Very close to the beach, although arrial do cabo is a very small town so everything is close together. Its about 20 mins walk to the bus station. Beautiful view to watch the sunset 2 mins walk from the hotel. I had a good experience here. The staff did their job, but without a smile on their face, which was... More

Had such a nice relaxing time here when we visited in May! The rooms were amazing and the bed was huge! We had a really nice view over Arraial from our balcony. There's a steam room and pool to relax in along with a restaurant which does a nice breakfast. It's really near to Praia Grande and maybe a 15... More

I visited Arraial do Cabo recently to check out the scuba diving. I was staying in Rio so decided to make a 2 day 1 night trip and get some dives in. As Arraial is a mere 3 hours drive away from Rio - this was a very attractive option. Pousada Caminho do Sol is a lovely boutique hotel just... More

This is the best Pousada in Arraial do Cabo. You have the most beautiful view from both sides. You can relax by the pool, you can eat at the Restaurant located in the hotel. The bedroom is well equipped. The only problem are the stairs.

Every hotel has its rules and most of them are common sense, but that the "norms of our establishment" are presented upon check-in and you are only receiving your key upon signing them as a "responsible guest" is a unique feature of Caminho do Sol in Arraial do Cabo. At least, it never happened to me in my many years... More

Very relaxed and set around its own private garden and pool the hotel is an excellent retreat, although we spent limited time there as the beaches are so wonderful.

We stayed two nights at this pousada and enjoyed it very much. It's a lovely and very clean pousada, with a nice terrace overlooking the city and just a walking minute away from the beach Praia Grande. The staff was very attentive. Breakfast was good and we were surprised by the quantity of cakes they serve. We also had dinner... More

Great place- felt like we were very looked after. More of a hotel than a guest house, with a lovely pool area and decked area for the pool bar. Rooms very clean and enormous bed. Lovely balcony with great view over the city. Staff were helpful and booked a boat trip for us which we highly recommend- some amazing beaches... More
