This place may be the best Arraial do Cabo has to offer as far as pousadas go, but that's not saying much. The pictures are very deceiving. I can over look a few poor things, but this place just has too many to ignore. There were ants crawling all over the sink and vanity, a massive cockroach in the very old and dated bathroom, & spider webs in the shower. The air conditioner leaked all over the 1ft by 2ft balcony and down the wall into the room, soaking the floor. The rooms are very tiny and there is no where to put your things, so when the AC leaked into the room we had to cram all of our things in front of the door. The walls are so thin you can hear people through them. The bed is so hard you might as well sleep on the floor. The sheets are as thin as tissues. There is no parking here, but there is paid street parking. When we parked to check in the attendant charged us $10R & when my husband went out to get the rest of our bags ten minutes later they tried to charge us another $10. We then took the car out and returned later and someone else insisted we pay another ten, we explained we had already paid, as there is a sign stating $10R daily parking, but he harassed us until we gave him a $20r, then he refused to give us change! We used google translate and he still pretended he didn't understand, so $30r to park one day on the street and another $10 beach parking. The only positive thing about this hotel is the location on the beach so you can walk to the dive companies and docks. It's not really a beach you'd want to spend anytime on considering how much nicer all the other beaches in the area are. I've stayed at much cheaper and much nicer places in Brazil, this place is a rip off.

very nice and cosy place directly on the cap. you are walking distance from all beatiful beaches. the place itself was very clean and beautiful internal decor. we stayed there in high season, but found the place walking in last minute.

Although I can agree that the Hotel has seem better days, but It's still a lovely place for a weekend getaways. The blue and white color reminds me of Greece. The breakfast is rich and the location is perfect. I would go back for sure.

Perfect location for someone looking for quietness with nice views over the Praia dos Anjos and it's activity. Praia do Forno is a real must, the effort to get there is largely compensated by the views and tranquility of the beach. Breakfast service could be extended on weekends.

Estamos em uma área tranquila e realmente a Praia do Forno é uma bela praia da região. Esperamos poder recebe-lo em um futuro breve. Obrigado.

It's in a great location. The food is good enough, but the creamed crab is most excellent. The rooms could do with new furniture and so could the bathrooms (they're well past their best before date). It does have a homely feel about the place so is very relaxing and all of the staff are very friendly.
