In our first visit to Rosa as a family with 3 kids we were very favorably impressed by several features of this beautiful bay.
Mind we were there in January, high season, when it gets packed with an upper-middle class early 20's crowd from Argentina.
It wasn´t quite bothersome though since this was not the spring break types you find in other places such as Cancun, Florida etc. They were actually quite quiet and laidback especially at the beach i.e. were we met them.
Rosa is not entirely thought for families since most of the high end Pousadas and Guest houses cater for couples and there´s a lot of cheap lodging for young groups. Notwithstanding we manage to rent a cabin in Morada Nas Estrelas which was rustic but charmingly appropiate and with a wonderful view.
In high season there are plenty of options for dining.
The strenghts of this place are its landscape, and the luscious morros that rise behind the beach which is also beautiful.
We found it as a great place for surfing with classes from Capitao David a must for begginers and kids.
Try staying either on the beach (Fazenda Verde), in a place with down-hill access (Vida Sol y Mar) or in a place with boat access (Bucanero) since driving to the beach is not an option and walking up and down to the beach can get hard.
