Lovely pousada in a typical old house and recently renovated. I loved the decor and colors, making it a jewel. We booked on internet for 3 nights; When we arrived we were given a pretty room warning us that the next day we could change it for a better one. In fact, the second room was spectacular, with a balcony... More

The Pousada Papaya Verde was a terrific place to stay. The rooms are very simple (some better than others - I stayed there at the beginning of my trip in Bahia and the end) but is completely made up for with the best staff around and a lovely breakfast -full of choices, for everyone. If you need a luxury hotel... More

We stayed at papaya verde for two nights a couple of weeks ago. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast fantastic. However, our three-bed room had a very bad smell of humidity and there was a leak in the roof. Overall positive experience.

Dear Christina, Thank you very much for your nice comments about our hotel. During your stay we were renewing our rooftop at one side of our hotel - and very unfortunately there was this unexpected tropical rainshower which within a very short period let the water penetrate the provisorial roof and some water soaked through the wall and dripped into...

The pousada is very well located, at 2 minutes from the beach in the neighborhood of Barra which is quiet, surrounded by a lot of nice restaurants (but not the good place to party). The place is lovely, with a really nice terrace, but a little bit "kitsch", everything is flashy green or lilac and it can be agressive on... More

I recently traveled to Salvador with my family and stayed for several nights at this fantastic Pousada! What an amazing place! Warm hospitality, inviting atmosphere, fantastic breakfast, a true oasis in the city of Salvador! The owners/operators could not have been nicer or more helpful! I would certainly stay again at this fine establishment!

This guest house is a real gem. It has a very good location in Barra near the waterfront and two city beaches where you can bathe with the locals. The surrounding area is rather safe. The tropical garden adds to the nice atmosphere. Breakfast is excellent. The room was simple but had a safe and a small refrigerator - very... More

We were here for Carnival 2015, and it was the right choice. It's is off the parade track enough that the volume of Carnival isn't too much if you want an early night (you can still hear it a bit) and there is no craziness right on the street. The rooms are fine and clean, and the breakfast is good.... More

We had a recommendation for this place from a friend of a friend so we had quite high expectations. To be fair there was a lot to like. The location is great being close to the Fort at Barra. The staff were really helpful and tried to decipher our English requests. They also helped us with a venue to spend... More

Situated in Barra, one of the best areas of Salvador, where you can find some of the nicest beaches of the city. Just a 3-minute walk to the first beach, 5 minutes to the "harbour of Barra" and located in a quiet and safe neighborhood.
