This pousada is run by Sean of Ireland (and a proud Salvadorian) and his able manager Nubia. I have nothing but respect for Sean and Nubia for being the nicest guides and hosts. They are truly engaged in the guests' well being. From airport pick up to small yet important details about the hood and the larger city... They are there to ensure a pleasurable and secure stay. This is a clean spot. Guys clean is important in the developing world! The breakfast is better than anywhere Try home made jams , tapioca, pão de queijo, omeletes and fruits but above all Nubia and her staff and their warm smiles shall win you over. Sean is there like an orchestra conductor ensuring that music flows beautifully...and beautifully it flows .... Enjoy!!!!
We enjoyed our stay here. The location was great because it was close to Barra Beach and nice restaurants that were all within walking distance. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was great. The staff was very accommodating and made you feel at home. For our first trip to Brazil, we were thankful that the staff could communicate with us in English and gave us a lot of helpful tips in getting around the city. I highly recommend this place!
We felt here like home. I spent more than 10 nights in this pousada and definitely we will returned. It is located 3 minutes walking distance from the beach and from the famous museum -Light House called Farrol de Barra. We walked safely every morning along the beach, joining a huge crowd of locals that walk, run, or bike by the beach around sunrise. A nice, huge mall is located within walking distance from the hotel. All rooms have private bathrooms and AC. This Pousada also have the best breakfast, served from 8 to 12, so one can enjoy the vacation time. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
we had such a lovely time at the Pousada Estreal do mar, the location is great near BARRA beach with full of locals and near the lighthouse. You can walk to the restaurants, Barra beach and for the city center you take a taxi or uber. WE would thank the wonderfull staff of the pousada -of them are like a family and we stayed almost a week:-). we will come back soon we are sure. Special thanks to NUBIA AND DANIEL, they are such wonderful person with full of smile joy and heart. And we had many questions and all of them they helped us:-))))) By the way breakfast was the best we had over our 3 weeks Brazil vacation and I can recomand you to watch the monkeys in the garden, they are so sweet and attention with the breakfast food.lol useful was also the laundry service , very nice:-) We wanna thank all the MANAGER AND staff of the Pousada OBRIGADO. Blessings and greetings from Berlin. WE MISS YOU. IT IS LIKE A HOME FAR AWAY FROM HOME!!!!…
The managers were extremely polite, helpful and friendly. Their advice for getting around the city was invaluable and was a great introduction to Brazil. They both spoke good English. The guesthouse is just 4 minutes walk from the beach at Barra, a superb area of promenade and sandy beach. The breakfast is delicious and the bedrooms are quiet (quieter at the back). A great place to stay.
