This is a nice pousada,with a great location right on the beach and good value for money. It is next door to Pousada Farol das Tartarugas (also by the beach), a few houses down from Projeto Tamar and 5 minutes walk to the village.
The sea in Praia do Forte is warm and colour and visibility vary greatly with tides, rain etc. The big problem is that there are many reefs and rocks and it is difficult to get in and out of the water. When the tide is low, some natural pools are formed just in front of the pousada.
The rooms and bathrooms are clean and spacious.
I think the pousada lacks a bit on attention to detail. The towels could be better quality; breakfast is good, but there is not hot options (no eggs); even if the beach in front of the hotel does not belong to them, they could clean some of the seaweed and rubbish brought by currents and winds; staff is super friendly but cannot answer simple questions such as what is the opening time of Projeto Tamar or what is the best time to visit it.
