I spent almost everyday at this pousada beginning the day with a swim in the pool and then a breakfast complete with fresh fruit and granola. My room was located toward the back of the pousada but I still had a lovely view of the sea (gorgeous to wake up to). The staff were super friendly, and as the place... More

A lovely 2 night stay during the World Cup. Very handy location to the airport as we had an early flight to catch. The Itapua beach suburb is approx 35-40 mins by taxi from Central Salvador, but quieter and the beach is very pleasant. The pool area is lovely with sun loungers and rooms are spacious and well appointed. Breakfast... More

Had a side room with "ocean glimpses". The same side where a couple of dogs are kept - one big, one small. Occasional noise from these, but nothing like the dogs over the road. But, closed windows with air con minimised the impact. There is a function centre next door, but noise stopped early. The Pousada was very accommodating with... More

So another Luciana and another fabulous experience in Bahia. Spent the night in an oceanfront suite with a balcony overlooking the pool and the beach. GREAT room, excellent bedding, excellent bathroom, perhaps the perfect shower ( with hot and cold water valves i.e. no "chuveiro"). Wound up here because we needed to leave Morro a day early or risk missing... More

Youre right at the start of costa azul which has the nicest beaches like flamengo and guarajuba. My... More

Pousada Poesia is an simple but confortable pousada direct ob the beach and very close to Salvador airport. Swimmingpool available. The breakfast is too sober. The price is too high and fully based on the location.

Liomar, Gerente at Pousada Poesia, responded to this review

Thanks for your opinion. We are delighted that you found our hotel comfortable. Regarding the price, the value is comparable to the hotels nearby, like Encanto, Mar Brazil or Alvorada, which we think are more or less at our level. If the only parameter were the location, the price should double, because our hotel is the only one directly on... More

We spent in Brasil a month and a half, visiting many places and sleeping almost every night in another place. That is why we feel free to spend a good word for the pousada Poesia which was our first accomodation in Brasil.

The location is great due to the proximity with the airport (for whom has an early flight!). There are also very typical restaurants around (with Acarajé, Tapioca, etc) and the restaurant Mistura (Very higly recommended!). The hotel is old and our room (nbr 4) smelled very badly! There was hair on the bed and bathroom was also not very clean.... More

Regarding your comments we should say that the decor of our pousada is rustic, the furniture is solid wood (angelim) and have a characteristic perfume. The floor is made ​​in the traditional way.
