts stuffed with shrimp or meat of chicken or even banana and chocolate, and 1 ice cream store). So count out the nightlife if you are staying here.
We also bought our own beer and water and kept it in the hotel fridge for whenever we got thirsty, so not being able to buy food outside the hotel-not true!
The pousada also has a small bar that is open during the day and at night for alcoholic drinks...the caipirinhas were delicious!
The staff is very helpful and friendly, happy to acommodate your every whim (hot water for tea in the afternoon, lounge chairs in the beach at no cost)
The beach is really small and private, the water is amazingly clear and warm. There are 2 kinds of tour every day with a not-so-little boat that comes to the beach every morning, on which, for less than 10 dollars each, you can either tour the small islands or go to isla grande, and visit the amazing beach of Lopes Mendes. you can also book visits on the front desk to other places.
Don't be intimidated. For very little $$$ you will have a great, relaxing time. Don't expect a 5 star quality place, and you may be greately surprised.
