While “slice of paradise” is a term used much too loosely, we truly felt it was the right description for Pousada La Bonita. The place is absolutely unique and genuine and the view is so spectacular, it seems unreal. We stayed in 3 different rooms and each one had its own charm and hammock to relax in. Their breakfast is amazing with fresh-squeezed local fruit and a wide variety of options. You can walk from the pousada about 50 meters to the beach. There is nothing touristy about Bahia Formosa, it remains an authentic place with friendly people. Everyone knows each other here and by the time we left we felt like we knew everyone too. We were sad to leave and promised ourselves we’ll be back. Perhaps more importantly, we felt totally safe and at home there. The owner, Ernesto, was frequently there with his lovely family. He went above and beyond to ensure we had an amazing experience. The pictures below barely scratch the surface... so many things to do, so many beautiful memories to make.

a perfect place to stay. Been there nearly three weeks and liked it very much. Very friendly people and very delicious food in the restaurant. Room and service were fine. Beach and nature are amazing. I can only recommend this place and Pousada Bonita. Thank you, Ernesto.

The ocean view is its most attractive feature. Simply stunning! The room is ample, breakfast is perfect (classical music and brie cheese), the staff is zealous and the pool makes you unwind. The access to the beach is super easy and very close. I recommend and would come back soon.

Excellent week at this Pousada!! Ernesto is a perfect host full of tips and good story about the Baia Formosa and its neighbourhood. Lots of great activity around (buggy to lovely beach landscapes, saling boat to see dolfins, nature walk, etc). But above all, the pousada is a little paradise with an excellent staff and perfect cook!! End your day on your private terrace with a caipi and splendid view to the bay!! Thanks for everyting Ernesto, this was just perfect!

The Pousada is nicely decorated and has a good location (you reach the beach by steps and have a 5 min walk to the town-Center). Our room (Nr. 7) had seaview and a hammock, enough space to put your belongings and a small but okay bed. But considering the expensive rates, you would expect things to function like the bathroom-door closing (it did not, so moskitos came in) or the toilet shower working (it was out of order and sealed, so it seems nowbody wants to fix it any time soon). Bath could be cleaner. The restaurant works all day long and has good (but also expensive) lunch and dinner-options, we liked lunch there with a beautiful view in the shadows. WLAN is okay, in the lobby it's good, in the rooms sometimes not working. Personal is nice and competent. Breakfast is great.
