“Lovely Pousada, not too sure about Maragogi though”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

Katya, who runs the Dolphin is very friendly and helpful. After a few weeks of travel struggling with our basic Portuguese in Pousadas it was great to have someone who speaks english. She immediately organized a boat for us to visit the natural pools.. and- mindful of our embarrassingly bad language skills- even gave us a free Portuguese lesson over breakfast!

Our room was lovely. We paid 95R and it was worth it- GREAT bed, lots of natural light, AC, lovely hot shower. All good. The communal areas in the Pousada are also nice (great yoga space on the roof) and there are bikes to hire.

Breakfast was great! fresh coconut water, eggs, lots of fruit. Great coffee.

The only thing that stopped us for staying for more than one night was Maragogi itself. It's kind of a souless place with bus loads of tourists arriving and disappearing by 5pm. Night time was a little eery. The sea is beautiful but there were a lot of Portugese Man of War jelly fish- the really nasty stinging ones so we didn't feel like going in on the main beach. The natural pools are beautiful but not enough to warrant staying more than one night.
